Today I was invited by my friend Terrie , for a January Challenge on giving our readers inspiration for warming up your home for winter. Challenge accepted! Styling my home for winter has definitely been a first for me, but I am enjoying how much warmer, my home feels!
I started by adding several small flocked trees that I purchased from Target this year. I believe the smaller ones were only $3 and the larger ones were $5. I love antique crocks and decided to add the flocked trees to my vintage crocks. Most of my crocks are from both of my grandmother’s homes. I also decided to keep out several different varieties of greenery, along with my candles. I added flocked greenery and lambs ear to my grapevine wreath that is hanging on my antique door. The door was found on facebook marketplace for $5 and originally painted brown. I stripped all the paint with Citristrip and was left with an antique milk paint base. I originally had the door in our master bedroom in the corner, but with January here, I was ready to start rearranging!
For the mantel, I wanted to leave my mirror and a couple different types of garland, along with a couple flocked trees. The mirror was purchased for $1 at a rummage sale and you can see how I transformed it, Here . I made all of my pillows from canvas drop cloths. I plan to have a blog out on how to make them, this month. My vintage ski “wreath” is another afternoon diy! Fun and budget friendly! Our family pup wanted to get cozy for this picture!
Another view of our living room, if you just want to keep it simple, just add greenery, flocked trees and throw pillows. I often find myself craving simplicity this time of year as well.
Thank you for joining us for our January Challenge! I hope you take the time to visit the other ladies and see how they have made their home feel cozy for winter!

Beautiful and soooo cozy. I want to come for coco and marshmallows. Your pup puts my two to shame. They won’t pose for my posts anymore. They stroll in unexpectedly.
Get my coco ready😉
Cindy! I would love to have you over! Our pup is usually pretty good about photos. She just loves being near us!
Shae every inch of your home is so beautiful. I love all the cozy winter vibes you got going on. Love your fireplace wall. Those skiies you made in the beginning of the season is so cute there on your hearth. I love it!
Terrie, thank you for all your kind words!! I always enjoying working on these projects with you!!

Thank you Dani!! You are so sweet!
Shae, the crocks are precious–even more so knowing the story behind them. I love your home. A touch of vintage, rustic, and modern. Simplicity sounds delightful.
You are so kind Kelli!! Thank you!
I love this whole room! I missed out on those flocked trees at target- i love them in your crocks. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much for your kind words! I lucked up at my local Target and saw them as they were putting them out! I grabbed several that day.
