Winter decorations

I took down all the Christmas decorations on Dec. 26 and the house looked so bare. So I rounded up a few winter themed items and had just enough to make our breakfast look like a mini-winter wonderland.
Snow Baby
I made her out of sparkly white felt with a carrot shaped nose and she is wearing sweater suit that belonged to Nina her second winter.

Thrift store rug and twinkle lights on the valances.


  1. Aww, I had such cute clothes.

  2. What an adorable idea! And you little snow baby and the rug are just too cute. What a great idea to put the twinkle lights on the valances. Gives real winter sparkle.

  3. Beautiful decorations! Very nice!! I love clear lights and would leave them up all year if it was left up to me! Susan in SC

  4. Heidi, the twinkle lights are so bright that when I turn them on in the morning just before the sun is up, they provide just enough light that I can sit at the table and read my Bible.
    It is a very nice way to start my day.

  5. Nina, your uncle Bert got that outfit for you. He has very good taste :)

  6. I love the idea of the winter decorations. Every thing looks so desolate when the Christmas decorations are taken down it makes me sad. Thanks for the ideas.
