Oh yeaaaah. That's better. Now, back to Snowmageddon. It hasn't actually started yet. These pictures were taken last year. Beats me why she never uploaded them. Because, well - just look at me! Pretty gorgeous, huh?So here's whatcha do after the first sprint around the yard.Not bad.This is one of my favorite spots. I can keep an eye on the birds and that durn possum that drops in uninvited sometimes. I ran that varmit off last year but I think he might have a rascal cousin. Anyway I can also watch the weather from this great bench AJ built for me.Yep, pretty good chance it's going to snow. So do what I do. Run around the yard like a crazy dog. Roll around in it some. Mark a few favorite spots (that yellow shows up real good on the white). Have another good stretch.Then get'cherself a nice warm quilt & curl up in your favorite chair.
Before you know it, it'll be spring again! Y'all stay safe out there.

At another junk store, I recently got one of those old boxes that used to hold print blocks. I've always thought they were so neat with all their little cubbies. It's holding about 1/8 of my stamps. The closet is outfitted with wire racks and this is where you'll find the Mother Lode. The Fabric Stash. Oh my goodness, you wouldn't believe the visions & dreams just waiting to be realized behind those bi-fold doors!! Clothes, banners, embroidery projects, art dolls, curtains, table runners, pillows.... You see, I used to work at a fabric store. Who can resist using their employee 20% discount, especially on things that are already on sale?! Should some dreary global catastrophe happen, I will at least have fabric to make throw pillows and dolls!!!And here's a wide shot of the clean & organized room. I have one more thing in mind to add - a long shelf to display future dolls, with a rod under it for holding bolts of ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to my hideout!
