Winter is finally here. According to the weather winter is everywhere - but it really hit Arkansas this week. Tonight it will be 2 degrees. TWO DEGREES. We don't see weather that cold very often in these parts. It is supposed to be that way for a week or so at least.
Yesterday I went to the thrift store to buy a warm fuzzy scarf. Not because of the weather but to make this:
I had seen a wreath on Pinterest using a scarf, but they just wrapped it across the middle (like it was on your shoulders). I wanted to wrap the wreath around and around, so I found a very long one. I was pleased that not only was only 99¢, but it was just the perfect shades of blue to match my house and my winter decor.
I already had the little child's skates that I had thrifted last year and I already had the wooden snowflakes and the sparkly junk from 90% off at Target. All I had to do was assemble it. I had it all made and it still need something, so I found those perfectly colored pompoms that I had made stuffed in a drawer. I added a jingle bell to the center ( and ode to my roller skating days...) and it was done.
I like the pop of color on these cold Winter days.
I do a whole blue and white winter theme on the porch.
It's a work in process - as in I work on it when it isn't freezing. It might take me until Spring at this point.
You guys stay warm out there!
