Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Where is Spring?? I actually saw a Robin yesterday but was too slow with the camera..

Dreadful ! The view yesterday morning poor old lilac tree..

This is by the kitchen door, Friday morning... but it really was pretty everything coated in sparkling snow..a good day to turn on the oven and bake!

Our pontoon boat is waiting for summer and lazy days on the lake and rivers around us...We can hardly wait !!

Old rose bushes and persian lilac all covered in heavy snow and my honeysuckle looking droopy..

More droopy roses..

Cute China Doll feet..

A Japanese Bunny Sweater Dress..kinda cute if I only weighed 100 lbs. and was 16 years old!!

You are invited to a PARTY over at Debbie Overton's Blog she is turning 50.. omg! Here is her link: she has recipes and treats for you ..go visit and say hi! She would like you to share your 'Expressions of Gratitide' in your life on her Birthday and link to her..isn't that a Nice Thing to Share?!

Well not much going on here..working on a few projects, so maybe take pictures in a couple of days...guess more intersted in looking at other people's blogs for now.. and Wow, there are some amazing ones out there! Went to Delightful Blogs to look at some' make-up' and 'perfume blogs' and even a couple of funny celebrity gossip blogs.. how 'trashy of me'...

Waaaah! I'm so envious of your snow I could scream! Last week we were in the VERY humid mid-80s. And Robins? Arrrghhhh! Those little bearers of bad news (Spring) were here before Valentine's Day. They may be pretty lil' birdies, but for Houston, they represent the coming of heat, stickiness, having to use the a/c, etc. With that said, could I please borrow a truckload of snow? LOL! Your doll shoes? WAY cute! And thanks for the links! Love your blog, Debra!

I'll have to visit that party, I turn 50 May 5th. (I'm past being able to wear the cute bunny suit too)

Look at all that snow. Things are beginning to turn green around here. I do love snow, but it should keep it's place. It's really rude to cover lilac and rose bushes in April.

I guess I shouldn't ell you that it's 85 degrees here today. Sorry!! But your photos ARE beautiful.
Hey, I peeked at your doll post below- love 'em all. You have some amazingly gorgeous ones. Glad I was able to seem them.

Hi Debra,
I'm sure that you are sick of the snow by now and can't wait until Spring, but I must say the photos of your yard covered in snow look wonderful to me, we don't get snow here where I live, only ever seen snow twice in my life. Thank you for showing us.
Cheers Linda
