Spring Is Only A Few Months Away!

Spring is only a few months away? What?!! I know you are thinking that we haven't even celebrated Christmas or New Years yet. If you really think about it though, about 3-1/2 months from now, spring will have sprung.

If you know me, then you know that I usually shop off-season for just about everything. I always buy my children's clothes from the end-of-the-season sales the year before for both cold and warm-weather. The same goes with Christmas gifts. The best time to buy cashmere is towards the end of the winter, isn't it?

This year, we had to live through the last third of the summer without a functioning ceiling fan on the main floor. The motor seemed like it was burning out and we just never got around to having it looked at by an electrician. So, if you follow my off-season rule for shopping, now would be the perfect time to shop for a new ceiling fan.

I personally like Uplighting Ceiling Fans because they can serve two purposes. Since we live in a townhouse, having multi-tasking home furnishings is a plus. We just do not have the room for a ceiling fan and separate lighting.

Of course, if you know someone who is remodeling or planning on buying a new home, a ceiling fan would be a great gift for the holidays. If I were moving into a new home, I would want a ceiling fan for every room including one or two outdoor ceiling fans for the 3-season porch. A girl can dream can't she? A nautical ceiling fan would be a great gift for my mother-in-law for her house on the Cape. I'll have to remember that idea for next year.
