It is not fit for man or beast in our parts today. They cancelled school as well. Apparently the weather has gotten us confused with the NORTH POLE! It was negative 24 degrees this morning...and that is NO JOKE. I wish I could say I did not have to leave the house today..but I did...we were out of milk and other staples. Since Santa is my neighbor now....I thought I had better snap some pics of the holly jollyiness around here. I really went simple this year....I was just not up to any over the top decorating. The older I get the more I think about putting it all back in totes..and what a job it is. SIGH. Me being someone who LOVES Christmas...and already thinking about the future work involved. Did I just say that out loud??? Well anyways...on with the pics....I had to use my little point and shoot Canon so the pics are not the best...soooo bear with me! I have penny pinched and saved and so we made a pilgrimage 4 hours away to our "LOCAL" Ikea...and I bought the Ektorp Svanby beige sectional and a chair. I hope to make one more trip and get another chair to flank our fireplace. I have been happy so far with them...although the beige is def. MORE white looking to me. It will def. be getting washed a lot in this family (TWO black animals, two men folk, ). I got in on the FREE white slipcovers as well...which I am almost scared to use. I have heard so many (mostly in mags) say oh we just throw them in the washing machine and we are good to go...little bleach.....lets hope that is the case. I sure do LOVE the look though.. ...YUMMMMY. My birthday is coming up as well so I fanagled a new glass sofa console out of my dh. Looks nice behind the sectional I think. Well I hope to take part two pics soon.....the lighting is so terrible in this home. Is there a better/faster way to download pics and enlarge them other than in edit html? I might actually post more if I could take less time downloading all of this.
Other than that if you have time please take a peek at my etsy store...I have several items left that I would be thrilled to find a new home for! Convoy me for custom orders. THanks so much folks.....pray for warmer weather here....it really is bitterly cold. Hugs to u all. xoxo, cherry
