baby it's cold outside...

That is what my husband said as he left to go to work this morning.  Well, maybe not so nicely at 6 am, I took the liberty of changing his words a bit!  I have some errands to run today but I would much rather stay home...
And sit in my big comfy white chair all wrapped up in my new chenille throw from Pottery Barn...
I finally used the gift certificate I won over at Cottage on Rosewood (thanks Ginger!).  The weather people keep mentioning the "s" word ~ snow.  I saw a few flakes yesterday but really no big snow fall in sight.  I would love to see a snowman or two around the holidays but I guess these will have to do for now...
I bought this one after Christmas last year.  His hat is dented and needed to be glued back on...

The crepe paper ruffle needs to be fixed at the bottom too.  My winter frolic snowman I picked up at Marshalls this year...
I think I see another collection forming!  Oh and did you spy that cute little jar...

I also finally used my gift certificate to Anthropologie I won from A Beach Cottage (thanks Sarah!).  It was my first visit to the store and I loved it!!  I picked this jar for the graphics and the color.  It is a candle and smells like angel food cake!  I am going to be giving my kitchen a mini makeover after the holidays and thought this would fit in my vision perfectly.  As I said I have some running around to do this morning.  My first stop is the shop so I can tidy up, add some new things and bring home a few book bundles so I can pretty them up them with my new french script stamp...
Your welcome has been (how lucky that you dropped in) so nice and warm...I simply must go (but baby it's cold outside)!

You know where I'll be later, all comfy and cozy visiting Kathleen and all her guests for White Wednesday!

I adore your vintage snowman, and aren't those candles from Anthropologie cute, and they smell great too. I bought them also.

Your chenille throw looks gorgeous and so comfy too! We're cooling down here which makes me happy because it feels more festive. My sister, who lives in Canada, emailed me this morning and said it was MINUS 17 celcius there which is equivalent to about 3 degree's!!!

Stay warm!!!

Susan said...

Lovely whites, Sandi! Glad to see your snowman is on the mend. Mine is surviving curious little hands...
Can you believe 16 degrees this a.m.? I'll try to check out your store someday when the weather's warmer. I'm on the North Shore, but will let you know when I venture south. Stay warm!

Hi, Sandi! I love your new throw. I would not have left the house, especially why there was still coffee in the pot. Those snowmen are adorable. Loving that stamp too!

Didn't PB have the most delicious holiday items this year? Your throw is just scrumptious and I love your snowmen too :)

It is freezing here and I have no gumption to do a dang thing. I agree- we should all get on a comfy couch, cover up with a fun throw and then just blog surf all day.
