HAPPY FEBRUARY

Good Morning Prim Folk,  yay!!!  January is history,  good riddance,  what a wicked cold snowy month it was.  I know here in Canada we are known for the cold winter months but wow!! it was a little to cold for so long,  also  the amount of snow that fell and fell.  Not that the beginning of February is any better but it's closer to Spring, I'll take it. Also loving the longer day light, so nice..................... Picked up the new March issue of Country Sampler so I spent yesterday cuddled up with it  enjoying sites of Spring and many wonderful primitive decorated homes, happy happy.  One of my favourite pastimes I enjoy, reading a good book or a great magazine with a cuppa and a yummy smelling candle burning.    This scent of the candle is Smoke House, has a pleasant smell of sweet wood smoke when burning.  My SIL bought the prim jar candle for me years ago when they took a holiday  to  Pennsylvania,  Amish country.    I love it and never wanted to burn it, I  would smell it every now and then but finally I decided to burn it and  oh my, smells so good................May you take the time to enjoy the simple things around you,  Tis a gift to be simple.........Warm Blessings Francine.

  4. Hi Francine - it's still pretty chilly here as well. It's minus 5 this morning. Brrr! But, spring is waiting in the wings, to make her grand entrance (in about two months, LOL). Have a great day!

  6. It's a great feeling when we know we aren't going anywhere to sit down with a good book or magazine, a beautiful scent of a candle burning, and maybe a few cut flowers or ivy to brighten up the room. The crackle of a warm fireplace or just peaceful quiet.........our home is our winter haven! But I'm looking forward to sitting under a flower covered arbor or trees in the summer! And for you a gorgeous lake! Blessings~~~Roxie

  15. Happy February..one month closer to spring! I like the flickering battery operated candles..most of the time the fragrance is overwhelming and we both get all stuffed up:(

  18. I do that too, don't want to burn certain ones then I finally thought, what the heck.
    We are suppose to get more snow tonight...grrrr..but I can smell Spring in the air. The sun was out all day today.

  19. It has been a winter, hasn't it Girlfriend?? I've stopped listening to the forecast....so, as far as I know, we're not in for a major storm this time around... ;o) I reckon Nod is pretty similar to Canada in some respects....and while spring may be only a little over a month away on the calendar, it will be a good long while in coming here....I shudder to think that March is usually our "snowiest" month....But, thankfully, our "coldest" month should be behind us. Happy, warm, February to you..... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  20. Well February is not starting out well in Pa., but bring it on.

    I was a little disappointed with the Country Sampler.

    Hugs

  21. I agree with you.. a nice candle and some quiet time reading or creating is what I love. The new issue was a bit disappointing..I think they are going in a different direction and slowly moving away from prims. More snow tonight into tomorrow. Yuk, Jannice
