We're on our fourth or fifth day in a row of snow and I'm beginning to feel a bit like we're living in a snowglobe. At least today's snow was the pretty kind that only sticks to tree branches and your hair and not the kind that piles up on the streets and sidewalks. I'm trying my hardest to revel in the beauty of the snow covered branches and quiet streets rather than dream of warm days and daffodils poking their heads through the dirt.

I wanted to show you more of this dress... it has really cute deep cut sides and a hem that's longer in back than in front! But, my plans of taking off my coat and double cardigans for pictures were thwarted by the freezing temperatures. It's one of those dresses that will be perfect for spring, so I'm sure you'll be seeing it again!

Thanks so much for all of your comments on my sewing post. I'm super excited that I was able to finish my first project with such great results and I'm already looking through my pile of old patterns to pick my next project... another dress I think!

I love the colors in all of the pics...especially your hair color against the darker color palate of your outfit. :)
