Now that the holidays are over, the magic of winter is gone for me. I never know what to do with myself come January as I just wait for the sun to come back and for flowers and birds. You could call me a winter grinch. So, I’m skipping right ahead to spring this week, maybe we can fake it until the winter is over.
These colorful butterflies are a great way to add some spring cheer to a dreary winter home. They can brighten up your winter outfits as a hair accessory or brooch, or can help you work away some of the time you’re stuck inside.

Hygee (pronounced “hoo-gah”) is a Danish concept that has to do with making your home a cozy and pleasant place to be through the cold of winter.

This means surrounding yourself with things that make you feel cozy and warm like hot tea, pillows, candles, and family. Here are some DIY ways to bring hygee into your home.
