pale and interesting...

It turned very cold yesterday afternoon so I hunkered down with a few gifts from Christmas...


My new fluffy white slippers and a book that has been on my wish list for a while was the perfect way to keep warm.  I am sure you have all seen "Pale & Interesting" before but just in case you haven't, I will give you a little peek...



There are knives with mother of pearl handles similar to these at the shop!  Should I or shouldn't I...




It is even colder this morning, so this White Wednesday you will probably find me doing more of the same today...

Well, I will curl up with this book again, after I exercise, clean the house, put a few hours in on a house project as well as a few hours working on "stuff" for my booth.
I don't just sit around all day!
Are you reading this Jim?  Hee Hee...


Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Those slippers sure look pale and interesting and WARM! It is freezing here too and I can't blame you for wanting to hunker down and keep cozy. I have not had a chance to see that book yet so thanks for the peek!

I am tackling my computer/craft room again today with the dining room and kitchen in a royal mess from stuff sitting all over. Hope to get it mostly done today. Oh my...not enough room for it all anymore. eek!!

Very cozy looking slippers. I'm not sure I'd ever take them off if I were you.

this book has been on my wish list for a while also. Looks like I would really like it. May have to move it up the list a little.

I haven't see this book before. Did you order it? It looks like a great sit down with and pour over book.

You enjoy these cold days with those fluffy white slippers. Sometimes it is so wonderful to just sit...especially after the busy holidays.

Victoria said...

Those are some wonderfully snuggly slippers you have there! I've heard about that book, thank you for the little peek:) I say definitely get the Mother of Pearl cutlery! I've been eyeing some on Etsy...gorgeous!

Happy WW!

Oh, there is nothing cozier than a pair of fluffy slippers & a good book. I've never heard of that book, I definitely will look it up. As for The mother of pearl handles. "YES" you should!!! :)
I'm a terrible influence Sandi. Just so you know.
Hugs Rosemary...xx

Susan said...

Oh, I love those slippers Sandi! You've got the right idea, here. :)
I had to chuckle, because I was doing the same thing yesterday afternoon (although my slippers aren't as cute). I got the same book for Christmas!
Isn't it great? Filled with inspiration for 2012. Oh, and yes you should get those knives. :)

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

Great idea! Im getting together my new books right now! I just sold a bunch of MOP knives just like those ~ love them simply displayed. I don't know if I can make it through another New England winter.......

Nothing better than sitting cozily with a good book, especially one where you just get to gaze at creamy, dream pictures. Yep, even on days where I find total "me" time there is always the reality of the 100 other tasks I've accomplished. Have a terrific Thursday! Tammy

thistlewoodfarm said...

Oh....I wish I were sitting by a fire with cozy slippers and that wonderful book....but instead, I have to take Christmas decorations down :(

Moi said...

I'm so happy we've found one another! I look forward to getting to know you! Yes, Pale & Interesting rocked my Christmas! I L-O-V-E it from cover to cover. Now all I need it to hook myself up with some luscious slippers! Hugs, Lisa

Thanks for sharing some of the pics from the book - still going to need to get my own though!

fiona anderson said...

I ALSO got this gorgeous book for Christmas, and I absolutely love it. And what's more, they have opened a shop in Rye, which is about an hour's drive away and I have been meaning to visit for ages. Rye is a picture-postcard village on a hill, with many an historic smuggler connection, and winding cobbled streets with beautiful cottages and shops.
I think I might go next week !!!

Bristol said...

I love that book and the slippers look so cozy~

red.neck chic said...

Oh... I'm hoping that you went to the shop and got the knives!!! LOVE those in the jar!!!

That's probably one of my favorite books... ever. Another fave is Holly Becker's "Decorate"... have you seen it?

I can usually be found with both of them in my lap. LOLOL

Stay warm!!!
