A winter vignette inspired by both of my grandma’s, farmhouse decorating using some of my very favorite keepsakes. Every time I reach to decorate my home I want to include the old oil lamp I found in the basement. Cleaned up, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was! So, when it was time to put another vignette together with the Farmhouse Hens, I just had to include it like I did last time with my Fall Vignette!

As many of you already know I just went through a divorce and have been keeping myself busy with different projects around my home. The current one I’m working on is converting my office into my guest bedroom and library! In said guest bedroom (where I decided to put up my little winter vignette) is the other half of my grandpa’s old ladder that I’m using in my closet as a shoe rack. It seemed only right to include it here as a blanket rack! All three of the blankets I inherited from my mom and each one of them holds a good memory for me.

All of my decorating ends up focusing on objects that have meaning for me. I own very few things in my home that aren’t inherited or keepsakes and I think its important for the objects we keep to be more important to us then just things we need to dust. Seeing pictures of this little collection warms my heart and makes me smile!

My herb drying rack converts to my flower drying rack in the late fall every year because, no matter how many of them I have, I just can’t help but keep a few hydrangeas off of my grandma’s bush every year! If you look at any project on this blog about my home almost every single one of them has at least one bouquet in one of their pictures lol

My grumpy little santa my aunt handed me the last time I had the opportunity to go and hang out with her and my uncle. She said my dad had purchased the little dude probably before I was born and it should be with me. The santa is an original from a well known local carver in my area and he will most likely be with me the rest of my life. His expression is very much so how I feel about winter!

The blankets are so gorgeous. I love all of them. Your guest bedroom is going to be fantastic I am sure. Dried hydrangeas always make me think of my grandmother. She always had them in vases around her house.

I laughed when I saw the Grumpy Santa, but those blankets of course are my fav.

This is my favorite way to decorate!..using old inherited pieces. I have two oil lamps in the same style as yours. When I was a child my mother kept them high up on top of the china cabinet & none of us were allowed to touch them. She said she used them to do homework when she was a little girl during the depression (my mother was older when I was born & I’m reaching old!). So I use those lamps often. Though they are usually in a vignette on the same china cabinet that my mother used. I’m too… Read more »

Sorry to hear about the divorce. Glad you’re keeping yourself busy. And I love that you’re decorating with items that have meaning. That’s the best kind of decorating!

Hi Tarah, it’s all looking so cosy and personal with your inherited keepsakes. A great way to keep busy. Thanks for sharing with us at the Blogger’s Pit Stop.

Decorating with keepsakes is far more interesting than finding the usual, cookie-cutter decor. I love that oil lamp! It adds so much beauty and interest in your winter vignette 🙂
