Snowy Friday

We have been freezing our tail feathers off this week in SW Virginia.  It has been below freezing everyday this week and today they are calling for more snow.  Not a lot, 1-4".  Enough to send everybody and their brother to the grocery store for toilet paper and milk!

Last weekend my sister and I celebrated our Birthdays!  She was born of January 20th and I was born on January 22.  5 years and two days apart.

Not the greatest photo of her but I think she was happy with her 1970's green chip and dip set that she wanted.  I also got her a Susan Branch recipe book, and an olive oil dispenser.  She got me some seed starting medium, a Tammy Doll dress pattern, and the most incredible cake carrier ever!  I will get photos of it up next week.  It deserves it's own post!  And it has a funny story to go with it!
(Can you spot what I pulled out of the barn in the background of this photo???  Hint.  it was mine when I was little and has been stored for about 40 years..It will get it's own separate post too.)

Cold weather doesn't stop Yngwie from fishing!  He caught this nice bass last weekend!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Your DOLLHOUSE?????? How fortunate you still have yours. I wish I had mine. I've been looking lately on ebay and such. I saw one I liked, but I'm sure the bids will go way too high for my pocketbook. Can't wait to see your post on it!!! :)

That sweet little girl with the roses all around her is so cute!!! I love things like this.
Happy Birthday. I was also born on Jan 22 and my sister was born on the 17th.
I see your dollhouse back there. What a treasure! It's wonderful that you could celebrate with your sister. I got to have both my sisters close for three days. We had a blast!
