Hello! 😁 It is a most blustery morning here in northern Illinois. The wind chimes are singing, singing, singing–tiny tinkling notes in the backyard and low notes from the bamboo chimes on the front porch. We are under a winter storm watch which starts in the wee hours of Thursday morning. Over 6 inches of snow and wind gusts up to 40mph will be Thursday’s weather conditions where I live.
However, today I am dreaming of spring; the crocuses and grape hyacinths are coming up and all of the snow has melted.
I dug into my photo archives to retrieve some of my favorite outdoor spring shots and thought you might enjoy them, too. I find it so rewarding to look back at these pictures in the middle of winter. I’d like to take more outdoor shots this year. It’s such a challenge though… My dollies are always falling over! Maybe I can figure something out. Any ideas?
Do you have a favorite? If you are still stuck in the middle of cold, snowy winter weather I hope you at least enjoyed these springtime pictures of my sweet girls.
A lot of these dolls are retired, but can be found on the secondary market. For more information about the dolls in these photos visit my FAQ page–tab at the top.
Wishing you a wonderful day no matter the weather! Enjoy! Sending hugs to you!🤗❤️
My two Ruby Red Fashion Friends, Bella and Holly (originally Stella), would like to say, “Happy Holidays to all of you!”
As they were busy decorating I got them to stop for a moment to take a quick picture of the both of them. As you can see by their happy faces and sparkling eyes they are the best of friends, and have a lot of fun together.
It has just started snowing here in northern Illinois–not bad yet. We are awaiting more snow and VERY cold blizzard-y conditions through tomorrow. It’s time to get cozy and hunker down!
Everyone stay safe and warm, and enjoy these next festive days if you celebrate. If not, enjoy the end of the week and weekend. ❤️
