This moss only shows up in the winter, and it reminds me of green velvet, and I sure wish it would stick around longer.
This is a total random post, but these are things that I notice outside my door everyday, and remind me that it is winter time.
Winter, especially January, reminds me of when my parents brought home my baby sister. It was a foggy misty morning on January 15th 1970. I remember I could not take my eyes off of her the whole way home. Back in 1970 there were no car seats, or parents not making sure you had your seatbelt on, so I remember leaning over the front seat staring at my baby sister in my mom's arms. Today that is unheard of, can you imagine anyone today sitting in the passenger seat holding a newborn baby? Anyway........... I think because of this special event in my life, I love January because it brought my best little buddy in the whole wide world, into my life. Next week we will celebrate her birthday.
I received the "I love your blog award," from Cindy over at Quaint handmade, where I must share 10 revelations about me.
1. Why did you create this blog?
It started out to be an online journal of sorts, to document my family and things I made and cooked. I think that it still is, pretty much true to that. It may evolve if I open an Etsy shop, something that I have been thinking about for a while. Stay tuned for that.
2. What kinds of blogs do you follow?
I love, of course cooking and sewing ones, but also cute young families just starting out in their life adventures, and design blogs, like Design Sponge. Pretty much anything that has lots of eye candy!
3. Favorite makeup brand?
I guess I really don't have one per se, good old drug store brands like L'Oreal. My daughters on the other hand, have the most amazing collection of makeup. I love when Caitlin does my makeup. She even has a You Tube channel for tutorials!
4. Favorite clothing brand?
I would have to say Anthropologie for whimsical pieces, and Gap/Banana Republic for more practical items.
5. Your indispensable makeup product?
My Burt"s Bee's lip gloss in the color "Fig."
6. Your favorite color?
I can't say that I have a favorite, but I do notice that I gravitate towards red, and some purples.
7. Your perfume?
Annick Goutal "Eau de Charlotte."
8. Your favorite film?
That would have to be "Babette's Feast."
9. What country would you like to visit and why?
I think I would have to say Greece. I fell in love with it when I took a Greek art history class in college. Plus I love the food!
10. Make up the question and answer it yourself. What do you think your gift is?
Creating handmade pretty things :)
The rules are that I have to bestow this love to 10 others, so if you read this and want to play consider yourself awarded. Leanne, Rebekka, Christine, Dawn, Bonnie, Caitlin, Nicole, Tricia ,Carolina, and Georgia.
On a different note, the bottom photo is the first dish Caitlin and Cyrous made for their new cooking blog, which is called, "C&C cooking adventures." They will have another dish up after this weekend, so stay tuned.
