Brr Baby It’s Cold Outside!

I am fortunate to not live in the part of the country that is frozen and covered in snow. Here in sunny California we have been enjoying the mid 60’s! Still a banner reading “Brr” is perfect to help decorate for the last of the winter season.      I have decided that this year […]
