Readin', Sippin', Stayin' Warm

Photo challenge over at {PIN}spirational!  Books! I LOVE books!!!! It would be so great to be able to stay in where it's warm and read books, make cards, and maybe a sip or three of vino! It is disturbing to realize that I actually was happy to see the thermometer only one degree from double digits as I was headed to work. The high topped out at a whopping 15! Come on Spring!

These lovely gold edged books are the photo inspiration at {PIN}spirational.


I used one of my favorite Elizabeth O Dulemba digital images.  Sign up for her free Tuesday Coloring Book page!
