Winter is in full force here in Idaho. We had an unusually warm November and December but Old Man Winter made his way and it is cold! Today's high is 18...if you ask me, if the temperature is under freezing, it doesn't matter what the actual number is! I decided to make some Winter Survival Kits for some special friends. A quick trip to the Dollar Store and a few other stores and I was set.
I picked up this fun blue box that goes with my theme. To it, I added warm socks, gloves, lotion, antibacterial gel and lip balm. All things that will help you stay warm and keep your skin hydrated in this freezing cold weather. This is such a fun gift to give someone in the month of January when there isn't too much exciting stuff going on.
My sweet friend Jenny of Jenny's Heart and I had a little Christmas swap of our own. We decided to do homemade treats and ornaments. Here is what Jenny sent me. I love the little snowmen and all the fun things she included. What's missing is the delicious treats and the holiday velvet cake mix. Cody always likes to see what I get and then take whatever he likes! Thanks Jenny...I always love what you send and can't wait to swap with you again!
My French loving friend Donna of My Shabby Chateau sent me these sweet little Angel tags. I just love these! They have so many of my favorite things--angels, sheet music, French and glitter! Thank you so much Donna, it was such a sweet surprise to receive these from you!
I also wanted to share my simple winter mantle. I love silver, white and aqua and my mantle looks gorgeous in these colors. I will leave this up until the end of the month.
I can't believe that 2015 is already here...time definitely flies when you are having fun. Happy New Year everyone!
