First Snow 2017

It started snowing yesterday (Saturday) about 10:00 in the morning and continued all day and into the night. I think we got around 6 inches. I took this photo this morning just before 8:00 when the sun was just appearing from behind the clouds. The railing has already melted and the temperature is almost above freezing so the melting can begin. I am going to let Mother Nature do as much as she can before I get out my shovel. It's very peaceful and beautiful. Enjoy your Sunday morning and I'll see you later. xo

Christmas Tree Grove with Snow

Snow expected overnight here with 2 to 4 inches tomorrow. I guess the snow down south is coming my way. via

Stone Barn Converted to Guest Cottage and Library




All photos by Paul Massey
Wanting a place to display her treasured collection, Emma Burns, senior decorator at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler, transformed a converted barn at her country home into a sitting-room-cum-guest-cottage full of hidden surprises and witty details...tour the inside here.

Christmas Decorations with Snow

This setting is wonderful. I love the door and the Christmas wreath. I don't understand the little garage for boots though. If you took them off before entering the house, what would you have on your feet? There is still a lot of snow before reaching the front door. via

Evergreen Coconut Cake Topper

This little evergreen sprig looks perfect with a twine bow on top of a coconut cupcake that looks like it's covered in snow. via

Copper Pots Hanging From A Pot Rack

I have a "thing" for old copper pots and how people display them. This rod hanging from eye hooks between the beams is very nice. Hopefully, this is not the only sink in the kitchen! Smile. via

Kitchen with Open Fire

I don't really understand the open fire on the cooktop. It looks dangerous to me. I love the baby's laundry hanging out to dry up high. via

Beautiful Christmas Cookie Scene

So pretty. I love this Christmas Scene made of iced cookies and powdered sugar. I have the perfect background board but will I make one of these? Sadly, probably not. via

Scottsdale Arizona Rustic French Country Kitchen

This Rustic Arizona Kitchen Feels Like a French Countryside Vacation. The steel French doors are my favorite part of this construction project. Do want! See more inspiring photos and read the article in House Beautiful. This empty-nesting couple really downsized in style.

Spectacular Kitchen

I adore the backsplash with tiny subway tiles and everything else too. This kitchen is simply spectacular. via
