The primulas below I picked up at Walmart for less then $1.50 each and they will bloom for quite awhile and then in spring I will plant them in the garden where they will last for years.It is so nice to have some spring color in the house this time of the year.
Hope you enjoy your weekend.

It is so windy here today it would almost blow you away! Schools are cancelled as there is some black ice as well as the high winds so it is best to be safe at home. We missed most of the snow that other places got though. Maybe you've noticed on P.E.I we talk a lot about the weather!
So enough for now and enjoy your day!
Maybe you remember the beautiful skating dress I got at the thrift store that fit my sweet little granddaughter Jessica.I had these feather angel wings and I thought why not try an angel photo.Fortunately,our sweet little angel loves to have her picture taken and behaved very angelically! I used natural light but it was an overcast day so the wings don't show as much as I would like so we will have to try again on a sunny day but still I thought these were pretty cute.
Someday soon these two little sisters will be big enough to fit in the dress so they can be little angels too.

Yesterday my husband and I(oh! the joys of business for self) went to Summerside(45 min. drive) to check out my favorite treasure shop---Coulson's Antiques & Used Furniture Store-- and bought a few treasures which I will share later. I did get another taupe wing back chair for $30. which is a perfect match for one I already had so they will look good together.I will show the photos soon.
Anyway,it is slowly going to warm up here and I am going to get out and enjoy a nice walk before I do some baking.
Hope you have a good day!

Island Living is a lovely magazine all about our very own Prince Edward Island -the people and places along with food etc. I think it is wonderful that we have our own magazine published bi-monthly showing how beautiful our Island really is. So we are proud to be featured in the issue coming out in a couple of months.I will share more with you then. They do have a web site if you would like to check them out at http://www.islandlivingpei.com/
Now for the photos I am sharing today I gathered a few vintage things and took a few pictures to share with you. I like how they turned out but then again I am easy to please!
I also want to tell you I won another award yesterday 'tickled pink 'from my friend in the pink slippers.This lovely lady has been blessed with six beautiful children and another one on the way.I know how busy she is as we also were blessed with seven beautiful children all of whom have grown up and flown from our nest.However ,we have many happy memories of that special time when all our children were young like her" little cupcakes." So take a few minutes and go and visit her at http://thepinkslippers.blogspot.com/ you will be glad you did.Thank you so much for thinking of me and I am passing it along to everyone on my blog list.
It is cold and sunny here today ,rain tomorrow,and cold again on Monday-strange weather! I hope you enjoy your weekend!
