I volunteered at Multnomah Falls today with my sister Denise. It's *COLD* and the wind is blowing fiercely! We have the famous "East Wind" here and it blows like crazy down through the Columbia River Gorge. It gusted to 85 mph at Vista House this week. The falls freeze every winter and it gets really pretty. This is the beginning - it will get a lot icier! They're also predicting some snow here. Winter has arrived.
The photo below is walking up towards the falls.The Benson Bridge and the lower falls and the pool at the bottom.. the ice is closing in.
Another shot of the Bridge.
When it gets icier it builds up..
Heading back to the Visitor Center.
I've been picking up a few new doll house things to add my own personal touch to my house - below is a cake plate and candlesticks.. aren't they cute?
I also got a trunk to decorate the attic which is empty and bare. Isn't this adorable? See the little gold key in the top tray? It's papered inside with vintage look paper - now I have to find some "attic" stuff to put in it. I also want to get a vintage looking dress form. What else would you think should be in the attic?
How cute is this?
I need some brighter light to get a photo of the new things in the dollhouse.I've also purchased a baby grand piano, a spinning wheel, a sewing box and a few sewing baskets, some pewter things - bowl, charger, candlesticks, chamberstick, pitcher and 2 mugs. Coming soon will be a little Cairn Terrier for the porch. :-)
My pretty kitty was on my lap yesterday and I got a photo of her. Awww.. have you heard this song on the Big Bang Theory?
Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of Fur.
Happy Kitty, Sleepy Kitty, Purr purr purr.
Is it stuck in your head now? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
