It's been so cold here in the Chicago that I just had to start dreaming about ....
I decorated the mantle using some of my Russian wooden nesting dolls, or shall we say "Nesting Bunnies and Spring Vegetables." Each wooden figure separates, top from bottom, to reveal a smaller figure of the same sort inside, which has another figure inside of it, and so on. The number of nested figures is traditionally not less than five, but can be more than five.
So let's all start thinking about warmer weather and Spring.
