Spring Break

Spring Break means a blog break for me.  I've decided to take a little time off from blogging and spend some time with family and friends.  I'll be back in a few weeks.

Do you have plans for your Spring Break?

My Sun Room Mantel Is Featured On Apartment Therapy

You regular readers have seen my mantel in my sun room
 It's one of several featured on Apartment Therapy.

This is a vintage mantel that I'd carried around from house to house always hoping to find a spot.  When we added the sun room on to the back of the house, it fit perfectly onto the chimney from the fireplace in the level below.   I'm so glad I didn't sell it although I took a ton of grief about it every time we moved. I think it's found its home.

Here are a few of the other mantels featured with mine.

I'm Inside A Snow Globe

This is our first snow storm in several years.  School is canceled and we got to sleep in.
 What a surprise when I finally got out of bed and looked outside.
 Large fluffy flakes are falling all around our house.  I'm inside a snow globe!!!

 I took the photos from the inside of the my very own snow globe.  Enjoy.

We're expecting more this afternoon.   So lovely.
It will be a perfect day if we don't lose power.
