Winter Good Reads

Happy Holidays Fam! Welcome to the blog today …I’m glad you landed here in my little corner.

Happy Friday!  It’s been a sweet short week for me here, and I’m thankful for it.  A work project was canned (which is good news), I’ve started my shopping (even though I only have 3 people to shop for), and my decorations are out.

I honestly don’t need anything (but who am I kidding).  I really don’t have any Holiday art, so I’m thinking of making something and downloading a cheap print from Etsy to frame.  Flanked by two pillar candles, and some live greenery will be all I need for my fireplace.  I will also probably make a beaded garland …we will see.

Winter Reading

After the holidays blow over it’s time to cozy up to good book.  I’m partial to mystery, thrillers, and horror although I do want to read Will as I hear it’s really good. Sounds like somthing I’m gifting myself for Christmas along with two bedside lamps and some boots. (LOL)

The Maid: A Novel by Nita Prose (Jan 4)
