Winter Greys

Having an additional two days added on to my school's winter break due to the "polar vortex," I was able to finish packing up all of the holiday cheer (including six trees ranging from 2' to 8' tall). That was the first calamity day due to frigid cold. On the second day, I made some rustic place mats and napkins made from vintage washed wool and shirting that I had acquired at an auction last year.

I only had enough of the wool to do four mats but had some bark cloth (at least I think that's what it is) to make a couple coordinating ones.

I've also been experimenting with my little digital camera to try and "whiten" up my photos. These were taken using the "cool" effect, but I don't really care for them. I'll something different next time. I may end up getting a better camera in the summer.
I will probably grab some pine cones from some of our trees this weekend to put around the lonely "twig" pot.

This one is a little fuzzy, but I still like it. I replace the Christmas wreath with a bare grapevine wreath.

I guess we are going to eat with our fingers (they were invented before forks) as I seem to have forgotten about them.
