From Christmas to Winter

We spent part of yesterday afternoon taking down the Christmas trees and packing them away in the attic.  But not all of our Christmas decor gets packed away immediately after the New Year.  When I'm shopping the after Christmas clearance sales, I like to focus in on items I can use not just for Christmas, but also as winter decor.  It helps to make the house not look so empty after the trees are gone!  I love the sparkle mercury glass trees add to winter decor. 

My silver pine cone ornaments and glittery pine cone trees stick around after Christmas as well!

The silver wreath will keep its place above the fireplace mantel.

And my pine cone and red berry trees add a natural element to the winter decor.

So when you're out shopping for all those after Christmas bargains, look for some items you can use for Christmas and for winter.  It's a simple way to stretch your decorating dollar!

  1. I do the same thing! I always look for things I can use during other seasons.

    Happy New Year!

  2. That silver wreath is just beautiful!
