Blizzard and Birds!

Well...we got a total of 7 inches of snow and now the wind is blowing like crazy. I spent a good part of the morning photographing the birds that come to the feeders that I have on my sewing room windows. There's been a ton of activity all day. I think I will have to refill the feeders before dark so they are ready for tomorrow morning. I think it going to get below 0 with the wind chill factor of 20 mph winds. I feel so sorry for the birds this time of the year. enjoy the pics!

Snow and More to Come!

Woke up this morning to it snowing. There was about 3 inches on the ground. It's been snowing off and on all day. But the big snow is headed our way starting tonight and into tomorrow morning. There were a few school closing this morning and more cancellations are popping up as the day goes by. We are expecting 6" to 10". There is blizzard warnings for tomorrow. I guess the winds are expected to kick up tonight. Not looking forward to that. Hate being cold. So are a few pics that I took today. Some of my friends on facebook, that used to live in my area wanted to see some pics.Cute little Junco bird that visits us here in the winter.
Bird Feeders out on my deck. They sure were busy all day with the birds!

My Holiday Home Pics!

Finally have all my decorating done. So here are a few pics I have taken. I wish my home were more prim then what it is. Some day we may get around to pulling up the carpet and redo the hardwood floors. And get some new furniture, now that the kids are grown and gone.

These pictures are of the front door area. On the back of our front door I have a quilted wall hanging that my mom made about 10 years ago. The tree is made up of individual pieces of fabric that are folded into a triangle. And each little present under the tree is made separately. It's truly a work of art. It's one of my favorite pieces from my mom.

And here are pics of my hallway and up the stairs. I just love the mirror, which we got about 20 years ago at an auction. It's beveled with a wide oak trim.


Here are a couple of vintage stockings! LOL Mine and my hubbies from when we were kids. My mom made mine and hubbies grandma made his. My stocking is a little ragged. A couple of years ago Bonsai, my kitty, decided to attack it. He has a thing for anything made of felt. Don't know why. He has even gotten ornaments off the tree made of felt and chews them up.
