I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, cuddle with your loved ones, eats lots of your favorite foods and watch plenty of fun movies!!
I must confess that I have been in a bit of a funk lately. Feeling a bit down and uninspired. Perhaps it could be a combination of things. I am under a lot of stress at work and my husband was in a small car accident. And to make things worse, our main water line to the house had a leak and the entire line had to be replaced. Thankfully, my husband is fine but the water line was a major repair. All just too much for me to handle right now. And when I start to feel anxious and overwhelmed, I tend to shut down. I know that there are far more troubles in the world but it all all really got to me for some reason. This is very unusual for me. I am always the one with a positive attitude and the one that looks to make lemonade out of lemons.
I know full well that I have to pull myself out of this funk and creative paralysis so I decided to put my energy into resting and doing the things that I help me relax. Resting was at the top of my list however. I think I am mentally and physically exhausted. Sleeping a few extra hours has helped. And yesterday, my dear hubby even took me to New York for tea and to see the pretty Rockefeller tree. It was just the two of us and it was such a fun and special day. New York is truly magical during the holidays.
Feeling the need to create again, I decided to put this sweet vignette together. My inspiration came from the gorgeous old-fashioned cookies that I bought from the cutest old world candy shop in Philadelphia called Shane Confectionery. (I will post photos of this adorable shop in a future shop)
Enjoy the photos...
