How are you weathering winter? Life is too short to wish any months away - but this time of year when the holiday trimmings have been packed up, and days run cold and gray, we could all use a little help brightening things up, don't you think?
The first line of defense against the dark and dreary: To paraphrase Mr. Monet, I must have flowers, always... but especially in January.
Grocery store tulips do the trick. Pink in the bath, on my nightstand, and desk.
Always red in the kitchen.
And this time of year almost every container in the house gets pressed into service to hold the promise of spring. Jonquils and hyacinths take the spots recently vacated by garlands and Christmas-y greens.
These were planted this morning and will fill the house with the scent of sunnier days. I feel warmer already!
What's your favorite way to brighten winter days?
Happy Monday, everyone! XOXO
