Red Cake Tin

See our huge snow!  LOL!  We got enough to coat the grass and cause the schools to close.  By Saturday afternoon, it was mostly melted.  This was taken from the front of our office at work.

As I have said before, every Sunday evening while I am getting things together for the up coming week, I always check  There I can find any sales that I may be interested in, in our area.  Week before last I saw this sale that looked very interesting because there was a cool red cake tin shown in the photo and it was only about 2 miles from work.  I could easily find an excuse to be out when this sale opened at 9:00!  Well I got there at 9:30 and the cake tin was  GONE! I was so disappointed.  I glanced around the rest of the stuff and low and behold there stood my sister who can work from home and she was at the sale too.  I asked her what she was buying but she just grinned and said she couldn't say.  Just this and that.

Imagine my surprise on my Birthday when I opened my gift from my sister and found this!
The red cake tin!  I had mentioned I was interested in it when I had talked with her on the phone but never thought she would beat me to the sale and buy it for me!  Isn't it the cutest one you have ever seen?  Red and white with a cart of flowers...

I have the best sister!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

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!

Well we finally got some snow in Southtown!  Just a few inches in town and absolutely none in the boonies where I live.

I seem to be having a bit of trouble getting my crafting mojo going again.  But last night I got busy and made my Valentine for Paintin' Patti's swap and it is ready to go!

This weekend is me and my sister's Birthday weekend!  We have always celebrated together as we are five years and 2 days apart!  Our family is getting together at my house and we are having Chili and cornbread and Baked Potato Soup and Salad.  Yum-Yum! 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
