Thinking of Spring while the Snow is Flying!

I started thinking a couple of days ago about Spring, with this warmer then usual Winter. So I listed this sweet goose doll last night.

She is made with a pattern by Doreen Frost who is a most talented artist!

This morning woke up to a blanket of ice and snow. Now it's all snow as the temp has been dropping since this morning.

Captured some more shots of the snowflakes!!

These two pics were from this morning when it was more ice then snow that was falling.

And.....then a few hours later when the temperature begin to drop
I took these shots! You can see that they are a more formed snowflake now!

I'm having so much fun with my camera! OK...time to get back to my sewing!

A few days ago when we were getting a few snow flurries I thought I would try to take a picture of some snowflakes! I was amazed when they somewhat turned out!

Isn't this amazing!!

The first pic is my favorite!!!

Today I captured some winter shots by the Mississippi river.

Right along the Mississippi River. Casino is in the background.

~~ Happy Belated New Year!! ~~

Wow...I can't believe it has been almost a month since I last posted on my blog! Well I have been busy to say the least! With Christmas then making a trip to N.C. the day after Christmas. Where did the month of December go!!! Hubby and I left before sunrise on Dec. 26 with perfect weather all the way there. On the way back home was a different story! 30 miles south of Indianapolis we ran into patch's of snowy weather. Where ever it was snowing there were accidents and tie ups, with traffic sometimes at a halt. Four times we had to slow down because of accidents. We saw a total of 25 cars wrecked and being towed away. It took us a hour and a half to go 30 miles!! People were going to fast for the icy conditions on the road. Thank God we made it home safe and sound and a little later then expected.

We had a wonderful visit with my daughter, son in law and grandchildren!!! Nice weather to boot! There is a neighbor below the hill from my daughter that has a interesting shed that is covered in some very prim items. I had to get a shot of this to show you all.

Look at all those rusty skillets!!

Here's a closer pic! Took this when I walked down to the end of the road to get my daughters mail out of their mailbox.

We made a trip to Asheville N.C. to The Grove Park Inn. It's a huge beautiful resort that I guess they shot a couple of scenes from the movie Dirty Dancing.

They were having a display of Gingerbread Houses

I couldn't believe some of these creations! Just gorgeous! I took these photos with my iphone so they aren't the greatest.

I think this would be so fun to be a part of something like this.

New Years Eve was awesome!!! I made a big pot of Chili and later had smore's around a big bonfire.

They live next door to a church. That's why there is a little blue cross in the background. It had gotten up into the 60's early that day. It was perfect!

My 11 month old grandson Max trying out his big sister's bike! Love this pic!

OK now back to reality!!! I've been working on a few new items for Valentines Day. So be sure to check back here in a couple of days.
