Winter's Bane of My Existence

Dress: Tulle
Turtleneck: Gap
Tights: Marshall's
Cowl: gift from Brooke Ann
Oxfords: BC Footwear 'Slicker'
Oh, winter, why won't you snow? Mother Nature was such a tease today! She graced us with a few wet snowdrops and then quit on me. Hopefully it's just a preview for Christmas! Can you believe it's less than a week away? I can't wait! I am so excited to prepare a strata on Christmas Eve to eat on Christmas morn, wake up to a warm (and clean) house, give Darin and Rowena gifts, open my stocking, sip eggnogged coffee, and simply enjoy the wonderful company of my little family! I especially can't wait to see Rowena's face when she receives her new (well, 1970s) dollhouse.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!


  1. What a perfect look for the season! The colors are spot on and perfectly winter.

    You have a great collection of ornaments. Eclectic trees are always my favorites. Adding special, fun ornaments always increases the magic factor of Christmas trees, I think.

    Loving the dress and tights combo. The juxtaposition of textures looks really neat.
