The same thing goes for all the icy blue and white snowflake decorations and whatnots. When you put those out and it's 70-80 degrees outside and the a/c's running, all I can see is the blue ocean when I look at them. Not that we don't get some downright cold nights here and there. We even had snow once. It was my first real Christmas eve with Neil in 1989. It shut down the whole city. HA! But more times than not, we barely get to wear a long sleeve shirt for Christmas. So where does that leave people like me? I really don't want to go straight from the beauty and sparkle of Christmas to the water and sand theme. I want a little winter coziness too.
With that said, I broke down and went with a little bit of a snowy theme anyway. We have had a bit of a frosty cold spell here lately. So I created a faux chalk board, snowflakes and all. You'll never guess what I created this free project from.
So with a some colored chalk I already had, a bit of primitive free hand, I now have a tree, a deer (yes, that's supposed to be a deer), and snowflakes. I think that qualifies for winter decor, right!
Add some winter to your home by putting some simmering potpourri on the stove. It makes your house smell cozy. You can see my recipe HERE.
