HandmadeMN Fun Friday Finds ~ Winter Solstice

By Mollie

In one day, we will be upon the winter solstice.
The sun will reach its maximum elevation around noon, its greatest height for this time of year in the Northern hemisphere.
The amount of sunlight we observe has been gradually diminishing up to this point, with late sunrises and early sunsets. We experience cold days, often cloudy and gray, filled with a lot of WHITE.

Today's Fun Friday Finds aims to brighten up your shortest day of 2013 with bold colors and happy thoughts.

And remember, with the winter solstice comes great news - that we have reached the shortest day/longest night and we are over the hump. Moving on to more sunlight, earlier sunrises and later sunsets. And a lot more color!
