What a wonderful sight to wake up to...an overcast day and a little rain. Who would have thought that I would love to see an overcast day. That statement has never been true until now. I can count on one hand the number of days we have had a little rain since summer began. We are in a real drought and I can't say as I remember a dryer summer since I moved to Michigan in 1974.
Anywho, I purchased a new snowman (I collect them, you know) from a fellow artisan and friend and want to share him with you. Now some of you may be familiar with Jody's work from SWEET BEAR CREEK WHIMS and some of you may not. If not, you are in for a very special treat!
Mr. Freezy is a special, one of a kind little guy with a personality all his own. Jody has amazing artistic talent with a brush as well as sculpting ability. She is a perfectionist in every sense of the word. The little ginger is a work of art in his own right. His little face is hand painted and his body is coated with a light dusting of cinnamon spice making him the perfect BFF to Mr. Freezy. Even the little buttons are handmade, heart shaped gingerbread cookies. What a guy!!!! He will be going to that "I can't put you away till Christmas" spot so I can enjoy looking at hi m. ha! Everyone needs a year-round Christmas corner in their house don't they...heehee!
Along with Mr. Freezy, I was pleasantly surprised to find several bars of Jody's special soap in scents that smell good enough to eat. I am currently using the Mango scent and it is divine. I love it!!! AND she also knows how I enjoy my morning cup of coffee and sent me this new mug. It is a rich, deep red with a sweet chicken pattern to it. (These were my sweet birthday prezzies.)
So, grab yourself a cup of coffee in your favorite mug and hop on over to Jody's blog and see what cool things she has to offer. She has a great website, an etsy shop, is a member of the PFATT Marketplace and also offers her patterns on Patternmart and The Prim Pattern all of which are linked to her blog making it easy for you to navigate and check out her work.

I am currently working on some new fall mouser goodes and hope to have them added to my etsy in just a few days. I will keep you posted. Thanks for stopping by.
OH GOOD....THE RAIN IS COMING DOWN AGAIN! WOO HOO!!!
