A White Christmas in the Boathouse

      Hello everyone,

      I hope you are doing well and
             are enjoying the Christmas season.

               I am still waiting for a nice snowfall

I have shared some of these
photos before as these were
taken a few years ago.

As many of you know my husband
and son built the Boathouse by our
pond seven years ago 

This is the conservatory/sunroom
on the back facing south.

We used old french doors for the
windows so it gets lots of light.

I have decorated for Christmas in several
different ways but this remains one of
my top two favorites.

I painted these old vintage skates
grey with a wash of brown to give
them an aged look.

The bed is ready and
a snack awaits.

The outside of the Boathouse.

Wishing for some of that snow
soon.....I do love a white Christmas.

This is another Christmas card
that I thought you might like....
just a way of including a 
photo that I enjoy and
hope you do too.

The above is The Gardener's
Cottage in our garden taken
on a beautiful winter day.

Thank you for visiting!

Take good care,

Lovely photos. Carolyn, I was on Facebook on English Country Shabby and saw a beautiful photo that looked somehow familiar. I thought it was one of yours. I went to your blog and searched and, sure enough, it was of the boathouse from November of 2015. I left a comment on that site saying the photo was yours as it didn't have your name on it as most of your photos do and I thought people should know it was yours. You can see it on a December 14th post on their Facebook page.

Oh how I love your boathouse and the white Christmas there.. I hope you get snow very soon! I could just live there forever... it's such a dreamy place. No snow here in central Oregon, except we've had a few skiffs, maybe an inch or two a couple of times. That's enough for me! but I must admit, LOOKING at white Christmas pictures such as yours, takes me back to another place and time and I think of the "olden days" when I was a child. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place. Marilyn
