A Winter Tartan Picnic





      Hello everyone,
I hope you had a lovely weekend.
We had great weather for all the
outdoor Christmas events.
Since we had some snow but mild
temperatures I did a little  outdoor
photo shoot.
I like to set up our porch with a winter
display that I enjoy even just looking
out from the doorway.
                                      This time I used a blue /green 
             tartan theme.

                       Winter picnics are fun too.

                           Love this tartan gift bag.

                                                          You can see we had a good cover of
                                                          snow on the trees and shrubs.It was
                                                          pretty but thousands of homes were without power
                                                          some for a couple of days because of the weight
                                                         of snow on the wires across the Island.
                                                     
                       With more sunshine and mild temperatures
                    for most of this week, I think I will make
                       a thermos of hot cocoa and sit out and enjoy
             the fresh air and the beauty of nature.

I am joining Cozy Little House and
                  Common Ground for their Christmas mini party.

                 Have a wonderful day!

Hi Carolyn! It's always so beautiful at your house and the snow looks so Christmasy. We had snow this time last year but none so far. Folks keep telling us...just wait! Hope you're doing well.
Be a sweetie,

What a welcoming porch! One imagines a cozy fire inside with hot tea (and hot chocolate)!

What a cozy winter vignette -- The tartan patterns make it look warm, even if you can only enjoy looking at it from inside, and the red wreath and Santa bag are cheerful and bright. Enjoy your cup of hot cocoa! -Beth
