An Artist in the Family

DH's great grandmother was an artist. We have several of her pictures. Using the dates I know I date this late 1800's to early 1900's. DH remembers this one hanging in his grandfather's basement. Please join Suzanne at Coloradolady to view more vintage thingie thursday posts.

Hurry,Hurry it's melting fast!!

These fun photos of animals in the snow were taken before 9am (eastern). By noon the snow is 80 percent gone. Heavily wooded and shaded areas are the last to give up their cloak of white. This is a view from our front steps. Then DH found some of the chickens exploring. Toby or Tobias Midnight had a ball of fun in the snow. This is the dog you have to force out in the rain. I think with his ears flat out and tail erect he looks like a airplane! LOL I have several cats. Doodle is one of the outside cats and the only one I could get a shot of with head up and facing me. He is quite a handsome fella but can be a bully!
