Anyone that lives in or around Lancaster can attest to the fact that these photos were not taken today. As we speak, the city is blanketed with about 5 inches of snow. These were actually snapped a couple of weeks ago when I recreated the outfit I wore for our first Pennsylvania Christmas (we usually drive down to 'Bama for the holidays). When I saw the red barn I knew it would be the perfect place to stop and take photos for some seriously belated Christmas spirit. I didn't get around to posting them right away, then it sort of felt like the moment had passed. Today I'm cashing them in as my "get out of jail free" card since being sick and homebound for the last four days has left me with nothing much to blog about.
Thanks so much for all of your well wishes and the get-better-soon notes that have come my way. I'm feeling much more human today and I'm sure by tomorrow I'll be operating at 100%. Fingers crossed! Today I'm finally getting out of the house and to the post office (which I should have done on Monday!). My sincerest apologies to anyone who bought something from the Etsy shop and hasn't received their package yet! I promise they're going into the mail today.
Speaking of the Etsy shop, none of the pieces I had scheduled to add this week will be added... lots of pretty things from Smilin' Gal Vintage, another batch of coats and capes and more cozy sweaters. Look for them next week when things will get back to normal around here. It's funny, but I'm not yet ready for spring time clothes for myself, but I'm sort of starting to itch for spring time shop updates. I'll try to hold off for a few more weeks!
