Ohio weather can be so gloomy but I came home a little early a couple of days ago-the sun was shining and reflecting off the snow on the ground outside. The house just seemed to say, “time to grab a few pics Chris.” I try to pick up my camera once a week or so and just practice. These pics are the product of that practice. I would really love to take a photography class but there always seems to be something else that seems more important. Maybe one day……..
So I spruced up just a little corner of the house and snapped away.
I love decorating the fireplace mantel. I am not certain how many more restyles will be taking place on this particular mantel as there will be an inevitable move in my future so best to take as many pics as I can. There have been many, many good memories made around this fireplace and I will certainly miss it.
Love the silver pieces with the white candle sticks. The little pom and bell garland was from an after Christmas clearance at Target.
The first snow is always the prettiest in my opinion!
I recently made some new checked pillow covers. They’re reversible-one side is a soft flannel, they other is a checked cotton. I love doing this with pillow covers because it gives you more bang for you buck.
You can see the reversed flannel pattern here on the bed:
And yes, I sort of move things around the house…a….lot.
Disclaimer: this final shot was NOT taken on my sunny day I first mentioned. This one was taken with artificial lighting because of another gloomy Ohio day but…..Roses brighten my winters.
And spring is just around the corner!!!
Take care and stop back,
