what a difference a day makes...

Did anyone else happen to experience the magic act that occurred 
on the East Coast this past weekend???  
The first 2 pictures were taken on Christmas Day...

and the last 2 photos were taken the day after Christmas.  
Snow today, gone tomorrow.

A half day of rain completely melted away the two feet of snow 
that we accumulated the week prior.  
Was I the only one amazed by this???

*to be completely honest, I was pretty excited.  
I like the snow A LOT, 
but after awhile it just turns into a dirty muddy mess.*

It's official, our little snow storm in Baltimore has now turned into a full fledged blizzard.
I can't remember the last time I've seen this much snow.
Last time I measured the snow was roughly 11 or 12 inches deep and it is predicted that we may see an additional 8-10 by tomorrow morning.

Work was canceled today and I know my boss is at home shaking in his boots.
Having to close the Saturday before Christmas is a huge deal in the jewelry world.
(or in any retail business I would suppose.)
But, there really is NO competing with Mother Nature; I'm pretty sure she will always win.

These are the days I wish my studio was in my home.
I could be getting SO much done today.
Oh well, I guess it is nice to sip some tea and relax with some old movies.
(right now I'm watching The Holiday, you can't beat snow + Jude Law).

my heart melts...

Can you think of anything more adorable?
I'm starting to think that I may need one of these little rascals.
