So it's the start of another year. Can't say that I get all revved up about the new year. And the frigid temperatures have turned my daily walks into walking the treadmill--BORING! So I am suffering with a bad case of the blues. This time after Christmas really gets to me. It's at this time that I wish I still lived in New Orleans and had Mardi Gras to look forward to right around the corner from Christmas. Manitou Springs does have a Mardi Gras parade, but it is a sad imitation of the real deal. Parade takes about 10 minutes to get through town, no floats, just people getting dressed up acting goofy and no good music. It's so sad it is funny. But oh well, at least it is something.
One of my favorite blogs is The InspiredRoom. Yesterday's blog was about adding textural interest to your home during this spare time of year. She had some lovely photographs of ways to add texture to one's home so I'll share it with you here: http://theinspiredroom.net/2010/01/06winter-home-tip-warm-things-up-with-bits-of-texture. Enjoy.
