So have you taken down all your Christmas decor yet? I start to get a little antsy a day or 2 after Christmas to rip it all down. For some reason it just starts to feel like clutter, and I’m ready to clear everything out for the new year and start fresh.
Except…I couldn’t part with my sign just yet…I tried I really did, but it looked so lonely and sad sitting in the garage amongst the tools and cans of spray paint…
and my wintery candles weren’t ready to be put away either…
I’ll let them stick around a while longer, maybe until spring starts to make an appearance (ok so that could be a loooooooong time but for the rest of the month at least!)
I like how this feels clean and fresh yet still cozy…although it did feel a little bare the first day.
OK, and I just can’t help it, I have to share just one picture of my little man all dressed up for Christmas, I promise I won’t become THAT mom….
but really he is just too hilarious in his “fancy” onesie.
Now, why don’t they make sweatpants for women that look like an evening gown? We gotta work on this one ladies!
Love the flower pattern pillow. Do you know the name if the fabric? Thanks!

What a cute little man! Your winter mantel is so pretty with the sign and candles. I also really like your chairs. I’m stopping by from NTT on Coastal Charm and enjoying looking back through your blog. Love the blog design too.
Love your winter mantel and your new blog design. Your little man is too cute. Share all you want.
What are the candles in the jars IN – salt? sugar? sand? My daughter put votives in epsom salts but has a big melted mess in her jars now. :S
What a darling little one!!!
I just got a huge chalkboard… I have to repaint it but I can’t wait to try my hand at chalkboard art! You inspired me! Thanks… I think!
Your fashion forward little ladies man is a doll! I foresee this pic being shown to all his future girlfriends!
Of course the sign needs to stay – it’s amazing!
I love that you are keeping your gorgeous sign up! It is one of those pieces that is so perfect it deserves to stay up past the Holidays and well into the late winter months. ;) And that little man of your is oh-so-cute! Seriously!!! That little onsie and that belly! I am in love.
First of all OMG what a cute puppy!!! I feel the same way about Christmas Decorations I want it down right after Christmas. This year we went to visit friends the day after but the moment I walked back in the door I started taking down the ornaments and everything else. I didn’t even unpack my bag. My number one goal was out with the Christmas decorations and with the clean new year.
Kolston has that same onsie and it cracks me up!!!
Confession: I usually don’t put my Christmas decorations away until mid January! I love them. If it were up to me, I would keep them up all year long!! This year it may be earlier than that… Maybe :). I’m with you on the sweat pants evening gown!
We just got snow here last week so now it feels like Winter has really sunk it. I need that cozy Winter feeling now more than ever! I’ll be keeping some Wintery decor up too for quite a while. :)
Your winter mantel is lovely. And I’m so glad you posted the pic of your lil man! I love that onesie and he is just so cute!
Still working on the clean up, company leaves today, and I have short work week ahead;) It feels nice to clean things up but I will miss the relaxed feel of the season.
The sign is perfect!
The mantel is beautiful and should stay for a little while longer, at least! Post all the pics you want of that sweetie pie.
awe your little guy is so darling! love his little hat! your mantel looks amazing, as well!
Perfect mantel for January – love it. Your little guy is so cute. I can’t resist sharing a photo of my boys every now and again too. It makes your blog more personable. I got about half my Christmas stuff down yesterday, the rest will have to wait till the weekend now.
I did pack away all the Christmas decorations over this past weekend. It felt a little bare for the first day or two, but now it just feels open and spacious….and I am loving that! The sign and candles on the mantel look just right, very nice. I wish I had more winter-themed decor that didn’t just yell “Christmas”, but I do not. So, my next big punch will come with spring!
What a cutie pie! =) And yes, our decorations are down but I love your sign and would leave it up all winter! =) Happy new year!
It’s perfect for January! And your little man is so stylin’! Adorable!!
