❄️A ❄️ Picture ❄️ Perfect ❄️ Morning ❄️

Hello my lovely friends 💕

For days now the weather guy has warned us of the ‘Winter storm’ headed this way.

Well, when I took the dogs out last night, there wasn’t much of anything…even the grass still peeked through a light dusting. But when I went outside this morning, everything had changed. I was greeted by this view…

The owl is wearing a hat…

…and our ‘Welcome’ bear a mask – I wonder what he’s up to 😋

The neighborhood kids got busy 😃

For me there are not many things more beautiful than a snow-covered Pine Tree

I don’t think Pearl, the cat, cares 😁

The Wisteria branches are a work of art 😍

Now I shut up, and let you enjoy the scenery 😊

(There’s nothing wrong with your eyes – it was early, and still somewhat dark-ish 🙂)

I hope you enjoyed the stroll through our Winter Wonderland 💜

I wish you a wonderful weekend! 💕

Looking back…and forward 😊

Hello my lovely friends 💕
I hope this finds you well! Did you have a nice holiday season? 🎄⛄️
I wish you a very happy and successful 2019! May it be as fabulous as you are 😍

You may have noticed that I took a little break on here.
Note to self: Don’t do that again! 🙈 It’s really hard to find the way back – even though I enjoy it immensely. Finding a perfect re-starting point…well, didn’t happen.
So I’m just gonna tell/show you what I’ve been up to over the last few weeks. 😁

I did a few craft shows – here’s a picture of the very last one. It was at my friend Donna’s house. She makes the most amazing canned goods, and was so sweet to host a ‘Maker’s Market’ at her house. 😊

 

In between shows I was busy creating new pretties for the next one.

 In December we had some friends over for a wonderful ‘Holiday Party’. 😍🎄🥳
I made a German/Hungarian Beef Stew.  Judging by the empty bowls… it was delicious.🤩

 

One of my goals for the coming year is to take my camera with me more, and show you some pictures from around here. We’re off to a great beginning – here are my two favorites from the first outing.

Sycamores  – I love them! 😍

 

Some em….pretty things (if you know what they’re called, please let me know) 😊

 

I made my first felted hat!
At this point hubby really doubted that I knew what I was doing 😂

But – it turned out well  😃 More on that later.

 Oh…one more blogging goal….I wanna learn (and share) about all the amazing art out there. I’m thinking a ‘Weekly Gallery’  🏞 What are your thoughts on that?

Before you leave – here’s the first hat of 2019. It’s a Pixie 🧚🏼‍♀️ Hat to symbolize the hope for a magical new year 🤩

 Alright my friends – this was it in a nutshell. It’s good to be back! 🤗
I hope to see you again soon. 💕

Will You Take A Walk With Me? 😎🍁🌳

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Lansing, KS is not your typical pretty ‘Small-Town-America’. But in the Fall it turns into a canvas for Mother Nature most beautiful work. 😍

It’s a sunny, crisp morning, so I took my camera with me on my daily walk.

Here are some pictures of the delightful sights I’m lucky enough to see every day 😊

Straight out the door stands this beauty

These pictures speak for themselves

There’s a little frost on the ground

As the sun went higher, more and more colors came to life

The little creek was really flowing after the rains two weeks ago. Now…not so much

Sunshine and a little green fairy 🧚🏼‍♀️

This one made me chuckle 😄

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll 🍁

Do you have a lot of Fall colors in your neck of the woods? Let me know…I’d love to hear/see what’s outside your door! 💕

Beautiful Night Sky ✨

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Yesterday I came across this post from the local weatherman…announcing a -somewhat- rare occurrence

Of course I had to go out and see. Luckily it was a clear night, and so I was able to capture

The Moon, Saturn…and a Fairy 😊

A few days prior I found this image that shows the planet – (and other known object-) sizes in relation to one another

To look at Saturn in comparison to the Moon – the itty bitty moon – and then go back to how they appeared in the sky…I don’t know what to say.

I can’t even imagine the distance between us and this planet.

🌓💫🌎💫🌗🌍🌓💫🌍💫🌗🌍🌓💫🌍💫🌗🌍🌓💫🌗🌍🌓💫🌍💫🌗🌎🌓💫

While we’re gazing up at the sky…here are two more pictures from the nights before.

This was last Friday…we thought for sure we’d get some rain. Didn’t happen, but the clouds were pretty impressive.

Something pretty cool happened here, in the clouds, in the distance. Constant lightning! It was quite a show. 😍 Sadly, by the time I got my camera the clouds had moved on.

Still a pretty picture though 😁

Do you like to observe the moon, the vast universe above us?

I am very fascinated by it all, and do sit outside at night looking up, admiring the beauty of the night sky. 🙂

Have a good night 🌙 It’s almost time for the full moon. Enjoy! 😊

I Miss Puddles ☔️

Hello my lovely friends 💕I’ve always loved rainy days! The sound of rain against the window, the racing clouds, the smell of the air and wet asphalt. 😊 How about you? Do you feel the same or are you more of a ‘heat and sunshine’ person? Since it’s been a while since I got to enjoy the beautiful moisture from above, I took to the web, and found this… 😃RainyMood.com – It is an app, but this website gives you a preview 😊☔️🌧💜🌧☔️💜☔️🌧💜🌧☔️💜☔️🌧💜🌧☔️💜☔️🌧💜🌧☔️💜☔️A (somewhat) Heart-shaped puddle I captured last year After a rainstorm last fall…don’t you love the tree reflection in the water? 😍This is from a couple of years ago…during my ‘drawing phase’. See, rain-themed 😁Maybe I’ll go now and try a rain dance! 😆I wish you a fabulous weekend, and hope you get to do things you love! 💕

Sunshine, Flowers, and a Tiny Spider 🌞

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Summer Sunday Afternoon 😍 Are you relaxing with a book, a project, or are you just enjoying the lazy hours this time of the week brings? 😊

For me it’s a combination of all three. 😎

Before I settled in, I walked around our flowery garden, and snapped some pretty pictures.

As I’m sorting through the photos I realize I should have paid better attention to the little labels in my flower pots upon purchase. 😕 I know some names of the more popular plants…but others escape me. So you’re not gonna learn anything today 😉 just enjoy!

The first thing I noticed when I stepped outside was a little spider busily running back and forth, weaving a beautiful web. It was not easy capturing the web…but I got some pretty sunshine-y pictures while trying 🌞

And then I got it…see her in the bottom right corner? 🕸

The Wisteria is on her second bloom this year 😍

I can’t get enough of the Hydrangea 💕

Snapdragons have always been one of my favorites 😊

I love to pinch their little cheeks 😆

The ‘Rose of Sharon’ bushes are just now starting to bloom

So is the Hibiscus

Here are some ‘what were they called again?’ 😁

Just as I turned to go inside I glanced at the little field of clover, and decided to give them a spot in the limelight 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this little trip into my world 😍

I’m wishing you a fabulous Sunday afternoon! 💕

Happy ‘You’ Day 🌼💜👑

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Did you have a fabulous day? Whether it was spent with the kiddos, your Mom, your fur-babies or all of the above…I hope you enjoyed being celebrated, got spoiled, and remember today as a very special ‘You’ Day! 😍🥂🍾👑💜

I had a lovely time at breakfast with hubby and our daughter 😊

Planted some of the flower-gifts

My new Hibiscus had a wonderful surprise for me this morning 😍

Isn’t she gorgeous? 😍

Enjoy the rest of your special day … ’cause tomorrow it’s back to this 😉

I’m sending Smiles 🙂 Love 💕 and Hugs 🤗 your way!
