J*A*N*U*A*R*Y ~ While We Wait...


J*A*N*U*A*R*Y
A time of waiting... A time of envisioning...
Come Mid-January our living spaces look quite sparse with all the Holiday Fussies now packed away... Our rooms become a *Blank Canvas*...  With so few Flea Markets in our area during Winter, I tend to work with what I have...  I re-visit Personal Vintage Furniture pieces along with my Stash of Shabby Adornments...  Freshening rooms with paint, adding new towels, pillows, lampshades, re-arranging furniture pieces - ALL THIS HELPS ME in making decisions "to pass this & that along" at one of my upcoming  SaLes...


Small Little Touches - like adding some live flowering
 bulbs in a basket, help me make it through the cold long
 winters here in the Midwest...
Bright... Cheery... Hopeful... 

********
I like to keep my decor Plain & Simple during
these  first few months of the new year... 
I search  for new decorating ideas via Pinterest &
 cozy-up with inspiring Magazines...

I begin to make lists of what I might be 
 On-The-Hunt  for come Spring when the Flea Markets are in full-swing again!!!




 With Valentine's Day 
just around the corner, I added this time-worn 
ViNtaGe Heart Brooch with re-cycled gingham bow 
from a girlfriend gift...




 The addition of this darling little ViNtaGe BiRdiE
reminds me that Spring, although yet far away
 - WILL COME!*!*!








THinK SPriNg!*!*!
The S*U*N is out Today  ~ And it's 40 degrees!!!
Tomorrow 3 - 5 inches of snow expected!*!*!
