MR. PURA VIDA

We do get snow from time to time in our northern most location of Texas
and from time to time we will get huge blizzards, which most generally means that we have wind to accompany our snow

this blizzard brought us 19"
in one day

Today we are hosting a dinner party for 
my bff's mother's sorority
GAMMA GAMMA

in addition to shoveling sidewalks for these dear ladies during his lunch hour
(some of who lived in our garage apartment as newly weds)
Mr. PV thought it might be kind of fun to welcome them with 

a ....

here I am...toasty warm inside taking photos of a ....

very sweet thing!

I did select her outfit

I have every table I have "set"
we were planning to go to Amarillo for
new bowls, fresh roses, groceries
nope
the roads are still closed in some places

so I went to  Alco and bought bowls that match nothing I have
for $1.50 each

and I cut my ferns

and put them in old prayer candle jars of water 

and dug out the old pottery
and put on a pot of soup

we can't wait to see you sweet ones!

What do you mean it doesn't match? The bowls look great on that tablecloth.

19" in one day - wow!!! You'll be digging out forever. Maybe you can put something green on the snowlady for St. Patrick's Day or will it melt by then?

Have fun at your party.
