Two gift ideas and a vestibule

Nope, I will not cooperate. I will NOT smile for the camera. I won't even show my face.  Hiding behind this awesome, awesome classic book, The Hockey Sweater by Roch Carrier, about a boy and his loyalty to the Montreal Canadiens. We are off to a Christmas party and the Sens vs Canadiens game on Saturday.

HA. Persistence prevails. I got you AND a smile!

Crocheted Sock Monkey hat from ETSY. We bought the hat a month ago and it's sweet & chunky. Lucy loves to wear it. It seems the store owner is out of stock right now ... but there are plenty of inspiring things on ETSY ... I have found many and bought several gifts over the past few weeks and am anxiously awaiting their arrival.

And, hopefully, the vestibule work will begin today.

I wont get into the estimate and then the discussions concerning the estimate. It has left me with an ill feeling about the whole thing but I decided last night that I will move forward with this job regardless. AND I will be sure to use this experience in my favour, when I am ready to start the kitchen in a few months.

Some sweetness "I-found-a-chocolate-and-put-the-whole-thing-in-my-mouth" look

Who me, innocent.


  1. Love that book! Are you a Sens or a Habs fan? I grew up a Habs fan, but my family all defected to the Sens when they came into being.

  2. Sens. Mostly because I probably wasn't a fan before Sens. Although I do fondly remember the greats...Guy Lafleur, Ken Dryden...Rocket Richard.
