Today, the party returns from Christmas break! It’s Tuesday Turn About #81 Winter Tidbits.
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #81 Winter Tidbits
If you missed our last party, you can plan for this Christmas with some tablescape ideas from 2020! 😉
Welcome back y’all, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Let’s ask the question that EVERYONE seems to be asking… Are your Christmas decorations down yet, or are you enjoying them for as long as possible?
Me? I’m half up and half down… but most of my ‘up’ is winter/Christmas.
It’s pretty cold here in So Cal, so I’m thinkin’ it’s cold wherever you are, too! Winter has begun!
So, this week, I’m featuring some winter tidbits. Three features of a bit of this-and-that for your winter season. And remember…
But, first… it’s been a few hot minutes since we had some tips, so here you go!
Weekly Household Tip
Keeping your seasonal decor in color-coded containers is a great way to organize your storage area. You know… keep your Christmas decor in red lidded/handled containers, spring decor in purple or teal, fall in a gray or neutral color, etc. And, it looks pretty, too!
Weekly Blogging Tip
Here’s a quick and surprising Pinterest tip. Try pinning a regular photo to Pinterest and see what happens. Even pin a tutorial step collage, like this one.
For some reason, it seems that once in a while Pinterest likes a pin that ‘bends the rules’. You just never know what might make our ‘dear’ Pinterest happy. And it never hurts to do some testing to see what happens!
Though not a requirement at all, we would love it if you would subscribe and/or follow your hostesses on one or more of our social medias:

This Week’s Features:
Aren’t these adorable? And tasty looking? Give me a good gingerbread recipe and I’m a happy gal. Make them into cute little cottages and I feature them on Tuesday Turn About! LOL! The powder sugar roofs look just like a fresh winter snow! Check out the recipe and find the baking pan from Janet at JRL Interiors.
Red Isn’t Just for Christmas
Marie from Interior Frugalista is showing us how to make these gorgeous lanterns with scraps of wood! And the candle alternative is genius! Paint yours in the same “winter” red, or switch it out for black or any color you like. And you can decorate the top for the season, too!
Thrifting in the Winter Snow… It’s a Thing!
Who woulda’ thunk? Not this So-Cal-Gal! But Ann from Dabbling and Decorating is showing us just how she goes about thrifting in the Vermont winter snow! And, she shares some of her gorgeous photos with us, too!
