  1. Lora I just love how the paintings inspired your whole decorating scheme! It’s always awesome when that happens. I think this is my favorite of your winter posts with all the fun vintage treasures and all the green mixed in with winter blues. You have created some of the most creative winter vignettes with your finds. Truly beautiful!

      Thanks for your kind words, Amber! I’m really enjoying having the greens and blues front and center for winter:)

  2. I didn’t know you had a vintage treasure store?! I used to have a small booth called One For You/One For Me (for obvious reasons). When the store changed their motto (went to all clothing), I didn’t even mark it down or try to sell it all. I brought it home because I wanted everything! I would have gone broke if your store were close to me. Or maybe your store would have always been empty. 😉 Love your winter ideas and decor. It’s all so unique and fun. Your ideas were great too. I need to pull my fairy lights back out. But my fave idea was telling us to put the red with the pinks and Valentine stuff and the greens with the blues and wintry stuff. Genius!

      Fun to hear about your vintage booth, Cindy! I probably have more cool stuff now that I’m not selling at my store. Back then all the good stuff went there! I only brought home the duds that weren’t moving:( And I probably should do a post on how I divy everything up after Christmas, learned from many years of doing it at the store!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Sarah! I love finding something that inspires a whole vignette:)

      Thanks, Jen:) I do love that vintage deer; he had bells around his neck for Christmas:)

  8. I always love your blog posts Lora, and this is no exception! Those blues and greens are my very favorite colors, no matter what the season. Pinned several of your beautiful pictures.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You’re so sweet, Kelly. Cool blues and greens are so soothing after the loudness of Christmas decor.

  10. Always inspiring, wish snow would come our way.

    You share beautiful vintage touches always. Stay warm and enjoy.

      It’s actually snowing with beautiful flakes here, today! Thanks, always, Cindy!

    Yes, the mantel is a great place to start – and yours looks beautiful, Lora! I love how you played off the colors from the paint by numbers paintings. Those soft blues really speak to me this time of year. And all of your unique vintage pieces give your room such personality! Just gorgeous! Great to hop with you again!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Always enjoy hopping with you, too, Shelley! Yes, blues are so soothing this time of year:)

  12. Lora, I love your thought process in how you apply organizing your after Christmas home similarly to how you would do your booths. That was much the same as my sister & I did in turning the booths toward Valentine’s Day. At home, winter greens ruled. But it’s how you worked the blues into your decor that really appeal to me here. Lol, keeping the PBN artwork definitely worked in your favor, especially with the added local MN artist works. I love all of those! Your comment at the end, introducing Amber….I think it’s a tie. 😉 I love both y’all’s flair for styling vintage. You inspire me, and I really look forward to seeing your creative mind at work.You never disappoint, but always inspire!

      Thanks for your kind words, Rita:) I did feel a little bad when my younger son commented how much he liked them when he saw them; I had to admit I kept them for myself;) He can still enjoy looking a them!
