Heather from Blackberry Rambles gave me this darling owl (Did I already go on and on about it? If so, sorry!) and Danette from Rose Petal Tea sent me a knitted tree along with my Jane Austen mitts. Such sweetie pies!
Here's Bill pushing the big red snow blower!
The sisters of The Holy Nativity Convent (remember Susan Branch posted about them?) DO make lovely things! I ordered this clock for Brad's birthday. The beeswax candles are lovely, too. When I light them I will take a photo. Promise.
My friend Gigi posted about Kuksa cups from Finland. You can order them on Amazon so I ordered one for Brad. Don't YOU want one? Me, too!
I forgot to show you the big sticker Bill gave me at Christmas.
James still likes Kelli's Fisher Price house. We've had it for 32 years.
April made many cute hats at Christmas! They come in little "knit it yourself" kits and include the cute animal pom poms! LOVE!
I've been having fun with my jelly pens.
And the grands are STILL eating candy canes.
I thought you might need a quick brownie batter peek.
Sweet faces . . .
Since I was gone for five days Tim missed his lap time. He sat on Bill's lap but I guess I sit around more than he does! (lol) He was very happy to see me.
Out walking the other day, I spied this tiny pine tree adorned with just one red ball. Clever.
A cozy spot (very necessary because I'm feeling the winter cold)
Here are my mitts from Danette at FrontPorchKnits! Her Etsy shop is lovely. She is a FAST knitter!
Lovely stripes (smile)
Excuse the telephone wires but this is the sunrise taken from my mom's deck.
And all day every day we watched the swans poke around in the grassy field below Mom's house.
I was thrilled to visit with my brothers, my sweet sister, and my two sisters in law. Sister in law Sue took me up to Bellingham for a bookstore visit and a shoreline walk.
Noah Joe Joe Joe is growing like a weed. He's so handsome. His mommy is very sweet to him.
Meanwhile big brother James played with cousin Plum Cake . . .
And yesterday Plum wanted to play beauty shop. She did a very nice job! She said the funniest things like, "Do you like the way I am combing the back of your hair? This chair is JUST for you and you can sit here next time you come to my shop. Would you like a sticker when I am finished?"
I had been eyeing this hobbit tea set made by BornofFireCeramics on Etsy. We ordered it and gave it to Brad for his birthday. He had a very cuppy/potty/muggy birthday this year, didn't he? He LOVES all things TEA!
Well THAT was all a drink from a fire hose, wasn't it?
Thank you for checking in!
Timothy says, "Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."
