The snow is falling all around the Northern Va, DC,MD area...we are in for maybe up to 2 feet, we'll see...hubby just started shoveling.
We were up at 4:30am to get to the all night Harris Teeter to be surprised as we walked in to find...empty shelves! (not totally, but the one banana was a funny site) The produce was low, milk was nil, and when we went to check out the lines were already long. Upon reaching our turn at the cash register we learned could not purchase our 2 bottles of wine -hubby took so long to pick out- as I ran around grabbing cat food...well...it was 5:55 AM, alcohol in our state cannot be sold until 6 AM (so we learned). we simply couldn't hold up the people in line behind us (many looking like they just rolled out of bed with the idea we had in getting an early shot at some goods before the shelves clear out)in this fast paced area...needles to say we left the wine. (Later, after hubby got home from DC we ventured over to Whole Foods and were able to choose some wine, and fresh produce.) There will be stew on a snowy day!!!
Yesterday I enjoyed a play date with a dear friend, Jodi, who is an awesome artist and jeweler. I brought her cupcakes (check out the vintage aprons she sewed together for her window in one section of her studio)
Check out The Magpie's Treasure Blog here :-) she's' doing some intricate hinge-work...
She actually worked on a piece which is going to be so beautiful when finished (though it's already beautiful because she sketches her designs and puts so much thought and patience into her work). See her link above for her latest piece!!!
I, on the other hand, decided to "play" in another area of her studio...I was feeling crafty and wanted to feel like a kid.
Her boy-cat decided he would like to have a nap along my scraps...isn't he something?
I had some lovely Etsy orders come in for Valentines Day and loved putting them together and out to the post office! Thank you dear dear customers (friends) for your orders! The goodies will be at your houses tomorrow (weather permitting, or Monday!)
A couple of days before this, after another snow storm where we had about 4 inches of snow, hubby and I snuck off for one of our coffee dates. I was in dire need of a new phone, so here he is checking it all out for me.
(I love this boy so much)
Here's Bart enjoying our new carpet, look at those blue eyes!
and finally, here's Scrappy, she loves to sit in hiding spots and watch!
Hope to get pics of my other 2 furry creatures tomorrow
I hope everyone is warm and safe!
