This year a bowl full of bright yellow lemons on a silver tray (thanks Mom S. for sending the lemons from her yard!) lifts my spirits in the post holiday lull, and they are refreshing to consider as I sip a hot cup of tea.
It is so much fun to re-decorate my blog as well!
The weather is "soft and warm" here today, as Laura noted this morning. The three of us agreed; the humidity in air does feel soft against one's skin.
We've already had a celebratory King's cake, and Laura and I took a long walk together as well.
As Bernie and Laura watch a game on TV, I found my thoughts turning to millinery once again.
I put "winter white hat" in as an ebay search, and this lovely creation popped up on my screen:
I can imagine wearing it with a long white woolen coat with mink cuffs and collars and a parade of rich velvet buttons marching down the front.
Sigh. Clearly such would be too warm for Houston winter wear.
But oh, if I lived where there was snow and ice...I think I'd make the coat and wear it with the dreamy hat everywhere I went on wintery days.
If you are interested in seeing it on ebay, click here. Judith promises she is about to make more hats. I hope she does. I'll be watching for them, and dreaming of snowy winters.
(UPDATE! She has posted three more hats...sheared beaver, mink, velvet....and more to come. Swoon. See them here!)
