First snow of the season!

I love Christmas! This is our house all decorated up for Christmas. The first picture is taken in the daylight hours and the second in the evening. It looks a little "cold", especially in the evening pictures, but it feels really warm when you are in it. Hard to put into a picture. The tree is a 12 foot tree and is loads of fun to decorate (ha ha). I put evergreen boughs and lights up my banister as well (not pictured) and hang stockings from the banister too.

This morning we got our first snowfall of the year. It broke a record for being the latest snowfall on record, not due to lack of cold, but to lack of moisture.

Today's Crazy Finds

The only way I got through my workout today was to promise myself a trip to my favorite spots to find vintage embellishments. This was my take. (-; The buttons are just so cute!

It's For the Birds

I signed up for the "For the Birds" Do Your Block (DYB) at Crazy Quilting International (CQI). These are my blocks. When it begins, I will send them out to the first person on my list , she will pick a block, embellish it, and send it on to the next person. It will continue on in this way until 5 blocks have been embellished and the last will be mine to do. I'm so excited to see how they will turn out in the end.
