Happy New Year from the Brew Crew!

Hi friends,
Happy New Year! Do you have some fun plans for New Year's? If so, please share them with me so I can live vicariously through you! I remember the days when we used to go dancing or dress up in black tie digs or even have a really nice dinner out. Ah! Those where the days! These days my honey and I are happy campers snug as a bug in a rug in our bed by 9pm reading our books on our Kindle Fires. That is happiness! We're old, huh? Oh well. It had to happen. I can't even remember the last time I stayed up until midnight. It just doesn't happen over here at the Brew Crew. 6am comes way too early.

I wanted to share with you that today after church I finished taking down all of the Christmas decorations and my honey took all of the boxes, bags, and tree up to the attic. I was kind of depressed about having all of the decorations put away- honestly, the house looked so stark and plain. So I decided that this year, we would decorate for winter! Why not?

Mostly I reused snowflake decorations from our Christmas tree. Away went all of the red and green and welcome to the blue, white, and silver. See what you think:


I also added some super cheap scrapbook paper, snowflake stickers, and ribbons that I purchased at the Craft Store yesterday for less than ten dollars to add to our 'winter motif':

I also decided to add some of our silver pieces to our winter wonderland (I love mercury glass, don't you?):


Here is our family's new year's resolution (believe me, it's needed by all of us!):



I still couldn't bear to take down the Christmas cards:

I spiced up my home office with snowflake lights that my honey just got on sale (really for outside use for next year):


Here's the living room (I couldn't bear to take down the garland and it does have snowflakes on it so I think it qualifies as winter decorating):

Here's my honey cooking dinner for us:

Happy New Year friends!
May your year be filled with love, laughter, and light!


  1. I love your gorgeous home and your winter decorations are a beautiful idea!! Even your black and white curtains echo the snowflake theme. I'd love to do something like that here, but the temp is in the high 30s outside!
