Saturday Sparks Link Party 355

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 355!

Starting off todays party with a smile maker and a tip.

Penguin air plant at Pieced Pastimes

I bought a pair of these sweet little penguins the other day - just couldn't resist!

The moment I saw them, I couldn't help but smile.

It truly is the little things!

As for the tip, check out the plant section at your local grocery store.

They change things up weekly and you never know what you will find.

Minimalist Christmas Touches for 2019

Our days of late have been quite busy. Decking the halls wasn't really a priority, but a few simple touches were in order.

 Vintage Rocking Horse by the Christmas Tree at Pieced Pastimes

Truth be told, busy or not I still would have kept things at a minimum.

In my mind, minimalist Christmas decor can be every bit as joyful as an over-the-top approach. It's just on a quieter scale.

Minimalist Christmas Mantel  by Pieced Pastimes

I started by giving some love to the mantel in the way of a pine forest.

Snow Capped Pines Painting by Pieced Pastimes

Snow capped trees are a familiar sight here in New Hampshire and I wanted to emulate their beauty in this picture I painted.

Minimalist Christmas Tree by Pieced Pastimes

As in nature, our tree is bare save for a strand of lights to give it a Christmas glow.

The tree theme continued onto our wall unit.

Objects are placed sparingly, but each and every piece is something that sings to me.

The living room pellet stove keeps us nice and warm, but my plants don't fare so well with the dry heat. Lucky for me, faux greenery has come a long way!

Another 'less is more' shelfie.

Minimalist Christmas Decor by Pieced Pastimes

I like to start with bare shelves and slowly add things until I am content with the overall arrangement.

Minimalist Christmas Decor by Pieced Pastimes

I always find myself removing things and in the end 'less' always feels better to me. Not to say this is right or wrong, it is just my own unique style.
