Happy December Weekend

                                                          Happy Weekend!

          Hope you enjoy a lovely weekend with all the joys of the season.

           We had a dusting of snow a few days ago so I took some winter shots . The one above is from a previous winter though but the rest were taken at our home this week.
                              My husband made this birdhouse several years ago.
                           I know I shared pics of this setting (our barn) a couple of weeks ago but the dusting of snow adds more winter interest.
                              I bought the antique men's skates at the 70 mile yard sale .
                                     The north end of our barn and the old jaunting sleigh. too bad we don't have a horse so we could go for horse and sleigh rides!
                                                            Our door way.
                                    The ski's were a recent $2 find.

Our little dusting of snow has melted now and there is rain in the forecast with unseasonally warm temps again. Most people are loving it but I long for a little snow for a more Christmasy/winter look.

Enjoy your weekend!

Dear Carolyn,
your "snow-photos" look like a fairy tale! Most of all I love your decorated lantern and the angel with the green wreath on the door!
Don't be disappointed - snow will come back soon, I am sure!
Best advent-wishes, Siret

Hello Carolyn
Your outdoor decor does look nicer with a dusting of snow. But, be careful what you wish for!
Our snow is all gone and it's overcast and raining today.

Your barn and sleigh looks so pretty with all the Christmas decorations and the dusting of snow on everything. It's sprinkling here right now. It would be nice to have a bit of snow on the ground. Have a lovely weekend.


Olá Carolyn,

Realmente a neve faz parte do Natal. Apesar de não fazer idéia da paisagem repleta de neve, me encanta em compartilhar com você a chegada dela.

Uma boa semana.

That dusting of snow is so b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! The leaves finally fell from our trees a couple weeks ago. I just now came in from raking half of them and I'm sweating. (83 degrees and humid right now). That snow looks so inviting. Thanks for sharing such beautiful photos. It's blogs like yours that remind me that it really is December. :p

It's hard choosing a favorite pic, by the way. I want to step inside all of them.
