Jack Frost is definitely nipping.......This is what I awoke to yesterday.......Everything was white with frost. The sky was blue, the sun was rising and everything was shimmering........


I thought I would share with you.

Tonight we are expecting more snow.........Winter Wonderland.
I really love the beauty of it......I just don't like to drive in it.
Until Later,

Everything is turning White

I woke up to WHITE this morning. Not a lot of white, but just enough to put me in the holiday mood. I sat for about an hour this morning with a cup of Chai Tea, watching the snow fall. I love the beauty of it. I still hate to drive in it, but I love how it makes everything look.

This is right outside my front door.
My son's bike outside of the original farmhouse, which is
just behind our house.
(He needs to put his bike away)
Another view outside my front door.

I love this tree!
It's so big.

You can see there is not a lot of snow on the ground yet.

My blue metal roof is now white.

Our red barn.

So, with the snow outside and really nowhere to go today.....I am going to finish painting my living room and hopefully start to put some holiday decorations out. I know a lot of you have already started....I know because I have been visiting your wonderful blogs and seeing wonderful ideas that I will be borrowing ;) Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.
Until Later,

New Fluffing around the House

Hi everyone.......It's been awhile since I posted anything. But I assure you, I have been around visiting all of you, keeping up on everything that you have been doing. I have just been behind the scenes...so to speak :) Checking out all of the yumminess that is always around blogland!

With the holidays just around the corner, I started to look around my house and decided I wanted to fluff it up a little bit. Get her ready for the holidays. So I went digging around in my junque pile, pulled out a few supplies and started fluffing. Digging around in my junque stashes started to make it feel like Christmas morning, with shiny new packages just waiting to be opened!

Here is the first one I opened

I Love this window, the glass is missing and it is chippy in all the right places. Since everyone else in blogland have made wonderful burlap wreaths, I had to have one.

(Note: I just picked up some wonderful paint that I will be painting my dining room and living room walls with. It's a soft linen color. No more white walls. I know.....I probably should have painted first, but that's how I roll)

Here was the second present I opened.
I have had this 1890's farmhouse door for
a while. She was originally covered in
white chippy paint, that was making
a huge mess, so I took most of it off
(don't hate me)
I think it now has a little
warmth to it.

I wanted to feature the original wood applique/carvings.
I think they are stunning.

So beautiful, I really love the door with a more natural look and
just a hint of chippy paint.
What do you think?

I really do love chippy paint, but this was seriously flaking/shedding/molting all
over my house.

And these little treasures I unwrapped at my local thrift
store, garage sale, and at my friends sale....
I love my new little mini scale and numbers.
They make me happy :)

Little $4 rooster lamp.

Perfect vintage platter that will be partnered with this lovely frame on my wall.

And a $2 picture from the thrift store.

Hope you all are having a wonderful day........
Until Later,
