January Decorations

December decorations are packed away .


Not ready for spring colors – nor do I wish to go the earth tone colors – want something that is bright, cheerful and out of the ordinary.


The white, blue and silver are not colors I normally use. Why, don’t know  - just never did. Yet, I collect white dishes and love the cobalt blue items I have picked up over the last several years. I did use some of the white with Christmas and really enjoyed the look.

Doing this change after Christmas has been in the back of my mind for several months. It will not be something I use on a permanent basis – just a short fling of using some bling bling items!

Take a look!

So far, I am liking this winter look. Certainly different than what I usually do – but that is okay that I change things up a bit with the new look.


My sweet husband and I are thinking about doing some remodeling in the kitchen…well, we would not do all of it – but part of it. Will get a price quote – then decide what all we can afford to have done. The kitchen still looks like it did when the house was built 33 years ago. Still has the same stained cabinets along with the same Formica…did get different vinyl flooring several years ago.  The kitchen is beginning to show the wear and tear from all the use during these years.


Stay warm – we are supposed to have snow in the next three or four days.
