I worked on my 9 year old niece’s Christmas present. She requested a bunch of earrings. A couple of months ago she texted me that blues and greens are her favorite colors so that deemed to be useful information!
I love these abstract star charms. I am hoping to have enough time to make something else for her with them before the holiday!!!
So it was Jim’s birthday on the 14th and I got him this wine which we both love but since we are paying attention to our spending, we have not had in a long time! Earthquake cab is $23/bottle but worth every penny! I also got him the Michael Buble Christmas CD! We both adore him.
He loves cheese with his wine so I got these…roasted garlic chedder, brie, gruyere and plain chedder. I am so jealous of him since I am lactose intolerant. Of course my taste buds love cheese. Total curse.
The moment I knew my fabulous Jim was different from other men was when after date number 2 he called me to say he got us tickets for the Buble concert in Boston. The date of the concert was almost 2 months out and I remember thinking…wow this guy really believes in us! I have learned from this relationship that believing in it is key. I always thought trust was the key…and it is, but beyond that we need to believe in our relationships. It removes any doubts we may have!
We attended a Christmas party last weekend and I was excited to wear these vintage costume pearls.
They had belonged to my great aunt and I have had them for quite a while but this was the first opportunity I have had to wear them! I will have to find some new tops that work with the necklace. I feel like it is too dressy to wear down….maybe if there was 1 less strand I could pull off a casual look with them.
I get excited about the strangest things.
I have used 2 different sized padded mailers for the longest time and I just incorporated these adorable little mailers into the business! I never thought I would ever use the word adorable and mailers in the same sentence! They will be perfect for when I just ship small findings orders. Their length is about the length of a pen!
My new boiler was installed Thursday! Hallelujah to future savings in oil consumption and electricity!!!! It is not a pretty contraption and it cost a significant amount of money but I am excited about this too! It is so tiny compared to my old rusty unit from 1960. This thing looks confusing to me and the installer asked me if I had any questions. It made no sense for me ask any since the answers would have gone through 1 ear and out the other! I have the manual and their phone number which should suffice!
The installation went too smoothly so I had a bad feeling about that. I awoke the next day in a sweltering hot house!!!! The thermostat was turned down to 62 overnight and the house was over 70 degrees! Luckily the contractor came back Friday and now it is normal.
I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season! Before we know it, the new year will be here! ~Val
