What a rare treat I have today! Snow fell on Alabama…and ICE, so NO WORK TODAY…yippee!
William and I were ill prepared for the storm because we had been immersed in a home renovation project that took a while longer than expected. A newly renovated office (laminate floors, paint, new desk, etc.) and new floors in the kitchen. This is the first morning that we were able to sit at our new workspace, clad in pj’s and sipping coffee…the beautiful snowy view from the patio was like the reward for all the hard work. Although it is still far from being completed, at least the computers are back up.
I suggested to him…”You should have a snow day sale today”. He chuckled, and I think he dismissed me because he continued doing whatever it was he was doing. I reminded him that he never paid up on the bet that he lost wherein he stated LAST MONDAY, “This floor will be done TODAY.” He sheepishly looked at me again. “You owe me…AND you had ALL WEEK and still didn’t deliver what you promised on Monday”. So…long story a little shorter, my husband will be providing 15% off your purchase of tree branch and exotic wood buttons today . These buttons look so great on hand knit and crochet items. His shop can be found here: http://www.oruaka.etsy.com.

Thanks for the link to those beautiful buttons.

I'm a fan of your etsy items, and now I know the source of the buttons that so wonderfully complement them.

I never thought we'd have such a snow day in Georgia! Hardly ever does a car go by our busy street today.

I love both you and your husband's work. When I get to a point where I can order again, I'm going to get some of his buttons. I have one of your hat patterns to make next.

The color on the wall is gorgeous. You surely will enjoy working in that office!
