Sweet, Spicy and Soothing Winter Recipes

The Winter Solstice was yesterday.  The shortest day of the year in terms of daylight. Many I know prefer the long summer days with sun until late in the evening.  However, I think this dark shorty is Mother Nature’s cue for us all to slow down and prepare to spend some quality down time with the ones most important to us.

A few weeks ago a reader suggested we do a post about how to hang pictures.  This morning, with the sun streaming into our home, I took a few extra minutes to look at a few of our art pieces.  Sometimes art needs to be hung with precision.  Other times, the way pieces are grouped together is part of the “art” itself.  Today, let’s talk about all the ways to create a Gallery Wall.
