It's cold outside!

We are hard and fast into winter right now.  The weather is bitter cold, the hot chocolate kind of days that make you want to sit under the covers all day.  Rarely though, do I get to do that because as a Mom and Granny, duty calls. 

You can however even tell when winter hits inside the house because this is what my dishwasher looks like....more mugs!    

For years I have had these little mugs just waiting for little grand kids in my life.  I am happy to report that they are being used and it makes me so happy.  Hot Chocolate complete with peppermint mini marshmallows!  The little dipper mug I have had since Nicole was little and she used to use it when she had 'coffee' with Daddy.

10 Things

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you all receive blessings beyond measure this year and that you are met right where you are.

My 10 things this month are total random because well I have been all over the place in emotions.

1. One of my favorite artists is Kelly Rae Roberts and I have always wanted to own something of hers.  Things come up though and it seems I just never get around to it.  Yesterday apparently was my day!  I was a local thrift store and there this beautiful lady was.  Telling me exactly what I needed to hear.

2.  A jar of beautiful beads that my daughter allowed me to put on display in my corner.

3.  Jars of buttons, they make me so happy.  I can spend hours looking at them.

4.  Pretty fabric on the top of my list to do something with soon!  Just not sure what.

5.  Alphabet letters, from the thrift store to use in my art.

6.  My new gardening boots that are sitting quietly in my corner waiting for Spring.

7. My new stove and the special teapot I bought my daughter for Christmas.

8. Cinnamon Rolls that look like a flower when you put them on a plate.

9.  This little lady taking a picture of me.....I love her.

10.  My Grandson celebrating his 5th birthday.
