under the weather...

With more snow yesterday I decided to make it a day to get some projects done.

I have been under the weather lately with a sinus infection and the antibiotics make me so tired.  I also have Vertigo which makes me not want to do anything.  I took my time and got a few things done but then the stomach bug hit me.  Shouldn't you only have to have one kind of sickness at a time...geesh!!

I was supposed to go to a shop meeting last night about a wonderful white event that we will be having in April.  I will get all the details when I work this weekend and share them with you soon. 

I also wanted to work on some Valentine vignettes around my nest.  This is how far I got...
Mercury Glass and Rust...a girl's best friend!
    
Since you were kind enough to listen to me complain about being under the weather here is a little peek into my den makeover...
I said just a little peek!

The only thing I know for sure about today is that there is more snow on the way ~ maybe another 10 inches!  So this came just in time...
Thank you Carole!

If you are looking for me today I will be in my favorite spot in my house...
 My big comfy white chair!

I am linking up with
Faded Charm for White Wednesday
and
A Beach Cottage for Good Life Wednesday
Have a wonderful day!

Sandi, don't worry. You are still ahead of me when it comes to decorating for Valentine's Day! Sinus infections are the worst, aren't they! I hope you are better today, and I hope you are enjoying your magazine. I have never heard of it before, but it looks great. Take care!

Sandi said...

Hi Sandi,
So sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. That vertigo is a killer isn't it? Praying you get better soon and stay that way!
LOVE your mercury glass heart and your *PEEK* at your room. My BFF said to inform everyone she is tired of *PEEKS* and wants to see a whole photo instead of a little corner. HA! She is so funny!!
Hugs coming your way !

Love your photos and can't wait until you are feeling better and can show us your den make over.
This winter just won't quit, will it? We have been snow covered for most of it. And so lbommin' cold, too.
I hope your big comfy chair makes you feel like a princess and that those bugs finally leave for good.

Feel better soon.
