Friday Fun

 Well it has been one of those mentioned the weather has been a trial for many. My sisters sent me these pretty pictures from Grimmwood.


We did get some snow here Wednesday Night....about two inches. We had gone to our Ash Wednesday service at 6 pm. When we went inside, nothing. When we came out about 1/2 inch of snow and slick roads. We made it home safely.  People were out playing in the snow at ten o'clock at night. I hope this is Winters last Hurrah.

Since I have been stuck inside all week, not much to show today. I did visit our local consignment store last week and found this lamp for a great price. I purchased it for my living room. Pardon my OTT light that you can see...I should have moved it to get a photo. But as all stitchers know, OTT lights are important too.

I love lamps that are different. 

For those of you who are looking for calming influences, I found a new channel on You Tube that I spent some time binge watching. It is Forgotten Ways Farm...Abby Jo is the mama to this large family who live simply in Idaho.  Most of the scenes are just cozy home shots, some cooking etc.  I subscribed right away.

Well that is all I have for today. Hope all are keeping warm. I could not help but think of the line from The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, Aslan is on the move.  I have thought of Narnia a lot this week.

The lamp is beautiful - what a find! We havent had much snow - just enough to cover the grass and gone almost as quick as it comes. Stay warm and have a good weekend.

Grimmwood is so beautiful,nestled in the valley with the snow topped mountain. How fortunate you are to have such a beautiful place to go to. Love you lamp, it's unique and as you might know Autumnal colors are my favorite. That would look nice in Grimmwood too!! Stay safe in the snow...its falling heavily here and looks so pretty but I'm done with winter at this point.

Your lamp is beautiful- a perfect fit for your living room. The photos are Grimmwood are pretty too. Nature is pretty in all seasons, but I am hoping this was winter's last hurrah as well.
