Happy (almost) February! We are one month closer to Spring. I always enjoy the bareness of the house for the first couple of weeks after the Christmas stuff goes away, but then it starts to feel a bit bland and I start pulling things out of the basement. I put the "fresh baked pies" sign from World Market back over the sink and added a couple of faux rosemary topiaries that I picked up at Ikea on either side. I think they are the perfect size for a window sill.
I decided to leave the candle chandelier over the island after Christmas. We are considering adding a more permanent (and wired) light source over the island, but for now this fills the space nicely. I added a heart garland from the dollar spot at Target for Valentine's Day.
I also added a heart garland to the mantel shelf over our range.
Our microwave used to be on the shelf above where it sits on the counter now. I took it down to clean it and decided to leave it on the counter. I like the look of the open shelves.
I also changed things up a bit on the side of the fridge cabinet. I will be sharing more pics of that soon.
January has been a month full of organization around here and I will be sharing more about that soon.
