Ice Ice Baby!

Tonight we made plans to do some shopping & as we were headed out the front door, Jim told me that I needed to take some pictures of the ice on our trellis out front. I didn't even know that it looked like this (goes to show you how much I go outside in the winter! lol), so I ran to grab the camera to get some pictures of it before it got dark. We have our very own ice sculpture in our front yard :)
This weekend, there's an ice sculpture show in downtown Detroit & we're thinking about going to it.....Jim really wants to go & I wouldn't mind it, except for the fact that it is in downtown Detroit. I guess he's seen some pictures of it on the news & the sculptures are supposed to be huge. Maybe I'll change my mind by morning cause if we do go, it'll have to be tomorrow as it's only supposed to be in the teens for a high on Sunday! BRRRR!!!
Have you seen this cool metal tray at Target yet??? I read about it on 2 Peas & since Target was one of the stops we had to make tonight, I decided to see if they had any of them. Well, as you can see, somehow, it jumped into my shopping cart & came home with me :)
It's called a Steel Wire Dessert Holder & the best part.....it was only $14.99. I plan on putting it to use in my scraproom, once I find a place to put it, that is. I will be painting it a different color.....just not sure what color yet. Probably either black, pink or white to match most of the elements in my room. I thought about cream since I have 2 other wire baskets that color, but they don't really match the room, either, so I might as well paint them while I'm at it, too.....right? :) Now.....to decide what I'm going to store in it.....decisions, decisions. I thought about my rubber stamps, but I like the way I store them now. Maybe my acrylic stamps? Stamp pads? Queen & Co felt? Primas? ;)

Jim & I were playing around with the camera again tonight as I need some new pictures of us to scrap :) I also wanted some of him without his glasses on.
The picture above is for Lorrie :) She requested a picture of my new hairdo & well, here you go, girl. Like I said, I still have a LOT of curl left on the sides & back, but I have to use a curling iron on the top right now. I'll probably get a body perm in a few months to solve that problem, though.


2 Peas blog challenge: "What are you scrappin plans today?" I'm hoping to start working on some more projects for an upcoming event that Cindy & I are doing. I have a LOT of stuff to do & very little time to do it all in! I'll share the details once it gets closer.

I'm off to bed.....hope you have a fabulous weekend & stay warm!

Well, darn!!! I was just at Target yesterday and missed the wire rack! Looks like I need to go back! :) And beautiful ice pictures. Awesome!

I had that rack in my hands at Target on Thursday. I wanted it so bad. The color is perfect for my room but I kept telling myself that "I didn't have anymore room in there". So, I decided to spend my weekend organizing my room. If I find room for it, I will go back and if it's still there (there was only one left) I would get it because it's meant to be.

Those ice pictures are so cool. Great picture of you and Jim.

Cool tray, would love to get it, but don't know if at the moment I can justify it. Hmmm, maybe in a month it will be discounted. As always, enjoy reading your blog.

Your ice sculpture is lovely, begging to be scrapped.

Cute photo of your and your DH, like your curls too.

Pretty ice picture! :)

I thought about buying that basket at Target, too, but I don't really need it or have anything to put in it, so I put it back. I sure do like it, though. I keep my eye out for one I love at little antique stores, so I may end up with a smaller one eventually.

Have a good Sunday!

I looked at that wire basket at Target too! I love it but I had just bought a two tier basket tree that has deeper baskets and I don't have room for both of them.

Love the pic of the two of you!
