A perfect winter storm

 Our little temporary vacation home in the town   of Bisbee is experiencing its version of winter. Cold winds howled through the night and brought  rain and timid fits  of snow. Cal , I and of course Scooty and Peanut are  cozied in the for the day with a warm fire going which  we burned through the night. I have my little table of creativity going  on by the fire  and  I work a little then plop down on  the sofa  every now and then for  bit of reading. I am  finally finishing "Water for Elephants" ONE GOOD BOOK  . Cal has pasta planned for dinner.  I reckon it could not get any better then this !
 Remnants of the  summer hang in view of our living room window .
My palette seems even brighter as  the gray day swirls around my window views .

Can't wait to see your creations! One of the things on my "Goals for 2011" list is to take a class from you.
Stay warm!

I too have gravitated to a brighter palette search of some renewal I think! Your pallette is always gorgeous!
The fire looks very snuggly...toasty, I could use that in these 15 degree temps here!

It sounds like Bisbee was a lot like Phoenix...cold and windy! Glad you're enjoying your time down there.
We need to get together and grab lunch sometime...and Beth, too!
Happy {Creative} New Year to you! Hugs!
