Good morning! How was your weekend? Relaxing? Filled with adventure? It snowed several inches both Friday and Saturday and made for an enchanting evening as it fell in big fluffy flakes by the light of the moon.

I spent way too many hours on Google Art Project enjoying some of my favorite museums and studying the techniques and brush strokes of many of my favorite artists. Many of you commented that you had never hear of it, and thought perhaps it was new but in fact, it was launched on February 1, 2011 with 14 museums and one year later it announced agreements with 151 museums!
I think it is an unbelievable undertaking and a fascinating project. For many it is the only opportunity that they will ever have to see some of the great works of art from around the world and for others it is the opportunity to study and learn from the Master's themselves. I hope you explore it if you are an art fan, it is addicting just like
Aside from that I went to a few antique stores, enjoyed two books and watched Downton Abbey among other things.
Can you believe all of the drama and the excitement? I don't want to give anything away because I know that some of the people who read my blog do not watch Downton on Sunday but stream it at a later date. Let me just say, this weeks episode does not disappoint.
What did you think of Dowton Abbey? Did you enjoy it? Were you lucky enough to get any snow(for those of us who have been missing it)? Make anything tasty treats? You know I love new books, movies and recipes so please share.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
