Exchange received, and few odds and ends

Last week I received my snowman ornament, from Jayne in England.(I'm sorry it isn't the greatest picture...I was having issues with the lighting...) Jayne used the snowflake snowman from "He's a Flake" by Little House Needleworks. So cute! And such a unique shape. I love it, Jayne, thank you!


In other news, we're in the midst of planning to travel for my sister-in-law's wedding, to be held in Iowa next month. I'm doing my best to keep our costs to a minimum, and to that end I was scouring the thrift shops for a dress for me. (I found one for the Wee Peanut at Kohl's for $8. Geez, if only I could outfit myself so cheaply!) And? I did it! $6!!! Plus some help from Mom to make a few alterations, and here it is:(Obviously the wee one isn't mine.) Mom and I took in the sides and shortened it significantly, and I love it! Plus, it is casual enough that I can wear it to work after the wedding.

Until next time, may your carpets stay free of pet hair....because you never know when someone might be eating off of them...
