It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood....

Of course, not MY neighborhood, but I'm certain it's beautiful in SOMEONE's neighborhood.

You see, this morning I woke to discover that something connected to our sprinkler system (yes, I'm that techinical that I don't even know it's name) froze and broke last night.  Oh, but that's not all.  It seems, it froze and broke and created a stunning GUYSER that shot water waaaaay into the sky. Nope, that still isn't all.  It seems that all this freezing and breaking and guyser-ing occurred in the late hours of last night or wee hours this morning resulting in a small lake outside our home.  I'm not certain, but I think it's fair to say that the neighbors are not pleased that we turned their homes into lakefront-property without their permission. lovely husband and I have been slogging through the ice and snow and mud most of the day and I'm finally inside for good, ready to thaw out.

Despite my cold outsides, my heart is still nice and warm, so I'm giving away a fantastic freebie from the wonderful ladies over at My Life and Scrap.  It was created using the Mega Collab kit Home is Where the Heart Is.  Isn't it beautiful!?

I hope your weekend is better, and warmer, than mine has been so far.  Have a great one!


  1. Great freebie. Sorry about the water front property.

  2. Oh Stef that is terrible! My kids have always wanted to flood the yard for a hockey rink. I am guessing it is one of those things that is better in theory than reality.

  3. I bet that the ice art was beautiful! Sorry about the flood!
