Winter Freshening

I got all the Christmas decorations put away and then set out to do a little Winter freshening up around the place.  I really wanted to incorporate some of the items I acquired at the auction I posted about here.  Please forgive my picture quality.  For now, my iPhone is my camera.  Hopefully that will change some time this year!  So here's what I came up with for the next little while.......

Everything but the books under the fan came from an estate sale or auction.

Just look at the table decor and not the toys from the grandchildren!

The scale and the rooster came from the New Year's auction.

I saw this idea recently and just loved it.  

Rust and white, old books, and a chippy stool....mmmmm.

Cute little wine cabinet my hubby got me.  There's another fan!

I had a couple of things I wanted to keep around after Christmas.  So I decided to just "unchristmasfy" them.  Do you like that word?  Here they are....

I just hung pictures instead of Christmas cards on my kitchen pass though window.

Removed the red berries and added the "K" on my burlap wreath.

A glimpse of our family room.  Lot's of livin' going on here.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  Blessings!
