Besides the usual crap and the bills, which I consider crap too, I got a few packages today, and I was sooo excited. Of course we hadn't been to the post office since Monday, and we knew we better go today because more snow and ice is on its way to our neck of the woods tomorrow and on into Saturday. Sigh.
But this grey day brightened when John carried in these packages:
New slippers from my brother-in-law, Shepherd's Flock, to replace my 3 - 4 year old ones! I wear these EVERY day, and they last a really long time, but my old ones have seen better days and will now be worn only for emergencies... whatever those might be.
These are so snug and cozy and warm, and I love the neoprene sole which means I can wear these outside to the painting studio or to take the dogs out, except in the snow and sleet (although I have taken my chances in the past and done just that!)
These are also great because the cuff can be worn up, for more warmth on my legs, or down. And best of all... they are handmade in Vermont by two very wonderful people!
I also got these great star buttons from claynfiber on Etsy which will probably be put to use in some new jewelry... aren't they great? I love the earthiness of them!
