You know the day is going to be good when you see such a beautiful sky in the morning! Gorgeous purple and orange across the morning sky ... yes I know the wee ryhme - 'red sky at night shepherds delight, red sky in the morning shepherds warning'. But the weather wasn't actually that bad today, yes it was chilly but no snow showers like yesterday :)
Woo Hoo for
* buying the new CK mag and getting last months free (which I hadn't bought)
* yummy mixed berry muffin for lunch
* yummy warm flannette sheets on the bed on a snowy frosty night
* the inspiration I am getting reading Ali Edwards Life Artist book
I was catching up on Janines blog and read the story about her glory box. This reminded me of a bit of Ali's book that I was reading about looking at the treasures you have around you and recording the story behind them. So here is my glory box ...
I inherited this when I was about 17 years old from my Grandma. My grandparents were having a tidy up and Mum said that they were not to chuck this out and so paid for them to freight in down from Auckland to Invercargill. My Grandfather trained as a cabinet maker before following a life path with the Salvation Army, and he made this for my Grandma for her 21st birthday, she is now 82 years old. Sadly my Grandad passed away about 11 years ago so it is so special to have this treasure he made in my home.
Hope you are all snuggled up nice and warm wherever you are
