Good morning dear friends. Vacation is officially over . It is Monday and my day job wants me back, the house is completely de-christmastized, the alarm clock is back into action and I am actually wearing shoes again.
The only thing in that list I am not sorry about is putting away the Christmas decorations. As much as I love the sparkly lights I couldn’t wait for my house to feel airy and free again. So I was actually quite early in taking the tree down this year. I have been enjoying the feeling of empty it left behind.
I have a bit of tradition that after the Christmas decorating frenzy I long for clean, simple and preferably white decorations. This year is no exception. Look at my three little house lanterns. Doesn’t get much simpler than this.
I bought these three iron lanterns in Fall, but Christmas stole their spot on the blog. They are back now. January is such a grey, dull month here that I really still need lots of candle light to cozy up my days and evenings (our weather is still basically in Fall mood, with lots, lots, lots of rain and grey skies, winter hasn’t arrived yet).
And these three lanterns work wonderfully in making me feel better. They came from a discount drugstore, and at half price I got them for a steal. So I splurged and bought three. They look so much better in a row.
I guess that’s it, for this first Monday in the new year. A bit of candle light to add warmth and light to your day…..
So how is January treating you so far? Still going strong with your new year’s resolutions or have you fallen of the wagon already? And is it winter in your parts?
Let’s cuddle up together with some hot tea and chat….
