A Snowy Christmas.

... Hearts for you!...

I'm afraid I haven't been a good blogger over the past week! My bad headache made me feel sick and it was impossible for me to stay at the computer. I have some emails to be written yet (my apologies!), and I am also a little behind with my rounds to return comments and wish each of you a very merry Christmas. Sometimes I wish I could be like Wonder Woman!
Moreover, snow surprised us a few days ago and took up the most of my time and energy. When younger I was delighted by snow, now I'm more practical and just prefer a hassle-free life! LOL
It is bitterly cold now, with heavy snow forecast for tomorrow too.
This morn' Snowflake took a stroll around the garden...

You can spot the vintage snowflake pin that graces her bow just in time for Christmas! Thank you for the prompt shipping, Louise!

Snowflake made me notice that the bird manger was empty, so we treated our feathered friends with peanuts and walnuts and a pinecone covered in peanut butter and birdseeds.

At twilight I took this pic just for you! Love this angel, especially when lit, and candles in the snow are so very special! Oh, I meant to say I borrowed a couple of hubby's candycanes for my shooting sets... hope he doesn't notice! ;)

Have a nice evening everyone!


  1. Monica,

    Snowflake is precious!! I love her little ornament!

    This post is so cute...I am so with you on the snow. The first snowfall is pretty and I love when it is gently coming down. But when we get dumped on and everything becomes difficult...oh, I wish I lived in the South!!

    I hope your headaches improve and don't worry about getting around. Everyone is busy with the holidays. I am just taking a break from decorating the tree!!

    Merry Christmas, my dear friend!


  2. Glad you're feeling better.
    Snowflake is lovely in the snow with her new pin !
    Today we've had a lot of snow and it's cold here, too.

    Merry Christmas to you, Monica !

  3. It looks LOVELY! So happy the pin arrived in time. Your candle in the snow looks so very romantic! I wish I could do the same... we are just recovering from a blizzard and I was in snow up to my hips!!! HUGS!
