Cold Random

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Happy Tuesday, My Lovelies!  This week has been a busy one so far because last week I did practically nothing other than nursing a cold.  So not a whole lot has been going on around here other than school....

Here's a look at the (little bit) of doings going on around Chez Treleaven!

Finlay enjoying a nap in the sunshine.  He is overdue for a haircut, and his grooming appointment was cancelled last Friday due to the winter storm.

I started decorating for Valentine's Day yesterday.  More Valentine decor later!

I am so excited about Chaotic Goddesses' Book & A Cuppa Swap.  

I received my packaged from Jolene yesterday.  I know you are D*Y*I*N*G to know what she went me.  Come back tomorrow and find out!  ;P

I can't wait to share my prezzies from Jolene.  She really did a fantastic job!

Check out the latest from Red Dot:

If you're in Birmingham, you should stop by for the opening reception!

Here's a fun little video of some Valentine yummies from Terrain.  I wish we had a local Terrain shop, but I do enjoy shopping in their online store!

Question:  What's your favorite Valentine's Day candy?

Until next time...

  1. I hope you feel better soon. I like your prompt drawing/watercolor. Even though it is a David Bowie reference, it reminds me of Freda. xoxo Su

  2. Ricki Jill,
    I think Finlay looks adorable with his little shaggy fur! Love your journal entry painting. I have been listening to Bowies last CD - Black Star, the words "Look up, I'm in heaven" send chills down my spine, Enjoy your book and cuppa swap.

  3. Aw, Fin! You look freshly groomed compared to how Foz sulked into the groomer today...yikes!

    Love your usual!

  4. I love your China Girl journal page. So beautiful! That song brings back great memories. :-) I'm excited about the swap reveal too!!

  5. I love Louise's painting because of the boats and the lovely colors.

  6. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Fun valentines inspirations!!

  7. I love your random post RJ. And I adore the photos of darling Finlay. He has got to be the cutest dog ever!
    I hope that by the time I send this, you are feeling better my dear!
    hugs from here...
