Warmest winter wishes! Weeks of preparation and the holidays have come and gone leaving a trail of scotch tape covered wrapping paper, empty cookie trays and dry ground. Where is the white Christmas we've been dreaming about? Maybe next year? Soon the weather and the season will ally, bringing us immaculate, brilliant, shimmering, twinkling, glistening snow! Check out some winter inspirations!
