Mark & Marie

A first Valentines Day
in the new home for
Mark & Marie!
Mark brought Marie some
gorgeous flowers, a heart
shaped box of gourmet
chocolates &
a surprise gift.
Marie spent the afternoon
baking Mark's favorite
double layer chocolate
cake with butter cream
frosting and of course she
added a rose on top.
He also has a surprise gift
to unwrap.
They are so in love &
spend some time enjoying
some slow dancing
together whispering &
giggling to each other.
The evening ends with
a little romance.

What A Gift To Be A Nana

Even on the worst of
cold winter days, and no
matter what is going on in
my life , this little guy can
put a smile on my face &
make me think of nothing
else but him.
I was a lucky Nana to have my
grand baby boy for a
sleep over last weekend.
What a doll. We slept in his big
boy bed together which was filled
with toys. We also slept with the night
light on so you know who got more
sleep than Nana.
And this is the next morning ,
still surrounded by toys,
watching something wonderful on
TV I guess
because he was so mesmerized that he
hardly paid attention to his green pop
that Nana handed to him.
So innocent & content
and not a care in
the world . I love it !

Not A Fairy Tale Post !

A couple of nights ago at 2:30 a.m.
My husband and I woke to
a very loud and scary noise of
glass beaking.
You can see that at the top
of my roof line we lost
half of our ice dam.
And when this massive and very heavy
piece of ice decided to fall part
of it came crashing through
my office/craft room window !

This is what it looked like after I

lifted a chunk of ice that measured

about 12" x 12" x 8" and through it

back outside through the broken

window and ripped screen.

After I cleaned up all the glass

I hung out the window and

threw as many big chunks of ice

off of the roof as I

could to take the weight

off of my balcony roof.

There have been so many houses

and barns here and

businesses to that have had

roofs caving in !

This part also happend at 2:30 a.m.

The large rectangular

chunk of ice you see laying on the

ground hit my car on the

way down and left a

nasty dent by my headlight.

Another piece shattered the winshield on

my husband's company vehicle.

It hit so hard that it left an actual

hole in the windsheild & also

cracked his dashboard.

I am soooooo thankful that nobody

was out in my driveway when this

ice let go.

To add a little more icing to the cake......
My adorable little shop
Trinkets & Treasures
has had major leaking problems
since this severe winter weather
has started. Many days I have
arrived at my shop to find a mess.
May things have been water
damaged and now alot of items
are just mushed to the center
of the floor away from the leaky area.
A piece of the ceiling fell in
just the other day.
Needles to say I will be
moving my shop soon !
I found another cute little shop
just 2 miles down the same road.
I have much work ahead of me.

Sun kissed Orange Soap !

After one too many snow

storms I have been in need

of something to remind me

of warm weather so I

decided to make some citrus

scented soap.

Sun Kissed Orange !

I'll be selling it in my shop

but I did keep a bar for myself.

This yummy soap has a creamy
mango butter base & is
scented with a rich
orange essential oil .
I've added some freshly
grated zest of orange too.
It's the perfect aromatherapy for a
cold winters day.
