Above is a (bad) closeup of the top of the vintage cover on our bed in the Christmas cabin. Unfortunately, the heat is not turned on in the cabin...I decided not to go out and reshoot these pictures! There is a slight wind going on, also - swirling the snow that is falling and beginning to accumulate on the ground.
This is the outfit I wore to church Sunday. A little black dress with a brown jacket and quite newly thrifted brown shoes. There IS a Christmas tree pin on the lapel, but the star of the outfit is the beautiful cashmere scarf (brown and turquoise) that I received in a blog giveaway a few weeks ago! It was warm; it is beautiful. I DID loosen it a bit and it looked better than in this photo. Everything I'm wearing was thrifted at one time or another, by the way.
