Photo-Tuesday

Untitled

Happy Tuesday my dear friends! Today I'm sharing a couple of shots from Sunday afternoon. It was a little rainy and dreary in the morning, but in the afternoon I looked out the window and the sun was shining and there was some amazing fog on the lake... (It was nice to see that someone was out in a canoe clearly enjoying the view as much as me!)

Christmas WIPs

Untitled

Hey everyone! I had been worrying that I forgot how to crochet! I've been pretty busy, so I thought it would be good to find a project that was easy to pick up and put down, and something that didn't take long to see results! Thanks to Ale, who gave me that fantastic Japanese crochet motif book, I've been making snowflakes and other ornaments! Once I get some more made, I'm going to starch them.

What are you guys working on? Any fun Christmas projects?

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?" -J.B. Priestley

Happy Tuesday my friends! I was pretty surprised to see some snow when I opened my curtains yesterday morning. I won't lie, my reaction was a mix of "ugh, I'm not ready" and "oh, pretty!" I'd also be lying if I said that I didn't take those pictures outside in my pajamas.

I hope you all have a beautiful day!

Sunday Smiles

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I did! We had a birthday party for my Gram who turned 94! (I have a few photos to share... I was having too much fun talking to everyone that I slacked on photos!)

Happy Tuesday friends! Today I have little snippets from my busy weekend (and week). I found a little bit of time to get myself into the Christmas gift mode with some "Christmasy" crochet. And seeing Pete in the window is a nice reminder to sit down, stop and just look at things!

How are you all doing? Thinking about the holidays?
