My giveaway.......almost.....

Can you believe I'm stuck on 99 followers!!!!  When I hit 100 then I'll explain the rules of the giveaway or if I get to 400 posts first, we'll celebrate that.  I've been into making lampshades so decided on this for my prize.
The lamp and shade go together.  

I've been at home for 3 days now and it's been kind of nice.  Today is so cold that I can feel it when I stand at my windows.  Nothing is melting and the ice is staying on the streets.  It's the third day for Leola's to be closed.  Our public schools and colleges are all still closed.  It's supposed to warm a little over the weekend then more snow and frigid temps.  So much for the groundhog seeing it's shadow.  Oh, well, it is what it is and I figure God must have felt like we all needed to slow down and appreciate what we have.  I'm so grateful to have a nice warm house and plenty of food when there are so many suffering & doing without right now.  Also, I think it was so good for the public schools to be closed for a few days and maybe get rid of some of the germs.  Seems like everyone had sick kids at home.

Hope everyone stays warm and pass this on so we can get on with the giveaway.  Thanks!

Hey Jan, loved talking on the phone with you the other day. I love the lamp in your picture. So pretty. Wish I could melt all your snow with my warm thoughts of you Routh sisters. This is a good opportunity to do some baking and working on your fun crafts while you're stuck in the house. Kinda wish I could be with you sitting infront of your warm fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. We could watch old movies on TV and stay up all night then sleep half the day away!!
Hugs,
Barb
