Winter Wonderland

The snowstorm has started. We are expecting anywhere from 2-8 inches, depending on which talking head is doing the predicting. I spent the day doing errands and finishing up some Christmas stuff here at the house. Remember when I said Bill was going to pick up some lights for the tree on the way home from hockey? Well, he did. White lights - commercial grade. Our vintage white artificial tree looks, well..... other-worldly. The brightness kind of grows on you. I might be able to retire my Ott light for the holidays and sew by the light of the tree. (Yes, the only light on in the house is the tree!)I wrapped presents........I also changed some of the quilts around. The German glass glitter Empire State building shows up better against Brrrrr Park.Bill is at hockey again and I hope the roads aren't too bad for the ride home. Here's hoping you are keeping warm and your travel is safe.

Just love the Empire State Glitter! I think glitter in general makes everything better. I say we all wear glitter on our cheeks for the entire next year to help boost spirits. Love the quilt. It's so amazing and touches the heart with the little sprinkle of red. Merry Christmas! Pam in Chico
