Q: When the hol­i­days are over and the last dec­o­ra­tions are put away, how do you spruce up your win­ter decor?

I adorn my year­round tree with snowflakes and cot­ton bat­ting. I also dec­o­rate the tree for hol­i­days like Valen­tine’s Day and St. Pa­trick’s Day.

A cou­ple of years ago I found some fab­ric with win­ter farm scenes on it: red barns, snow-cov­ered hills, pine trees, a frozen pond, pup­pies, rein­deer and adorable pink-cheeked kids sled­ding, skat­ing and mak­ing snow­men. I made a ta­ble run­ner with it, and it makes me smile as I re­mem­ber play­ing in the snow as a child. Now my grand­chil­dren and great-grand­chil­dren sled on our farm. That ta­ble run­ner brings up such nice mem­o­ries.

I bring out my snow­men and place them all over the house each Jan­u­ary. When I am tired of the snow, I pack them away for another year.
