A Little Disappointed!

I'm just a little disappointed in snowstorm "Bob." I was looking forward to a wonderful snowstorm.  The kind of snowstorm where you can't go any where.  I had my day or days planned out to work on wonderful creations, page through some wonderful prim magazines and maybe watch a movie.  Sorry to say things didn't go as planned.
Yesterday when I left for work ~ the snow hadn't started falling yet.
This is what our yard looked like when I left.

When I was leaving work ~ the snow was falling!!!
If you can say ~ it was Beautiful!!!
The snow was those big sticky flakes that stick to everything!
I thought ~Tomorrow is going to be a Beautiful day to be snowed in!!!
I have so many project to work on!
and some wonderful reads to pass the time!
Country Home ~ Collector's Issue ~ LOVE IT!!!
Country Living the British Edition
and of course Prims!!!
Awesome Book!
Congratulations to Wanda ~ Gatherings & Kerri ~ Calico Rabbit for being featured in the magazine!!!

Something fun!!!

Things didn't work out as planned.
When I woke up this morning  ~ There was no beautiful snow ~ just a slushy mess.
I did work on some creations and when I get them completed I will show and tell!

My other disappointment is last weekend there was a indoor flea market being held in Appleton.
Yippee ~ I been dying to go to a flea market ~ one of my favorite things to do. There was going to be 75 booths!!!
I don't know about you but when I think flea market ~ I think old, wonderful collectibles, vintage, junk, time worn etc.   I was so disappointed  ~ there wasn't very many booths that had the things I described ~ maybe 4 the rest of the booths was like going to a rummage sale ~ Really???
There was one booth there that was all kids clothing piled in a heap and a bunch of toys ~ Seriously???
This is all I found.
 So Sweet!

I didn't buy the sewing box for the sewing box  ~ I bought it for it contents.
Love old wooden thread spools!

This wonderful wood carved box was in there too!

It's snowing again ~ started late this afternoon!

I'm going to go do a little stitch'in!
Until next time
Stay Safe & Warm my Friends!!!

P.S.  Happy Leap Day!!!

I feel so honored ~ I got an award "The Versatile Blogger" from Cindy aka: Old Time Pickers!!!
Thanks so much Cindy ~ My first Award!!!
If you love antiques and like to go to flea markets ~ stop by Cindy's blog!
She always has something to share and she has lots of eye candy too!

So now I have to choose 10 bloggers (suppose to be 15 ~ but I picked 10 to make it easier) to pass this award onto ~ notify them by leaving a comment on their blog.
"capable of doing a variety of things well!"

So here's the lucky ten that I selected:
  1. A Primitive Place Tammy

If I spot a spider I will totally freak out!

2). I Love to go to flea markets, antique shops and go barn pick'n.

3). I can't cook! Yep I can't cook, Love to get recipes from everyone in blogland ~ they all sound so yummy ~ but if my husband doesn't cook them I'll never know.  If you know that show Worst Cooks on the Food channel ~ I should be on there!!! LOL

Sweet Surprise & Lets Go For A Walk!

I got a sweet surprise from the Love of my Life!
Aren't they Beautiful???
Thanks so much Sweetheart!!!

It snowed again last night!
So Chewey and I went for a walk on the walking trail behind our house.
It's not a sunny day but it's not really cold out and the snow is still lightly falling!
Come on lets go for a walk!!!

This is the covered bridge that you can see from my backyard and you often see pictures of it in my posts.
This is the back of my house  ~ viewed from the walking trail.
Thanks for taking a walk with us ~ I hope you enjoyed it!!!

Happy Valentines Day!!!

On Valentine’s Day, we think of people
who have cheered and encouraged us,
who go out of their way
to be kind and caring,
who have enriched our lives
just by being themselves.
You are such a person.
I’m so happy you’re my friend
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Snowing in Wisconsin!

Yep ~ It's snowing here in Wisconsin!
I think Granny Trace felt sorry for us and sent the snow our way!!!
But why today????   Don't get me wrong I love it when it's snowing but not today.
Today I was going to meet up with a fellow blogger Katie ~ aka ~ All The Boys
and do a little prim shopping ~ oh I was so looking forward to this.
But the roads are just not good to travel on today.
not to mention the winds and the temperature is dropping rapidly ~ 17 degrees.
So I guess today would be a good day to make some of these!
Pattern by: Chestnut Junction
(Will be adding to my website soon!)

So today will be a day just to stay inside where it is warm and create!
I  have to do some finishes to some of these stitcheries I did.
 I also have some dolls to finish and work on some swap goodies.

Sorry Katie we couldn't meet today ~ hopefully soon!

What are you all working on today???

Until Next Time my Friends
Stay snug as a bug!
