Getting an inch of snow is like
winning 10 cents in the lottery.
~ Bill Watterson
Texas has four seasons: drought, flood, blizzard, and twister. The state is just so dang big we get all kinds of weather — sometimes all at once. Out in West Texas, the weather can be drier than the heart of a haystack. Panhandle thunderclouds bring real gully-washer toad-strangler rain storms. And as late as October it's hotter than a stolen tamale. But, whatever the weather is in Texas, if you don't like it, just wait a minute and it will change.
Take today's forecast for instance.
Seriously! From 77º Fahrenheit to 21º Fahrenheit in one day.
Oh, I hope is snows!
All the way up to Frosty's third button.
I'm previewing the new My Favorite Things Pure Innocence "Thanks So Much" stamp set. The set comes with a sweet little snowflake image. I heat embossed the snowflakes with fine, iridescent embossing powder and then treated Frosty and the snow drifts with Distress Stickles for good measure.
My Christmas tree ornament is a vintage fine. I love treasure hunting for fun craft embellishments.
I paid a little more than 27 cents – isn't this a treat? It's just like the ornaments Mom used to put on one of her miniature trees.
