My Week in Pictures: 2.8.13

Week in Pictures




We didn’t watch a moment of the Superbowl on Sunday, but we’ll take any excuse to get together and eat delicious food. That handsome guy is my uncle’s Weimeraner, Ruger. His brother, Gunther, was being camera shy. | separator


I’ve always been disgusted by toothpaste. The substance is abhorrent. Add the nasty chemical ingredients that most toothpastes contain and it makes my stomach turn. So when Britanie, made this post about all natural tooth powder, I had to try it.

I’m only a couple of days in but I’ll give a full review once I’ve made up my mind. | separator





I rarely buy myself things. I despise clutter after all, but last spring I fell in love with this Alice in Wonderland teapot & cup set. I got it in the England shoppe in Disney’s Epcot. I’ve just gotten around to putting it out and it makes me so happy. | separator







It’s Friday and the Nor’easter that the forecasters have been promising blew in early this morning. We’re expected to get up to fourteen inches of snow here. It was just starting to accumulate during my morning walk with Bella.

Doesn’t our backyard look a Winter Wonderland already? Have a lovely weekend. xo

    Babe! Love this post and so happy that you ordered the tooth powder. What do you think of it? I plan to try the mint next. I love it so much.

      Thank you, love. I like the tooth powder much better than toothpaste. I am still getting used to it and I want to see how I feel after a week. But so far, so good! xo

    Lovely pics and I hope all is well there with the storm and snow; looks like plenty of firewood.

      Thank you, Lou! Yes, most of the wood is seasoning this year, but will be ready for burning next year. 🙂
