I love it

I love Etsy. From their website:

I could literally spend hours looking through all of the different shops. Here are some of my favorite porcelain/ceramic pieces.

1. Sterling Tea Set from Lighten Up Design
2. CLASSIC . Take-Out from Lorena Barrezueta
3. 6oz tea cup inner workings from Circa Ceramics
4. Zombie Plate from Folded Pigs
5. Small Whirl Serving Dish from Kim Westad
6. Porcelain Bowl from Kristen K Swanson
7. Knitware Vase from Alyssa Ettinger Design

What have you found that you really like?

I am completely mesmerized by all of the snow! I find it incredibly peaceful and beautiful. Maybe if I were required to drive in it everyday I would have a different opinion. We had more snow last night, and I just love the way it piled up on everything. There are stacks of snow on top of everything that doesn't move! Check out the hot tub! My parents contemplated going in it last night...brrr!

It is almost ironic to see snow piled up on top of a chiminea!

When I got up this morning it had stopped snowing, the sun was out and it was beautiful! When my sister and I were little girls we used to put on our moon boots and pretend we actually leaving our tiny foot prints all over the surface of the moon!

Even Nandi likes the snow!

I am not going anywhere any time soon!

My mom's lilac bush. It has been over 8 years since I have seen lilacs in bloom. I cannot wait!

Go Pack Go!!

In case anyone out there has any questions on how seriously Wisconsinites take their Green Bay Packers. Seriously!

So the weather has gotten so cold that even the natives think it's cold. Being recently transplanted back in Wisconsin I have finally got some company to complain about the weather. It is a blessing and a curse!

Earlier this week when it was a tad bit warmer we received a good amount of snow. It is like I'm a kid again, I am totally mesmerized. After I shoveled the driveway and sidewalk for the first time in over 8 years I had to take my camera out and capture the beautiful snow.

Safe and Sound

Yes, I'm definitely back in Wisconsin. This sign was posted at the entrance of Fleet Farm.

When I arrived there was a lot of snow on the ground. The weather has started to warm up and the snow is melting. It was quite foggy yesterday. This is the view down the street. You can even start to see the grass!

Would you look at that... my dad wears suspenders! He probably got them at Fleet Farm.
