Fickle Snow...

For three days
I have been taunted...

by a fickle snow...


she and I wait patiently,
for the big event...

it is expected to arrive tonight...
a big storm brews on the horizon,

6-12 inches of the fluffy stuff is expected..
I do say EXPECTED 'cause
you know how fickle mother nature can be...


I popped out pre-event
and ran some errands,
picked up some odds and ends...


in the end
I think mostly odds...
like a half a dozen cupcake bath melts...


I am envisioning a long walk
 in the freshly fallen snow,

followed by a long hot
cupcake sweet bath...


have you let the holidays go?

or have you held on,
just a little?


I have held on a little..

I couldn't part with my tiny wings,
quite yet...


and a tiny strand on rice lights,
an after Christmas sale purchase,
couldn't wait until next year...

to add a little sparkle to a winters day...


Today I am joining...
and

Sending you all a warm winter hug....

Hi Bella!

I remember how snow in that area is so hit and miss. But one of my daughters is just up the hill in from you and she is already hit with snow.

Take care and stay warm!

Oh Bella, I loved reading this! And I adore your cage, rice lights and wings too. I wouldn't be able to put them away just yet either. In fact, the wings will be perfect to symbolize 'Cupid' next month! ~Debra @ Gardens Inspired

I just talked to my friend in Snohomish, WA and she said it is snowing there and piling up. I hope you get some snow to enjoy. I have never seen those little lights. Rice lights? SOOOO cute! xo Diana

At least you stocked up on the essentials! Those cupcakes look sweet enough to eat! Just darling! I hope you get your snow. It's been showing up here and there on blogs. Christmas is not quite over yet here. We still got fairy lights. They may have to stay. I'm thinking it over. Things are sweet and pretty here on your blog, as usual!

Bella I always keep a bit of Christmas out all year. I love the sparkle and magic of the lights, it warms me to see them every night. I have them in various places. One on my kitchen table still, though Santa is gone now replaced by a Garden Fairy. The gold grapevine lamppost is now the nightlight for the front porch. I got some copper spray paint today to gild the grapevine leaves that are still falling. Some will be gold, some copper and some another shade in between. I have an old patina pot they will go in. All beautiful!

Exquisite photography in today's post, Bella. Loved every shot. Oh, those cupcakes for the bath are darling.

Hope you are spared a massive snowstorm (hope we are, too, ha ha). Take care. Susan

Love your wings on the birdcage--I think mine will stay out all year. We are getting little bits of snow here and there too and my kids are doing a snow dance every night. Those cupcake bath fizzies are darling! Enjoy!

Candylei said...

We'll let you have the snow ;-) I like a little dusting now and then but after the other year when we got 3 ft then more-- I'm okay w/out it. Lovely pics for us to swoon over!!

Oh no, I heard there was a lot of snow out west, don't know where you live. I think those angels wings look perfect all year round!

Those cupcake bath melts are darling!!!! What a perfect way to stay warm during this "blizzard" we are expecting! Wondering where you found those tiny little angel wings? I love the way you hung those on your cage. xoxo, tracie

I know you aren't from the South....because if you were, you would have talked about your milk and toilet paper run. Anytime Mr. Weather Man says there is the slightest possiblity of snow, everyone runs to the grocery store to buy an economy pack of toilet paper and a new gallon of milk along with a bunch of junk food!

We don't get snow often and literally some towns come to a complete halt at one snowflake, so you see the "need" to be prepared. *giggle*

I like your angel wings and think they would look great year round where they are if you want to keep them. Cute bath melts too!

Love your photos, with or without Snow, that Garden Lady is Beautiful.... I am from Michigan & we always have lots of snow in the winter, but so far, just a wee bit {which I can easily live with} I just hope Spring is Not Delayed!
Have a Wonderful week
Cheryl

I hope the snow will fall Bella so that you can enjoy it! We haven't had any snow in Holland this year :-(.

Lovely photo's of your home.

Much love,

Susan said...

Those cupcakes look so very realistic! Hope you enjoyed snow and a nice hot bath.
I can't quite let go of a bit of Christmas decor, either.
Happy WW,
Susan

A new folloer to your blog.. Those cupcakes look yummy. Our snow finally arrived a week ago. It is unusual for us to go almost two winter months without snow.

Did you get your snow, Bella? I heard on the news tonight that there was a storm out your way. At least you're all set for nice sweet bath! :)
