We finally made it to the First day of Spring!!!

we are expecting another snow storm 
tomorrow and Thursday.
These pictures are of the last one 
that we had last Wednesday.  
This will be the fourth major snow storm 
that we have had this month!
I won't be gardening for a while yet! haha
In like a lion and it could be out like a lion,  too!  
We'll just have to wait and see!

For this storm,  we are expecting 8 to 12 inches.  
Mother Nature must be really upset this year!

I'm saying a little prayer that it's not too bad...

'Til next time,

Red Lion

I thought so...
just wasn't quite sure about it!
Love these flowers...
They are so beautiful...
once a year!

I wish it was more often!

I have been making maple syrup again this year.
I will show my results next time.


'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Flowers are bloomin'

I have some of my Amaryllis blooming now...

Red Lion

Not sure of this one's name, 
but she is orange.
Very beautiful...

This one is yet to be...

My orchid is growing buds,  too.
I think this is the pink one...

This is another orchid...
I believe this is the white one...
We'll see when it happens...

I hope you enjoy seeing my flowers
as much as I enjoy
having them in my home.
  Have a wonderful day!

'Til next time, 
Love ya,  Jean

Spring Fever?

I've been craving flowers lately...
So I bought some today... 
and made this arrangement for my 
dining room table.

I am trying to be patient... 
waiting for Spring and the gardening season!

(I even polished the silver!)

Here is a closeup...

It helps a little.  In the meantime,  I am sewing,  doing some painting,  changing my curtains and drapes and sprucing the place up a bit.  I'm liking the changes!

Party Time...

My daughter had a surprise birthday party 
for her husband on Saturday night.  
It was his 50th.,  so it was a special one.

There were about 80 people at the party.
I had the honor of making the cake.
I just do this for my family.
I took some Wilton courses a few years ago,
and enjoy making them.
So here is the cake.....

So I brought the cake in pieces before the party...
and put it together there.
This layer was 12" x 18", 
and it was half yellow and half marble cake.

The cupcake bottom and top were both chocolate cake...

Trick candles...
but he knew...   haha

I think it came out pretty cute...
and it was delicious!

I love these opportunities to express my creativity...

I'm just waiting for the next one to come along!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

I'm getting ready for St. Valentine's Day...
Made these hearts from fabric 
from my scrap containers yesterday.  
They have some lavender inside 
and some polyfil to puff them up a bit.

 I got a bunch of ribbons and tied them all together 
and hung the hearts from them.

Some of the other things 
that I have collected from around my house.

Valentine's Day is always fun at my house!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean
