Did someone say snow???

Here on the Cumberland Plateau (in TN) the daily temperature has been in the low to mid 90s with a heat index of 105 - 110. It's been miserably hot for those without A/C or those that work outdoors, my husband being one of the latter. I know my husband is looking forward to cooler weather.

I have been thinking of cooler weather, too...
much cooler weather

and decided to make a snow angel for my Simply Primitives update.
My snow folk are usually shades of white, cream, and ivory as seen here.

This time I thought I'd make one with a bit of color for my prim friends. :)
This Early Coverlet Snow Angel is clothed in a hand made early coverlet robe that I have trimmed with frayed, fringed linen and antique mother of pearl buttons.

She will be available at Simply Primitives later tonight.
While there, be sure to visit all the other wonderful shops!


I suppose with cooler weather on my mind, I am thinking of blue.
The snow angel has a blue and cream coverlet robe,
and today I finished and listed (in my Etsy shop) a Scandinavian blue and winter white choker.
It is made using an upcycled vintage book spine and bamboo / rayon felt for the base fabric ~ a great eco-friendly item!

I'll be editing lots of photos over the next few days and will be back with the 127 Sale pics and some great flea market and thrift store finds next week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care and God bless,


  1. I was just thinking yesterday - so tired of this heat! I might start my yearly mantra a few months early "let it snow, let it snow, let it snow" But being in south georgia, hmmm what was that saying about a snowball in hades?

    Love the snowman - very cute!

  2. So sweet and it makes me feel cooler just looking at it. It's 103 here, 106 yesterday. Come on Fall!!

  3. Your snowman box is so wonderful Lana - just love him.
    I´m so looking forward to cooloer weather too.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
