A new set of wheels, snow cream and a shop sale!

My husband teased me a week before Christmas, telling me he bought me a new set of wheels.  He joked that it could either be a Mercedes or he even suggested that Little Debbie Pecan Spinwheels could fit into the category of 'wheels', so I need to think about all that!
He went on like this with all sorts of taunting for about a week, and then on Christmas morning, I found this in the living room
Isn't it great!  I've been complaining about my old bike and how old it really is (at least 15 years old) and how I really wanted a beach cruiser for when we take our camping trips to Myrtle Beach.
It has some nice detailing - pink of course!  I finally got to take it for a test drive over the weekend and it sure is a smooth ride!
He even bought me a rearview mirror and dingy bell so I can see where I've been and alert those ahead of me that I'm a-coming'!!  Here's a few other things I found stuffed in my stocking.
Can't wait for this year's first beach trip now!
Frankie came to visit for Christmas and I think he had a good time.
I made him a cozy bed for when he stays outside at Mom's house.
Not sure yet if he likes it but I think once he gets back out in the cold, he's start liking it a lot!!
We missed a white Christmas by just a few hours, but I didn't complain!  Better late than never!
The snow was beautiful and we were able to get some fresh stuff to make snow cream.

We took it to Gramma's to share with her and Johnnie Mae.



On another note, just wanted to let you know I'm having a destash sale in my etsy fabric shop.  
I tried my best to resist buying a bunch of new fabrics, but failed miserably.  Therefore, I'm forced to make room for the stuff that's incoming so PLEASE stop by and see if you want to transfer something from my stash to yours!!  :)  I've clearanced all my Sugar Snap fabrics along with some other novelty fabrics.
Here's a link to a free pattern download using Sugar Snap fabrics by Melissa Averinos.

If you want more than 3 yards, just convo me and I'll set up a listing because I can fit up to 8 yards in a flat rate envelope for a $5 shipping fee.
Ta-ta for now!!

The picture of your snowfall looks like it belongs on a postcard.
