Today Charlotte is an Icee...or maybe a Slushee...but no flavor ~ simply grey and tasteless...
No snow...not so much pretty as just C-O-L-D and W-E-T.
Talked to my babe in Iowa City earlier and he had trekked in to work early because they had 3 inches already and he wanted to get there before it got worse. It is 19 degrees there with snow showers predicted all morning.. not your storm of the century, but a true Midwestern Wintry day.
I was by myself last night with everyone else scattered at work or Youth activities/Talent Show, so I built myself a fire. and sat by it with the puppers enjoying the warmth. There is something nice about some twinkle lights on the mantel and a crackling, popping fire in the otherwise quiet darkness.
Just decided to do a little post with some color, since it is so absent outside today when I look out my window... inspiring me to throw some out there... (Where are those beautiful Carolina Blue skies that were here yesterday with nary a cloud in the sky????????)
My mom and dad gave me this Ceramic Christmas tree. My mom had made herself one years ago when I was a child, and she dabbled in Ceramics. She and Dad came across some of these trees recently and wanted to give one each to my siblings and myself. They had a church member who had a ceramics shop and had her supply all the missing lights and any other work that needed to be done. It is very special. This year it is EXTRA special and graces the Front Hall for everybody to see many times during the day.
Can I even DO a post without blue and white in it??? More vintage Christmas balls...
Another GW Santa, this time not in white....but DEEP Velvet Red....
Nandina Berries. Mother Nature's own contribution to December Christmas ornaments. So bright and cheerful in the grey wintry landscape.
Kam's Santa hat...found it's hat-rack in the dining room...lol. I liked the way it looked. :-)
This cute little fella was standing at the checkout counter at GW and I asked if he was also for sale, and the girl said yes...so I nabbed her Christmas decoration. Here he sits guarding the reindeer...errrr....doggie chow.. :-)
Thanks for popping in to visit. Hope you all have a warm sunny day in your heart even if it is cold and wet outside where you are. Hugs a plenty being passed out from this little post in North Carolina. God's blessings on you today.
