This large swan pendant was a piece in my Great Aunt’s jewelry box that I felt a need to keep! It is gaudy and large but for whatever reason I love it! So I beaded a strand with white glass pearls to make a classy choker.
If you live in the Northeast you probably dealt with that crazy nor’easter last Saturday night! A week later this white stuff is still here. Ugh!
Amongst the leaves! The storm has also left some large tree limbs in my yard so leaf clean up is going to include tree clean up as well this year!!!
Luckily these boots came in the mail this week. This was a great eBay auction…won them brand new at $37 and they have a retail of $95!!! The label is Mountrek and they are supposed to be really warm and waterproof. I found some great reviews on Amazon for them but their price was $95. Bargains make me really happy. I love the shiny, strange fabric. They are super lightweight too! Perfect for winter wear to work and for errands. Hopefully they are grippy on ice too.
These are my dusty Sorels (they have been in a closet all summer – apparently it is dusty in there)! I bought them when I moved into my house since I have a large driveway to shovel. These heavy duty boots keep my feet extremely warm and dry. They are wild looking too! This is perfect for anything categorized as a blizzard or a snowy nor’easter.
I may as well show off my new coat too. This was another great eBay deal. I love the style. This green was not my first color choice but the color I wanted was not available in my size. It turns out I really love this one though! It looks great with the top button either buttoned or unbuttoned.
Due to the aftermath of the storm, trick or treating was postponed from Monday to Wednesday as many in my area were left without power for days and I am sure there are some still without it as I write this!!! I was fortunate enough to have only lost power for less than 24 hours. If this is any indication of how our winter will be, we are in for a doozey!!!!!
I stupidly purchase the candy I like every year for the kids. Why do I do that to myself? I have no will power around classic American chocolate bars!!!
These fun witch lanyards are on their way to the U.K. My customer purchased 2 prior and I figured they were for Halloween. Then she requested 2 more and come to find out they are Christmas gifts for co-workers. They are in a clique names the witches. How fun!
Thank for stopping by!!! I wish you all a great, stress-free week. ~Val
