Could Winter be in Retreat

It has been a wild few weeks with the weather, I mean just look at Texas. The snow has been mind boggling. Maryland received its fair share of Arctic temperatures and ice showers, with a little snow thrown in for good measure. It was cozy in the house…and then it was too cozy in the house. We all needed to go back to work/school. It also made me really really anxious to start some planned renovations that were put on the back burner because of Covid delays. I love this 100 year old house. It has great bones. It’s just time to put those great bones to work.

This week left me wondering if spring could be just around the corner. The balmy 40 degree weather, birds attempting to build a nest in the door wreath, daffodils poking out of the earth seem to speak of this change and I must admit I’m ready for it. I always miss the beauty of a snow day mid week, but I think I’m done for the year…at least until next December! Enjoy some decor touches that seem to bridge winter into spring for me. No bunnies or heavy floral touches yet.

Pears remind me of late winter…not sure why.
Crisp blue and pine cones add a simple touch
Antique bottles and Asian touches add color and sparkle to a grey afternoon.
The more pears the better
Still a little time for winter cozy.

  1. I love snowy weather! After living my first 40 years in ‘no-snow’ Australia, I love living in a country that has snow and ice in winter (first it was Russia, now I’m in Bulgaria). But, I’m ready for spring, too, and can’t wait for the warm evenings to begin.


  2. I”m ready for spring, too! We didn’t get much snow here in Utah where I live so we’ll probably be in a drought during the summer. But I’m glad the cold will soon be gone!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at our Party in Your PJs link party.


  3. I am ready for spring too but know we probably have at least a few more snow flurries and storms before spring is here to stay.


  4. Winter is in retreat, and the days are sunnier and brighter longer. I also associate pears with winter, maybe because of the partridge in a pear tree? I hope the longer days give you energy to accomplish your goals.


  5. Lovely decor. Happy Women’s day.
    Thank you for sharing with us at Meraki Link Party.
    Have a wonderful week.
    Much love
