Features from Last Week’s Party


My Picks….

After our generous snowfall this weekend and the Farmers’ Almanac suggesting
that we’re due for 30 inches of snow in March, I am so ready for spring.
Sherry’s still life of gorgeous chintz and tulips was just that breath of spring I needed.

    • Diane says

      Haha! I can’t even see any dead grass, Sherry. It’s buried deep under the snow! 😉

  11. Mel says

    Happy Ash Wednesday……

    In the meantime, I have to say, there were some cool things linked here last week that I eyed–but I didn’t go visiting. The good news is I still can! And I really like the diversity of what gets posted.
    And that dead grass that was showing up in places (south side of the house where the sun does it stuff)–covered by snow again. Ah well……it’s clean looking again! LOL

    • Diane says

      We went to a great Ash Wednesday service at church tonight. It was immensely helpful to me in getting my head in the right place to begin Lent.

      Covered in snow!!!! [sigh] Someone told us the Farmer’s Almanac indicates we’re supposed to get 30 inches in March!! Oh I hope not! Makes me afraid to hear what it says for April. LOL

  12. cathy says
