I can hardly believe it!
It’s late December and there isn’t a flake on the ground here in Michigan.

After last year’s deep freeze and over abundance of snow… I’m loving it!
In fact, I think that I’ll celebrate with paper snowflakes this year. 🙂



After Christmas do you transition to winter home decor? 

If you’re trying to figure out how to transition your Christmas decor to winter, this just might be the perfect idea for you.   If you’d like to see some of my other ideas, check out a guide I wrote for eBay.  Click on the pin here.

    Your post gave me an idea. i keep a humane society angel gift tree at the local vet from mid-October thru Easter (noboby donates anything in spring and summer). I make angel ornaments and put homeless animal pics and needed supples on the ornaments. Your inspiration? – make snowflake ornaments and put a large flake on top of tree.

    So far,we’re having a wet but mild winter here in central Virginia. Yay. In case you want to know specifically where I am, I live in New Kent County, home of the first First Lady as well as First Lady Tyler. Yes, 2 First Ladies.

      Gail, I love the idea of a snowflake tree for winter. What a fun switch up after Christmas. 🙂
      Here’s to wishing those snowflakes bring in more needed supplies than ever.
