Wintery.... what I prefer.

I am not one to go crazy with "Christmas-y"decor. I do not have Santas and elves and other Christmas-y things around the house. I don't know why. I guess it's just not my thing.

BUT the wintery look IS my thing.....

....I will get out some red pillows, some red and green candies, and maybe some winter-y looking art. 

The latest addition is this vintage New Yorker cover from December 1967. 
Framed in one of my favorite metal frames....Thanks to Chet at ArtWorks!!'s so NOT your typical metal frame! 
I love this line because of the little beaded detail. It adds some elegance to the metal, and that isn't always an easy thing to do.

So, That's about it for my Christmas decor.

The funny part about me not liking Christmas decor is that I live on a street called Christmas Lane!!

That's right. Of ALL the streets to live on.....I picked Christmas Lane, where everyone goes crazy with Christmas decor and the cars start lining the streets the day after Thanksgiving! It's a little crazy. I begrudgingly oblige with this tradition every year. I am kind of a grinch about it. I'll bet you wouldn't have guessed that about me.....but it's true!! I guarantee that if my husband did not do all the work, there would be zero lights on the house. I know. I'll say it for you...BAHHHumbug!! :)


  1. Too funny about Christmas Lane. I'm not in much of a Christmas decorating mood either. Bah humbug to us both!!!

  2. i think i'm like you with christmas decorating. but i do love the lights!!

  3. I think that lamp is perfect for my new condominium in Philippines. Love that frame too! :)
