It's rare that my little house doesn't have some sort of seasonal flair. I don't think I go too crazy, but I like to have something out to commemorate most holidays. For example, I have the sweetest little snowman figurine that transitions from my bathroom to my mantle after Christmas. He's more winter than holiday. In my opinion anyway. I also leave my vintage snowflake tree topper out and move it to the mantle to add a little winter sparkle. Justin thinks it's tacky. I love it. Good thing it's just my house so I have final say on all decorations. I'm sure some day (in the not so distant future, I hope) that will change.

This year I displayed my Christmas cards on an old window pane I have hanging in the living room. (It's from my grandmother's childhood home and I adore it). In an effort to display all of my nearest and dearest I just strung some baker's twine along the window and bought the teeniest little clothespins to attach the cards. I left them up for weeks after Christmas since I loved them so much, but with February quickly approaching I figured it was time. As I was taking the cards down last night I realized the set up was the perfect spot for my fab vintage valentines that my sweet friend Kelly gave me last year. I'm in love. (pun intended). This will likely be a seasonal transition that sticks every year.

Just had to share. Now I'm off to a council meeting and my self-imposed blog hiatus.

my winter mantle scape. i'm not typically a fan of figurines, but i looove this little snowman.
