Cozy Winter Home Tour – Part Two
I’m back with part two of my cozy winter home tour. If you missed part one, you can see it here.
I so much enjoy decorating our home for each season. Our family room is the perfect spot to get cozy on a sofa and watch the snow fall.
The coffee table centerpiece is a wooden bowl filled with faux snowballs and twinkle lights.
The end table holds a winter vignette that includes a DIY snowman candle holder, a vintage beer can from Mr. SP’s collection (see more here), and a red glass candle holder, most likely either Blenko or Fenton, that belonged to my grandmother.
On top of the pie safe is another winter vignette.
The lantern was my grandfather’s and the covered bridge tray was found in a local antique shop.
The postcard and candle were purchased in Vermont.
The other coffee table and corner are also decorated for winter. My grandfather made the wooden piece under the candle for my grandmother to use for Garden Club floral design competitions.
The light was my grandmother’s and Sherman found the deer antlers. I purchased the vintage radio at a neighbor’s yardsale.
Sherman relaxes in his leather chain in this corner most nights.
A winter vignette decorates the table. Mama gave me the spool, the needlework was found in a New Mexico thrift store, and I made the frosted candle.
The pie safe is also decorated for winter. The Coca Cola lumber art is from the 40’s. I left my Econolite in place from Christmas and added my grandfather’s pipe and tobacco holder and a small bottle.
Mama’s family lived on a farm and threw their trash into the gullies on the farm. If you know where to dig, what was trash and now is a treasure can be found. This small bottle is one treasure that I found.
Frosted branches a european plate complete the display.
This corner is decorated for winter. Read about the winter art here.
The postcards are from Vermont and the blue bible was given to my grandmother on Christmas Day in 1926.
Our breakfast room is where Mr. SP works when he works from home. He prefers to go to work but we’ve had winter weather this month that has forced him to stay home. Sherman thinks he is staying home to pet him, so he is by his side all day long.
The table centerpiece is a toolbox that my dad made filled with pinecones sprayed with faux snow.
I have a growing collection of suncatchers that I love to display on the breakfast room windows.
I love the winter snowflake suncatchers that I ordered from Etsy. Get a sneak peek at my Valentine’s Day suncatchers here.
I so much enjoyed sharing my cozy winter home tour with you. I hope you enjoyed it.
Your decor is wonderful. I look forward to what you use to make your home so charming.
and my prayer circle continue to pray for you. Hope you get into the trials.
Thank you so much Loretta. Thankfully I am in the trial, I just need a start date.
Praying for you and all who have cancer.
Thank you so much, Susan.
All so very unique and so personable. Nice find with that tray and I love the wall art behind Sherman’s chair! I also love the tool box display, nice work dad! I am curious about your breakfast valance style curtains? I love the way those hang on the windows. We’re those handmade or bought? If bought do you recall where or the name on them?
How are things with you personally? I haven’t seen an email from you recently and I don’t know if I’ve missed anything. Hope everything is going in the right direction! 🌸🙏🏻🌸
I made the valences using a Pate Meadows pattern. I tried to look up the pattern name but their website is down right now. Emails are being sent every time I share a new post. I found out last week that chemo isn’t working, so I desperately need for the clinical trial in Fairfax to start.
Prayers to you. Be strong.
Thank you so much, Nancy.
Paula, your home is so pretty. I just love how you have incorporated things from your grandparents into your decor. No matter what style of decorating we use, those things ALWAYS will fit in well.
I am so sad to hear about your health, but very hopeful that you will get into the clinical study. When will you find out? Am I correct to assume you had to apply to get into the study? Do you do that through your oncologist? My dear friend’s son was in a clinical study but I never learned how that process works. You are in my prayers daily. I just want you to be healthy. I pray it is in God’s plan for you to be healed. You are such a beautiful person and I know you have so much more to offer our world. May God watch over you, sweet Paula.
I love your family pieces and you always amaze me when you know every detail about each. I have some that I need to make notes about before I forget their story. I love those snow sun catchers. Beautiful.
Thank you so much, Leslie.
I am in the study, I just need a start date. I so much appreciate your prayers and support.
Prayers for you. Hope you can get into the clinical trial soon.
Thank you so much, Connie.
Thank you so much, Connie. I so much appreciate your prayers and support.
Paula, your home is so cozy, warm, and inviting! I couldn’t choose a favorite vignette because they are all well thought out and beautiful. Your home is such a reflection of you: your heart for teaching and your love of people. Thank you so much for sharing yourself, your family, and your adventures with us. You are a joy and a treasure.
You and your family are in my prayers daily.
Thank you so much, Suzanne.
Sweet Paula, it saddens me that your news wasn’t what we prayed for, however, I do believe that God’s mighty healing hands will bring you strength when you need it most and the health you’ve been missing out on. As always, I will continue with my “Knee Mails” to our Heavenly Father on you and your family’s behalf.
Your home always looks amazing, and frankly I don’t know how you manage it, but well done! I especially love your “Made in Canada” maple syrup can and your granddad’s pipe. I too have my granddad’s pipe and it’s original delft blue pipe holder, from The Netherlands dating back to the late 1800’s. Considering my dad came from a family of ten and I am the youngest out of nine, I feel blessed to have this among my cherished treasures. We live in the midst of Amish and Mennonite country near St.Jacobs Ontario Canada, where sugar shacks and sap lines, Canada’s version of liquid gold, are as familiar as oil lines and drilling rigs in Texas. Maybe one fine day, my social friend, you’ll make it up to the great white north, were we’d love to show you the beauty of our area, share a meal with schmecks appeal, and hit the local markets and antique shops.
Until next time, keep your faith up higher than your chin and know that you have an army of prayer warriors on your side.
Your friend in the Great White North,
I would love to visit your area, Carol. Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
Everything is beautiful as always.
I love the antlers Sherman found
Thank you so much, Cindy.
So pretty Paula. I love that Sherman found those antlers. And I can see him just as warm and cozy as can be in that leather chair. Love that little corner. Hugs.
Thank you so much, Kim.
Praying for you to get well…
Thank you so much, Donna. I so much appreciate your prayers and support.
Lovely vignettes as always, Paula and Sherman is the best of all! Bless him!
Thank you so much, Jayne. Sherman is a joy.
Really a pretty Winter look. It is Wintery without being cold. Your home still looks warm and cozy. Thinking of you and praying for the clinical trial. God Bless You and your Family definitely includes Sherman.
Thank you so much, Ann. I so much appreciate your prayers and support.
Your home is beautiful and you’re in my prayers, sweet Paula.
Thank you so much, Sheila.
Your winter decor looks so peaceful and cozy. I love the suncatchers!
Thank you so much, Liberty.
Paula..I spotted the tool “caddy” right away and new someone special had to have made it. I have one very similar that my husband made on my table as well. Also the green picnic basket…all precious! I agree with the others your home is lovely and welcoming.
Continued prayers for you and your family.
Thank you so much, June!
It’s so great to get the stories behind all the family pieces!
Thank you so much, Michele.
Prayers from Bedford VA for your speedy admission into that clinical trial!
Thank you so much, Mary. I so much appreciate your prayers and support.
I’m sure you came home with so many more winter ideas from Vermont.
Hi, Paula! Love all your sweet vignettes and the stories that go along with them. Also love that Sherman helps you forage for decor!!! How on Earth did you come up with awesome family room valances? I’ve never seen any so pretty uet unfussy! Praying for renewed strength for you as you enter the new clinical trial. Also praying for your sweet mom! Big TX hugs ❤️
Thank you so much, Stephanie. Mama and I so much appreciate your support. I made the valences in our family room using a pattern from Pate Meadows.
So lovely and wonderfully cozy, Paula. Once again, what makes your decor so special is the personal connections you have to every piece.
I am praying that you go that spot in the clinical trial, Paula.
Thank you so much, Amy.
Wow! Hats off to you Paula. it’s not easy making such a large room feel cozy — and it is! That rug is stunning!!!
Thank you so much, Diane. The rug is about 25 years old and I love it as much now as I did when I bought it.
That’s the sign of a great purchase!
Thank you so much, Diane.
I really like the pinecones and all of the green dishes on display! And the stained glass snowflake!
Thank you for sharing this at the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop
Ridge Haven Homestead
Thank you so much, Laurie.
Oh my, I love your decor! It seems like a cozy place to be!
Our decor is a mix between my husband and me, so it’s not that cohesive. I hope to change that soon!
And good luck with that next chemo as a bridge to the clinical trial! You are in my prayers!
Visiting from the Homestead Blog Hop!
Thank you so much, Dominique. I so much appreciate your prayers and support.
I always love seeing you beautiful decor and learning about all of your pieces, Paula! You created such a cozy and welcoming home, and those snowflake suncatchers are amazing! Pinned!
Thank you so much, Lynne!
Thank you so much, Lynne.
As usual, I enjoy seeing your home and your family treasures! I pray for you every night, too!
Thank you so much, Kathy. I so much appreciate your support and prayers.
Thank you so much, Kathy.
I also love to decorate my home with family keepsakes and found treasures. I display items that make me smile when I see them, which I imagine you do as well. I love your vignettes, and your seasonal displays! I don’t have quite the flair for decorating that you do, but I’m working on it!
Thank you so much, Lori.
