As many people know, my favorite humorous holiday character is the snowman, so I often add snowman-related Christmas things to my collection. I often purchase things from the website Dresslily.com. That is where I found a sweatshirt, an apron, a pillowcase and a shower curtain all with the same motif.
Holiday pillows are an easy way of making your home a little more festive. I had been thinking about purchasing a couple of Christmas pillows from a website recently, but one day, I stumbled across a holiday pillow sale in Walmart. They were two for $5.50 – a good price – so I bought two packs.
