I think Winter has finally arrived here in SC!

"Sitting Fox" - original fabric on wood - in my shop now http://http//www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18964380
(I can't figure out how to make a link just one word that you click on to the link- help anyone)

I would love like 2 or 3 really fun snowy days like this. I know they are getting blasted with a winter white out up north but we just got out the 70's. I am not so much complaining but it is hard to celebrate winter when the weather is like early Fall. So bring on some snow fall...Please!
This was the other day while playing outside. London loves this play house we have for him. Chalk is a must anytime we are playing in the yard. Early on in the day it was in the high 60's then it cooled off a little (enough for a light jacket). But by 6:00pm it was COLD...so we made fire and ate steak and corn on the cob for dinner with LOTS of red wine.
London and Finn playing at Finn's "Cookies and PJ's" party yesterday morning.

London sporting his Santa hat.

And of course Happy Holidays to all from the Mitchells. We are ready for Scott to have a 4 day weekend and of course we have London's B-day party on Sunday (the big 2 years). We are making him a star cake (no where near as fabulous as my cousins castle cake...she is good).
The only bummer about the weather it was too cold to take London Christmas caroling last night. Actually I am not even sure if they went b/c it was so cold out.
Drink some Eggnog.
Eat some cookies.
Love your friends and family.

Stock Piled

London enjoying my 32nd Birthday present with Dessa- hee hee
My shop is so full with originals and archival prints I have tried to sloooow down lately making new things. This season has been considerbly slower this year than last - but with the economy I am trying not to take it personal- ha ha I think many of us are just trying to pay our bills and there is not much left for the fun stuff. Of course I am still making some new pieces as ideas and images come to me but I am just enjoying my time with London and not feeling the pressure to stock pile my virtual shelves (b/c they are already stock piled with 348 items).

2 new pieces

"Lean Just a Little" - Original Fabric on Wood art - in the shop now

"The Wooden Girl who Longed for More" - Original fabric on wood art - in the shop also

Scott and I in Key West - sitting on the curb watching the Christmas parade

Scott and I enjoying the Sunset after Caroline and Ciaran's wedding..ahhhh
We just got back from our first vacation in over a year. One of my very good (and oldest friend) got married in the Fl. Keys. We are talking amazing amazing wedding. She did such a great job and everything seemed to go down flawlessly. I am missing the warm Fl Keys already but I am super happy to be back home with my little guy. Don't worry he had a blast with Granny and Grandaddy. He didn't cry once until we got home and he realized we had been gone. ha ha
Christmas is coming and I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season...enjoy your families and of course some lowfat eggnog (I know I will be)!
