Spring Snow

 Well even though we are coming off of spring break this morning and will return to finish out the school yr. in the morning, we have had a beautiful snowfall. We woke up to the trees covered in a powdery frosting.
 The old vintage chairs have a new wet cushion of snow. I love how the iron trim around the birdbath looks!
 The galvanized chicken feeder on the patio table has a snow white topper.
 No need to worry about that mower seeing any work today!
 I enjoy watching the squirrels use this old apple ladder to scamper up the tree. It would be a slick one today.

 This is a rain chain off my deck, this morning it is collecting crystal flakes.
 A chilly dream this would be this morning. I love how the snow is sticking to the old gate.
Well I am so ready for spring I can hardly stand it. And honestly didn't think we'd see snow again this season. But I am thankful I was able to be home inside my warm house to see it and not have to get out. The birds have enjoyed a bountiful tray of seed on the deck and the temps are already clearing the roads. So I will enjoy it for today and dream of warm temps and that beautiful sunshine.

 Ok, I spotted these almost a yr ago in an alley. This week I found the owner at her business and ask her if she wanted to sell them. $5 bucks bought all three of them. I brought two of them up to the porch. Cleaned them off. Let them dry!
 I love the patina they have collected all this time in the outdoors!
 I saw this idea on Funky Junk Interiors blog site. I attached them to the wall and added a few things. I know I will change it out, take things away and add more things but I thought Id blog about it today!
 I had this old frame. I added some twine and a few old pictures.
 A few odds and ends.
 A few kiddos I don't know.

I love this old message board, thanks Donna for the great idea!!
