More snow





I would love to live in this cosy little hideaway, down a long lane with an orchard for sure and a stream ---just dreaming my dreams ----
Its really icy and Hunter Gatherer is working early am tomorrow and is concerned about the journey to work only under two miles but very bad road conditions when he came home at six.
Ben was unable to go for his respite weekend its forty miles away in St Austull hes not too dissapointed thankfully.
We were off to an auction tomorrow out in the sticks near Davidstow airfield but we will have to see
I have also been productive and painted some gold plaster of paris Cherub candlesticks in F@B old white they look fab ..they were in a £1 box from the last auction , a tarnished brass photo frame and a large pine ..now old white frame i plan to get some chipboard letters paint them and put a verse or something.. the background is red gingham , actually fablon you now the stuff used to line shelves bought in Lidl..i,m pleased with my efforts.
More tomorrow------x

Plants


The sun was shining ..and i had the urge to do some pot planting.we,ve been nursing plug plants for weeks ..lots of them !! but its been so rainy or i just wasn't motivated ! my Mum had a saying the spirit moved and so did I..so about thirty six pansies and primroses are now in their new home , still about another four shuttle trays eighteen in each tray to go maybe tomorrow if its dry ..I can recommend QVC on the telly they come as plugs and are always healthy and a very good price too.
Big Al is checking the weather and getting the cats in and ..its snowing!! its 11pm could be a pretty scene in the morning

We have snow

...How idyllic this little home looks...I can but dream..

Yes we have snow in England ! .towards London and up north much more than .in Cornwall we rarely have it for long ,
My hunter gatherer left home an hour today to travel a mile and half through hilly country lanes it was sheet glass under the snow he said it was a bit scary!!!.
Ben's day center was not opening nor most of the schools !! England goes into crisis when it snows and to invest money into resources for a few days a year .well it wont happen .. to you guys across the pond that have it all winter must wonder whats all the fuss ,? we could have more tonight or we could wake up and its all gone , some nice pics later ..
The wood burner was going flat out so well i just had to sit by it and do some crochet..i,m on flowers at the moment ,i have just finished a blanket for a baby arriving in July ,i love to do stripes and it gives it a modern look for a modern Mum to be.
My Daughter is going to New York on the 6 Th so hope flights will be OK shes just site seeing really and is quite excited shes there about a week ...
