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!

This Week’s Features:

Gingerbread Cottages

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!

  • If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
  • DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
  • Please make sure that your images are in a jpeg or png format. If we can’t save your image, we may not be able to feature you. So sad!
