Whimsical Winter Decor and Something New...

Have you put away your holiday decorations yet?  I have slowly been transitioning into a winter decor here, just taking our Christmas tree down today.  Having decorated in a woodland style this year, I was able to easily change it over to winter decor, just removing a few things and adding a few others!
I always have fun doing something new with the entryway area...


I started with the chalkboard...we finally did get a real snowfall last week, and it is looking like winter now.  I love chalkboards...you can change them whenever you like...free artwork!



My husband received this cute toy bear, with a book about bears this Christmas.  I gave the bear a cute little houndstooth wool scarf, and added him to a little snow scene.  
Silly, but he makes me smile...



It's such a simple little vignette for winter...


Before I go, I wanted to share something new with you...if you follow on my Facebook page you may have already seen it.  I have recently become a contributor to the Novica blog!


 I love how Novica empowers artisans from all around the world. I hope you will stop by and see my first post there!
Until next time...

  5. Such pretty decor. My holiday decor is still out but will go up soon. I'm working on getting more winter decor, it's nice to have somethings out between the holidays and Valentine's Day.

  6. Linda, I love the transition you made and your scarf wearing bear is adorable! I'm still finishing up putting away Christmas too. Congrats on contributing with Novica--I wasn't familiar with it but loved your tea time post!

  7. I think its perfect Linda. Love the bear with the hounds tooth scarf! I've always had a weakness for hounds tooth. My chalkboard still sits empty. I erased it and haven't taken the time to add anything new yet.
    hugs,
    Jann

  10. I love your winter vignette! I'm trying to simplify things around here...it's hard but I really need to downsize and I started with one of my collections..egg cups.

    hugs, Linda

  13. Happy New Year, Linda! I love whimsical decorating like your little bear with his houndstooth scarf. : ) Very cute! I have put all my decorations in one "loading area" (the coffee table) and plan on going back up to the attic to get my bins down to put all my Christmas décor away. Other than that, I have no idea what I'm going to do once that is all put away. I supposed I will move onto Valentine's Day décor (what little I've got) and figure something out as I try to fill in blank spots.

  15. You have created a charming winter scene Linda. I love bears, although whenever I am visiting our mountain property up in Idaho, I am afraid that I might run into a real one ;-)

    Big Texas Hugs,

  16. Happy New Years! I've been slowly taking my Christmas decorations down and have bought new containers to put everything in so I can clean out the old ones and get rid of a lot that I'm not using anymore!
    I love the snow scene you made and the chalkboard, I may copy the words but it won't look as good as yours, I'm not to good at chalk writing!lol

  26. I love what you left and changed up. I really thought about leaving out my white trees and snow. I wish I had seen this before putting things away. I think I'll got right now and change up my chalk board. I sure hope it snows.

  27. I love the little winter scene and the little bear. I like the Let it Snow on your chalk board. Perfect for the winter house! I haven't changed my chalk board in awhile, it hangs over Landon's chair and says 'you make me happy when skies are grey' and since it's true, I just can't change it :)))
    Have a wonderful 2016!!!

    Inspiring to see winter decorations still after the Christmas ones are gone.... I like that idea :)
