SNOW IN OUR BACKYARD

This is how our backyard looked this morning.


I can't say I was ready for snow but it did look very pretty.


The kids got the day off from school.
Can't say I was ready for that either.


The branches above were so weighed down with snow
that they were hanging right outside our family room window.


It looks like we may be in for another long winter!

Stay warm,

  6. Very pretty, Joanne. I ♥ winter, so I don't mind it one bit.

    I just feel badly for my nieces and nephew, who already had the day off from school due to a delayed Veterans' Day.......they were bummed.

  8. Unbelievably pretty! We don't get snow much down here but when we do it's usually a dusting. So I am taken aback by just how beautiful your back yard is with the snow!

  11. The pictures are very pretty, though I guess all the snow does not make your life easy!

  12. I am so jealous, no snow here for us, just up in high country. (we live about 18 miles west of Grand Junction, CO, not too far to UT border. This year has been quite mild. Today it was about 45 but we were out in shirt sleeves, dry here. Back of our house faces due West so it's really hot in summer. I love winter and snow, easier than mud on dogs paws. What area are you in JoAnne? That looks so pretty.
    When we moved from San Diego to MT I'd sit and watch the snow fall, loved it. We had big windows around whole perimeter of living room.Got pretty cold there, 25 below during day first winter but its so dry there also it's not as cold as KY or east coast I guess. We lived in KY for 5 yrs after MT. I'd go back to MT in a heart beat, loved it there so much. Where we are is ok but just not MT except our youngest daughter/family lives about 6 miles east of us.
    Enjoy that snow, so gorgeous. Happy season

  13. It's beautiful but yes, too early. I think we're in the same weather pattern as last year.

  14. We've received our first round of snow for the season too... looks like you have a lot more than us. Although it seems so early, I can't help but be excited. The first snow is always so fun.

  15. JoAnne,
    Your pictures look beautiful. You could have some beautiful Christmas cards out of those shots. I agree I think we are in for a long winter. The first snow is always the prettiest.

  17. When we southerners see all that snow we say "oh how beautiful- I wish I had that", but I'm guessing it may be a bit of a headache after the novelty wears off. But it really is oh so beautiful! What wonderful pictures!

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!
JoAnne

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
