WINTERLAND

Melody Club ‘winterland’

Woke up to 6″ or so of snow this morning. We’re not accustomed to snow here in TX, so it’s too unsafe to drive anywhere. I walked accross the street buy some candles and Mexican pasteries, and have otherwise spent the day sewing and watching movies at home. Kind’ve a pain. It sure is a pretty sight though, eh?

Here are my ‘winter gloves’ – 40s fishnet crochet w/ the tops snipped off. Paired with my favorite ring from Buffalo Exchange. He has green rhinestone eyes but one eye fell out, so I named him One Eyed Jack. I suppose I could buy him a new eye, but I kinda like him this way. He has character.
