Things about the House of 42 Doors in the Winter

(c) 2008 Ms. Huis Herself at musenmutter.blogspot.com

  • We get really pretty frost designs in some of the windows, which can be used to make a pretty header.
  • The compost container in the back hallway doesn't smell...
  • ...especially now that it's frozen.
  • Who needs frosted glass privacy windows when we've got... glass windows that are frosted over, providing privacy.
  • Custom-made draft stoppers (by my mom!) provide protection from icy toe-level winds, plus they coordinate with the custom-made bench cushions!
  • Radiators are awesome and cozy and lovely to stand right next to.
  • It looks pretty.

Ah yes the joys of an old house! :) My mom once had a piece of crystal shatter in the buffet because it got so cold in there. (the buffet is on an outside wall).
Stay warm!

I'm thinking of making draft stoppers for Pumpkinpie's door to the addition and maybe her window, though the heavy velvet curtain I put up the other ngiht seems to help with that. Must go buy one for the Bun's room. Our windwos have frost patterns in our room, too, which are prtty. Too bad they are above the change table for now.
