Fun on a Winter Day


           Hello everyone,

                    It was a beautiful winter day here so after
                       taking down the rest of the Christmas decor
                        (which makes me a little sad) I went outdoors
      to enjoy the beauty in the garden.

So I decided to do a little
photo shoot for you.

A mix of  plaids/tartans
makes a cheerful scene.

                                                                        I love these thrift store
                                                                        finds......perfect for a
                                                                        winter picnic.

Vintage skates

                                                                 Well, that was my winter fun for
                                                                            the day!

                                                                           When, I asked my husband how many
                                                                            people he knew would think it was fun
                                                                            to haul a bunch of stuff outside and
                                                                            take photos of it with cold bare hands
                                                                            then download and edit them to post.
                                                                            ..........his reply " I am not going there!"

                                                                            I take that to mean not a lot! Ha! Ha!

                                                                            Oh! guess I better go out and haul it
                                                                            all back in again!

                                                                                              Hope you enjoy!

It is beautiful Carolyn. Well worth the time and effort.
The plaid is so colourful against the white snow. Happy New Year!

Your photo shoot is beautiful! Love all the plaids. You must have been saving them up for a while--there are so many. Just beautiful! Love your blog... Happy New Year to you and yours!

Shelia said...

Happy New Year, Carolyn! Oh, what a beautiful spot you've created! I had to giggle at your hubby's response. Only a dedicated blogger would do this and you did it up beautifully! Thank you for popping in to see me and your kind words for my little Carter and me! Here's to another year of blogging with you.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Beautiful photos Carolyn. Thank you for all of your effort to give us this lovely eye candy. It is so warm here down under the sight of the snow made me feel cooler:-)

Susan Freeman said...

Love all the tartan, snow and the wonderful vintage skates!

Big Texas Hugs,

You deserve a nice big hot cup of tea for all your effort that we appreciate so much. Wonderful winter scene and there's nothing like plaid to make everything look cozy (even in the snow)!

Mountain Mama said...

How lovely!! Looks just like a beautiful Christmas card!! You have a good bit of snow there - we have barely any!

Thank you to bother to haul the stuff outside for your photos and to share your winter garden. Very inspiring indeed. A snowy garden has something of magic. Helene

I am pretty sure that your husband is secretly proud of your beautiful blog and the work that goes into making it so stunning! If he gets tired of helping you ask me!! ask me!!

Lovely photos, lovely scenes... I can't think of anything more fun than being out in the snow - and combining it with those heavenly plaids. Thank you for the comforting images!

Happy New Year, Carolyn! You do have a lot of energy to bring all of your pretty red and tartan things out into the snow for a shoot! I had to laugh at your hubby's answer!
I enjoyed your Sunday tea post too. Winter whites are so pretty and soothing. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.

Photos are beautiful. Looks like you have more snow in Canada than we have in southern Finland. Wish you Happy New Year 2016!

Even with all the snow, this post warmed my heart Carolyn. So beautiful! What a bright setting you have created here. Thank you so much for sharing.

You always post the loveliest things!

This is a lovely post Carolyn. I, for one, appreciate your efforts for doing this in winter's cold. It looks beautiful. Of course, it's much colder today than it has been so I hope you are inside where it's warm.

Very beautiful! The contrast of the red plaids against the beautiful, crisp snow is so lovely -- thanks for creating it and sharing it with us. Best, -Beth

Liz said...

Love the tartan look, but then again as a Scot that's probably why! The red just pops in the snow. Hope you weren't too cold!

Take care,
