(music because this is what I decorate my house to)
With Christmas packed away (that took me a while I'll have to say) I love a simple look. And with the idea of not boring you I didn't take every nook and cranny in our house for January.
The pink and all of the hearts are just about to come out. (some have been creeping already) So before they do here's January....
(and I REALLY take the photos so that I can remember what I did from year to year. And also so I can say, "hey, where's that??? I forgot I had that)
Our living room is a a light green color right now and I loved how the colors in this pillow were 'spot on' with the walls.
Add in a cozy throw and it's a new room!
I found both at HomeGoods and gasped out loud on my way out of the store when they caught my eye!
Birthday flowers from Scott
Lots of bright sunshine in the afternoon spilling into this room.
(pre mantle decorating... sorry)
A very special gift... oh my heart is full...
Light blue and red are my kitchen colors. Love this little tray I found.
Abigail picked these out at an antique store for me. (and bought them with her OWN money)
Ohhh Hitchcock... swoon...
Tea... always tea (love my Emma Bridgewater "A Year in the Country" mugs)
Snow Day tea and a tea cup Anna bought me.
My laundry is in the kitchen. Now, I need to explain this... Old Connecticut colonials have laundry in the basement. When we moved into this old house the laundry had been moved to the kitchen. AMAZING. Would I love a 'laundry room' like all new homes have? Well, yes of course. But for an old house like this I'm counting my lucky stars that I'm not in the basement.
(Abigail was home sick so I was washing all of her stuffies)
Back to tea... from Scott's Mom... Thank you!! I ALWAYS wanted an electric tea kettle with PROGRAMMABLE temps. Did you know that all different teas require different boiling temps for the tea to brew at it's best. Scott and I don't drink coffee (for no reason... I love the smell of it) But we are picky about our tea!
Abigail's room has a little snowman collection
My family room for sure has a Laura Ingalls Wilder theme. I love this print
My Mom added to my collection of hard cover Little House books
Abigail was home sick from school on Monday so she's in these :)
Lots of yellow and ocean blue in this room right now.
In our family room we love to do puzzles, play games, and just be together.
And leading to our playroom are my snowman family and lots of books
In our little entry way
Still hot chocolate on the dining room tea cart
~now all of the pink and hearts come out~
