The Christmas Nook

                                                        As soon as we had our first snowfall I
                                                         went down to our Boathouse with my
                                                        camera and took a few shots of the
                                                        little nook all decked out for the Christmas
                                                        season. It was a perfect calm day, the
                                                         trees are reflecting in the pond and with snow
                                                         covering the ground and trees, it was beautiful!


                                                               Candles,pinecones and lights.

                                                        The vintage red and white handmade quilt
                                                         adds just just the right touch.
                                                                   A wider view.
                                                   A cup of tea and a Christmas magazine
                                                   and I am ready to enjoy the nook.

                                       This little nook is one of my favorite plaves
                                                  to relax with a good book.Hope you enjoyed
                                                 a peek at it in it's winter/Christmas glory!

Such a gorgeous spot to sit and relax or take in the view, Carolyn. I have to tell you again how these pictures would make a wonderful calendar. : )

This is so pretty, Carolyn. You must have so much fun decorating this little boathouse along with your home for all the seasons. It looks perfect with the snow outside and the reflections in the pond.

So pretty Carolyn and gets me in the holiday spirit! I just want to literally dive into my computer so I can snuggle up right there and just gaze and daydream. Sigh...
