Winter Windows

FL Sister id tag

 

Winter windows look really different at my house than they do at my sister’s house. Look out her window and you will see windmills and snowflakes – maybe enough for a snowman; look out my windows and you will see palm trees and blooming azaleas. And the snowman at my house this year looked like this:

Our Olaf only shared his hat with very special people!

When our families gathered for the holidays one of us had Christmas fun like this …

I’m sure there is a sled somewhere close by.

and the other one had Christmas fun that looked like this …

If you have followed us for a while, you know that we have used designed those appliques so that they can be used on pillow wraps. Those seasonal patterns are available HERE.

Now we are in the process of taking those same motifs and transferring them to smaller post card projects:

a table mat, a guest towel and a tea cozy (here’s a sneak peak at this set).

And a sneak peak at Sister’s subway tile in her new kitchen!

They will be up on our store soon, available in a 3 postcard bundle. If you have enjoyed our fall post card bundle, available HERE, then this is a great way to expand your seasonal Windows collection.

Warm Winter Wishes

CO Sister id tagOne 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.fireNot 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.  candlewindow1600At 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:

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.

Spring Fever!!


CO Sister id tag

With the temperatures moving upward (around mid-50s) the last couple of days, I’m getting it BAD!  I know, I know, I know…it is only March 15th!  Here in Colorado nothing gets planted outside before Mother’s Day and that’s in May.  But I have hope because I saw some green tops pushing up through the ground.  If I didn’t know better I’d think they were daffodils.  Our daffodils usually have brown tips because they were frosted somewhere along the line.

So because I need to bring the fever back to reality, I think I’ll break into some bright, fresh fabric and start on a new pillow wrap for the couch instead of heading to the garden.  Check out the pattern I’ll use from the Seasons at My Window collection.  You’ll see why the three bold words in this blog relate to each other.

So if the seasons don’t change for you or don’t change fast enough here’s the answer to spring fever.  SPRING window Bedited(1)
