We never did get snow the other day, but less than five miles south they got several inches of that wet, heavy, beautiful spring snow :) I always love a spring snow because within a day or two it is gone. Today is a gorgeous day. I cut grass for the first time. Don't you just love the smell of a freshly cut lawn? Getting some more yard clean up done and I have plenty to keep me busy for many days, though I may not be able to get out of bed tomorrow.
Friday I hit a couple antique shops with my brother's DSO Lyn. I was VERY good ~ only bought this sweet little treen container (2nd from right) and a couple gifts that I cannot share (and some silverplate spoons to make necklaces but that doesn't count . . . lol). It's been a while since I've added to my treen collection, but this was too good a deal to pass up. The pieces are more of a barn red in person. You can see more of my collection here.
Yesterday was the Gathered Treasures show about an hour and a half from home. Met dear friend Sheila and was good yet again (no fun). It is a wonderful show, but even though I have a few "primitive" things, that is not my style. I did come home with two snowbirds dating from the mid 1800's. Now that I have three, I guess it's an official collection. Here they are sitting atop a little tiger maple corner cupboard ~ sweet but not old ~ in the guest/computer room. (A snowbird was mounted on the roof to keep the snow from falling on people below. The wings held back the snow to allow it to melt.)
A couple weeks ago when we had a few days of bitter cold, I thought all my daffodil bulbs would freeze. Some did but many did not which makes me a happy camper.
Hyacinth is another favorite of mine :)
Primrose . . .
I don't remember what the sweet little flowers are.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
