A Winter Evening in the Den, 2017


Even though we have had unseasonably warm temps. over the last few days, breaking high temp. records, Winter will be returning with more normal temps. for March!!
 Yes, those low temps. are 5 and 9 degrees predicted for the weekend!!

And some of our best snow storms have occurred in March!!!

Before I continue, I want to thank the hosts of You're the Star Linky Party for selecting my post, Just a Few New and Old Dishes, as one of the features part of Home Feature Week!!
Thanks to all the hosts and especially Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, who was part of the Home Team!!

And I also want to Thank Claire, over at Claire Justine, for featuring my post, Valentine Decor and Tree in the Living Room, from last week's Creative Mondays Party!!
Thanks so much, Claire!!

I wanted to share how the Den looks on a Winter evening with the Tree and the China Cupboard lit up.........

You may remember my Winter Tree in the Den.....

Here is what is looks like in the evening lit up.......
 I am going to let the photos do the talking......
The Winter Village under neath the Tree......
And I also wanted to show you the China Cupboard.........
You may remember that it looked like this.......
 Click HERE if you missed that post......

And how it looks in the evening.....
Truth be told, I am now in the process of changing these Winter decorations out for St. Patrick's Day decorations, creating a St. Patrick's Tree and decorating the China Cupboard as this is the only room that I decorate for St. Patrick's Day.....
