Time to change it up

 I have a few things that are 'winter' rather than just Christmas that left out when I put the Christmas away.
 Even though it is still winter

It's time to put them away

 and put out Valentine's.

 That is my goal for this week.

 We don't have a lot of snow here - we did have some flurries the other day.

If it ever sticks, there is usually more ice than snow and things come to a complete standstill since no one knows how to drive in that kind of weather, myself included.

If you are in one of those places where it is bitter cold right now, I hope you are staying inside and keeping warm!

See you soon!

Happy New Year!

Better late than never, huh?

It took awhile but all the Christmas decor is put away. I have a few things that are winter but not Christmas that I left out - I will try to get those posted soon. They may overlap the Valentine stuff since I don't have a lot of either.

I found one more new ornament on my tree when I was taking it down.

I picked this up when I visited Biltmore last May. I would love to see it at Christmas sometime!

I finally finished my January piece and got it in the frame.

And I got started on February. Maybe I will get it finished before the end of the month!

It's January and my geranium is still blooming - the one on the other side of the porch bit the dust way back in the summer but this one just keeps on going.

The hydrangeas have buds all over them.
I'm sure they will all be toast after this weekend - temps are supposed to hit low 20s - coldest temps so far this winter.

Hope everyone is having  a great 2019 so far!
