Think Winter...and Submissions

Well, it's official...out here in Las Vegas we are in the middle of a heat wave. It's supposed to be 111 degrees (no, I didn't hit too many ones) in the city and 115 or so out on the lake. We were going to go out on the boat today, but now we're rethinking that decision.

Sure we can jump into the water when we get hot, but we've also discovered that it's a lot more fun to barbecue than to be barbecued. My suggestion for the day was to drive up to Mount Charleston (it's about the same distance away as the lake) where it's at least 20 degrees's either that, or stay inside.

Here's my doily for a little Christmas in July

Since it so hot outside we are going to think winter...A little bit of Christmas in July! I want to see your Red and Green etsy items...just post the link in the comments (I'll be looking at stuff from my blog first, and then from the forums. We'll all think snow for tomorrow and check back here for the Friday's Favorites!


  1. Hello! I have red and green knitted cup cozies in my shop:
    as well as a red scarf and a red neck scarflette.

  2. Great post! I'm trying to think winter, too, in the 90-something degree heat here in SC. I like the Christmas in July idea for a collection/treasury.

    I have a green version and a red version of my Twin Rivers Scarf up in my shop right now...


  3. Well it's been hot in Oklahoma too. We just have high humidity too.
