Getting back to normal

I decided today to put some of the christmas decorations away.  I usually leave them out until New Years Day when everything gets put back in their storage containers.  Here are some random shots

Here is a little corner in my kitchen

The top of my kitchen cabinet is back to normal

AND I found this lovely potpourri which was on sale of course. I think I will leave this out all winter, it smells divine...

I love the way the light is dancing on the potpourri

I also found this faux mercury glass candle holder which I love ~ I may keep this out all winter too.  It has a lovely vanilla scent.

I will leave my mantel for now.  I love to sit in front of the fire with a cup of tea and look at the lights.  So soothing. 

Have you put your Christmas decorations away?

Can't wait to hear from YOU....




  1. Hi Marianne, Your kitchen corner is just adorable - I love the combination of turquoise and red. I'm ready to pack up my Xmas decor--it seems like I was just manically getting it all out and photographing it!

  2. Hi Marianne...

    Oooh...I love all of your vintage pretties! I also love your big white bowl of winter potpourri and your new mercury glass candle! Ohhh boy, I haven't even begun on getting my Christmas decor put up...eeks! It's always so much more fun to put it all out...then to put it all away! Hehe!

    Well my friend, since this is my first time to visit...I took a meander around your delightful blog! I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed your Santa collection that you decorated the top of your cabinet with! They're sooo beautiful! Thanks for sharing them with us! I also wanted to thank you for stopping by for a visit! I really enjoyed your sweet note! It's so very nice to meet you, Marianne!

    Wishing you and your family a blessed and Happy New Year!
