Warm Winter

     Winter frost embraces the windowpanes. The air is like a vicious creature; it snaps at our lips, leaving its traces on our every breath. The songbirds have been swept away with warmer winds. For as long as I can remember winter has always been a dreary and oppressive time for me. I suffer from seasonal affective disorder, and often times in the darker months I can be found basking beneath a special light. I cannot whole heatedly state that the light has helped much in the past, but I have found other comforts that take the bitter edge out of the winter woes. It is helpful to surround oneself with simple pleasures, whether it's a frothy cup of hot chocolate, or the soothing glow of candlelight. The projects I have included today exude both elegance and comfort while maintaining a holiday influence. I hope you find them helpful in your quest to keep warm this winter.

How cute is the cookie how mug garnish! And the bowl with the candles and silver decorations are a beautiful idea for a table centre. All very Chrismassy!

Hi Old Magnolia Tree! Thanks for stopping by!

I adore the mug cookie garnish also; it's very clever, and looks tasty. I think it would be a great treat for a party! I like things that have a holiday twist to them, but aren't too literal. I can see some of these projects being adapted for year-round use. :)
