Reminiscing …

For as long as I can remember I have always loved painting furniture.  Last year I decided to turn my hobby into a little business venture.  I call it my retirement fund :).

Yesterday was my daughter’s 21st birthday and I came across this photo that shows one of my early pieces.  I found this little bench that I painted, stenciled, and recovered for my office.  Dana’s little Pebbles hairdo is covering part of the stencil.  She had so much hair that we came up with this little “do” to keep it out of her face….poor baby.







A Long Awaited Snow Day…

After one of the warmest Winters I can remember in a long time, we had our first measurable snow fall yesterday.  Many were thinking the forecasters were wrong.  How could they possibly be calling for snow when we had enjoyed temps near 70 degrees on Saturday and drove around with our windows down?

The temperatures starting dropping rapidly yesterday morning and by mid morning, the snow flakes began falling.  Below are a few photos from our first real snow of the season.

Little Miss M. came by to stay with MiMi while her Mommy went grocery stopping before the storm.  We snuggled and watched cartoons.

View from my back deck this morning.  It was a heavy, wet snow, so it sticks to the trees, creating a beautiful scene out my backdoor this morning.

With temps rising into the upper 40’s and low 50’s today…the snow will be gone in just a few short hours so this morning, I am enjoying God’s beauty, but happy that Spring is just around the corner.

The little girl in me always comes out when it snows.  The excitement of planning a snow day at home, the appreciation of the beauty that blankets the trees and mountains that surround us, and the warm and comfy feeling of spending a day in my PJ’s. Yesterday may have been our only snow day this Winter…but it was just perfect.
