Hello! I’m so excited to be joining the Winter House Tour blog hop and if your hopping over from PMQ for Two – HELLO! And if you are new to A House + A Dog – WELCOME! This blog is all about beautiful living, comfortably in all aspects of our lives. Take a look around, learn more about me, take a house tour, and see my favorite projects.
Once the Christmas tree has been taken down, lights have been put away for next year, and decorations have been put back in their boxes the house can seem a little bare. The last couple years it has always been a great fresh start and this year was no different, but there were a few items I wasn’t ready to part with – greenery and twinkle lights.
I LOVE twinkle lights, like keep them around all year kind of love. Decorating after the holiday can be a little challenging. For me the house always seems so bare once the Christmas tress come down. So I decided to create this little vignette for our dining table to keep the holiday spirit alive for just a couple more weeks. A glass cloche is a staple for any season and can be used so many different ways. I filled the cloche with twinkle lights to create a simple light display.
I used items from around the house and items I already have to create this simple vignette and it only took a few minutes. I’ve challenged myself to a no spending spree for the next few months, so I’m challenging myself to use items I already have from our home. These glass hurricanes can be used for so many different displays and are a low cost solution to decorating.
Now that the tree and garland are gone from the Christmas dining room, I still wanted a small touch of greenery for winter. These faux stems were from the Target Dollar Spot a few years ago and I simply placed them in a skinny hurricane vase. For another natural touch, I kept my birch logs leaned against the wall. I have had the birch logs here since fall and they have been great for all the seasons and holidays. I love items that can carry on into each season.
California winters are always gloomy and rainy so a little bit of greenery and twinkle lights can go along way. It’s an easy transition into winter and doesn’t require spending any money. Win! 🙂
