I know, I know.....it's cold, dreary & blustery....isn't it wonderful? :)
Sigh...pink, floral wrapping paper....the smell of a new bottle of perfume...roses..on a cake...yes, it's my "Birthday Week!"
"Birthday Week?" you say? Of course!
Why only one day? On a month so drear? When you can fill your days with the anticipation of good things to come all month long!
Take for instance, my early birthday gift... a new sewing machine!
I've never had a new sewing machine!
I was quite happy toodling along on my ugly, albeit sturdy & faithful brown Beaumark.
I have however, quite happily converted over to the new!
White definitely looks better in my buttercream, cake-style kitchen. :)
....And yes, that's a brand new quilt you see in the making.... (Roses for January, you know!) ;)
I realize that it isn't "Birthday Month" for everyone...but look for the January joys that are tucked away, nice & warm in your January Home.... dig out that stitchery that's been waiting for you to come back to it for 8 or so months...that tatting or needlepunch that the cat got ahold of....& that quilt that's "almost" done...& don't forget to pick up a white, buttercream birthday cake with white frosting, adorned with yellow & pink roses!
It goes nice with tea!
