We are still quite buried in snow...another 6 inches fell yesterday..but, the red winged blackbirds, and the grackles have returned! I know Spring is near!! I like the idea of you sharing some of your powerhouse recipes here:)) You must be full of energy:) The babies looks always! I do wish you would have an Etsy shop update:) Those indigo pouches are looking great!
Oh Margie...Your post today was just like visiting an old friend..I have not been as present in blogland recently because OUR littlest grandchildren moved home in December:) The little doll you made for Lili is so inspiring:) I especially love her braided hair!!! As always Lili is just glowing..and your pictures are beautiful!!! GOOD FOR YOU with the healthy eating so far! Your dishes look like something from a gourmet restaurant:) Hugs to you....and yours:)

Such lovely sentiments on SNOW!!!! It makes my heart happy that your wishes have all come true!!!Here in Upstate NY we have had an unbelievably snowy winter...The Tug Hill Plateau where I live has already had over 15 feet fall so far!!! Currently, I have a solid 4 feet in my yard, so I cannot honestly say that snow is making me happy! I hope the SNOW GODS can direct the snow to fall more for you...and just a bit less for us:))) And...tell Andy I feel for him! I am a nurse also...We have fun at work though, and we all bring TONS of food when the storms are expected!

Here..the oven is in constant use...SHOULD concentrate on healthier goodies, but soft pretzels, casseroles and breads are filling our bellies!! Stay warm my friend!

I live in Upstate NY, and we have had a RIDICULOUSLY snowy winter...On Jan 8th, our little town in Adams, NY received almost 5 feet of snow in a 36 hour period...less than a week later, temps were in the 50's, and now we are experiencing flooding..It is cold again today..and it is once again snowing! You should visit the Tug Hill Plateau someday..It is one of the snowiest places on Earth!!! Apparently, we get even more snow than Utah and Colorado! Average snowfall for our season is over 200 inches:)!

She looks PRECIOUS:) It suits her too a "T":) My Mom was not a real crafty person, but I remember one winter, when times were pretty rough for us, she somehow made my 2 sisters and I "Scarfhats" for Christmas...they were knit with a peaked hood...I can remember opening it, and being AMAZED...that MY MOM knit it for me:) I loved it so much...Lilith and Lachlan are going to have so many treasures from you Margie...Well done:)
