Nature Inspired Winter Decor (re-post from 2012)

It is strange to look back on posts from last year at this time. I miss living in our old house. Connecticut winters are so long – I don’t necessarily miss that. Here in Virginia – it has been around 60 degrees. We even put mulch down in our flower beds yesterday and I have been wearing flip flops. A whole different story than what I was doing last January. I wanted to share my “Nature Inspired Winter Decor” post again….because I am a little bit homesick.
January 2012 
It’s been so freezing.  It makes me think of all the little critters that live outside.
I love to invite birds into our yard in the winter.
So to remind myself to not neglect nature – I made this sign.
All the Christmas decor is gone but we have a long winter ahead of us.
Here’s how I changed the house up for the occasion.
(keeping our little birdies in mind)

The pine cones and bird houses were on my Christmas tree.
The old chicken coop door always makes it’s way back to the mantel.
(I love this junk find)

My friend, Amy, gave this frame to me for Christmas.
Here’s our front room for listening to music…
I made a burlap knot cloth for the console – inspired by my friend Laura.
(I don’t like to dust)
You have to see the other gifts Amy gave me….
Vintage Style Number Hooks.
 I wanted some hooks in the foyer for little friends that come to play.
Now they have a cute place to put their coats besides my floor.

I am going to get some bird seed for the little birds here in the South this weekend. I brought all my cute feeders with me.
