Junuary

Yes, that's what it is around here. They're forecasting 6-12" of snow in the passes!

On a happier note, I received my wonderful swap buttons from Michelle. For more button photos, do visit the Flickr group.

My dogwood doesn't seem to realize that winter's still here. So pretty!

We're empty-nesters this week. It's going to be very, very strange. I'm planning on getting some things done, including painting the new fireplace mantel (remember?), which will be the final step in the project. Next we're moving on to the kitchen. This will be a little more of a costly project, I'm afraid.

Pin It!
