Happy snowy Sunday from my cottage to yours. It’s Sunday and that means today is the day I share my Mitten Moments with you!
My day started with a very slippery ride to church and an amazing lunch spent with Big Al, our kids and grands. There’s nothing I enjoy more than being with my family!

My Personal Mitten Moments
Most of you who follow along know I’ve had some wrist surgeries and alot of therapy over the last year. I’m happy to report that I am finally almost a 100%! This means I can sew and crochet again. Both of which I started this past week. I feel so liberated!!!
By the way, did you know I make blankets for a cause? You can check out all about it in my post The Journey.

Do you enjoy a good book? If so, what are you currently reading? I’d love to hear about it and if you have any suggestions, that would be great too! I’m getting ready to start Verity by Colleen Hoover. I’ve seen her books popping up everywhere and decided it’s time to try one. I’ll keep you posted on how I like it.
In case you’re looking for something new to read, here’s a list of books on my to read list:
The Woman in the Attic – Emily Hepditch
The Hotel Nantucket – Elin Hilderbrand
Big Al and I started watching 1883 on Paramount Plus, earlier this week. Have you seen it? Give me any kind of period drama and I’m usually on board!

This week on Instagram and Facebook stories, I started sharing Motivation Monday and Wednesday’s Word. Each week on Monday and Wednesday, I’ll post some encouraging words to help get you through the week. I have some friends who occassionally post uplifting words and it’s a supportive little pick-me-up! I hope you enjoy my new weekly additions.
Did you get to see my dollhouse post? This week, I shared How To Make An Old Dollhouse New – Part 2. What a joy to work on it over the last two months. Honestly, this project was a labor of love. Big Al did so much of the work. I couldn’t have done it without him!
A Few Of My Favorite Moments
I love avocado! Literally love it. When I saw this recipe from CoCo at The Crowned Goat, I knew I had to make it! CoCo shared a Delicious Open-Faced Breakfast Sandwich, with avocado!
C’mon on friends…how yummy does this look?!
My friend, Rachel from The Ponds Farmhouse is so very creative. This week, she shared How To Make Paper Flowers With Book Pages. In the photo below, she used them in her tablesetting, adding her guests name to each one.
Aren’t they so unique and elegant? I’m thinking of making them for my next book club gathering! The perfect touch for my book club, right?
Gallery walls are currently a hot decor item! You can’t open a magazine without seeing them. I’ve recently been working on putting one together, as well. My good buddy, Kelly from The Tattered Pew shared Easy to Do Gallery Wall Ideas, this week.

Next up, is Wendy from WM Design House. She made the cutest wreath out of pinecones! You can see how she did it in her post How To Make A Pink Heart Pinecone Wreath.

I can’t wait to read your book suggestions. I’m always looking for a good book. I’m so glad you wrist has healed and you’re almost back to normal. Surgery can have such a tole on us. Thank you for sharing my paper roses place cards. You are so sweet.
You are so welcome, Rachel! I hope you enjoy the book suggestions. Thanks for your kind words!💛
Kim, I am glad to hear that your wrist is 100% better. I know you are itching to get back to doing your quilts. I love that you have snow. We still have not had any snow. Only that one day of a few flurries before Christmas. It’s been a warm January. Love that you are doing Motivations Mondays and Wednesdays Words. I look forward to reading it. That book Woman In The Attic sounds interesting. I have not bought any new books lately. Just reading some gardening books that I had on hand.
Thanks friend! You’re probably like me. You have a ton of books that it’s hard to get through them all! Hope you get some snow soon!
I’ve heard the Hotel Nantucket is really good. I have it but haven’t read it yet. Thanks for sharing Kim and glad your Had’s getting better Ive been there🥴
Thanks Ann! When I finish the book, I’ll let you know how I liked it!
Catching up after taking some time to celebrate my birthday but I didn’t want the week to go by without saying thank you for sharing my breakfast sandwich recipe.

Off to check out your fabulous links. Big hugs and thank yous, CoCo
