Winter Is Coming!

It sure is, it's starting to get a bit chilly at night in this part of the world.

So are you a Game of Thrones fan? If you're not this whole post is going to mean absolutely nothing to you, including the Winter Is Coming title apologies for that.





Any way a couple of weeks ago my Mum gave me this pin holder, and it's awesome, the magnets inside are strong and once I throw my pins down they stay put. On the other hand it kind of looks like a very plain soap dish.



Anyway, I decided it needed a little something and given my love of all things GoT I went with a quote based Arya's sword "Needle".




DIY Delight or Disaster? Delight, it's a bit of fun and the boys think it's "cool". By the way they've only read the books, they have zero chance of being allowed to watch it until they're 18 and to be honest I would be really uncomfortable watching with them even if they were 30.

So are you a GoT fan?

  2. Roy watches Game of Thrones {he is really addicted to it!} but it's not my kinda thing ;-) I am with you on the Winter part though ! The gas heater was taken out of storage last week Thursday already and I can see the electric blanket to follow soon - pity I would have to remove my upper feather matress, but oh well, can't have it both ways !

  4. That is the perfect quote for your pin holder. Love it! And I agree the boys cannot watch it. My sister was thinking they were going to get rid of cable which would mean they would come to my house to watch it with us....ummmmm....I'm not even comfortable with that. AVERT YOUR EYES!!!

  7. How cool! I've never seen GoT, but I've heard of it. I think it's on a channel that we don't get. It's finally just starting to get warm here.

  12. I'm STILL behind on GoT (among other things). But so funny...love the reference. :) I swear, winter is STILL here. We've had a few nice days, but overall the weather in mid-America still bites.

  13. I've never watched/read Game of Thrones. But it sounds kind of nerdy like my usual stuff I like to watch/read. I read this post even though I don't know what game of thrones is- but I'm totally gonna find out and come back to this one!! Lol!

  14. Ha ha ha, stick them with the pointy end! Can you tell I'm a fan? This totally made my day. It's turned cold enough here again for wraiths to live comfortably in the yard. sigh
