Winter arrived last night. After weeks of rain, the temperature
suddenly dropped 15 degrees and everything froze over.
My man couldn't get into his car this morning because of the ice
and had to ask the neighbors for a ride to work,
and neither one of us has winter tires on our cars.
The kitties have only been outside for a few minutes today
and are now balled up by the heater and in my knitwear, respectively.
I know it's early, but the change in weather got me in the Yule mood
so I pulled out the electrical candlesticks and stars for the windows.
Traditionally they would all come up on Sunday anyway.
I have also been working on another tree, made with bead string
and rhinestones salvaged from one of my mom's old blouses.
Every year I use less Santa reds and more trees in my décor.
My plan is to (sometime in the future) have a long side table
completely covered in trees - a proper winter wonderland.
I saw this fabulous little purple tree at a store called Rusta
and I knew I had to have it. The store also has some cheap
Yule hand soaps, all kind of weird either in scent or in color...
I know all of it is really kitschy but I couldn't help myself :)
Have you started decorating yet?
