I love when the snow sticks to the trees-it's just so beautiful! 

Yeah-I tell him to come in and he just sits there with a snowy grin on his furry face!

Yesterday, I made a rug for someone spesh! 

This is 'Davey'.  And  he's an early birthday gift for my brother-out-law whose name also happens to be 'Davey'!  And now hubby wants a John Deere one. 

'Davey' is made from thrifted red and black tees, a thrifted white sheet, and some red and black wool from thrifted blazers (the emblem).

Guess what I'll be picking up at Goodwill next time.  That would be el cheapo green and yellow tees.

I hope you have a great day!

The world is lovely right now. It's been snowing here for days. My only gripe is having to brave the roads. I've been up to the school four time today -- so far and I still have one more pick-up to make. I don't like going out in the cold and blowing wind.

My dog's snout looks a lot like Rocco's. She's searching for those darn rabbits.
