Happy first Saturday of February from the Mitten and welcome to my Mitten Moments!

You know, those random moments from my week that I am sharing with you.

A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

I’m starting off my snowy Saturday morning with hot tea, a nutty donut and patiently waiting for my gbaby. What’s better than donuts and this precious face, on a pretty Saturday?!

Well, it finally happened. We got snow…I mean inches of snow! This Michigan girl loves a good snow.

In other news this week, I watched The Gilded Age on HBO. Let me tell you my one word description…AMAZING! I love a good period drama with all the beautiful costumes, set decor and traditions. If you loved Downton Abbey, you’ll love this one. Think Downton meets New York. I highly recommend!

A Few Favorite Mitten Moments

I wanted to share a few of my favorite blog moments this week.

The first comes from my friend Kim at Shiplap and Shells. She lives in a beautiful home in the PNW AND has the prettiest gardens! This week she shared 9 of her favorite garden trends for 2022.

Do yourself a favor and check out her blog. Its beautiful!

You know I love to transform furniture with paint. My friend Tammy from White Lilac Farmhouse did a beautiful transformation. She showed us How To Paint A Chair Easily. The color and fabric she used are both pretty and cheerful. She did a beautiful job!

Don’t you agree?

Finally, I’ve shared my blogging friend Stacey at Garlic Salt and Lime and many of her recipes before. This week, I’m sharing these Mini Gluten Free Orange and Chocolate Chip Scones. If you haven’t had the chance to try one of her recipes, you are missing out!

This Week On The Blog

You all know I do love a good craft or DIY. This week on my blog, I shared An Easy Valentine’s Day Pom Pom Heart Wreath.

Have you ever made a pom pom? If you have, you know how fun it is. If not, go visit my post this week and see how fun it is!

C’mon…who doesn’t love a pink pom pom?!

Random Trivia

Do you watch the Olympics?

If so, are you a summer or winter kind of Olympic person?

I personally like the winter sports, so I’ll say team winter!

Did you know that in 1924 the first Winter Olympics games took place at Chamonix in the French Alps. It was known as the “International Winter Sports Week”.

The French Alps! Just saying it makes me want to visit.

Sounds so dreamy! And snowy!

I’ve been watching the 2022 Olympics in Beijing this week.

Have you?

And Now…

Here are some other WONDERFUL moments I found this week:

This cozy ski lodge bedding

This yummy strawberry sheet cake

This mexican spinach artichoke dip

I hope you have enjoyed my moments, this weekend.

I hope all the moments of your Saturday bring you more joy than you could imagine!
