Waking Up to a Winter Wonderland

We’ve had lots of moisture since Thanksgiving, but since it’s been above freezing it has been rain.  Last night it fell below freezing, so we are waking up to a winter wonderland.  It is truly beautiful, and… my favorite kind of snow, melting.

It’s very cozy and warm inside.  Our large Christmas tree is to the left of this photo.  This little tree is my “sweets” tree where I hang vintage cookie cutters and yummy looking ornaments.morning snow 930

It’s very timely that I just finished this winter set for my Kaye Wiggs Millie.  This set was fun to make, love this color so much, a heathered sky blue.  Millie is hanging on tight to her stuffed snowman that I made her.  I think she’s afraid she may have to give it up and share with it another little girl.

We often say in Chicago that if you don’t like the current weather, wait 5 minutes and it will change.  While this change didn’t happen in 5 minutes, this was yesterday morning.

The snow that we have this morning will be gone very soon, we’re getting warmer.

Have a great day and thank you so much for reading my blog and commenting.  I love hearing from you.
