Snow at Stillwaters

We got an unexpected surprise on Thursday evening. The weatherman said flurries with no accumulation but this is what happened.
Yes, I know it’s snowing sideways. I’m just tickled because I finally got a video to upload. My digital camera takes short videos and I forgot that if I turn the camera sideways, I can’t just flip the picture upright in Photoshop.


This is the scene that we woke up to on Friday morning. I’m posting this on Saturday and some of it is still here however the temperature is going to be near 60 degrees tomorrow. So fickle is the weather in Tennessee.

I’m enjoying sitting in my warm basement by the woodstove with my laptop, looking out at what’s left of the snow, having a conversation with you.
Here are some very non-wintery earrings that I’ve just recently posted in my Etsy shop.


Surprises In The Mail

Don’t you just love to get surprises? I’ve gotten two lately. The first one was from Steph (aka Vladthebt) There was a lovely decorated box in my mailbox and I knew just who it was from when I saw it. The box was chock full of treasures large and small. There was a cool bracelet and lots of beads and a bag full of different kinds of crosses.I just noticed that the bracelet isn’t in this picture because I immediately put it on my wrist. I had such fun looking at the present and planning what I would make with the items.This necklace was made using some of the beads that Steph sent in a previous gift, plus some of my own.The second surprise was from my cousin Sally. She called and said that she was mailing me a box of wool. She has two sheep, Moses and Pharaoh, so this wool was from them with some other types of wool mixed together. The colors are going to be fun to work with and there is some white for me to dye myself.
What a fun jump start that was to my creativity.
