more snow???!!! and a great find at Home Goods

I reached my quota for snow weeks ago.  
Another 8"-10" are on the way tonight.
: (
I am SO ready for Spring.

I found the perfect piece of furniture for my sun room
last week in my favorite Home Goods.
You know what that means, just what I wanted
but very reasonable.
This was just what I was looking for,
but not that day, which was why I found it!

So perfect for that spot!  It was marked down 50%
and love at first sight.  Pictures of it went soaring into
cyberspace for my daughter's, husband's and sister's
approval.  There were scratches & big nicks, but
a can of satin black enamel solved everything.

Hope your week  is happy!


  1. Uh Oh Carol! 13.33333 years off your life - - - better go check out my blog post yesterday to see why!


    Love your bright splash of "life" in the African Violets picture!

  2. Love the african violets! Very cute idea. I wish mine didnt die each time I got them.

  3. Very nice...I loved,tried to cultivate the past,violet but it failed:(

  4. It's beautiful Carol, so is the room you've put it in. I can see why you love the new furniture. stay warm, we may get a flurry tonite too, that is all I want though!! Diana

  5. Oh those violets look good, especially in view of all the snow around me. That is a nice looking piece of furniture. You did a great job. I wish I had a sun room, in fact I would just love to see some sun.

  6. They're actually primroses. I love to buy them this time of year!

  7. Hi Carol...

    Ohhh my...what a gorgeous cabinet! I certainly can see why and how it was "love at first sight"! It really is a beautiful piece and it sounds like you got a great deal on it to boot! I'm so happy for you, my friend! I love where you place it too! Ohh yes...I see all that beautiful blue and white glassware peeking very pretty! Ohhh...and all of your pretty primrose just makes me sigh! Lovely! I am yearning for spring as well!

    Well dear friend, thank you so much for sharing your new treasure really is beautiful! Also...thank you for stopping by today for a visit! I sooo enjoyed your sweet note, my friend!

  8. There's no way that you could have left that cabinet behind - it's perfect.
    I bought primroses on the weekend, to fill the pots on the veranda that had been full of cedar and pine boughs since Christmas. I can't wait for the rananunculus (spelling!)to be in the shops, as they are my favorite.

  9. Hi Carol,what a beautiful sun room...African violet is very nice.:))from Izmir have a nice day:))
