Snow Days

The last two days have been "snow days" here in South Carolina.  It is very unusual that we get as much snow and ice as we have had - probably the worst in 15 or 20 years.  Now I know that you all in the North would laugh at how incapacitated we become with a bit of snow here, but remember it happens so infrequently here that we don't have the resources for clearing the roads, etc.

Of course it's always exciting when it happens, and it is quite beautiful, but all in all, I'm ready for spring!  Still, I thought I would share a bit of what things have been like here.

My house on day 1 of the snow

Day 2 - more snow!

My driveway - you can't really see it because of snow!

The pasture in front of our house

My hubby - he loves snow!

Me bundled up - I'd rather be in the tropics!

"The Girls" - Maggie and Jenny - they're happy as long as they're with us!

Of course, I did get a few things accomplished inside as well - like working on what else - my jewelry.  And I re-photographed some old designs to give them a fresh look in my Etsy shop.  I'm sharing a couple of them below.

I call these earrings All My Heart Earrings.  They feature antique brass filigree hearts and clear pear shaped beads which I wire-wrapped onto the hearts.

These next earrings are true Deco Bling!  Beaded with aqua blue and hot pink crystals and antique brass filigree.  The second photo with the vintage woman image is from - I love her images since they fit so well with my vintage style jewelry!

Both of these earrings can be found in my Etsy shop.  

That's all for now ... hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day!



  1. Well, your husband and the dogs seem right at home in the snow, but I'm with you, I'd rather be in the tropics too. Your earings are beautiful. Glad you are getting something done in spite of the cold. I hope you get your wish for an early spring.

    1. Thanks so much Maggie. Definitely will be happier when spring gets here!

  2. Hi Irene, Your home is gorgeous and the snow very pretty till you have to drive in it. I agree with you, give me a warm place. We are heading into the 70's for the weekend here in Texas. So ready for it too.

    Your new creations are beautiful. Love the colors and so inspiring for springtime. Have a Happy Valentine's Day.

    1. Thank you Celestina. Wish it were in the 70's here, but I guess only a few more weeks and we will be getting some of that kind of weather. Have a great weekend!

  3. Pretty snow pictures and pretty earrings!! We got about 15 inches of snow in 2 days and another 1-3 inches are predicted for Monday night!!

    Thanks for visiting!!


    1. I cannot even envision 15 inches plus. Stay warm until spring! Thanks so much for visiting!
