Winter in the Dining Room

Good morning my friends. Do you all have your Christmas away? I am so glad to say I do! It is a huge job, but I am liking the clean slate to cozy up each room! Today I will share my dining table, set for winter.
 The setting is a gold beaded place mat, black and cream dinner plate banded in gold, and the winter branches salad plate topped with a leopard votive holder. I love a touch of leopard always. I also paired a leoapard napkin with the hand embroidered napkins that were my Mother-in-laws.
 I love these pretty champayne flutes, from Pier 1 that were a gift last Christmas.
 My stately deer stayed on the table and I just changed the base with some pine greens and pine cones.
 I also brought out this beautiful black and gold runner.

 I love the gold flatware with these dishes too.

 Gold candles on the glass candle sticks and a votive under the leopard glass pieces.

 At night we can light the candles.

 The deer pillows are still here too.

 On my teeny server is the other deer. I just realized, I took these before I put the candles in the candle sticks:) The runner is snowflakes and I kept the gold bead garland.

                                          Thanks so much for your visit!

                                                       XO, Pinky

Winter in the Living Room

Good morning dear readers! I hope you all had a wonderful New Year, however you celebrated; either at home or out. Joe and I went to 2 parties. The second one was here in the neighborhood and so it was very nice to be right here to come home after midnight. Fun evening!
So, have you gotten your decorations all packed away? It has taken me 4 days and nights but it is finally done. I did some winter decor in the living room so thought I would share it with you all. This is a picture heavy post so please bear with me. The first picture is also edited since it turned out very dark even though the sun was pouring into the room.

The Santas are gone and my blue and white jars are back.
 We remembered that we had a third wooden lantern so placed it here.

 For the mantle I removed some of the garland and all of the reds and golds. Now it is just greens, magnolia leaves and pine cones.
 One of my sweet deer sits in the middle. I added some styrofoam balls as snowballs:)
 A vase with lavender on the hearth smells heavenly.

 Some mornings I sit here with a cup of hot chocolate. I don't drink coffee.
 I got a new pillow back in the Fall at an antique store that a friend told me about . I have been waiting impatiently to put it out:)
 I just LOVE it!
 I also have 2 new faux fur throws for the sofa.
 When I took these pictures the tree was still up. It is all packed away now.

 At dusk the lights come on.

 Blue and white pieces and Hummels fill the curio cabinet.

 Our daughter gave this to Joe for Father's day one year.

 This is a temporary vignette on the coffee table that will be changed out soon.
 Some winter birds flew in to join the party:)

 Thanks you so much for your visit. I took a little break after Christmas to be with family and friends but am now happy to be back!
                                                            Xo, Pinky
