Since I live in a very snowy region of the country I can do one of two things….
Embrace the snow and cold or bury my head in the snow and pretend it doesn’t exist.
The former works much better than the later…believe me.
For me…pine cones and snowflakes are nature’s decor for winter.
I know snow makes sense….but pine cones? I have no idea why I think this. Maybe it’s just an excuse to decorate with pine cones. And faux snowflakes. I like those much better than the kind that melt. Though I must say, looking out the window and seeing the landscape with a fresh blanket of snow is pretty special. Last winter I had fun using both pine cones and snowflakes in my decor.

Catch up on all that’s Extraordinary…
this week at An Extraordinary Day!
Here’s a rundown of this week’s posts:
On a Personal Note:
You all are the sweetest kindest most encouraging people I have ever ‘met.’ Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughtful remarks. It really means the world to me. [hugs] I want to apologize for being behind on replying to your comments. I have read every one…but I have not had time to respond. I’m working on it….so please be patient with me. There’s nothing like a holiday party or two to three to help a gal get behind. [wink]
Today was a beautiful almost perfectly clear sky day. The kind that starts with temps in the double digits….below zero. Brrrr! Did I say it was beautiful? It was the kind of day where you go outside to shoot a few pictures and go back inside almost immediately because your fingers are frozen. Cameras and gloves to do not make a happy association, do they? Anyway…I got a few frozen shots which might make an appearance soon.
I’ve been playing with birch again and there’s a table setting and centerpiece involved. And some fun and easy tutorials. And I made snowflakes…the kind that look good. Not the kind where you want your friends to think your kids made them. Would you like to know how to make them too? And then there’s Valentine’s Day! Any romantics in the house? My mind has been spinning with fun ideas to share with you. But, first…the Christmas decor needs to come down.
How about you?
- Is your Christmas put away already?
- Does it feel like Christmas happened months ago?
Wishing you an Extraordinary weekend!
