Life in My World

It’s been beautifully foggy and gray the last two days.  This morning I wore a gray skirt, a gray sweater, and a gray coat.  As I got ready to go out the door Calvin said, “You better not go outside, you might get lost and no one will be able to find you.”
He must have forgotten that I got some great little flashlights at his work party gift exchange last night so he can use them to come and find me. 

A couple of you have asked where I got our grandchildren ornaments.  I ordered them from .  I doubt if you ordered them now they would arrive before Christmas as the ornaments seem to take longer to process than most of the other items they offer, but they are pretty and the quality is good.  (The kids tease me that I overuse artscow, and they just may be right, but I do like their photo-things.)  I order two ornaments when each grandchild is born (one for us and one for their parents), and the plan is when the grandkids get older and come to our house they can see their cousins and look for their picture and know they are all loved and remembered.  (I plan to tape a little chocolate coin or some surprise on the back of it for them to find, too.)

I love gray! I am always drawn to it.

I like the way you know what you like and get as much use out of it as possible. Sounds like a fun tradition you have started!

Photo ornaments are always my favorite! I've never ordered any before but have made some over the years and it's always so fun to put them on the tree the next year.

I love the idea of the grandkids coming to visit and seeing themselves on your tree

That is a GREAT idea!!
And gray is a fabulous color. I always feel comfortable and assured in gray.
I love you. Happy Holidays!

This is brilliant, an idea I will have to tuck this one away!
