Winter blahs and a few pretty things.........

Urrrrrggggggg.. Winter is back in full force here in Minnesota. It started snowing around Noon today and they are predicting up to 8 inches of the fresh white stuff by midnight tonight. Is winter never going to end?

It’s a good I worked from home today and didn’t have to be out driving on the messy roads. That is never something I look forward to. I only took a short walk out to the central mailbox station in our culd-e-sac and nearly slipped and fell on a patch of ice that was hidden beneath a layer of snow. Thank goodness I was able to catch my balance. Sure would have been embarrassing to fall and land on my rear out in the middle of the road. What a funny sight that would have been…. LOL.

To make up for the dreary weather, I had to show off a few pretty things. One is new and the other is old. The new is this darling little lamb baby planter that I found in an antique store a few weeks ago. I just love the sweet look on its face and the soft shades of pink and blue.

The old is this pretty floral vase that has my favorite colors of pink, blue, yellow and green. It so reminds me of the spring I am longing for.


Seeing these pretty things everyday always puts a smile on my face, even when the winter blues having me feeling down.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week and that you have fun plans for the upcoming weekend. Tomorrow is payday for me, so that means I might have to visit an antique store or two over the weekend to see if I can dig up some pretty new treasures.

Take care and come back soon………..

OOOOh! I love that baby lambie planter! So cute! ☺

It's 66 here today, Kim but it's supposed to snow tomorrow! I'm thankful for the little breaks we get.

My face is all numb with a sinus infection but I decided to "get out" and visit anyway. I might not remember what I write though! Ha-ha!
