Odds...Ends...and Treasure!

Let's begin with the odd! ;-)  In this remote corner of the planet, when it comes to odd we're talking about our recent weather!
We received over seven feet of snow in the month of December!  That is extremely unusual for us ... remember this is a temperate rainforest...it is not uncommon for us to not have snow for Christmas!
Yep...this is the "infamous" view from my front deck.  This reflects snowfall that occurred in less than a 24 hour time period!
It snowed nearly every day of the holiday break ...
...this remote corner of the planet looks beautiful under a heavy blanket of snow!

Now for the ends...
... another 007 project reveal.  Camo wristers for Brother DillyDally!  He put them to good use ... he and Mr. DillyDally spent everyday shoveling snow!
This photo was taken on December 30th ... his holiday break here at home ended that day.  Between the snowfall and the snowpack sliding off the roof, they were shoveling the side deck at least twice a day!  He is currently somewhere in Montana, seeking out a ski adventure.  I doubt they have as much snow as we have! ;-)

Now ... take a look at this treasure!
Isn't this sweet Dove of Peace beautiful?  She was handcrafted by and a gift from Roseann Kermes.  It was a part of the gift package I shared in an earlier post.  I immediately hung her on our Christmas Tree, where she was admired by all who visited!  When we took down the tree...I just couldn't part with her and pack her away.
I decided that she should accompany me while I'm dillydallying in the sewing room.  There she will be a constant reminder of all that she represents ... peace, creativity and friendship!
I'll end this post with a picture of the view taken today ... see the railing? ... only three inches of snow last night!  Mr. DillyDally gets a break in the snow removal department! ;-)

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally

  1. I think maybe you have our weather and we have yours...normally we'd be the ones with seven inches of snow, but instead, we had a brown Christmas!

    I wish I had gone to Rosebud's the Saturday they were making those ornaments. That Dove is too darn cute!
