A Delicious Palette!
A favorite color palette of mine.....shades of white and natural wood tones. These are some of the lovely things I picked up for Flourishes this weekend! I don't exactly know what those wooden dumbbell looking things are....something for darning perhaps?....but I thought they would look fabulous on a stack of books. Ohhhhh, the treasures I've found these past two weekends!!
I've even put Bill to work fashioning funky cool stuff using repurposed materials we found. Pictured is one of the coat racks he built last night using old door headers and door knobs. Wait until you see the birdhouses and cubby shelves he's building!! Not to mention the cupboards with lead glass windows!! Oh, oh, oh!! It's all I can do to keep myself from showing a picture of every little thing!
Today is a snow day. Yes, it snowed......again. Oh, bother. I'm soooooo over snow. It's only supposed to snow once a year here, if that. I think this is probably the sixth or seventh time. Enough already!! I'm sorry, I'm just not a snow and cold type of gal. Big fluffy coats and heavy boots make me feel like a walking marshmallow. It's so not an attractive look on me. I didn't like it when I was a kid growing up in Alaska and I like it even less as an adult!! Okay, the adult part is debatable on most days, I admit. Ha!
Oh, and before I forget....three new bears list tomorrow!! I've actually spent time in the studio on other things besides paper and glitter projects. Who knew?!!
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
