Be Inspired - What's Keeping Me Warm This Winter, part II


As with part I (see below) these are my favourite old and new things to keep me warm this winter. Above - scary close up of me in my fave beanie, I got this when I shaved my head for charity in the middle of winter (not the best timing, but one of the best things I've ever done).


I bought this glittery beanie just this week in Target, for $14.99 but actually at the checkout it cost $11.99 thanks to the storewide sale.


This is a vintage knit hat that used to belong to my mum, she added all the ski resort tags to it, and I get a lot of great compliments when I wear this, I am currently looking for a pattern to make more of them in different colours etc.


This is my natual hot water bottle and the only fur I wear, my cat Roman. He loves to lie in the sun and is a good boy, bravely sitting outside on the grey days fluffed up hoping for some warmth, or else gives in and sleeps in the bed between the quilt and blanket.
Check out Part I below for shawls, coats, and boots, and don't forget to check out my Mother's Day carnival of posts between now and the big day!

Hello there, Starry. :D You really do like purple, don't you? Even Roman's collar is purple. LOL Roman is such a handsome boy - how old is he? :)

It has been such a long time for me. Miss you and fellow bloggers...

Roman will be 16 on the 1st of May, I am thinking chocolate cake for the family, and a special treat for him...

Hi Chez, nice to see you here, you will definitely want to keep snug and warm this winter, especially with the weight you have lost, you will definitely feel the cold.

At least your heart will be warmed by all the well wishes and support from your friends and family.
Here is a big soul kiss for you.... got it? It comes with all my love,
Starry

hey Mandy I thought of you the other day when walking through the mall and I saw, a 'Port Power Princess' tshirt at a novelty shop. You are the only person I know who barracks for them so of course you came to mind. Hmm that reminds me I meant to do an AFL Merchandise Gifts post before the season started.... whoops!
