As you may remember I decorate my home heavily for the holidays and leave everything up until after New Year. After removing three Christmas trees, a loaded mantel, an entry table filled with Santas, hanging mistletoe, Christmas tea pots and towels, you can bet the house feels a little empty. Clean – but empty.
I’ve devised a little trick to wean myself off holiday decorating so I don’t have to go “cold turkey”. I realized my Christmas decorations included a number of snowman theme items. Since there’s snow on the ground in January where I live, it makes perfect sense to warm up the house a little with snowmen. I plan to have them keep me company until I can decorate with the reds and whites of Valentine’s Day.
