A Winter Vignette for the Coffee Table

I am doing a little departure from my usual decor after Christmas. Instead of just going back to the everyday decor I am incorporating a little bit of winter! I started with the coffee table. As I put Christmas away I NEED to fill those spaces and now I am doing things a little differently! I found these cute little vintage looking children, perched on snowmen way before Christmas. I saved them knowing just what I wanted to do with them! The little girl is tooting her horn, maybe saying,"come on, let's play"!!!
 She is sitting on a silver bowl turned upside down. The bowl was my mother-in-law's.
 And this is the little guy. I love the vintage LOOK of them and that they are "snowy".
 The snowflake lantern was a housewarming gift from my BIL and his wife when we moved in. I love it. It holds a tall cream candle that casts a soft glow at night. The way the sun is shining through it shows what it looks like at night too!!!
 Everything is sitting on this new runner that I found at KMart! It was the only one but the perfect size for my coffee table! The large sugar pinecone rests against the lantern.
 I added some greens and pinecones to mimic the runner.

 I love the pinecones that are tipped with "snow".

 I also decided that for the pillows all I had to do was flip the Christmas ones  over to the plain side. The other side is all glitzy for Christmas.

 The green and red match the colors of the runner too.
Thanks for your visit. I hope wherever you are, you are staying warm. I had to go out last night and it was 12 when I was comig home. Thank God for heated seats and car. I also have a heated steering wheel which I thing is the best thing since sliced bread:):):).
XO, Pinky

  4. You and Yvonne @ StoneGable have similar tastes, Pinky.
    Happy New Year !!

  5. So pretty Pinky! It is always hard to go from Christmas to the new year. I am working on my first winter mantel and trying to tell myself it doe snot look like Christmas!) Again love your vignette.

Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Shirley! When I saw those "kids" I fell in love!!!

  7. Your coffee table is beautiful--love the snowmen and pine.Your living room is beautiful, too. So warm and inviting for winter, with throws to cuddle up in and soft, velvet pillows. Lovely!

  8. Pinky,
    Adorable SNOWchildren atop the SNOWmen!!!
    That table runner "was meant to be" on your coffee table!!!
    Love the vignette you've created with the SNOWflake lantern and natural elements!!!
    Baby, it's COLD outside is an understatement!!!
    Light your candle and enjoy!!!

  9. This vignette is perfect for the winter season! You've done a great job combining all the right accessories for just the right look. The lantern is lovely and the vintage children ornaments add the 'snow" vibe. I really like that you added some greenery and pinecones, so natural looking - really do mimic the runner!


  10. Que bonito post, me he paseado por tu bloc y me ha encantado.
    Te animo a hacer una ojeada en el post de esta semana y seguro que veras algunas ideas realmente interesantes.Deseo que te guste y si es así me alegraria que te hicieras seguidora. gracias por visitarme.

    1. Even though I can't read this I want to thank you for your visit and comment!

  11. Love it Pnky! The little snow people are just darling and the runner is just perfect! I have one tote that I label Wintry décor and hold it back just to have something a little fresh after Christmas. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  12. Perfection! The warmth of winter without the cold. The children are adorable in their frosty snow kissed costumes setting on the the table. The runner is perfect with the lantern and pinecones on the coffee table. I am not ready to let go of winter yet either. Snowflakes and snowmen are still residing on the breakfast table and the mantle in decorated for the season with woodland animals. I am content..... Candy

  13. It is winter so why not create accordingly? I think we need to make the most of every season. In your vignette, I particularly like the pine cone runner, a perfect background.

  14. It's lovely, Pinky. I can see why you didn't pass that sweet girl on a snowball up, and the bowl is perfect for it. I can't believe your luck in finding that beautiful runner--at Kmart?! I noticed it right away Just goes to show never know!

    (BTW, Julia (comment a few before mine) said she has spent some time browsing through your blog and has loved it. She invites you to visit her and follow her if you like what you see.)


    1. OH! Thanks you for translating for me, Zuni!!! And thank you for your sweet comments.

  15. Lovely! Those figurines are adorable and perfect for the vignette. Love that lantern!

  16. Linda please contact me about revising my blog I have written to you several times with no responses and I would really like you to help me out please contact me. susie @

  17. The little children are so very cute. I was just thinking a few days ago about how my mother would use "scarves" on top of tables and even on our refrigerator to add color for the seasons. She often worked very hard to make them with embroidery and crochet. I don't have very many of them but plan to make a few more myself.


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
