Beautiful kitties-even though they were a bit ticked off.

I got a laugh over the unhappy cats!

Ok, you guys, any ideas about winter decor? I've hit a dead end with my fireplace mantel. I finally just got an antique stoneware punch bowl and piled it with glitter balls. I added more glitter balls around it, along with the natural stones I always have on the mantel. It is very simple, and it isn't the best look I've ever had.

For the entry table, it is just a vintage bread bowl with moss balls and pinecones piled in it.

I need some inspiration! What are you guys doing?

Now the decorations are down the house looks dull. Maybe time to share some ideas on keeping it interesting in the winter months are needed?

I replaced cranberries and epsom salts in my hurricanes with coffee beans and predictably corks what else to use to change it up a bit ???

Good question. I always eat all the cranberries.

Someone on a Fiesta Facebook page I visit decorated with accessories -- and of course Fiesta -- in citrus colors. Citrus is in season right now, so it looked very cheery and sunny.

I always go with a more sparse, quiet look after the holidays. I keep my "winter woods" stuff out - pine cones, bare branches, birch logs. I take out all the glitter in the living room and I display candles instead of stuff like my usual carnival glass. I take out all my cobalt blue and orange accessories and pillows and replace them with moss green and brown and winter white stuff.

The exception is my dining room (separate from my living room - it's a separate room altogether). In there I hang Mardi Gras beads from the chandelier and I have a big glass bowl in the center of the table that I fill with Mardi Gras beads too. My front door and porch has Mardi Gras decorations going on (wreath on door and beads hung from the light fixtures, Mardi Gras door mat).

That's how we roll around here till Easter. In the spring I add back the cobalt blue but not the orange stuff.

I have two distinctly different pieces of art that are a sort of focal point in my living room - one is a bare tree done in moss green, brown and winter white. That's my "cold weather" art. The other is a very colorful painting with lots of trees, a small stream with a blue boat in it, lots of orange and blue and deep green and bright green I hang that up from about the end of April through Thanksgiving and then I have the "winter" picture up from Thanksgiving through March. I also change out the lamps because my "warm weather" lamps are colorful and have orange shades. During the cooler months, I change those out to two lamps with brown bases and ivory shades.

We have a brown leather sofa so it's easy to switch out the pillows - browns, greens and white in the winter and blues, greens and oranges in the summer.
