{FASHION} CHIC PICKS, DISCOUNT PRICES! | gifts for the ladies | Holiday sales mean wedding gold!

So, as you know, we were snowed in for the better part of yesterday.  Apparently, at certain points in the blizzard, we even had “thunder snow” – so, heh, I mean clearly, this was a serious storm.  What’s thunder snow?  I have NFI.  But it sounds outrageous, and I officially call dibs on it, should [...]

Crocheted fingerless gloves.  Ohhhh yeeeaaaahhh.
