One of the things I enjoy most about Colorado winters is “warmth”. Or maybe I should say the need to stay warm. I love that it gets truly cold in the winter (unlike Sister’s home in Florida, regardless of her claim that she wears “sweaters”). One of the best things my DH has done for me was to put in a fireplace and antique mantel.Not really this one, but you’ve seen mine on the Starry Night Stockings photo. I LOVE a fire going. It adds light and warmth and just says: HOME. The next best thing to a full fire is a candle. At this time of year they come out all over my house. Some are scented, some are not. Some are real, some are not. I even put one on my sofa. OK, so it is really the pillow wrap from the Seasons At My Window collection. Once I get the pillow wraps going I use them each month. Add a little warmth to your favorite chair with this one:
Then let the warmth continue into January with the “time sensitive” wrap of an hourglass:
As you can see, I plan to stay warm all winter long. I’m settling in for a long winter’s nap. With Pa in his kerchief and I in my cap. Oh, wait, that’s back to Christmas.
So, wherever you are, snuggle in next to your kind of fire with a little hand work and enjoy the winter.
