Hot Topic

How’s your Monday?  Flipping freezing here. Winter finally decided to hit Phoenix; it’s like 50 degrees out there!  Don’t laugh, after surviving 100+ degree heat for months on end, this feels like the sub-sub-arctic. Plus there’s a slight breeze, so obviously it’s extra wretched out there. I am actually wearing four shirts right now.

So, I will be staying indoors today and enjoying this sweet gossip bench makeover from Haylie at Little Miss Fascinated.  I love the hot air balloon fabric so much.  I love anything hot.  Hot chocolate, hot air balloons, hot tubs, hot wheels, hot sauce, you name it.  I’m so cold!

    You would never survive the weather up north in Wisco then…lol. I was wearing sandals in 40degree temps last week, but with the snow that arrived yesterday, socks are now a necessity.

    I don’t think it ever even hit 100 degrees all summer where I live in Idaho. It is now 28 degrees with a wind chill, so it is in the teens. I bake when I get cold and sit under my electric blanket. I also tent a blanket around a heater to trap all the heat around me.

    It’s really sad that I live in a state where 50 degrees is considered warm of this time of year. Sigh.

    I’m in the Phoenix area, too, so I totally get it. I would NEVER survive in a colder state! Love the makeover, too…very cute fabric!

    I know how you feel about being cold in the 50’s. I live in south Louisiana, and when the temp drops below 60, and the humidity drops below 85, I feel freezing and dried out!

    I love the old telephone seats and have been dying to buy one but I’m just not sure where I would put it. Love the rustic paint and fabric print.

    I moved to Phoenix from PA where we “survived” for 3 years. I like it hot, but that was crazy. I looked at my son our first year there and told my son to lock me up if I ever bundled up like the people we saw going into the local grocery store. Seriously it was 50 something and everyone was wearing ski coats, scarves, gloves and hats. My son and I were wearing short sleeved shirts 🙂 Btw, cute table, now I wish I still had my telephone table..

    Alright weenies…it is negative 12 here and with the wind chill it is negative 35. Which meant I had to get out my medium weight winter coat and gloves. Still wore a tee-shirt. Cute bench too btw. 😉

    I love telephone tables! Reminds me of my Aunt Agnes’ house when I was a kid. Great job!!

    Wow, here in AK, 50* is a pretty standard summer day. In fact the 25* weather we’ve been having feels positively tropical after the weeks and weeks of below zero temps. Geography is funny.
