One way to offset the darkness of winter days is to provide splashes of color inside one's home.
It's honestly not hard to do.
In a beautiful glass punch bowl, one of my favorite thrift store finds, I placed a round rose-covered wreath.
Into its ample middle went a fat red candle. If memory serves me well, I paid $1 for it at a church yard sale.
Some heart-shaped lights, lighted via battery, bought for $3 at Target, around Valentine's Day, have been placed on top of the rose wreath.
They look so pretty twisted among of the blooms. The battery pack is carefully hidden underneath.
Nearby there is a plate of tangerines. They are unique in that branches and stems remained!
I took most of them off but left one for you to see.
HOW DO YOU GET THROUGH THE LAST PART OF WINTER?
