Friday Favorites–Staying Warm

I always feel like winter kinda gets the short end of the stick when it comes to seasons.  Autumn gets a lot of the cold weather credit in November, then when winter actually gets its day in December, no one notices because it’s almost Christmas.  Once the holidays are over, all anyone can think about is when spring will arrive.  Well, Winter, this one is for you.

Sometimes it’s not about going out into the cold, but keeping it outside.  This Door Draft Blocker from Patchwork Posse adds a little color to the room and keeps those breezes out.

Maybe you ventured out without sufficient coverage and now you’re trying to warm back up.  Try this Cherry Pit Pillow from Nifty Thrifty Things.  I’ll bet it smells fantastic when it’s heating.

I have this fun little thing called Raynaud’s Phenomenon.  Sounds exciting, huh?  It just means my fingers turn white, hard and lose blood flow if they get cold and they hurt like mad when they warm up.  It’s a nuisance.  Needless to say, I try really hard not to let that happen.  I think these Pocket Warmers from Fellow Fellow would be perfect for me.
