Wednesday Morning Bliss

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Ok I wanted to share some photos and it seems the only way to do it in quantity is with a blog. Waking up this morning after yesterday thaw was not so much a shocker as a disappointment. I am so over winter and waiting on sunshine and grass to show up.

With that said it was still pretty amazing to look around and see all the snow. So here goes...a few Wednesday morning photos.

My Art Studio way to cold to paint in right now.

A little something I picked up this weekend at the Horse Expo I visited last Saturday. It's a mail box ... a very heavy cast iron mail box. I want to put it at the front of the road but think my mail lady is not that good of a driver. She has taken down many of a mail boxes over the years. So now I am contemplating mounting it at the base of my steps just for show.

Here is a close up of the horse figure on top of it. You have to see the next picture that I took this morning. It's like this was made for me.

This is a photo I captured of our young stallion Tazz running this morning. Almost a perfect match to the mail box. I LOVE IT ...both box and horse.

I purchased this statue also......of cast iron covered in automotive bronze so it will not rust or damage in outdoor weather. Again I am not sure where I will mount it but I will find a place. Just could not pass it up.

If you look close it almost looks wood carved but its solid heavy metal. I saw other wonderful pieces also but just could not afford them....these two almost broke the bank.

Ok...that's it for now. I could show you pictures upon pictures, but you would get board and just refuse to look at any more of my we will keep it short and sweet.

Have a wonderful Wednesday full of March Madness.

    I enjoyed looking at your pictures and since you love horses the mailbox and the statue of the majestic horse were perfect purchases for you and your Ranch. Since you're no longer on the Team I had no idea you had written a recent blog. I can't believe how much snow you're still getting there. That's one thing we never get here. It would be fun to have a week or two of snow here but with my bad knees and back I'd be home bound almost all Winter there as it would be really hard to get around with my cane (and knee & back pain). You do live in Beautiful Country with a fantastic Ranch & House. Wishing Spring arrives there for you very soon. Take good care.

    Hugs & Love,

    Joanna! Absolutely LOVE the mailbox! I wouldn't put it out at the end of the road, would be too afraid something would happen to it! We have a lot of vandalism with mailboxes, especially out in the country, where we have always lived. It would look so nice mounted on your porch.

    The bronzed horse head reminds me of the Driftwood horses, very artistic us of metal in your case! Never have seen anything like it before! The inside of your house looks a lot like the inside of mine! Lots of horses of every size and shape! Also, the snow pictures are very beautiful, but I know that you are sick of it by now!
    Sending you sunshine! emoticon

    I love to look at the snow. Just as long as I don't have to drive on it. We've had our fair share in OH this year too. To me the best part is early in the morning when it's still quiet and there are no tracks in it yet. I turn my mare out and she runs just like your stallion. Absolutely loves it. Wish I could get some good pictures.

    Love all the horse stuff. We are so over winter too. I am ready to see green instead of white but it doesn't look like that will happen for awhile. Vehicles are still driving on the lake.

    Look at all the snow. It made me shiver. I like snow, but you guys have had more then your fair share. Love the mail box. I'm with you, put it by the front of your house to keep it safe lol. Tazz looks like her is having fun. Beautiful picture.
    The statue is interesting. The teeth look so real. Once you get it posted, take another pic of it. Sounds like a fun day!
