April Snow

No pics for you today, ran out of batteries!!!  We had about 2 inches of wet white stuff last night, just enough to make a big mess and to lose power!!!  Power went off about 5 in the return around noon, phone service till about 2 this afternoon!!!  The smoke/fire alarms were chirping and one went off, which scared me to pieces and then I couldn't turn it I climbed my handy stool and ended ripping it out of the ceiling........what a PITA !!!  Now that will have to be repaired along with the other one I ripped out of the ceiling on the last power outage!!!

South of us near my home town got 10 inches of that crazy or what???

Very difficult without power, no coffee, no clocks, no TV or radio, no toast, no laundry, no ironing, no sewing machine, no hot glue gun, no computer, no phone.......started to do some cross stitch but it was too dark to see very well and then got too cold to do went back to bed, no electric blanket, but had two cats to keep me warm!!!  Hope everyone affected has their power back on by now, this was not a fun time.....but at least we were safe.......

Here's to a better tomorrow!!!!

In the pink for Easter

Am sooooo busy baking and fussing, it never ends!!!  But took a short break to set an Easter/Spring table for two.....would show you the setting with the food tonight but it is meat loaf and potatoes with cold slaw, not very elegant on this table!!!

I mixed my wedding china with my mom's china trimmed in silver, and her pink depression glass serving pieces.....also my mom's silver.  Had to use paper napkins, I know, what was I thinking!!!  The linen ones are waiting to be ironed for Sunday.....not doing it now!!!  The white rabbit is a wood cut signed by the artist together with some more alabaster eggs and faux daffies.....small Heisey candlestick and little notebook I made.....kinda looks like a prayer book.....

The small eggs are a gift from my daughter long ago.....the red one is marble, while the green one is malachite.

Wishing all my blog buddies a very happy and blessed Easter season!!!
