Baby it's cold outside ~

Hello everyone ~ It has been soooo cold outside that Mr. Vintage and I have been staying inside ~

Eating warm hearty soups and stews ~ Just perfect to warm your belly ~

Chico is trying to stay warm too.  He snuggles right into his blanket ~ and when he's not snuggled, this is his favourite place to be ~

He loves to sit on the furnace grate and feel the heat.  

Now, I am off to my favourite little consignment shop.  I'll brave the cold ;-)  Chico you can't come with Mommy, it's too cold outside for you.  Just wait for Mommy, I'll be back soon

What are you doing?  Is it really cold where you are?

Can't wait to hear




  1. Lovely photos this morning! The rose is beautiful - and Chico is so cute - and looks like the heater is his best friend. lol It's cold here too. It was -9F.degrees when I got up, but has warmed up somewhat, although I don't consider anything warm until May.

  2. Don't be mad at's sunny and 70 here. We havebeen having some wonderful weather for about a week. Hope you find some goodies while out thriftin'.


  3. My pooch who is considerably more fuzzy then Chico does exactly the same thing, right in front of the heat vent. It's a dog's life isn't it? LOL...they know what they should do. Consignment shop, havn't been since I picked up my 1960's proctor silex percolator with the lights....dreamy vintage...have fun.

  4. It's been around 20 (daytime) here for the past week but today is warmer, around 40 today. We went out and enjoyed the warmth. Doesn't that sound funny, warm at 40 ha! Glad you're enjoying your soups, I asked my husband this morning if I make soup too often in the winter, and he replied "keep them coming!"


  5. Afternoon, what a sweet picture of Chico on the vent, smart pup......So cold here still, just relaxing today.....Blessings Francine.

  6. It's been really cold here! Didn't even make it up to 30 the other day and we've had a little snow. I'm working on preparing soup and crock pot meals too - warmth for the inside helps! Little Chico is so adorable! Stay warm! Hugs, Leena
