Hurry Spring...

I am really anxious for this nasty, cold, icy and snowy weather to be over for the year.
For one thing, it keeps me inside....I not only don't drive in this weather (I had to do that
for so many years that I just don't anymore)...I also don't try to maneuver the sidewalks
and parking lots more than I absolutely have to.  One slip and there goes a hip!!

What I'm most anxious to get out and do is...go thrifting!  I LOVE thrift shops...especially for
the frames I like to use with my smaller paintings.  These frames usually have so much more
'character' than the frames I can find in the art supply shops.  Every now and then, during the
warmer weather, my wonderful neighbor has 'endless' yard sales.  He's an elderly widower
that likes to go to estate auctions then bring the stuff he buys and have a yard sale.
I have found so many really wonderful frames from these sales.

Yes...I'm anxious for spring to hurry and get here...the walls are beginning to close in.

I know what you mean, I feel the walls closing in on me at times too. Hoping spring is not far around the corner. Happy frame hunting.

I'm with you! I think I'm changing from a fall and winter person to a fall and early spring person. We did have a lovely morning here today, complete with yellow in the sky! Wow...

I do have to get out in this weather and I hate it. The news is calling for snow tonight.
Spring can't be far off.

I hear you about Spring getting here in a hurry! I am so sick of seeing mounds of dirty snow covering everything.

What my wife and I use to avoid slips on the ice are Yaktrax. They slip over boots/shoes fairly easily and give good traction on ice.

I love vintage frames! I've gotten some really cool ones at auctions too! Stay warm!!
