New Year Changes






The Christmas decor has been taken down.


My Christmas tree in the window is now replaced with a new white slipcovered chair.  

Found this cute heart throw at HomeGoods.
Love my new chair that I found on FB Marketplace for $35.  SCORE!

Another HomeGoods find was this cute heart pillow.

 

I like my new $35 dollar chair in the spot to replace my Christmas tree.   
Buddy loves it because he can look out the window from this chair. 
He likes being the neighborhood watch!



I usually do not decorate for Valentines day but after Christmas came down I wanted something before Spring and Summer decor time.

I found that cute PS I love you sign and hang it on my mirror with command strips.

I like my simple Valentines decor.
How about you do you have your Christmas decor down?   
Have you stared at open spaces to think what kind of decor can fill in the empty spaces!?

I like this simple white chippy Valentines decor to replace my Christmas.

I do miss the twinkle of the lights at night.

Hugs,
Kris

  1. Love the heart throw and pillow! My Christmas decor came down the day after Christmas. I don't decorate for Valentine's day, so things are back to normal.

  2. I love the way you decorated your mantel and the mirror Kris. I have all of my Christmas decorations down and packed away. I don't do winter decorations or Valentine's Day because I just don't have enough room to store it all. I used to do Valentine's decorations when my daughter was small. I now like to do fall and Christmas decorations. Wishing you a happy new year Kris.

  6. Your new home looks beautiful, Kris! My tree is still up, I will most likely take it down this weekend....unless I decide to squeak in one more week of twinkly lights!

  7. I will take most of our Christmas down this weekend. I do leave up some twinkle lights and my nutcracker collection.

    I love your new chair. The heart pillow and throw are perfect for you.
    Give love to Buddy!!

  8. Very pretty, Kris! And great buy/find on that white chair. You could still use twinkle lights in your mantle decor...I still have fairy lights/twinkle lights, whatever you want to call them, hanging from a shelf in my living room (over pegs) and around the window in my kitchen. Love the glow of the lights on dark winter days and at night.

  9. KRIS! I LOVE IT!

    How pretty your mantle piece looks and as soon as my renovation project is done (completely, I hope, by the end of January) then I am going to rearrange things myself from how they were in my living room before the project. I will bring out my subtle pink velvet pillows to celebrate Valentine's the entire month of February. You are such an inspiration!

  12. Why don't you put up the twinkle lights that you so loved some place else? I love how the wood blinds look behind your curtains. Buddy is a very good neighborhood watch dog!

  16. Ooops P.S. Did the white slipcover come with the chair? If not, where did you get it? I have a similar chair style that I'd like to slipcover.

  20. Everything looks so pretty, Kris. I love the new chair, and what a find that was! Buddy's so sweet. Your mantel is stunning, and the heart throw and pillow look great with the rest of your decor. I'm in the process of packing away Christmas, although I am leaving the tree with lights only; I removed all the ornaments. I like the warm glow in the evening. Have a great weekend! Hugs.
