It's been a long snowy winter!





+
I have lived in the Midwest my whole life and I can't remember a winter like the one we are having this year...the weather is so crazy that we even had lighting and thunder with high winds.  There was a few days in the 50's where the snow was all starting to melt and then the next day it will all freeze back again.  I have seen more people slipping and sliding  the last few days...kind of scary...if your the one falling. It will be really nice to see the white stuff all melt and opening up the windows to let a nice breeze in the house.

Doors

I have always be fascinated with a beautiful  door 


 
 
 

With the turn of the knob
 
 
 
    
 you walk into the doorway
 
 
 
 
       that opens up to all kinds of possibilities
my life right now is like these doors
I just have to pick which one to open.

VICTORIA MAGIC

google image


I have been thinking about where I get my love of the past, it might have been from my mother, for she was born in 1928 and had her children late in her mid 30's, so looking at all her pictures from the 40's and 50's I’m sure  it started then.  But one day during my lunch while waiting in line to pay for my salad I came across Victoria Magazine, I  picked it up and became total engrossed its it beauty, and it went home with me.   I will be honest the new version lacks the magic the older still holds. I even had a way of reading it, I would go through it one time, then put it down and then spend the next weeks going over it and absorbing all the beauty it had. This magazine was magic to me for it was my time to just dream of a simple time with great beauty.  I don’t have any of my old copies....when you move and keep moving stuff round things get pitched...but looking at this cover I might just start a new collection!..
