Ready for Spring

Pic~ 41
Spring has got to be around the corner which means the snowflakes will be stored away and the spring blooms will be making their presence soon! This particular snowflake hangs on one of the drawers of a hutch in my dinning room. It holds many of my favorite dishes that once belonged to my Grandmother Bolen.

Korean Wooden Dolls

I have these little wooden dolls in my great grandmother's curio cabinet. They were my mother-in-law's from the 1950's during the Korean conflict. Dad gave them to me after her passing nine years ago. I so wish I knew the "story" of how she came about these little guys. The two larger ones to the left and right, have bobble heads and all are stamped on the bottom with "Korea". I love photos with color and these seemed perfect to photograph for my daily blog pic. My in-laws were missionaries in Korea for a time and Mother had many stories she shared during her time over there with two small children. They are special to me as they remind me of her. The symbol means "doll" in Korean.

Missouri Blizzard 2011

The first huge snowfall/blizzard hit northern Missouri today and here are a few pics taken around 4:30pm. The drifting and blowing snow is a real problem right now. I don't think we will be getting out till Thursday. The drifts in the front and back are at about two least in the areas I could get to.
