I do get a little sad when I have to put the decorations away because we love Christmas so much (especially this year), and our house looks so bare now that everything is gone. We have no day to day decorations. We moved in during the beginning of October, so the Halloween decorations went up right away. Naturally, the Christmas stuff came out in November, so we've never actually had non-holiday themed stuff. Luckily, I had some things from our old place and there is Pinterest for everything else so I'm slowly managing to put together some design ideas. I'm trying to see the emptiness as a clean slate for new things rather than a sad reminder that the holidays are over.

I have three jars I'm using on top of a bookcase (for now) and they're not all done, but I like the possibility of the direction they're taking.
The best part is they were all $20 or less at Home Goods. And please excuse the key canvas in the background. It's an idea I'm still toying with and I'm not sure how I feel about it.
Some other stuff I've put out are some more balls made of natural materials I picked up, a few neutral candles, and some awesome mercury glass ornaments that I got for Christmas. (I couldn't put everything away. Too depressing.)
The house still looks pretty empty but I keep pulling ideas from the web so that we can have a lovely, cozy place to live and plan a wedding in.
Can you tell I'm excited?!
I'll keep you posted of the rest of my projects I'm planning on doing.
