Three million tiny flakes

I'm counting down to Christmas with my 12 favorite things; today is day three and it was a toss up between exterior illumination and snow, and then I thought about people who put giant inflatable creatures on their lawns and decided it would have to be snow.

So yes, I am dreaming of a White Christmas, and I always am. It's now, when the snow would be fresh and novel and fun that I would like it. However by the time March rolls around and we've had storm after storm and there are piles of slush and ice everywhere, I'll start to wonder what I though was so darn majestic about it in the first place.
But, for now, lets just focus on the positives; those unique flakes, that clean white blanket, the potential for work to get canceled (I can hope). Yes, I love snow.

This purple top hasn't seen much blog action in the years I've had it. I can't say why. It's a perfectly nice top. I like the color and the bit of detail on the neckline.

This outfit is also an example of getting stuck on a color, hence the purple cardigan and purple shoes. These little berry wedges also haven't seen as much wear as they should. So I'm glad this No Repeats Challenge is getting me to bring out more of my closet.

back to my darker hues

Can you believe there are only three days until Christmas? I still have cookies to bake, and a few presents to wrap (they were ordered on line and just arrived today).
