All About February

Hello out there! Anyone still hanging around blog land?

I have been planning to post about so many things this winter, and it just has not worked out for me…

So, I’m a little “under the weather” with a nasty cold, and now have plenty of time. And I thought I’d just share some random things I’ve done this month. First, I finally got a market basket, which I can’t wait to carry to the Farmer’s Market when the weather gets warm.

I also took a few photos of these pretty red carnations in my vintage fly catchers (which make very interesting vases, don’t you agree?) Just in time for Valentine’s Day :)

I also used one of these vintage initial glasses as a vase. These pretty glasses have been in my husband’s family for a few generations. C for Cunningham :)

And, surprisingly, February has been a gorgeous month so far here in Louisiana. We have had beautiful sunshiny days and cool temperatures. Definitely not the usual freezing cold that we are accustomed to. In the photo below, I used my French fruit crate turned upside down to place the flowers on…makes for a nice centerpiece and adds height.

Most mornings, while I have a little quiet time, I enjoy a cup (or two) of coffee. I really like those quiet moments before getting my day started :) Do you spend a little time with the Lord before diving into your day?

Speaking of coffee…did you hear about the new white Keurig? I think I may need one :) It would blend in with my white kitchen better than the black. Also, see the cubbies in the photo below, I painted them with Annie Sloan white paint. I got them from a sweet vendor at our barn sale. I have really enjoyed switching items in and out of those little cubbies…what a versatile piece. One of my favorites :)

I’ve had some time this month to try a few new recipes. Do you find good recipes on Pinterest? Me too! This one below, is baked short ribs…with chicken stock, braised short ribs, onions & mushrooms with rosemary and fresh spices. Very tasty!

One more thing…I’d love to share a little interview that our local TV station did with us back in December. It’s our story…shared by Rick Rowe of KTBS :) We were honored to welcome him into our home…and hope you enjoy our story:

I love that crate turned upside down--and your chandelier is gorgeous! Feel better--we have had nice weather here in Oregon too. No snow at all! I kinda wish we would get a little :)

Beautiful story! I'm sure you're making your mom proud & also creating a legacy for your children like she did for you (the part about your beloved mother brought me to tears as I lost my own mother). God bless!
