Laurie and Terri's posts about lace books and was thinking it is time for me to finally start one with all that lace I got from my MIL many months ago.
BTW, I did take one wrong turn and drove about 10 blocks in the wrong direction before I figured out I was going the wrong way but I did not decide driving down a boat ramp in to a river looked like a good idea. Why do people do that?? TWO MORE DAYS until I can get the new prescription!!

As always, I tend to use things I have accumulated in my junking and this time was no different. I painted petals on some vintage crepe paper and rough-cut them so the color showed a little around the edges. When I glued them to face circle I just scrunched the bases a bit so they would have some ruffle to them. Nothing new, I'm sure, but I like how it gives some dimension.
It sounds like Mother Nature is flexing her muscles on the Southeast next. If you are in that path you are in my thoughts and I will be happy to share my Toll House cookie recipe. Stay warm!

I can't take much more of this.

We have snow here in Portland. We don't get snow very often, or even every winter, so the city comes to a standstill when it happens. We have no equipment for clearing the roads and we don't even own snow shovels here so all we can do it sit and wait for it to melt. Temps have been in the low 20s and very windy so it feels even colder. Brr....The local news programs sure do love it!
It isn't looking good for junking tomorrow...!

I couldn't resist a little embellishing but I stayed away from very dimensional and dangly things for now. At least I learned that part of the lesson from last time - lol! That stuff can come later. Right now the book feels very stiff for working in. It will "break in" over time and hopefully not burst in the process.
It is good to have a new friend!
