Simple Winter Kitchen Vignette

There's something about January that calls to my sense of simplicity.

Well, actually I have felt the desire to simplify before January.
I was just getting tired of the excess stuff that clogs up my life. 
And I wasn't the only one in our family feeling that way.
Our adult children wanted more time as a family and less gifts.
and our décor was slimmed down from other years but was still plenty.
It allowed us to actually enjoy and appreciate what we had out -
the decorations that had memories and meaning.

2014 has had a slow start but the theme for us this year is simplicity.
Do you have a theme or focus for the upcoming year?
  ~Finding the amazing in the simple~
Thanks so much for stopping by!
