Yes, with snow we have record breaking low temperatures, icy roads, and the Seattle area coming practically to a standstill. That's what is going on in the world around me. I have been staying snuggled inside my abode trying to avoid outside at all costs. Even the puppies just want to nap all the time.
I think they are getting ready for Santa to surprise them with new toys and lots of bones.
Or it could just be boredom.......you just never know. But, I am inside this evening when I was suppose to be going to a special evening out. A dinner party for a friend's birthday at a fabulous resturant with the company of great people. Instead, Charlie and I cooked dinner, washed dishes, and I worked on some last minute Xmas projects. I'll let you know when cabin fever strikes.............because when it does I know I will be going nuts!!!!
Today a funny thing happened. My friend Carmen called me from Houston and asked me if I had opened the holiday gift she had sent me. When I told her that I hadn't..... she insisted that I open it immediately. And when I did, I was shocked!!!!! Shocked because we had sent each other the exact same gift.
Carmen and I started a tradition of buying each other a special holiday ornament when we lived in Green Bay, WI. Carmen and I had a favorite store that we were always buying home decor items from. We stalked them for their holiday decorations and ornaments which were to die for. So after we both left Green Bay we continued buying unique ornaments for each other in all the different cities where we lived. So as Carmen moved to different NFL cities she would have to find me a special ornament there. So are ornament exchange came full circle today.........I guess good friends really know each others taste inside and out!!! There's nothing like a great girlfriend..............
My postman also delivered these wonderful parcels to me and I was so excited.
This is my second order of vintage wall paper from Under The Red Roof. I can't wait to start cutting and pasting these beauties on a special project I have in mind........ I also have my eye on these......
which might be the next treat for myself!!!! When its cold outside its time to be crafty don't you think?
