Winter Blues with a Few Red Hearts in the Powder Room.....

 

 

 

 

 

  Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!

 
I am so happy you decided to stop by!!
 
 I want to mention that you can click on each picture if you care to enlarge it...... 
 
Today, I will be sharing how I changed out Christmas in the Powder Room for a few Valentine's decorations, keeping most of the Winter decorations out..... 
 
 But first, Thanks to Lisa, over at Lisa's Everyday Life, Kris and Larry, over at Kris and Larry.com, and Michelle, over at Moms are Frugal, the "Family" hosting Team, for choosing my post, December's Word of the Month: BLESSED, as one of their feature's from December's month long You're the Star Blog hop!!!!
 

Thanks so much!!!
 
Please stop by and link up to this great party!! 
 
I have been busy packing away Christmas downstairs and re-decorating the downstairs for Winter and Valentine's for the past 2 1/2 weeks now....
 
I changed over the outside of the house to Winter decorations.....
 
 
 
 

 

Click HERE if you missed that post....

And I shared how I decorated the Den as a Winter Wonderland
 

 

 

 

 

 

And that "It Takes a Village or Two" in the Winter Wonderland.....

 

 

 

 

 

In my previous post, I shared what my Theme for the Year is....

MINDFULNESS

And soon I will be doing a post about what Goals I have for this year.....

 I finally finished packing Christmas away in the Living Room and today will start to re-decorate it thus completing the entire downstairs....
 
It usually takes me over 3 weeks to do the downstairs so I am glad to have been able to do it a little quicker this year....
 
In February, I will start the upstairs.....
 
There is no hurry to take down Christmas upstairs since I will then be returning it to "normal"

The Powder Room was the first room that I changed over after Christmas because there truly was not much to do in that room since I decorate it with Snow Buddies for Christmas......

I changed out the Christmas wreath on the door for a Valentine's wreath that I made.....


I hung a Valentine's slate in the center.....


And I left the skates that I bought in Big Lot's this past season out, hanging them from this wreath.....

I took down the Winter evergreen swag that hung above the door, moved it out to the Den and hung another wreath that I made in it's place....

In the corner by the sink.......


A silver heart ornament hanging from the shelf.....

Switched out a blue bottle brush tree for a red one.....


Left the Snow Buddies on top of the medicine cabinet......



Kept out the Christmas cards that I put in frames.....

Took down Christmas ornaments that hung on the shelf unit and added skate ones....

 Again, changed out a blue bottle brush tree for a red one.....

 

 

  I did move some Snow Buddies around on the bottom shelf of this wall unit....

 

 I have a few sets of towels that I change weekly.....

Snow Man ones....

 

Plain gray with a white snow flake one......

 

 And these Tree ones that Joe bought in the beginning for the Season in Big Lot's.....

 

 I moved one of a set of 3 battery operated silver mercury glass trees to the top of the commode.....

 

 I removed all Christmas ornaments from the Tree.....

 

And replaced them with red heart ornaments.....

 

 And some silver heart ornaments too.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Removed a few Santa's on this shelf and replaced them with a heart box.....

 On this small shelf, I added a vase with red roses and a bow made from heart ribbon......

 

 And one of my Valentine's Snow Buddies......

 

" The Queen of Everything"

 

 Replaced pine cones and Christmas ornaments with a red rose and a silver heart......

 

 

The top of this wall unit stayed the same.....

 
 
But I re-decorated this shelf with Valentine's Snow Buddies and a silver mercury glass heart.....
 
  
 

 
 
 
It is hard to get a good picture of what this room looks like in the evening all lit up but here it is......
 

 Sorry but it actually does look pretty cool.....

The Powder Room will now stay this way until the end of February.....

I keep out my Valentine's decorations for almost the entire month of February as it is American Heart Month.....

With a few very small changes, this room was easily changed over to Winter with a touch of Valentine's......

Next up, I will be sharing Winter decorations, also with a touch of Valentine's, in the Kitchen.....




So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!

Stay safe, healthy and most of all, HAPPY!!

  2. There was indeed a lot to look at, each photo a feast for the eyes. I too was impressed with the wreath and also the towels that matched and brought everything together. My goodness, you think of everything.

  5. Christmas seemed to fly by. I like the blue accents and snowmen in here. The Winter Welcome sign is so pretty. I also like your word of the year. Great choice.

  8. You are such a great decorator. I finally took down my Christmas Village with help from grandchildren home from school on MLK day. I still have my Christmas artwork up. The regular pictures on my wall are in really heavy archival frames and I think I am going to have to have my husband help with the project. My stinky broken arm is the gift that keeps giving. Thanks for stopping by!
