Wearing Winter White......

Well, it is not my cup of tea.. It is about 10 degrees outside right now and it seems like old man winter has really arrived..

We have been fortunate this fall and winter since it is just now coming around actually.

The wind is blowing and howling and the snow is accumulating ..

A great evening to cuddle up with a blanket, make it two blankets, :o) and a good book and throw in a cup of decaf coffee or tea.. and some cookies !

I took the above photo this afternoon during a snow squall from inside the house !

Below are a couple photos of my new offerings on TDIPT Mercantile. Click the journal photo on the sidebar to take a peek at them.

Lots of pages in the journal that you can write on, etc. Showing is one of the recipes I printed on coffee dyed aged paper. Tea cakes were and are popular down south. It is like a sugar cookie. Behind the tea cake recipe is a recipe for Wash Day Soup.. an old family recipe.

I love the pumpkin colored shutters that the Journal and Pocket Sets are hanging on. I found the shutters in October while antiquing with my sister outside of Pittsburgh.

What is on your list of things to do and accomplish this year ? First on my list is to get rid of a bunch of old old magazines I have been hanging on to forever. I have already gotten rid of some of them.. They are pushing me out of the house ! I have Country Living magazines and Country Home magazines from way back in the 80's.

Hoping to lose a couple pounds, too !



  1. You are right the winter man has come. Here in Hopkinton, Mass,is very cold.
    We have our fire going and after I look at a few blog I am going to make a hot chocolate and curl up with my hubby and read a good book!

    Prim Blessings and stay warm,

  2. oh I love all of those old country living magazines from the 80's..they are way better then actually got to see its just ad after ad and maybe 2 houses..I love your items..and too love your shutters..hope you are staying nice and toasty,;)

  3. Snow is pretty in December, not so in January. I checked out TDIPT, love your journals and pocket hangers, Civil War Era, so special!!
    This year... craft more, love your bonnets, purchased a bonnet pattern last year, now have to sew some. De-clutter (big time)... simple is better. Try not to get lost in the 1800's, however will have to do at least one renactment.
    Just finished watching "Sarah Plain and Tall" series again, sure love those 1912 fashions!
    Hugs back to ya, Linda
