This has been a fascinating beginning to the new year. The incredible weather has been affecting most of us. I hope this extreme cold will pass for all soon! Aren’t you excited about all that 2014 has in store? I am! I do greatly apprecite you all participating in Home and Garden Thursday.

Here are the posts I shared with you last week:
