Valentines Sundae

Tasty looking...actually it is a bath bomb & bath salts in an Ice Cream Sundae dish!

I bought these bath fizzy bombs and loved them so much....
Probably because they reminded me of an Ice Cream Sundae....yum!

 I happened to have a box of these vintage Ice Cream Sundae Dishes....
new/old stock from an old drug store.
(actually the same drug store that I got the green pharmacy jars from....small world!)
The colors were so tasty looking and the scents were lovely...

Pear, Red Clover & Tea, Oatmeal Milk & Honey, Spearmint Rosemary,
Black Rasberry & Vanilla, Crystal Blue Waters, Lavender, etc. 

I added 4 ounces of bath salts to the bottom of the Ice Cream Sundae Dish

The green salts are Pearberry....de-lish
and the white salts are Cool Fresh Aloe

They also looked great displayed simply, in a decorative white dish

Have a Happy, Relaxing and Perfectly Lovely Valentines Day

Another Unbeliveably Beautiful Snow Storm

Upon returning home......we were hit with another snow storm
Different from the Virginia shore but just as beautiful in its' own way
I always make sure I feed my birds.  This large parrot cage makes a wonderful playground for my feathered friends.  They just love hopping in and out, on top of and around it. I haven't cleaned the snow out of it yet but the other feeder is quite active. 

The way the snow stuck to the bushes and trees was quite beautiful

My Barn looked very far away.........

I decided it was better to stay inside and watch my friends from the window....brrrrr

Our Candles Arrived Safe & Sound

Our candles arrived safe and sound with Linda at Lime in the Coconut
We are glad she is enjoying them
Check out her colorful and marauding lobsters

A Rare Virginia Shore Winter Wonderland

Walter and I are back from our trip to Virginia....a well needed rest

Here are some photos of a rare snowstorm on the
Eastern Shore of Virginia where we stayed
It was both scary and beautiful....the wind was fierce and boy was it cold

The wind was whipping...and where I was standing,
to take the photo, was a solid sheet of ice

The Sky was grey and hauntingly beautiful
It was sooooooo quiet....not a creature was stirring (except me)

The salt spray was drenching me....I wish you could hear the roar of the wind

Here's the sun glistening on the ice the next day

It was so breathtakingly beautiful.....I took so many photos
 that it's hard to choose which ones to show you
Then....all of a sudden the sun came out and it was gone....

The birds came out to play again
We left to go to the Antique Mall in Virginia, called
