First White Wednesday

It's still snowing.....

Well, at least Tuffy is having some fun in it! She actually does like to play in this wet, cold stuff.
I tried to make a little snowman for you, but the snow is to powdery. Great for skiing, not so much for making snow people.  So I got busy with the camera to take pictures so I could play along with Kathleen's White Wednesday party.  After yesterdays rather lengthy post, I'm a bit talked out so today I'll be your quiet tour guide and let you just browse. 

 This frame is purposely empty. Isn't it gorgeous!! It has stunning Austrian Crystals and pearls all around and even in the clips on the back. It's waiting to be filled with the picture of my new Grandbaby due in March !!! Nana is trying to contain herself as she writes this, really!!

 Speaking of Grandbabies, the new Baby's Big Brother, Jackson (1 year old at the time), painted this picture for my birthday last year. See the creative talent he has!! It runs in the family I tell ya'.

And just for fun, how about a look back to last spring and summer to remember what is yet to come...

ah, can't you just feel that fragrant spring breeze..... 
The End! 


Linking up for Linky parties with Frugalicious Friday and Vintage Inspiration Friday, Show and Tell Friday and Feathered Nest Friday. So be sure to go and mingle with these other creative ladies as well!


  1. It looks so pretty. I especially like the monogrammed "E" on the back of the chair. Is that a brooch? It's lovely, as it all is!

    have a great day!

  2. I love your white vanity and crochet pieces. I see you have some snow...I have a friend just south of Nashville and she's been sending me photos...I'm in Minnesota...pretty common here. Enjoy the snow and happy White Wednesday!

  3. Love the frame and I can't believe your a Nana from your picture you sure don't look old enough!

  4. Welcome to White Wednesday! Watch out, it's addictive! :-) I can't believe you are a Nana either-you look WAY too young. Hope to see you back next week.


  5. Oh I love all of your whites, and your "little" ones painting is just wonderfully displayed (ditto on the Nana part too :) Isn't fun to be a Nana though? I too feel like I lived many different lives before arriving where I am now. Which at times has me scratching my head on just exactly where am I now??
    Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I will definitely be back, I am a follower.

  6. your white pieces are beautiful....isn't being a nana fun??

  9. Hello fellow Nashvillian!! I like your summertime table setting outside and the big sunflowers. What is in the pitcher that's blue with a lemon on top? Curiosity. It looks refresshing. Thanks for stopping by my blog Mel's Cabin.

  10. Hey Ellen,
    I love your framed dried flowers, so whimsical and cute...It is funny how dogs seem to just adore the snow...I think our girl who is half chow misses it since we moved from NC to FL.

    Thank you for stopping by to see the fields getting prepped for spring...Not much longer now :).

    Stay warm, Blessings Kelsie

  20. Ellen; Thank you so much for stopping by my blog this week and leaving comments! Wow, who would have ever thought - snow in Nashville! It must be kind of neat for you though since it's so unusual. I wish I was feelin' those spring breezes, but we've got a ways to go up here in New England I'm afraid! I'm going to follow you if I haven't already. Maybe you can stop back at my blog sometime and follow me back ;)


  21. I love the little lace slip you put on the chair - softens it up so nicely...the 'empty' frames are great.
