I have had a very relaxing weekend before Christmas.
Yesterday I watched two movies in one day (the second time this month that I have watched movies!). We rented Julie and Julia and before lunch I watched Something's Gotta Give (With Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton).
I am agreeing with Betty -- there's a lot to be said for not overdoing the decorating and baking. Actually I have not done any baking since I made that one batch of shortbread.
I have to show you another perfect match purchase -- yes, it thrills me to no end! I got this tote bag a few weeks ago. It is the exact same color as this jacket and pullover top I ordered a couple of months ago.
I don't know what's with me and tote bags lately--before long I am going to be the tote bag queen.
This one is made of denim and, oh, so sturdy.
You have to really love yellow to wear this combo! LOL. A pair of brown jeans would tone it down a bit, I think.
I do love the color, but I don't love the fabric on the jacket. It pills something awful. I probably should have sent it back, but I never send anything back--too much trouble. If poor quality continues to be a factor, I just stop ordering from the company. I do love the fabric design and the fit, so I just pick off all the pills before wearing it. I don't usually talk price, but I really must brag on my good deal. See the price? Way too much for this bargain sleuth!
This was marked down to $15.99, I used a coupon to get another 30% off and free shipping!!! Can you believe it? I paid around $12 for the tote. Yesterday I was surfing through the site and it's in the outlet for $39.99. Oh, I feel so good getting such a great bargain!
Earlier in the week I started a new tree skirt to match my aqua, bronze, and green color scheme.
Between movies, I worked on it. I wrote about it on my quilting blog so I won't go into details here.
Today I am going to make a big pot of chicken noodle soup. I cooked the chicken yesterday, so it will be a quick light dinner.
I hope those of you getting hit with the massive snow (like Dianne) are all O.K. We have had our share of big snow storms, so I know what you are going through. Try to enjoy the beauty, but get someone else to plow out the driveway!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
