2010 Day After Christmas blizzard

Ipswich, Ma - The Day after Christmas we were hit with a blizzard.

We kept watching the sky like little kids. It was really gray out, and we waited most of the day before it started snowing.
The snow was powdery and fine. We had huge gusts of wind, too.

It snowed all afternoon and into the night. It was s
till snowing the next day. We didn't get as much snow as predicted. I think we were supposed to get 20 inches all told. We might have gotten 10 inches, but with the drifting it seemed like more.

All our windows were blasted with snow. I took a series
of photos looking out from inside, and from outside of the house, too. Some of the patterns were interesting, and I like the way the snow looks like a frame in some of the pics.

This was a picture I took looking out our front door right after the storm. The trees by the house were heavy with snow.

It took us four hours to shovel out, but my son did most of the shoveling. My house is on a corner so when the plows come by the driveway gets buried. It didn't seem too cold out even though it was 27 degrees and very windy.

I'm now making Eco-Chic creations!!!

I'm so excited to tell you about my new creative adventure.

You know how much I love making jewelry - well, recently I've added a new line to my designs! It's called ReStyle Studios and I now upcycle jeans, tee shirts and other clothing into fabulous jewelry.

I make necklaces, bangles, cuff bracelets, purses and more.
I'm also starting to use beautiful lace in my creations. It's facinating and addicting to be able to take something old and unwanted and turn it into a new creation! Please check out my new etsy site. It's in it's infancy, but soon I'll have lots of trendy and eco-chic items for you to choose from.


Please, let me know what you think. Many Thanks

Mackworht Island, Maine

Today was a perfect 10 weather wise. No humidity! It sure makes a difference when the humidity is low - It was about 81 degrees and I didn't mind it at all. It was sunny and breezy, too. Just beautiful.

Kevin and I decided to go exploring. We went to Mackworth Island, Maine, right off of Portland. There is a causeway out to the island so you can drive there.

When we arrived the friendly fellow (Ron) at the gatehouse said we were in luck - there were only three parking spaces left. So we parked and then started off on the path around the island. There are several places where you can go down to the shore. At some points it was a steep drop down to the water.

We were surprised at how few pine trees there were especially on the edge of the island. The island is truly lush with trees though. There is also a school for the deaf and hearing impaired on the island.

Below are my photos from today's jaunt.
