In Case you Were Wondering.......

Good day everyone~ A couple of people have been wondering why I still have 'snow' falling on my blog when it is now the middle of June!

One reason I created my blog was so that I could have an avenue to express myself. There are times when you visit that you will find me sharing about my family, my home, and my collections. Other times I will share my faith and every once in a while, my dreams.

You see, I like to use my imagination! I believe God has the greatest imagination of all and He has created within each one of us, an imagination of our very own. We are all unique in our own special way and it's how we use our imaginations that speaks of who we are.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved playing house and when I got married, I brought that same love into my marriage. You're never too old to play house!! I loved tea parties, colouring books and crayons, dolls and critters. I loved fairies and flowers and anything that glittered, sparkled, or twinkled. I loved the world of make-believe and all the romantic fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. I still love those things today and I still have that little girl living inside of me. Every once in a while, that little girl shares what is on her mind; be it ever so fanciful!

Most people, especially women, are of the opinion that men never grow up; that inside of every man is a little boy waiting to get out. Well, I happen to believe that we women also have a little girl living inside of us. We just express it differently than our male counterparts.
Some of us express ourselves through gardening, while others through decorating, writing, or collecting things. Still others like having babies and making a home for their families. We all have our unique ways of expression and it is all good!
You see, the 'snow' is not snow at all! It is really a delicate fairy dust fluttering down, reflecting the sunlight or moonlight, adding a bit of whimsy to my blog. It reminds me of miniature white rose petals gracefully floating down, making it look fun and pretty. If you use your imagination, you can almost see the fairies dancing amidst it all. It keeps my blog from being too serious which I often have the tendency to be.

So, now you know! I am loving the whimsical touch the fairy dust brings to my blog. Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to go take a nap in a little pink rosebud. I will dream of fairies dressed in pink, and dancing amidst the warm breezes where soft white rose petals swirl and float in a fragrant garden. Have a wonderful and fanciful day everyone!




  1. The delicate fairyland touches you share with us all are soothing, peaceful & delicate ... to magically be touched by the fairy dust of imagination far away ...

    I love your exquisite creation of your blog. TY for sharing. You have a special touch ...

  2. Your sharing is wonderful! I to believe somewhere inside us, there still is that little girl. I remember what my dear father said not to many months before he died at 83, "We never get old in our hearts",I believe that and to be honest with you, I like it! I am thankful I found your blog!

  8. Just so all you lovely ladies know; I'm keeping the fairy dust! I'm glad you like it!

    Blessings on you all,

  9. very sweet and i agree that a blog is such a personal expression that you should do what makes you happy.

    (sometimes i think that blogging is actually playing in disguise! it's so fun!)


  10. I didn't know it was snow but then I live in Florida and we haven't seen snow since 1993. Snow or Fairy Dust, it makes your blog unique. As my kids would say "You have a big imagination" and that is quite a compliment. Love your blog.

  11. Hi Sandi,
    So enjoyed this post, and I agree totally, I know there is a little girl that still resides inside of me .I love your fairy dust. Enjoy you day.

  12. I knew it was fairy dust....when you believe, you can tell the difference!

  13. Come to think about it, I had been wondering about that snow. Now, I'm wondering about you (just teasing, just teasing). "To each his own."

  14. Hello Sandi, I never wondered that because I love snow. I loved clicking here just to see the flakes falling. I'm even happier to know that they are magic sprinkles. I love this post so very much. I feel like I've gotten to know you even more w/every word you've written here. I love all the things you've share and we have a lot in common. I'm so very glad we are "friends"

    Love you!

  15. what a beautiful post Sandi I just love the fairy dust you have got going there... & for those that asked why you still had *snow* going on in summer... down under it is winter & although where I live we do not get snow it is still apt for us...

    Have a great weekend
