I've been following Paivi's blog for a while now, and I love her colorful creativity, especially her knit/crochet folks bag. She had a give a way on her blog, and I was lucky to get a set of her beautiful cards. Thanks!
Look at the pretty stamps, they are lovely too: I don't get to see stamps like that all that often anymore. It's mostly the print out from the post offices, unless one asks for nice stamps, they don't use them anymore. Stamps are little works of art, I'm not a collector, but I think it's sad, that they get thrown out so easily.
Here's the link to her etsy store, if you like those cards, or just want to have a look around.
As usual with a new puppy I'm home bound, especially with this weather right now. I'd rather my son does all the errands, because the roads are in bad shape with all the snow, and ice. Last night was horrible cold, with heavy winds. Maggie needed to poop, but screamed bloody murder, when carried outside, and held it in until this morning, which was just a little bit better. Later today she'll get her next round of shots, which means a trip to the Vet.
The boys can't be outside for more then three or four minutes, before they start lifting their paws because of the cold. Once again I'm thankful for our large basement, with carpet flooring. They play so nicely down here, and even to the point where their tongues are lolling, and they are exhausted, and sleep.
Well, it looks like more snow is coming. Glad to be inside, where it's warm, and the tea pot is steaming. Oh, by the way, since yesterday our kitchen is officially finished! Our contractor came and brought the missing pieces, installed them, replaced another 3 cabinet doors, which were damaged, and I hadn't even noticed. They didn't say anything, because they didn't want me to get more upset. He had to fix a few things, but now it's done! Took only half a year to finish it all.
