Snowed in but optimistic

The weather here has been absolutely brutal.  The snow’s been on the ground since November and temperatures are often way below zero, not to mention the gusting winds. On some days though, it is beautiful.

Needless to say, I’ve stayed indoors  a lot – unless I’m walking the dogs or taking pictures, that is.

I’ve kept myself busy making jewelry, soups, bread and dreaming of Spring.

    Great photos!! I like snow, but these negative temperatures are too much for me… It amazes me how tiny songbirds flutter about regardless of the weather.

    I love the shapes you have made with the copper earrings, your handmade jewelelry is beautiful and i like the combination of the copper with the semi-precious stones in your other jewelelry designs. If you have to stay inside what better way to spend your time than making beautiful jewellery
