Joining in the 1890 Gable House Display Chain

This is one wooden bowl I have displayed on my dining room table, given to me by a very dear friend for Christmas.

A closeup of the bowl and a recently acquired pewter sugar bowl and porriger.. pewter is one of my newest collectibles. I think it goes so well with my newly acquired black coverlet. Pardon the vinyl plastic over the tablecloth, but I have a dh that is prone to setting just about anything anywhere and I just don't want it stained. Call me practical ! Don't have time to take it off as I am in the midst of trying to make two bunnies by the end of the month !

The wooden herb pot was bought from Misi of 1890 Gable house ! She has very reasonably priced goodies for sale ! I cut up a forsythia branch and placed the sprigs in the pot. Click the link below to view Misi's blog and the bowl display chain today !

I lack display areas,, so for now, my most favorite finds are grouped on my table !

Have a fun day all .. I gotta go back to work in the sewing room !

Good Morning !

The photo of the sunrise I took this morning looks like spring is here already.. but the weather is not cooperating. It is 8 degrees and the windchill is minus 4, which is warmer than it has been in the last few days actually !

The barn you see in the photo can be seen from my back deck when there are no leaves on the trees, that is. This is only one part of the huge farm complex I live near.

I live on a small mountain ( big hill ) on the continental divide of PA and this isn't the highest point as you can see even higher hilly ranges around me.

With all this cold snowy weather .. all you think of doing is eating and baking something sweet to take the pain away of being cooped up inside ! It sure is easy to put on the pounds living up north.

They are calling for more snow for this weekend and into next week ( oh, joy ) !

Spring and warmer weather can't get here soon enough ! My mind is on spring, though, as I have been busy making a couple new bunnies. I am waiting for some fabric I bought online to make their springy outfits.

Have a wonderful warm weekend wherever you live !
