More snow, please!

We've had nice sunny weather for the past week or so. But yesterday morning, the sky was cloudy. It felt a bit depressing, to be honest. I therefore decided to cheer myself up with a flea market tour. I dug out a dress I had bought when I was expecting Peanut, about 18 months ago. I had only worn it once before my baby bump started showing. To my extreme delight and slight surprise, it fit!

As you can see from the pictures, we're getting more snow. Great... Just when it had finally started to look like spring. And the flea market tour? Average, I'd say. I found this glass jar with metal rim and lid. It once had a handle, but it's now long gone. The handle and the general shape of it makes me think it is an ice bucket. Or a biscuit barrel. How can you tell the difference? I walked past it probably three times before I picked it up and I'm glad I did. It now sits on my kitchen window sill and I think it looks marvellous with the light shining through it.
