Look at Daughter's new custom skates!!! She wears red ones for coaching and when she went to have a fitting for a new pair noticed that Riedell can now put cut out designs in the leather. Nothing but a kitty would do for my cat crazy daughter. All she needs is a blade fitting and these cool kitties will be ready to go.
I also need to say thank you to Mere who sent me this adorable itty bitty monster that a friend of hers knit. I just love knitted stuffies. She looks very sweet nestled among the baubles and lights.
Speaking of the tree, The Mister declared it drab this year so we set out to Ikea yesterday with hopes to pick up a few new things to jazz it up. What I discovered was that Christmas is officially over at Ikea. I had to dig through the leftovers to find a few of these crocheted stars. I think the problem is that I usually tinsel the tree but this year I couldn't find any tinsel so it's not shimmering like it should. Oh, well....I'll be taking it down soon enough and the upside is that I won't be vacuuming up silver stuff all winter.
