As I’ve said before, I have D.A.D.D. That’s Decorating ADD for those of you not in the know about my made up diseases. I was all excited about taking down my Christmas decor and getting things cleaned up, but the thought of having the same decor until next Halloween frightened me.

I’ve been looking all over for a winter print for my mantle, but I’m having no luck. However, I thought I’d add some touches of winter around the house. These urns are one of my favorite things to decorate. The changes are endless.
The benefits of being surrounded by pinetrees, is of course, free pine needles and pinecones. Add a little fake snow and a bird’s nest for good measure–oh, and I think I stuck some seashells in there. Recipe complete!
I’ve been eyeing the birch candles at Pottery Barn for months, but there was no way I was going to spend that kind of money. Good ol’ Target pulled through with a half off sale!
My biggest deal, however, is these trees. I got the big one for $15.00 a couple of months ago. She was regularly $30.00, but she was beat up. Bark falling off, paint chipped, and tears streaming down her face. I held out for the other one until after Christmas, and I got her for $7.50 (normally $20.00!).
My hot gluegun and I went to work on them, and they are nearly as good as new. Just don’t look too closely!
There you go…my winter decor. We face the perils of snow and winter for too long here not to acknowledge it as a season!
Next up? My winter wreath! I’ll be back!
