I miss this lady and I wish we lived closer so that we could sit at our table and watch the people pass by.

I had a lovely Thanksgiving and long weekend. Husband and I watched all 6 Harry Potters and were planning on seeing the new one, until football and tattoos got in our way....maybe next weekend (sigh). This past weekend was extra productive, I finished my new wreath for the front door (I will share pictures tonight), made serious progress on new cake plate designs and even had all of my household chores done by Saturday. I'm getting more and more excited for the holiday season and my shop reopening but there is still so much to do! AHH! On Saturday a girl from church (who I would love love love to open a shop with one day) will be decorating the church building and I can't wait to share pictures. There will be evergreen branches, pine cones, birdies and lets not forget silver glitter. I'm really excited to see it all come together because I have been giddy with excitement since we started planning.

Much Love,

On Friday my sister Melynda and I were in charge of our nephews for the day. We had so much fun playing with them, plus we fed them cookies all day. (After10 days in Utah their diet is completely ruined, sorry Michelle.) We ran a couple errands and then took them up to the mountains to play in the snow, our oldest nephew had been dying to play in the snow since they got here, the youngest didn't seem too happy about it. While Melynda and the oldest had a snowball fight the youngest and I sat in the car being warm and playing with our phones. 

We went to Disney on Ice on Saturday and I will post pictures of that later on today. Sunday as I was getting ready for church I started to feel terrible. I was really hoping whatever it was would go away but by the time church was over I felt even worse and then when I woke up Monday I knew it was my good friend strep throat. I seriously might need to start coming to terms with getting my tonsils taken out, but I will think about that another day.

Much Love,

This last weekend was a much needed break. I had a list of chores to accomplish but with husband getting off at noon on Friday that list was overlooked. We did absolutely nothing from Friday afternoon until Saturday, except watch movies and football games. It was lovely. On Sunday morning we woke up early and got to work preparing the front garden for spring. We didn't do anything this last year and it looked awful all summer, pretty much had the abandoned house look.



Next spring I would like to add shutters to the windows, maybe flower boxes, and pretty vines with trumpet flowers to hide strange spaces between windows.

Table + Chairs

I bought this table. It will soon be white.

Now I need chairs and can't decide on which style I should make. Or maybe just give in and buy some for the time being.
