Adding A Bit of Color & Romance During Winter

Hello friends.  Happy Sunday to you all.  The first snow fall of the season has arrived creating a pristine blanket of snow on the landscape.  I just love looking at the snow when it is undisturbed. There is something very serene and calming about fresh fallen snow.  Perhaps it is the picture perfect scene that it paints or the childhood memories that it brings.  But whatever it is, I find it captivating and inspiring.

The indoors however, seems to be a bit colorless these days, so I have been working on adding a bit of color around the house.  Adding lots of soft pastels to our home decor has done the trick.  Faux blooms have definitely taken center state in our home....

I have made a few trips to Michael's to pick up florals and decorative accessories to incorporate in my home decor.  And I must admit, I have developed a little obsession for faux flowers.  The choices and quality available these days is very impressive.  My creative side is certainly on overdrive, making faux floral arrangements, paper mache boxes and Valentine's Day favors.  All which I will share soon.

So today, I gathered a one of those pretty decorative pieces and faux flowers to create a sweet vignette that it's sure to lift the spirits and bring a bit of color to a bleak winter day.  

Enjoy the softness and romance.
























 





Thank you for stopping by.  May you have a beautiful week.

Janet
