Welcoming The Return Of the Light-
In honor of the llonger days now that the Solstice has passed, here are some winter "lights" photos I took, nothing fancy, since I used my cell phone camera :) Some are from the local Gardens a Glow at the local Idaho Botanical Garden. It's really grown over the years. I also got some shots in the neighborhood lat night. The one house was really covered in lights!-
Country Thrifting Finds!-
Wow, did I score today! I found this adorable 2' high country Christmas tree for my kitchen, for $2.00! Pre-decorated and the lights even work. In the box!
Kathleen from Roseprairiequilts is going to make me some chickens for it, so I'll adapt the tree.
Thanks Kat! Here's the Pattern for Chicken Ornaments for you crocheters out there.
A little Halloween cat for next year, and another gingerbread girl for my kitchen counter.
I also find a really nice purple fuzzy Coldwater Creek sweater, cool.
Snow's On The Way-
It was almost 50 this morning and really windy! Now the temp is really dropping, with 30 degrees colder tonight in the forecast. We may get some snow down here (in the valley) for the next 3-5 days!!! Maybe a white Christmas! I love snow!!! Sigh, wish I lived in Minnesota or Wisconsin, near the north woods areas. I'd have to buy studded tires and a snow blower, but hey, I'd do it! I tell Dave if he goes first, I'm so outta here! I'd move either into the mountains nearby, or do a major re-location to somewhere greener, with trees and snow....
