Danger Falling Ice & Snow

We had a bit of snow this past weekend.


Nothing the snow blower can't handle....


Okay, maybe it was a bit more than the snow blower could handle.  But the real problem was in the city.  The rain melted the snow and ice and it spent all day yesterday falling off rooftops.



The building with the steeple is the Old South Meeting House


The Charles River and Beacon Hill were foggy but pretty.


Sam Eagle's building was getting shoveled off {I think the guy was opening drains}.  I really wish you could see Sam from the street but he's at least 20 stories up.


Where you see the rainbow below, there are pallets dropped on the intersections so pedestrians can make it through the intersections without drowning.


We will see what today brings.  I will hopefully at least remember to wear my boots.

i heart trees

The weather lady is predicting a bit of snow for today and tomorrow which makes me happy because I get to work at home, near this tree {I should say "near" this tree since it's not exactly out the window}.

On My Desk: Herringbone and Geometrics

I thought I would start an occasional post about things "On My Desk".  Things I have been working on, things I am considering, and finishes I am hoarding because I want to find an appropriate place to use them.

The two finishes below literally sat on my desk for a couple of weeks keeping me company before they got the boot.  The geometric carpet is in the running for an elevator lobby, I'll know the verdict on it this week, but I really hope it's a yes.  The large orange herringbone was for a chair I would like to reupholster.  I have decided to go with the brown colorway {if I use it, it's a bit pricey so it's still just being considered} so you'll probably see it's buddy in a later post.



If only I could figure out how to photograph it well.
