 A few small changes to bring a little life into the washed out gray light of  winter.
 A purple ribbon, from a gift, as a little nod to Lent...preparing the way for Easter and Spring.
Displaying a beautiful embossed glass candle, a gift from Kris and Doug and Sweet p.  Happy Birthday dear Doug. Doug and Kris and Sweet p. made some big changes this year, and I am so glad that included coming to Chicago! It's been amazing having them close.
 Can't wait to have flowers to press from my garden.  From Elizabeth, my generously kind SIL.
 It's been a while since we thrifted.  I found two treasures, this vintage scale and an old enameled coffee pot.
 Oi how I miss my camera!
The coffee pot is stained inside, and a little rough on the outside.  It was filled with foam and moss.  I saw it's pure vintage beauty.
 It will be a long time before a warm up.  Our local weather guy says that until the Great Lakes thaw, the cold is here to stay for a while.  I look outside and try to think warm thoughts...
My warm thought for today...I am nearing my 1,000th post! Seems like I started yesterday, but it will be five years on March 2nd since my very first post.    More on that soon. Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy this beautiful day.

Love your window/wreath vignette. Can't believe Easter's right around the corner. You're lucky to have found that scale. I wanted one so badly a few years ago I bought one for myself on ebay! The coffee pot's a keeper, too:) Stay warm.
