Cozy Winter Home Tour – Part One

Today I’m sharing part one of my cozy winter home tour.

Cozy Winter Home Tour

I’m sharing my home along with a group of blogging friends for a Keeping It Cozy Winter Homes Blog Hop hosted by Amber of Follow the Yellowbrick Home. You’ll find links to all of the home tours at the end of this post.

If you arrived here from Thistle Key Lane, welcome!

Living Room

Welcome to winter in our living room. This room is Sherman’s number one hang out spot.

I decorated the cloche in front of the mantel with Deodor pine cones and a vintage German Christmas card that was my grandmother’s.

The mantel is simply decorated with DIY wood lanterns and white candles.

My husband gives me a Swarovski snowflake ornament every Christmas. I leave them out until March.

My grandmother’s chest is decorated with P. Buckley Moss ornaments and brass candle holders with white candles.

Mama gives my sister-in-law and me a P. Buckley Moss Christmas ornament each year. Ornaments with a winter scene are perfect to enjoy in January.

All of my brass candleholders were purchased at Kirkland’s in the early 90s.

Dining Room

The dining room is also decorated for winter.

The table centerpiece is DIY frosted branches in a vintage ice bucket that was a prize for winning a tennis tournament.

Pinecones, a candle, and a lamp decorate my grandmother’s washstand.

The pinecones were sprayed with spray snow and you can see how I made the frosted candle here.

The buffet is decorated with a silver tea set and Czechloslvakian blue vases that belonged to Mr. SP’s grandparents.

My mother-in-law gave these to me very early in our marriage and I treasure them.

It’s too cold to enjoy sitting on the sunporch but we still enjoy it as we use it as the main entrance to our home.

This area is decorated with a vintage painting that my friend gave me, a bowl of spray-painted pinecones, a lantern from another friend, and a throw, just in case it is warm enough one day to enjoy porch sitting.

To the left of the door is this sled that my grandfather made in the 80s. I stenciled it at some point and last winter gave it a much-needed makeover.

Angie of Postcards from the Ridge found this Jefferson Cup in a Tennessee thrift shop and kindly sent it to me. The glass snowman was a Goodwill find. My cousin made the snowman card.

  1. Good Morning! Your winter decorating is beautiful. Your blog still makes me so homesick. None of my friends here even know who P. Buckley Moss is. I love your ornaments. I have my mothers and treasure them. Continued prayers for you and your mother. Jane Burch

  2. Hi Paula! Oh, your home is so cozy and pretty! The view of your two chair by the fireplace gets me every time. I love your style. You’re in my prayers.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  3. Your home is beautiful!! All of your lovely keepsakes and collections really do make a house a home. Your gifts of Swarovski crystal snowflakes are Amazing. Love those, and the vintage Christmas card from your grandmother. All of your decor is so special,holding so many wonderful memories.
    I had to smile to see your glittered white branches. Many years ago, in 8th grade Home EC class, I made some like this, and a paper mache snow man, for my Mother. As I am now 82 years old, you know it really was MANY years ago, and I still love crafting. Anyway, I wonder if schools still teach Home EC. Sending warm wishes from cold WI.

    1. Thank you so much, Bonnie. I was so sad when they cut out Home EC at the middle school where I taught. A few years after they did, a student asked me, “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a class where we learn to cook and sew?”

  4. Thank you so much for reminding me of the P Buckley Moss ornaments. I have a smaller collection than you, but I love them as well as her artwork. You are right, the winter scenes are perfect for January. Now to find them!

  5. Your home is so lovely, every room. Love, love the blue vases! You are a true decorator and I love all your family items. Warm and cozy.

  6. I’ve always loved P. Buckley Moss. Those ornaments are amazing! You always have the most gorgeous and precious sentimental family pieces. The crystal ornaments are perfect for “winter”. Hope you’re having a wonderful cozy weekend. Sherman looks like a real cuddlebuddy!

  7. Love P. Buckley Moss. I do counted cross stitch and seeing your ornaments makes me want to get a P. Buckley Moss pattern and start something to stitch. Also, I worked for a company who had a plant in Stuarts Draft Virginia, and I was able to get a few items from Virginia Metalcrafters shopped for me and sent back up here on one of our trucks. Was sorry when they were no longer in business as I collect brass candlesticks and am always looking for something different to add to my collection. In fact, I started my collection after a trip to Colonial Williamsburg.

    1. In part two of my winter home tour, you can see a P. Buckley Moss cross stitch that I did in the 80s. I miss Virginia Metalcrafters and regret not buying more when it was still open. When I was growing up, VA Metalcrafters provided wood shavings for the horses’ stalls where I rode.

  8. Paula..those ornaments are sooo cool! Now I want to collect them!! Seriously! I love your sparkly branches too! Thanks for the tour!

  9. All your wintry details inside look perfect. I love the simplicity of the white candles in brass candlesticks and just the pretty treasures displayed here and there. The sunporch makes me sigh! It looks so wonderful for winter, I would love to set and watch the snow there!

    Thank you so much for joining the hop!

  10. I ADORE vintage winter scenes. I have started a collection of winter barn scenes and they are my favorite pieces to collect right now. Those winter scene ornaments are amazing!!!

  11. I never tire of seeing your home and “hearing” about your family treasures! Just beautiful. I swear my blood pressure goes down 10 points just going through your posts!
