Glimpses of Home

We didn't use the gas logs at all last winter and not too much this winter. A recent cold, wet day was a good opportunity to enjoy the fire, with a cup of dark hot chocolate.



A thoughtful gift from a sweet daughter. A Primrose.   She is 4 months pregnant and was experiencing morning sickness all day long this past week.  Even so, she went to the trouble to think of me...


I've been on a candle burning binge lately. I have been pulling out all the candles that had accumulated and burning them in all kinds of containers. This one is stuck down inside a container that previously held an apple cinnamon candle that had been completely burned.


Some recent quilting.   A small dream accomplished.  Being able to quilt swirls.


Valentine Roses.   I am spoiled often around here.


Mama's African Violet.  I turned it around and found the side that had been facing the window to be full of blooms, even up under the bottom of the leaves.



More pictures of the Primrose.



Its Monday again. Another work week. The last week in February. Time marches on....

I love all your flowers. I am so sick of winter and we are still dealing with snow, ice and gray days so I'm living vicariously through your flowers! lol

Yes, time is truly marching on, isn't it? I love that your mom's violet is blooming so pretty these days. It's like a little 'good morning' from your mom! Glad you enjoyed your gas logs this year. We rarely use ours either, but they are nice to have when the notion strikes! Have a great day!!

That was sweet of your daughter to think of you. Primroses are so cheerful aren't they! Love the little quilt and the glimpses of your home.
