We are from Florida and it really does not snow there but we have been in Illinois since Dec. 9 because my 99 year old + mom was ill. Thank God she recovered and is home now.
Anyway, it snowed on Christmas eve just in time for a white Christmas
I was dreaming of doing a tea time table on the snow and how cool the photos would be with the surrounding snow. I thought I would never have another chance if I did not do it now, so I searched for tea things that I could use from my sister's cabinets and this is what I came up with: an old Asian cast iron tea set. And what better centerpiece to use than a bonsai tree for an Asian table?
Good thing my hubby John was nice enough to play along with me so I had a photographer when I wanted to be in the picture, lol.
I think this is my favorite shot..
My sister had 2 dead trees cut just a few days ago and I had the cutters save a table and trunks to make us 4 benches. Before they could cut the last 2, their electric saw got dull so they are coming back to cut me 2 more.
While we were playing, my brother in law was shoveling. Boy oh boy! Am I glad we do not have to deal with something like this in Florida! Now, I appreciate our home even more.
Thanks for stopping by! The temp is below zero here now and we are freezing, just not used to this kind of weather. I don't even want to go out anywhere. Waaaah!!! I miss being home!!
