How does one decorate for this time of year? My house looks absolutely spartan with the Christmas stuff gone. But I don't want to put out spring-y things yet. What to do?
I suppose in other climates you could have snowflakes and that sort of thing. But that feels silly here; it was 70 degrees today. I've got pine cones out, but that's just not cutting it. They've been out since October, and they're not exactly bursting with color.
I'm feeling like purple could work; it sort of bridges that gap between winter and spring. And birds maybe? Something with birds?
So help. What feels right for January? It must be distinctly non-Christmas-y, but not daffodils and tulips yet. And no snowmen.
If anyone suggests putting out pink hearts for Valentines Day I will have to shoot you.
Update: this is worth considering.
