Just Winter...

January is always hard for me. It's not Christmas... It's just Winter.

How does one decorate for just Winter? Do you decorate in a Winter theme? For Valentine's? For Chinese New year?

I wasn't sure, so I did a little of everything...

Snowballs with the pinecones...


Winter ornaments in the dining room...


We also put up a string of lanterns for Chinese New Year...


And then I couldn't resist... it was just so empty and bare when we took down our beautiful big Christmas tree. I missed it, and then I found this all year round tree on sale! It really is called an all year round tree! It is just a little skinny tree, but it fills a Christmas void in my heart. Ha.
And lots of people have all year round trees, so it's not super crazy.
And...it looks super cute all decorated for Valentine's


Little white-tipped pinecones for Winter...


Little M's heart garland in the window...


And the leftover candy canes from the Christmas tree...because I like them.

Your house is always so fabulously festive. Love all the decorations. We still have most of our Christmas decorations up...not because we don't have time to take them down but because the house is so dark and depressing once they're down.

And I'm with you...January is rather a depressing month. I spend my time pretty much 50% studying and 50% being a vegetable :)
