Garden decor.....

...for the new year. 

It's January, can you believe it?  Happy 2012 everyone! 
Over the holidays our family played Secret Santa at one of our gatherings and this is the gift I ended up with.  I love it!  It's a metal garden stake temperature gauge in the shape of a flower adorned with marbles.  It's perfect for the garden.  And as you can see the temperature is only in the 20s.  Brrrrrrr.  There was ice in the bird bath this morning.

So what's the best thing to do on a really cold bitter day?  Cozy up by the fire with a hot cup of coffee (or tea or hot chocolate) and enjoy reading your favorite magazine.   


Hope you're staying warm in your neck of the woods!

I love your new garden stake. It is the perfect gift for you. It has been chilly here in NC, but I think we're headed back into the 60s tomorrow. In the meantime, I'd say you definitely have the right idea for staying warm and cozy.

What a lovely gift, perfect for you. Very cold here too, but no snow.
Sitting by the fire knitting and reading, waiting for things to warm up.
Happy New Year Donna!

Ooh, Donna. I can see why you love that. It is fabulous.

Happy New Year to you, too. Yesterday was very cold. I certainly didn't want to get out of bed to go to work, but I was brave.

Donna, your day sounds perfect! I love nothing better than snuggling by the fire and reading a great magazine!
