I can honestly say I have never seen pink mushrooms before. Very cool!

Same old stuff today. I will get out for a bit since I have to pick up some meds for Lady at the vets. I'm hoping to that some paperwork from NCDMV comes today so I can finally get my car properly licensed. NC has a crazy long waiting period for certain things and with the holidays thrown in the mix it is worse than normal. My temporary plate is going to expire soon and it makes me a bit nervous to drive.

Haven't been around too much lately. Sad to see Monika close up shop here but I get it. I have some parts made for a necklace on my work table, but just am not feeling it yet. My creativity seems to be at a stand still. May be time to hang up the jewelry thing.

Still battling this darn cold, but it finally seems to be getting better. Of course it doesn't help when you have to go out and shovel snow, walk the dogs, etc. But since Terry is in NC working on the old place, it's me and the girls. The snow has stopped for now and the temps are dropping. Already feels like below zero outside and the wind gusts don't help.

Stay warm and dry everyone. And I hope that Kimberly, Andrew, and company are feeling better!!

Hurrah for sunshine! It's not warm but at least the sun is out today. Still fighting this miserable cold, so outside time is very limited. Doing chores and then resting.

I received my fabulous headband that I ordered from Sandi and I love it! It goes really well with my jacket and it's perfect for when I am out walking. Keeps my ears warm! Once I kick this cold I'll be able to use it a lot more.

Not much else going on right now. I need to let the dogs back in since I hear them barking up a storm in the back yard.

It has finally stopped raining here! 3 days straight and nearly 4". WE are not nearly as bad as some places though, so I am grateful for that. Now it's getting colder, but still not real bad. We did have an awesome visit over the weekend with our  family and especially our granddaughter. She had fun going up and down the stairs. She eventually warmed up to the dogs. Her first dog experience was not a good one so she tends to be apprehensive. She has learned that not all dogs are crazy.

I decided to close my ZoZo's Jewelry For Girlz shop. I just am not into it at all these days which is evident by the lack of new stuff , no sharing, posting, etc. I will keep my other shop open for the time being, but that may go to at some point. I still love making jewelry, but the whole online thing has changed so much. I am just not feeling it anymore, if you know what I mean. FB won't verify my jewelry page because I don't have a physical address resulting in little to no traffic there. I would think their list of business types would include online, but if it's there, I am not seeing it.  I think I am going to try and concentrate more on local stuff and see what happens.

We have no plans for New Years. Maybe we will go out for dinner. Too busy getting stuff together to stage our other house. Terry is going down in a couple weeks to do some work, meet with the new agent again and get the place ready. We have to wait 31 days before listing again so that it hits the market as a new listing. We are taking out all of the bamboo floors we laid there since no one seems to like them. We will reuse them in this house. The NC place will get carpet.

Off to take the girls out again. See ya later!

Yeah, he's pretty stoked about the whole thing.

Got the little bit of baking done that I had planned to do. Took the dogs out for 2 walks before the storm front hits us. It's already blustery, but very mild. It's like 62 degrees outside. NOT normal at all!

As promised, I am sharing a couple pics of the updated bathroom. Sometime in the future we will rip out the shower and replace that , tile the floor, and replace the sink and vanity. At least for now it's clean, brighter and usable. Seems a bit odd to say, but I love the new toilet we put in. We will put the same one in the other bathrooms too.

I hung a clock that Terry made in the front hall too. Looks really good and it's nice to be able to see the time.

Very part time for me, especially now.  We moved a few months back and pretty much my sole focus is updating the house we bought. I have made a couple of things, but have not listed anything new. I'm finding it hard to get motivated again. Jewelry is so super saturated and I am not sure the online thing is for me anymore.

We're seeing it on Christmas Day, which makes this a traditional Jewish Christmas.... movie & Chinese food!  LOL   

Well we're not Jewish, but that's our plan too. We are alone that day. Kids are coming on Saturday. Finished cleaning the bath upstairs so now to take some pictures.

It's a stellar day here today. Clouds have finally broken for a bit, sunshine and at least 50 degrees. I got the doggies to go for a longer walk which was nice.

We didn't know it, but this neighborhood has a Christmas decorating contest every year. Terry won the top prize of Best Overall Display. He got a $50 visa gift card. There is a sign out in front of the house which will stay till after New Years. He is pretty excited about winning since there was no plan with this house. He just got stuff out and out it where he thought it should go.

Well, time to assemble my baking supplies. Later guys!

Haven't found a ReStore here, but I'll keep looking. Yeah, the whole sick people out and about really bothers me. Good for me that I am not one to get sick often. I like Ms. Marty's comment though. Too funny!

I will do my baking this coming week. Any sooner and I will eat it all.  :-[

Sandi, I'm sorry you're sick, but hopefully it will be mostly if not all cleared up for Christmas. Our's have generally been quiet too, so having my son and co. down will be wonderful! I do hope you have a great visit!

We are working on the bathroom upstairs to make it more usable. Took the old shower door off since it didn't close right. I'll just put up a curtain for now. We have a remnant piece of vinyl flooring to cover the awful brown stuff that is there now. I painted the walls. We also have a new toilet to install. Terry is running around trying to get e replacement fan. The one we had bought won't work in there, but we can use it in our bathroom. These little fixes will make that room much nicer. I'll share pictures when we finish.
Have a great weekend everyone!

I have heard that too.

Like many others here, I once had a shop on Etsy and did rather well. But their major shift to allow reselling, etc. left a very sour taste in my mouth. I don't even shop there anymore. I try to patronize shops here and in my local area.

Gorgeous! Love that color.

Thanks for sharing the link. I'd like to see a picture posted here though and I'm sure others would as well.
