Gloomy Weather Projects
The weather has been yucky here these past couple days. We've had rain, hail, snow, and ice. I'm trying to ignore the gloom. I've been tending to business, painting, making pretty little things, and going through my stash. I pulled out some of my vintage books, of which I have many. One of my earliest books is 175 years old. It's some sort of journal, but I have no idea what it says. It's in German. I know it's dated January 8th, and it belonged to someone named Anna.
