Ornament Thursday- Poinsettia Madness

It’s Ornament Thursday again!  Being that it is December we are suppose to bring you ornaments.  While I had every intention of learning to make blown ornaments this year, for various reasons it just never happened.  I did however make a bunch of poinsettia glass treasures.  So did my hubby Greg.

Here are a few marbles.  Both Poinsettias.

I didn’t believe…

Really, I didn’t.  In fact I mocked the weather forcast.  Greg said, “look it’s says it’s going to snow.”

I said.  “Ya right.”  Whatever.

Yesterday morning, I was woken up my my dear hubby at 6:30 am.  Ya, you read that right.  I don’t get up at 6:30.  Ever.  Try between 8 and 9.  It did snow and it was sticking to the cars.  So I had to take pictures to prove to you it snowed right?  (I live in South East Louisiana.  It just doesn’t snow here, or so I thought.)

By 7am our power was out.  Knocked out my a tree limb across the street.

By 10 am, the house and property looked like this:

Pretty right?  ya, I thought so too.  Except I was freezing!  I spent all day wrapped up in bed under the blankets.  Having no heat sucks.  It finally came back on at 11 pm last night.  Thank fate.

So we still have snow and it looks like this today:
