We woke up this morning to light snow falling and about an inch on the ground! So pretty! I thought by noon it would be all gone, but it was still snowing and at one point we had probably about 2", maybe a little more. I got some nice photos before most of it melted this afternoon, but there is more on the way this next week. Happy dance! Here are some photos around the yard show how pretty it was, not in any particular order...
My favorite shot!!!
I Finally Have Flowers-
I had quite the adventure this winter starting sometime before Thanksgiving. I was looking all over for a white or cream-colored amaryllis and could not find any. Instead of buying the red ones that were everywhere I kept looking and basically at Christmas I had no amaryllis. I had a wild idea to try Trader Joe's New Year's Eve night and found this great Amaryllis Garden for $15. It had three giant amaryllis bulbs (unknown colors), as well as a beautiful little Ivy, surrounded by moss in a really nice little wooden crate. What a steal! I gave it a regular little watering and the two smaller ones bloomed a few days ago and the large main stock bloomed today. It smells heavenly in the dining room. I read up on how to keep amaryllis bulbs after they bloom and will do that and have them again next year! Thank you Trader Joe's, for the cream and white blooms!
Staked them up
Dining Table Crate-
I found this cute little dining room crate on LTD Commodities a while back, bought it for after the holidays and I love it! On the side it has great graphics and quote. I always use table runners and have some kind of a small tray or basket holding regularly used condiments. So is perfect for the space, just a little something to organize things. Love the metal, rusty corners and rope handles!!!
Grandma's toothpick holder goes well with it too!
