Snow day!

Yesterday was the most amazing snow day ever! I haven't seen that much snow in the ten years I've lived in Christchurch. That's the view from my house (a wee bit up the Port Hills), and the view down Dyers Pass Road - the main road down the hill. The road was closed for most of the day, so I got to stay home from work (and still am now because the snow has turned to ice this morning).

Yesterday I did a bit of work, went for wee walks down the street and had fun throwing snowballs for the dogs, and then watching them get very confused about where they'd gone amongst the rest of the snow.

Mother Nature really is giving us the full deal this year. I'm definitely not complaining about this treat though!

Emma Makes... lovely things

... bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens,
brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favourite things

Yesterday I received that lovely package in the mail. I was super lucky to win a gorgeous Emma Makes bag from a giveaway on her Facebook page. I've been drooling over her bags for ages, and they're even better in real life - so pretty and really well made. If you'd like one of your own, you can get one from her Felt store or off her website.

Emma also makes sweet notebooks and the most awesome witty pencils (which I've blogged about before).

Thanks Emma!
Oh, by the way, you have an awesome name, tee he he.
