For Kim ~ The Hat

Kim, here's the hat! I did think after I made that post that I should have shown the hat, but I didn't. This kind of hat is the only kind that looks even remotely okay with my super-round face!
I even love the label. It's not actually vintage, I bought it new. But I love the look.

When I woke up this morning, I was looking at the small closet across from my bed. I realized that I have never liked those dark green knobs. Dark green went with the colors of the previous owner, but not with me. I think I will be hitting Anthropology next weekend. Yum!

~The One Where She Wears a Hat to Church~

I will confess right now that I have always had a bit of a love~hate relationship with the holiday of Valentine's Day. So I try and make it one that I have brought my own meaning to, in my own way. Today, I wore a hat to church. I love this vintage-inspired hat that I found, and I decided I was the kind of girl who would wear that hat to church. I finished my crafting project (remember the cards and the candy bars?) and I was able to use our days of snow to enjoy a little more time with some beautiful things. I found this ring while I was out poking around yesterday. Lovely and simple.
My daughter's play has been postponed for two weekends now due to the weather. I wanted to make her something special for both performances. I made these nosegays, and I love how they turned out. Now, I just have to hide them from her prying eyes...and remember for next weekend where I put them!

Over the weekend, I set aside some time to read the new issue of Artful Blogging. I love looking through all the delicious pages of that magazine! I always read it when I have timeo soak it all up. I think one of the things I enjoy about it most is that other women talk about their relief at finding friends who 'get' the same things that they like, and the ability to find an entire virtual world of enless inspiration. I couldn't agree more ~

~Happy Valentine's Day, Friend ~

~Valentines Crafts ~

Being stuck inside has afforded me no excuses for finishing up my holiday craft ideas. Inspired by the dreamiest of all wedding great aunt's ...(the one in the middle) I raided my wedding stash and made these hand made cards for friends.
When they were assembled, they looked like this!

Hubby tried hard to dig out the mailbox in hopes the mailman would get through. Nothing yet. Valentine's Day is fast approaching...Hurry, Mr. Mailman!

Holy Cow! What a Storm!

Man, what a storm! Ok..obviously this is not it...I found this here. But we got wholloped with a storm last night and today. No good pics yet. I took a few from inside, but I wasn't up for venturing out! Who could pass up a day indoors to cuddle up and relax? More to come!
