I recently noticed the blast of arctic air on our friends to the North and was thinking it would definitely be a good time for indoor kind of activities! Good time for interior renovations and decorating perhaps? I enjoyed reading a post not too long a go by by Chris Davis "Frog on a Pumpkin" where she and her husband re-decorated her work office with a very Gothic-ish look. I personally thought the old style wood valances and the small chandelier were a nice touch. Check out the Davis House Blog or Frog on a Pumpkin blog if you'd like, they have some photos posted.
