Here are some photos of the "cleaner" look without the holiday clutter.
I'm keeping the lanterns out for now since they work great for winter decor. I placed them on the sofa table, and added a birch log candle to the large one with some silver mesh ribbon, and a smaller candle in the smallest lantern. Two decorating books, a magnolia stem (from years ago) finish out the vignette.
The hall tree got a new display.
I don't know what the tall piece on the top is called, but it is a recent purchase, and I love the way it looks with the other items. It reminds me of a cathedral window. I placed pine cones and magnolia seed pods in a Good Will dish I found a while back.

This table showcases thrifting finds, mostly Good Will.
Simplistic centerpiece for breakfast table, Good Will tea pot and flowers.
Simplicity for the pie safe too. Say hello to my sweet "Daisy". My mother always had a milk cow, and most of them were named Daisy, so that's what I named mine. :)
The jelly cupboard holds my pitcher collection, and a few vintage plates.
The mantle and builtin went back to their pre-Christmas look.
I like seeing some open space between items!! Have you removed your Christmas decor?
