Well, the Arctic Cold Front that was promised to us has arrived!! The blustery winds are here, the skies are filled with moisture [but no snow, I hope] all a powdery gray drabness above me...and the wind chill is probably close to 40 right now. There is a predicted freeze warning in effect and will remain for the early morning hours around here for the next three days. Highs in temps are only going to reach mid 40s today and a slow warming trend. But, come the weekend, it'll be back to normal and mid 60s low 70s. Ahhhhhhhhhh, I live for the weekend.

  2. wow cute earrings :)
    thanks for visiting my entry

  3. this is an interesting pair of earrings. yes, i remember that scene in the movie.:p

  4. those are earrings? they're beautiful!!!

    i think you need to put on a pot of soup, keep the hot chocolate close by, grab a good book, then snuggle into a couch near a heater and wait it out... now, bring on the weekend!

  5. nice nice earings!..I love earrings too..

  6. Great earrings, but I doubt they would help me to stop a man with one single look. It has something to do about age and general looks.
    I envy you the warm weather.

  7. Stay warm my friend! Love the earrings...

  8. It's warming up here = instead of zero, it's 18 degrees here!
    Those earrings are so cute!

  9. Thanks for commenting on my entry. It's a lovely geisya earrings. Temperature around 40s is not bad at all based on on standard during winter in Japan. I actually envy you to live in "paradise".
    Thanks for sharing.

    Talking about the Arctic cold front, my sister-in-law is due to marry her American fiance on Friday and he was stuck in Atlanta until this morning! Praise God he got on a flight and so there WILL be a wedding WITH the groom! :) We were worried for a moment there. He arrives in South Africa tonight! YEHA!

    Arctic cold front and highs in the 40s just don't sound right in the same sentence.
    We have actually been comfortable in the single digits without wind. I know that won't last.
    Beautiful earrings. I have never seen any like them.

  18. brrrr, it's so cold EVERYwhere, it seems. We have yet to have our first real snow here in West Texas...had one little dusting.

    I LOVE those adorable earrings. So cute. It's been forever since I've had a new pair. I need to go earring shopping. I am bad to get one pair and stick to them.

    That area rug you saw in my post was one of my biggest bargains. I bought it from a friend at her yard sale for $25. and saw it in a catalog for $600. It is in perfect condition, huge at 12x14 and in my favorite shade of French blues. I just LUV finding bargains like that. :))
    Stay warm, sweet friend.
    xo bj

  19. We sure did the cold front here. We had 18 of snow and temps below zero. I will take a few days of your

    Lovely earrings! I like that quote. Never read the book before, I should probably look for it. Keep safe and warm.

    Paz ;-)

  23. Following you from FMBT - it has been a cold winter... especially where it's not suppose to be cold... like So. Cal.. AND the Gulf Coast...
    Love to you

  24. Hi Anni. What delightful earrings. Noting your temps, it would seem that we are on the same weather track. It was near freezing last night and are now hovering at 45F. Alas, by Friday we will still be below 60. I miss my idea 70s.

  25. Oh you wuss, 40F is practically tropical!! LOL Just teasing you of course as I realize that you're not used to cool temps over there. I just checked and it's 16F here right now, going down to 0F by this evening. When I went out earlier I had to let the car run for a while to warm it up, haven't had to plug it in yet, though, this year so that's good! Oh and guess what....I never wear a hat or gloves when I go out! lol

    Love those earrings, they're so darling! Never seen any like those before. xoxo

  26. So cute! My daughter loves that store! You are warm! We hit 10 degrees last night, wind chill -8!!! If it going to be that cold in TX we need snow. I moved S from Chicago for warmth! In 18 years in Lubbock I've never seen it this COLD!! I may be coming your way :-)

  27. Wow I love those earrings!! Very beautiful! Be safe and keep warm! Thanks for the visit!

  28. those are the cutest earrings!
