What to do When Your Snowed In



Why you grab your camera and take pictures and walk around the house snapping, doesn’t everyone do this? If you blog you do! lol.
That’s what I just did while still in my pj’s even went out on my front porch to take pictures of the snow that started late this morning and is still coming down. I’ll show you later.
I also put the chair cover and couch cover in the washing machine, I had the couch cover off for a while but I like it better than the blue so I figure the more I wash it the softer it will get, it’s the third time for it. I have two of these chairs that were given to me as you can see they are chippy! The desk I found for $25.00 at a yardsale.

I really can’t decide which I like…this is when I had it in the entryway.P1302146 the cover on it or not.

I also took a picture of the wreath on my front door, I had bought this wreath about two years ago and just never knew what to do with it. This year I decided to it was going to be my “winter wreath,” goes so well with all the snow we are getting.

The desk is coming along, this is with one coat of primer, I’m doing this right, letting it dry for a couple days between coats of primer and paint, because it will be used a lot and I want it to look good.

I now have an empty wall in the diningroom since I moved the bookcase out, I found this oval frame at Michaels, they sell them just like this to use without a picture and it was on sale!

So maybe I’ll do something like this with other pictures thrown in, I guess I’m just going to fool around with it to see if I like it or not. The square one is from GW for $2.99 which reminds me I haven’t been there for a while!

So here is the snow we are getting, the tree there in the background is a Holly Tree always looks so pretty with snow on it.  snow 2013 and random pics 001

I like the chair both ways, but my favorite is with it off.
The wreath is so pretty on your front door. We got 3 inches of snow here today.
