About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Cold, Blowing, snowing!!!!

Hi all!  I hope you had a nice New Year's Eve and and great New Year's Day.  We managed to stay up until 12:30 watching the Times Square activities.  New Year's Day we ate the pork and sauerkraut.  Today we took the Christmas decorations down, took a nap (hubby and I) and just sat around reading.  I have frozen homemade lasagna heating up for dinner.  I straightened up my craft room so I could get that Jane Harris sampler ready to stitch.

I took these pictures so I could send them to my family in Tennessee and Mississippi.

 This is a vew across the street from us.

 I was trying to capture the blowing snow in this picture.  This is to the south east of us.

This is our front porch.  Of course we didn't put the snowman away just yet.  And I have colored lights on my Christmas tree that will need to come off but it might be another week before we do that.

 This is an adorable Christmas tree and balls that my friend from Manteo North Carolina made for me.  They are made with styrofoam balls and jute.  The "star" is a small starfish glued onto a pin and stuck in the tree.  I LOVE it!
This is a little bit closer view of the tree. 
Hope you're all doing well and staying warm and safe!
Thanks for dropping in!

  1. Hi Char, we have lots of snow here in New Brunswick and it's very cold.
    I had a beautiful Christmas but a nice quite New Year Eve and some of my visitors just left on Wednesday morning and my other daughter is leaving on Monday. The Christmas decor has been put away except the stair garland and one snowman.

    Happy Weekend.
