Weekend Projects - Well Almost

Some quick little things I put together to get out in the mail this weekend.  Gift tags and a little scalloped gift box.  (It was time for the sending of the Christmas socks and someone else is getting a surprise in the mail in a few days.)

And this next picture - well, I got some new bird ornaments and had them lying on the counter like this and it just reminded me of those drawers in the Smithsonian where they have all the specimens. 

We had our first snow on Saturday and of course we were out and about Christmas Shopping in it.  I even got treated to lunch/dinner at Cracker Barrel.  I wanted to check out their gift shop.  I always find some cool things there.  (They have Jelly Belly Raspberries and Blackberries - the jellies - love em!)  There wasn't a noticeable accumulation left here today.  But it has gotten colder - just in time for them to come tomorrow and replace my kitchen skylight.  I think I'll be camping out upstairs - heat rises right?

Hope you had a great weekend.


  1. Not so sure about heat rising. Yes, in theory. But these mornings my attic can be 14C, while downstairs is about 19 or so. Hope your window gets done quickly.
    Love those bird ornaments - they will look so pretty on the tree.

  2. So glad you are feeling better Lorraine. This sure has been your year of surgery. With the end of 2009 in sight, it must be the end of all the surgery right!?

    Here in central Utah it is snowing. It looks like we are getting all the snow for the last month.

  3. SPLAT!!! OMG! I got the coolest pink snowballs in the mail today. SPLAT!!! They probably won't sit around for long. SPLAT!!! I love snowballs. SPLAT!!!
    Oh, Lorraine, what a hoot you are! It was such a fun treat to come home from a grueling day at work and absolutely laugh out loud when I opened your snowball package! Thank YOU so much! It truly was a special, unexpected treat and made my day. You are so funny! Your snowflake gift tag is darling.
    Thank you, thank you! SPLAT!!!!
