When the front porch lost it's holiday look, I was unhappy with the emptiness of it all. While loving the uncluttered and fresh look inside, the outside wasn't happening for me. So, I put the wreath back on the front door. :) Since January is "normally" associated with snow and snowmen and cold and ....well you get the picture, I decided to go with a white Nordic look. Kinda' funny since it's been in the 60's so many days here lately (not complaining one bit!). Now it's winter on the porch, while the daffodils are popping up like crazy in the front yard and I even had a clematis bloom this past week.
I put "snow" on the wreath. :) And added my shabby white glittered snowman on the shelf.
The old painted white vintage sled got some fresh spruce greens (it snowed on them too:) and graced with a pair of old black ice skates.

Snow tipped pine cones in the rusty white lanterns.
Peeking in the front door, can you see my newest acquisition for the family room makeover? Probably not, since you've never been here before but guess. :)
Keeping with the airy and icy tones of French Nordic, I wanted to show you my paper whites, planted in the old bucket. It won't be long before they will fill the room with their gorgeous scent.
Keeping with the cool winter Gustavian whites, look what I found the other day. Someone made lampshade covers from an old cable knit cotton and silk sweater. They are small, measuring just 5" tall and 6" in diameter and just perfect for a little extra charm and flair in the room decor. Have a winter shade and a summer shade. These I have put on my website. I am wishing you a wonderful week. I'll be out treasure hunting one day and having lunch with some old friends another and sofa looking another.
Please join these wonderful parties this week. Always something to ooh and aah over.
