Cottage Style LInky Party #25

Since Christmas 

I have taken down all the holiday decorations and stored them,

cleaned, straightened, organized and thrown away a bunch of junk.

And not good junk either.

Yep, this has taken me 7 days to accomplish.

But this hard work has left me with a clean, neat, tidy, organized  home.

One in which I can get work done in, 

one I can feel a bit more creative in,

one I will try to keep neat and tidy.

So instead of leaving my berry basket empty for the next six months...

...I filled it with pine cones and bark covered candles.

Because this is what winter feels like in a clean, neat tidy home...

...warm and cozy!

Welcome to the 25th 

Cottage Style Linky Party!

I just love this lavender wreath from Kathy, The Chicken Chick!

Check out her website for a complete tutorial and make your own lovely wreath...

I know I'll be making one!

I just adore this clever packaging from Fishtail Cottage!

Inside each of these tiny canning jars is her recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse!


Check out her blog for the recipe and to see these clever canning jars up close.

How cute is this bunny, Sid Rabbit, dressed up in his adorable sweater and scarf!

  1. Thank you for the feature! I thought you, of all people, would appreciate the lavender wreath. ♥

  2. I love your arrangement and your choices as well. Happy New Year.

  3. I love your berry basket all decked out for Winter. Hubby and I have been on a cleaning frenzy. We are going to finish our basement and had to empty it out first. Quite a job for a collector of junk (I mean treasures) lol! Have done a bit upstairs also. Doesn't the New Year do that to you? Make everything clean and fresh. Love the wreath and Tracies jars are so cute. The little bunny looks awfully cuddly. Thanks for hosting and hope your New Year is off to a bang!

  4. I just found your blog it's beautiful! I'm a new follower ;) I'll join the party too!


Thank you!
