Fall finally arrived in Dallas and within 2-3 days, Winter blew in right after it. Brrrr... Cold weather always has me craving soup and wearing comfy bundled clothes made of various knits and cashmere. Though I am a far cry from Martha Stewart, Winter inspires me to bake and crochet. I mean, that's what people do when it's 20 degrees outside and the wind blows so hard that it cuts right through you... right? And then just when I get to thinkin' I can actually start doing some of these wintery traditions, a strong south wind blows in and it's 60 degrees again. Texas. You've gotta love it.
One of the ways I mock up a wintery scene in our home is via the fireplace. It isn't a working fireplace right now so we have loads of candles inside of it. It doesn't put off much heat, but it warms my soul. What evokes winter in your home?
