Baby Fields

I have always, always loved this print. In fact, I found it and had it professionally framed when Jenny was younger. The reason this particular print grabs my heart is that our Jenny has a doll that she loved dearly when she was small. Baby Fields was two weeks older than Jenny and was a much loved Betsy Clark doll that went through umpteen dresses, legs, and arms. The only original part left of that poor babydoll was her trunk and her face. And the facial features were all washed/worn off. But there was never a more loved baby doll.
As we noticed how worn this doll was getting we began looking for another Betsy Clark doll. We looked and looked and looked. And looked some more. My mother in law finally found one on a visit to San Francisco. Upon giving it to Jenny, we noted there wasn't much enthusiasm. Hmm. Jen disappeared for a bit and returned, having gone to Mima's bathroom, gotten some lipstick, and given the new doll some painted lips. Horrors. Needless to say, that doll was trashed and we just kept Baby Fields repaired. Some things just can't be replaced.
Both of these adorable prints came from a blog I found when I first began my blog. The Feathered Nest. Dawn generously shares her prints with us and has such a sweet site. Go visit her and see for yourself. She's a creative soul and a real sweetheart.

Sugar & Spice

Sugar & spice
and everything nice,
That's what little girls
are made of!
I thought of this nursery rhyme when I saw this snapshot of Miss Elle that Jenny took recently. All pink, and soft, and girly. She was five months old this weekend. Five short months!

Snow! Finally!

This is Stacey's home! At the time this was taken, they'd already gotten four inches and that was early this morning. They ended up getting quite a bit more. Austin and Alaina had a blast! This is Leslie's home and you can see her 'boot' prints along with MarleyDog's paw prints as they walked outside early this morning. There was enough snow that there's still snow between the prints and the driveway! Lucky girls.
Look at the snow Jenny got at her house! And she lives just outside city limits! Note how cute our youngest grandaughter is. She doesn't know what snow is yet.
Our daughters got snow today. They really got snow.
And here's what we got. And this was after several hours.
This was after it snowed a couple of hours. Didn't get much better than this. Drat.
Just not the same, but hey, it's snow!
(This area will eventually be joined with the units on the other side of the lake. For now though, it's just a quiet zone that doesn't look too pretty.) So, how much snow did your part of the world receive?! It's still coming down, but it isn't sticking on the asphalt.

New Decorating Site!

I found this site and fell in love with her ideas! She's Becca at Adventures in Decorating and you'll enjoy her posts and photos as much as I have! I look forward to reading further and seeing more of her beautiful home! Look what they did with their breakfast room?! Love it!
And I want this centerpiece on our table!
Don't you love the candle idea? and the Lazy Susan?!
What are you waiting for?! Go, go!
