I’ve been a little under the weather this week, a bug I’ve been fighting off seems to have finally broken through and laid me out flat. Today I stayed home and slept all day, and after this post I will be going back to bed to sleep some more. We had a great Valentine’s Day at home, and at some point soon I will post about my February pie and apron. But not today, I need something a little easier.
And since I think “under the weather” is a very weird phrase, and it’s the middle of February and the weather here in NJ has been so mild that all of the snow is just about melted away, I remembered these snowman collages that I made with some of our special needs students at school.
We made these about a month ago, when we were knee-deep in snow days and bad weather. I’d forgotten all about them. And I have to admit, as much as I hate shoveling snow, it’s making me the tiniest bit sad to see all of the snow melting away already.
Last night I braved the extremely cold temperatures to meet up with Meredith at the Winter Antiques Show at the Armory. Everyone was so posh (I was still wearing my turtleneck and fur-lined boots from school) that I didn’t want to conspicuously walk around with my camera. So I took a few questionable shots with my phone instead.
I couldn’t get enough of this crib quilt, made circa 1915 in upstate NY. And if I’d had $9500 spare, it would have been mine. (more…)
