Decorating your home for Winter

The holidays are over, the decorations are taken down, now what? Does your house look really bare?

I decorate for each season, and especially enjoy decorating for winter. Leaving my snowmen collection out for a few extra months after the holidays fills our home with love and happiness.

Here is a little home tour for you to enjoy and hopefully be inspired by…

Our mantle, I use a wool fabric runner, ice skates that I bought years ago at Goodwill, a hat and scarf, antique mittens, some snowball candles and of course snowmen.

The Entertainment Center is decorated with an antique sled (left up from Christmas) ice skates and Snowmen.

And on the door of the Entertainment Center is a hanging that I made years ago.

The wooden rocking horse has even gotten into the spirit of winter.

For Christmas, I decorated the Hoosier cabinet with my  Snowman collection, I changed it a little for winter.

I’ve added a few Snowmen to the Buffet.

I especially had fun adding some of my favorite Snowmen ornaments to my Little Tree. I leave this tree out year round and change it for the holidays and seasons.

  1. I love the vintage feel that you achieved with the mittens and ice skates!

    My home is cozy for the winter, not via decorations, but by lots and lots of throws and blankets laying around available to snuggle up in at any time and tons of hot cocoa ready in minutes. Not a “cute” or “designer” look, but it certainly makes us feel cozy.

    Love the snowmen decorations! They are adorable!!
    I love having a variety of blankets around for wintertime and ability to make hot drinks. We still have our CHRISTmas tree and decorations up until daddy comes home.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Your decorations look wonderful! Great pictures!

    So, did you get lots of snow yesterday? :) We ended up getting around 5 inches. We had a snow day yesterday and a two hour delay today. Happy sigh.

    Stay warm!

  7. I like the idea of the little tree you keep up year long, changing it for the seasons. Love all the snowmen. Keep warm. It looks like you are getting a lot more snow than us, this week.

    Living in Michigan I also decorate for winter. We will have our last snow fall typical in April. Yes, the children hunt for eggs in the snow.
    I keep my snowman back and put them out after Christmas.
    I also leave evergreen swags and twinkle lights up on my mantle and vintage kitchen cabinet. I replace my santa collection with my snowmen and add snowflakes.
    I really like the idea of the skates and mittens!
    My outside decorations stay out and light all thru January and sometimes February unless we have a really warm day!

  9. Lovely decorations, Liz. I took my snowmen down with my Christmas decorations. Maybe next year I’ll keep them up a few more weeks… I just don’t like to dust around stuff! :)

  10. Love that you keep a tree out all year round :)

  11. I have a two year old who would love your house. She would run around hugging everything. It was all I could do to keep her from hugging her birthday cake.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  13. I love your winter decorations. The tree is my favorite. I’ve seen other people do it and have thought about doing it because it’s so cute! I think I’m going to keep my eyes open for a little tree to use and do that myself!

  14. Look at all your snowmen! They are awesome. it definitely says winter to me! Thanks for linking up at
