Catching Up Is Hard To Do

I have put things off for so long that I have no idea whatsoever of how and where to begin ~ so I'll just jump in! I am so grateful for all of you that visit and comment on my blog. I will try to do better about visiting and commenting in return. There are days when I have so much to do, deadlines to meet, a home and family to tend to, that I think "when I finally sit down to rest I will catch up on blogging...", and something else comes up. And the longer I wait, the harder it is to back track and visit everyone. Another problem is that when I do start visiting and commenting, I enjoy it so much and lose track of time. Does that happen to any of you?

Several of my friends have chosen to bestow upon me various fun and sweet awards such as You Make My Day, Name 5 Weird Things About Myself, etc. Sylvia, Lorraine, Doreen, Nancy, Roxi, Cathy, and Lidy (and a few more that I can't remember, it's been so long...) ~ would you mind if I awkwardly bow out this time? We'll wipe the slate clean and I'll start fresh? And again.... I will try my best to stay caught up from here on out.

Can you believe it? We got snow again! I was so excited when I woke up and saw it... and it continued to snow throughout the day yesterday. I've tried posting photos twice, but get an error. I'll see if I can add the snow photos later today.


This little tufted titmouse flew into the French doors and was stunned for just a few minutes ~ just long enough for my daughter to hold him and let me take a photo of it's sweet face.

Check back on the 14th ~ I'll have lots of new 19th century inspired watercolors and May baskets to share!

Have a beautifully blessed day!

  5. OH thats amazing! Catching a bird in your own house! Did you design a craft after him/her? Haha.
    I am so mixed up...did you order the ironstone bowl and millinery flower? I know it came in an email...not a comment but I can't find either. AND...your website is just gorgeous. Who designed it?

  11. Hi Lana, I always enjoy reading your blog ...whenever you find the time to update it. I do understand about losing track of time. Like you, I can't believe we've had actual snow 3 times since Christmas. It must be some kind of record. I'm really ready for spring... and it has come early to Charm & Grace.

    Blessings,
    Christi
