    Your post is a jewel Anna, and with each snowflake manmade or artfully invented they are a reminder of the sparkle of winter. I like the wall backdrop which could be changed from season to season, making anyplace in a home or an apartment a very new place to dine. Now lets add the candles–Season's Greetings

    I scrolled a little and found an article on building a cold frame. This is probably what I would put outside if I won the HGTV Stowe Vermont Home. Always having fresh tomatoes peppers, some herbs for salad, and fresh salad greens will go a long way if they have a protective covering toward winter, and give them a jump start for spring.

    There are some great ideas here – copy & re-create to do with kids…just on an easier scale. Fun for the holidays. I might be able to come up with some ideas for Easter from these "hints" :)
