Light for the Storm & News

I find myself longing to decorate outdoors, do you?
I l-o-v-e to decorate my French pine table
on the porch with all kinds of things...

Big bouquets of flowers and such

so I can see out of the house
and rest my eyes onto
a vignette I've set up to enjoy.

I even light candles out there to dream over
during this cold days.

We had a huge lightning & thunder storm
last night
I hear there are more
storms on their way.

The news reported winds
on the Golden Gate Bridge
at 75 mph!
And chances of an isolated tornado~


It was beautiful just a few moments ago

by the back of the house

But now the Sun
has gone to hide for a few days.

Better run out before it hits and fill up
the Eiffel Tower bird feeder once again.

So I'm off to hide a bit more myself .
I'm still
celebrating my birthday month...
waiting for that special day ;)

We're traveling Thursday ~ Sunday

Playing tourist in Wine Country
hope we don't get soaked...
if so, we'll make it an adventure!

Ooh... and the big news is
the winner of my petite giveaway...

The lovely
June at Laughing With Angels

What do you do to cheer yourself,
and what kind of decorating do you
do outside on these overcast/rainy days?

Happiness to you!

While I'm Away ~ Giveaway

While running down the stairwell today,
I had an idea
(it's alright, don't be scared, it's a good one)

It's my birthday month (yes month)
and I'm doing whatever I want (somewhat, that is ;)

I am so busy in stocking and creating for my website
Getting ready for spring... busy, busy, busy!

It's really fun being in the Maison
the month
of January
Just ask my husband!

I decided my blog should be having some fun
while I'm away~

Did you notice my new updated look?

Thanks to
