    Yea, I’ve got ‘em — those mid-winter blues, but it’s only early January and I don’t think Jack Frost will be taking a break anytime soon. So instead of wishing for warm sandy beaches and wearing flip flops with newly painted toes, I’ve decided to try to embrace the wonderful things winter has to offer; because don’t you know that come July 4 I’ll be cursing the sun and searching for shade.

    Saturday Sparks – Christmas Window Boxes

    As we change gears from all things fall into holly and ives, I wanted to share a few ideas for decorating window boxes in the spirit of the season.
