Now is a good time to winter up the house. Put the seashells away, and pull out the heavy fur throws. Put the summery sofa pillows to rest, and drag out the silk embroidery. I always love to change seasons within the household. It gives me a fresh outlook for the coming season. Winter is almost here, and we need to turn on the lights and put up the heat. Until it gets uber cold, I love a fire in the fireplace. After January, it seems to make the house colder. I never know what to do with my houseplants. I do love them so for most of the year, but at Holiday time they seem to get shunted to a corner, because their tender green leaves never look right with evergreens. Welcome winter!!
