It's time to put the hats and hooters away, turn the calendar page and say, "hello" to 2016 and January, or as I refer to it, "the black hole of winter." In Wisconsin, January is typically bitter cold and often very snowy. Spring can feel a looonnngggg way off.
But, every season has it's positives, so, of course, I have some January faves to share.
Mmmm...the cozy warmth of a scented candle. I admit I tend to include candles in most of my monthly faves. What can I say? My name is Jane and I am a scent fanatic, lol. I love The Warm Glow Candle Company's Banana Nut Bread loaf candle. Yum~yum~yum.
As a school employee, I always feel like a kid again when we have a snow day off from school. I admit that when an expected storm fizzles out, and school is not called off as hoped, you are likely to hear me say, "aw, man!" Love a snow day. We don't get them every year, but when we do - woo hoo!!
Comfort food reigns during the cold month of January. Nothing like a tasty stew or soup simmering on the stove, waiting to be served up for supper.
A frosty evening feels a bit warmer when you cozy up under a stack of pretty quilts.
Winter also finds me looking at paint, buying paint and yes, painting! I am hoping to get a fresh coat on my master bath this month. I also am planning on painting several other spaces in 2016.
My favorite January fave? The clean slate, the fresh start, the blank page that a new year brings. So many possibilities...Source
Happy New Year my friends! I hope you will come back to check on what I am doing this year, how I am filling my blank page.
Thanks for stopping by,
