A Few Of My Favorite "Little" Things

 It's Wednesday here at the Jersey Shore and the sun is out for the first time in days!

It's a little breezy out, my "Let It Snow" flag was not cooperating.

My front door sign says it all...
"Baby It's Cold Outside"

Mailbox with covering that matches my flag.

I am working on a September Hat for my Great-Nephew Kalmin.
It is a replacement for one I had already made for him.
His dad was helping out with laundry,
he washed and dried it and now it is the size of a pea.
I hope he didn't get in too much trouble.
I knitted one of these hats for each of them, and it is a very easy knit.
This won't take very long to finish.

I usually buy my calendar at Longwood Gardens but since we have not been...

I bought this calendar at

I picked this calendar as it features one recipe each month,
and I thought it would be fun each month to make the featured recipe.

January's recipe is for BBQ sloppy Joes

We had enough sunshine on this day to enhance the solar lights,
this is how they look at night!

Your mail box cover/flag is cute. I love the snowman. I think you deck and solar lights look wonderful. Take care, enjoy your day!

I like that yarn for the hat and the solar lights are fantastic!

I love those solar lights. They add such a warm glow at night.

I love those lights! We have several at the ranch.
Talk aout calendars - they are hard to find. Louis Dean was wanting one so I could fill out what's going on. As in when we go to the ranch or when the quads come over and such. I get a monthly bee magazine and this time it had a catalog with it - AND a calendar! Perfect!

So neat you have the flag and mailbox matching. Oh my what a mistake with the hat, all that work but so nice of you to make another one.
Your calendar is neat, that is fun to have new recipes to try.
Your deck lights look terrific, now you just need to have some sunny days so your nights can be lighted :)

Ahh...serenity! Snow would be wonderful right about now. I have shrunk things in the dryer like that too. Not fun.

I love your solar lights; they are awesome. I'm happy you have some sun. We tend to have storms around us and some rain and a little snow. really need the moisture here.
I love your flag, your door sign and mail box covering; so cute. I'd love to learn how to knit a hat. I love it!
Blessings and hugs!
