It's 50 degrees outside. Yay! we have finally cooled off in the mornings. It'll be in the 70's later.
So, here's my "likes" list for this week:
1. Stash fabric for emergencies. I have most the Christmas shopping done, wrapped and under the tree. That was after I made a very basic circle tree skirt in a new light blue fabric I found in the stash.
I still wanted the light blue fabric for the bottom cause it looks like snow to me. A girl can dream. (Sorry that the photo is a little blurry).
As usual, I'm having a difficult time "getting in the spirit of the holidays " but I'm trying. I've gone to 2 malls in the area and they were so boring- no music,-- one didn't even have decorations-- and quite honestly, there were not the usual amount of shoppers.
2. My "HGTV " shelf over the tv. I don't have much table or shelf space in this living room but wanted a place for little knick knacks so my SIL installed a shelf for me. When Thomas saw it for the first time , he said, " A HGTV shelf. I love it". We all laughed. He obviously watched that channel with his mom.
It is about 3 feet long, just enough for the space. We love the little light it provides (I used battery operated white string lights in the background).
3. My Three Wise Women towel. My daughter gave it to me a few years ago.. She knows me so well.
4. Time Magazine's Persons of the year- the Silence Breakers. What a year this has been! The Silence Breakers are the persons (men and women) who can finally open up, speak up and state who has harmed them. I have been so blessed to have never faced sexual harassment/ assault in the workplace or public. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to come forward in public. I'm pleased this group of people are being recognized and perhaps this will encourage others to come forward as well as scare the crap out of the abusers. just sayin. I won't even go into the crimes aspect here.
Time to get ready for my annual mammo (mom had breast cancer) so need to cut this short this week. Why can't someone invent a more pleasant way to X-ray my boobs? It is so uncomfortable! Oh well, better than the alternative.
My daughter and I are going to see a special playing of "White Christmas" at the movies Saturday so that should be fun.
I hope you all are enjoying this holiday season. Please hook up with Lee Anna :Not Afraid of Color to see our group of "likers".
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
