Snowy Lane 2010

This was my post from yesterday....I like the frosty tree in the foreground along with the fence post. But....I'm ready to see green grass and green leaves now..

Such Beauty

I'd like to think I had a small hand in her beauty and charm but not sure any of it came from me except for those exception green eyes. She has her dad's smile and nose and his gift for gab. She doesn't know a stranger and would give you the shirt off her back even through she didn't have one to replace it with. She is 100% devoted to her son and I hope he realizes how lucky he is to have her. I am blessed to have been given the job of being her mom, even through I failed to fulfill that position properly. I hope she knows she is the love of my life!

This was taken on Christmas morning at her house. Her sweater kind of clashed with the lights so I toned it down to a bit of sepia. I need your honest opinion here.....I softened her skin and sharpened her eyes and hair but want to know if I over did it....I hate seeing photos where the skin looks fake. Is it too much?

This was not the post I was going to do....the one I did yesterday was of snow so I posted it to PP instead. LOL...

Had to buy these when I saw them at the grocery yesterday. They can make me smile even when I'm looking out at the snow.
Is it ever going to quit????
Used several textures and overlays from FloraBella.
Staple from Shabby Princess.

Shot of the Clementine that I took a couple of weeks ago.
Love these little things.
Played around with a few textures.

Made these for all to eat on Sunday. So good, but I can't keep eating things like this. I guess the next ones I make will have to be Chocolate for Brent.

10 inches plus

This has got to be the worst winter I can remember....I'm so sick of this white stuff. Bill is still outside (its almost 7 pm) trying to get as much cleared off as he can so we can get out in the morning to go to work. It's still coming down and the wind is blowing, so it will start drifting back. He looks so cold out there. The poor old Toro is probably about to lay down on us. It's 17 years old. We only use it to blow snow and mow the corner across the road. We want to buy a snow blower for the JD but its almost 4000.00 and we haven't got it saved up yet. Maybe by next winter. It's going to be a miserable day tomorrow....hopefully, they have the highways cleared at least. I just won't be traveling on the gravels or secondary blacktops. At least the sun is suppose to shine by Tues. or Wed.

Cherry Crisp

Just finished making these...I'm sure they wouldn't be on Weight Watchers menu! I haven't tried them yet. Bill says they are good but the crust is kind of rubbery. You use Grands flaking biscuits and cut each biscuit in half. Then you press them out in a circle and put them in a muffin pan. I was having trouble get them pressed into the cups, so I used my Pampered Chef roller and rolled them out. That might be why they came out a bit rubbery or I didn't bake them quite long enough. I don't know. I'll try them again someday.

Winter 2010

I pass this every morning and for once, I took my camera with me to get a shot. I wish I'd thought to put it in the car yesterday morning because the sun was shining bright but I didn't. By the time we got done loading and on the road, the sun was gone and the wind was howling. It made for one miserable day.

Valentine 2010

Here they are....nothing real special as I didn't have much time. Gavin was here helping me and he was a big help and we had fun. He let me know that the girls were a lot more special than the boys were...lol....I just couldn't come up with much for the boys that wasn't too girly for them. The bags are from Shabby Shoppe from the Valentine collection. Gavin and I made the basketball on the Cricut. It took us quite a bit of cutting before we figured out how to get the ball and swoosh lined up right. Gavin glued the balls together and then stapled and filled the bags.

Walk in the Snow

We have about 5 or 6 inches of snow on the ground from yesterday and it's snowing again but it's not accumulating much today.
It is so pretty out that we went for a walk in the park. It was so cold that by the time I finished snapping these I couldn't feel the shutter button. I guess I need new gloves and I know I need some boots.
Brent took the third one down.

Playing around again

Just messing around. One of the cute Valentine bowl I got.
It looks funny on the left side but that just the way the light was hitting it.

Baked Potato Soup

I'm running late for work but wanted to post this before I left. My daughter bought this cookbook for me for Christmas...its from her church and this recipe was in it. This is absolutely the best potato soup I have ever eaten. Bill and I could eat it every day but then we would have to take up running to work it off. It's pretty fattening.....LOL...but soooo good.
Recipe card from Shabby Princess from her Holiday Recipe collection.

Last of the sunroom images

The last of the images for now any way.
I still need to make a couple of toss pillows to match the chair seats and maybe a table runner.
I will probably pickup a few more of the yellow dishes to set around.

It's that little lamp and the table mat the cutest? Got the lamp at a local shop and picked the candle mat up on my trip last week-end in Washington Court House, Ohio.

More new look

More of the sunroom. Love the bookshelf...well heck I love it all. Notice the digital frame on the self...Christmas gift from Vickie....I have some images on it but I want to put all of the ones from the blog if I can. One thing about the new furniture is that I don't have to dust as often without all the glass tables. Not that the dust isn't there but you don't notice it as much.
Forgot to say the frames are by Nancy Comelab.

New Look

This is a few shots. A total turn around...went from white to black. It's still a work in progress.
I'll post more later.
The frames by Nancy Comelab and the rest from Shabby Princess.
Hope your MIL is doing better.
