lovely day...

Good morning! We have about 5-6 inches of snow on the ground today and my garden grandma is not too happy, as you can see. And it's still snowing. Being a person who doesn't ski anymore and doesn't like snow, I wish it would just go away. I know - we need the moisture. But I don't enjoy the snow. I would rather sit by the fire with a good book and a warm blanket.


Yesterday, all of the antique stores in my area were hosting their annual Shop and Stroll. The weather was supposed to be snowy and cold but wasn't, so I ventured out. Everything was on sale and they all had goodies - posole, brownies, veggies and dip, etc. I hit a few of them but didn't have time to make them all. Anyway, this was a really pretty and unique bracelet I found at one shop. No, I didn't buy it but it definitely caught my eye. I don't usually wear a lot of jewelry, it's just not my thing. This was $75.

Look at how pretty it was yesterday. This is my little house near the Open Space area that I like to paint. Look at those fluffy clouds! This will definitely become a painting.

This is an old fashioned Christmas tree in one of the stores. Itwas beautiful and really got me in the Christmas mood. Remember those white and silver trees?


This is a view of Bert's room at the Antique Co-op. He has the coolest treasures. I always love the cupboards and things he finds from Mexico, but I can never afford them.


I hit about three shops and brought home a beautiful cross (a photo later), a vintage Christmas ornament, a book on painting, and a book on how to make a million things from dollar bills (complete with a dvd and fake dollar bills). I think I hit the jackpot.
