Surprise Visit and New Friend

Last week, I receive an email from Laurie May of
Laurie's Charming Designs. Laurie had purchased some tinsel from me last year and was in need of a little more for a project she was working on. I found more of the tinsel and we made arrangements for her to come to my home for it. We live about 25 minutes from each other, but have never gotten together to visit. We run into each other at various antique venues, but never to visit and get to know each other. In trade for the tinsel, Laurie brought me the cutest little glass magnets that have her hand-painted snowmen peaking through! They are so tiny and so sweet! My pictures don't do them justice but, I had to share them with you. We are looking forward to getting together after the first of the year so she can teach me a new project. Thank you again Laurie! I love them.

Also, I have to share another picture of the snow. It has been really coming down this afternoon out in our neck of the woods. School has been cancelled all week - very icy underneath. My hubby and I struck out this morning and got some Christmas shopping done before more accumulates or things freeze tonight. I wonder if they will cancel classes again tomorrow? Might it be an early Christmas vacation? We'll have to wait and see! Keep warm! M.

Hi Martha...

Oh, they are so sweet! That Laurie is pretty talented!

The pictures of your snow are lovely. I love it when it is untouched and you just see the beauty of nature.

Have a great weekend,
Hugs, Nancy

Hi I am blog hopping and hopped in from a feathered nest, saw you were in Salem Or. And decided tosay Hi. I lived in Salem many years ago in my single days, now we call clackamas home. And we have about a foot of snow with ice. I don't know what tomarrow will bring as far as work goes for the family. Stay warm. TTFN
