I don’t think winter gets its due. It gets all lumped in with Christmas, when really it’s only just getting started by the time the holidays are over. If we’re going to get freezing weather where I live it’s much more likely to happen in January than before. Dashing through the snow doesn’t involve reindeer or Santa. So, I’m here to give winter the moment in the spotlight that it deserves.
I don’t know if I’m brave enough to let anyone actually use this Indoor Snowball Fight from Sew Can Do inside the house, but it’s so cute and fun I think I could be won over.
You could certainly use this Reading and Knitting Pillow from Sew Happy Geek any time of the year, but am I the only one that gets more reading and hand-crafts done when it’s too cold to go outside?
Evenings find me under a blanket this time of year. If I had this Family Blanket from Rae Gun Ramblings I could let someone under there with me.
Has your family been struck down by The Bug yet? My husband and I were both knocked flat by it before Thanksgiving and we’re still waiting for the cough to completely disappear. I’m thinking these Homemade Vaporizing Shower Cubes from Smart School House would still be a good idea, even months later.
This Get Well Soon Tissue Box Cover from So Sew Easy would be a great gift to take to a sick friend. There’s a little pocket on the side to add some tea and cough drops.
I love soup in the winter. And I love pickles. I’m intrigued by this Dill Pickle Soup from Noble Pig. I’m going to have to make a small batch and try it out.
I feel about hot apple cider the way some people feel about coffee. I love the smell, but the taste – nope. However, this Apple Cider Hot Toddy from Cookie and Kate has me wanting to give it another chance.
When I was a kid one of my cousins got married in the winter and the girls had faux fur muffs instead of bouquets. I thought it was so pretty. Apparently it’s a trend that has returned and Etsy seller sewudesigns has many to choose from.
Nothing is worse than trying to keep warm in January with a bitter chill blowing under your door. Well, nothing except flattened Mickey. This Wonderful World Draft Stopper from caitlinsdad on Instructables definitely requires a good sense of humor.
One of my favorite things about winter is boots, but you can get tired of looking at the same pairs over and over all season. Dress them up with these DIY Faux Fur Boot Sweaters from The Renegade Seamstress on eHow.
