We're having another snowy day here in the Ocean State and while the outside view is very pretty and I know that winter is essentially just beginning, today I am longing for warmth. Actually, heat: that feeling of hot sun on your face when you're lying at the beach.

Until then, I will make a hot cup of
get some good hugs, and enjoy the warm, friendly comments from all my pals here at Blog Island!

No one ever vacations in Blechhtenstein, where the outlook could kill you just by looking at you and the folks are scared to cross their tyrannical despot. Oh well. More beet stew and ragweed bread for me, then!

I know you wont believe this but, a lot of us here in California would like to switch places with you for awhile. I guess the "for awhile" part is the key. Anyhow, try and stay warm.

Oh I love the picture, I don't know why I can't ever figure out how to use these cool tools ); I tried to make one for my header and it wouldn't work?? Anyways, don't come to FL, it's cold here too, it's going to be in the 30's tonight and we have freeze warnings, one minute it's record highs in the 80's and the next were freezing! LOL. Crazy FL weather! Stay warm and cozy!

oh gosh I hear you , I have been making endless pots of tea, and torturing myself by looking at the weather where we lived in Virginia last year, so much more pleasant than here in Illinois. Keep well and warm Elyse!

I'm so ready for spring. Summer gets a bit hot for me, but I'm longing for something other than rain, snow, and cold.

Elyse would you please email me concerning an order from your Etsy shop. Thanks so much!!

Hi Elyse,

Just stopping in to see how my buddy is doing.

Everything is looking might pretty here. I love the softness of all your creations. They are so delicate and dainty.

Your blog feels like summer ~ and we both know ~ you and I are far from summer weather now aren't we?

I happen to love the snow pictures because it helps me feel a little more winterish... keep em' coming!

Glitter and Bliss said...

I am so ready for spring. We have had a cold winter too...just not all the snow that I know you're getting. Again, I have to say...R.I. is breathtaking... no matter what season. Last spring, we stayed in Newport for a week. It was heaven. Soak up some New England life for your Okie friend. Hugs.... Leslie

We had cold, cold weather this past week for NC...It was 7 degrees a few times! Today was the perfect day. 69 degrees and sunny. We had lunch outside in our courtyard and enjoyed the sun.
