Outside my window ~
It's incredibly mild and (dare I say) Spring-like! Yikes, what's this going to mean for the rest of Winter??? The dear children would really LOVE a good snowstorm, but unlike our old Idaho digs, we certainly won't see much white here in the Pacific Northwest this year I'm afraid.
A pale pink rib-knit turtleneck sweater, black yoga pants and my favorite full circle wrap-around red apron. It's my mother's made by my paternal grandmother and gifted to me :) It has the most darling little yellow and white six-point star flowers and a lacy folksy black leaf print all over, makes me smile just to put it on!!
Another Tasha Tudor shawl in a lovely pale grey wool (thanks to a JoAnn's yarn sale recently) an airy Tropical breezes wrap courtesy of Lion Brand Yarn's free patterns, also some pure white cotton Waffle weave washcloths (I LOVE these) I'll try and pop some pictures up over the weekend :)
Villette by Charlotte Bronte, very good start, beautiful writing style. I also have Strangers and Sojourners in the queue, I actually started it, but also started Villete at the same time and opted for it first. Am also browsing and pondering over Handmade Home by Amanda Soule. Lots of nice ideas in this second book of hers.
