This year we are being wolloped by winter! We have soooo much snow, and it is soooo cold. But I am a born and bred Canadian prairie girl, and I love this weather. It is what I am used to, it is what I have memories of from when I was a kid, and it is what I love. I truly love it! The colours, the sparkles, the blue skies, the white snow, the drifts, the toboggan hill, skating, hot chocolate, fires, even the cold. Call me crazy, but I am embracing our winter this year! (I will clarify that I love our winters until March, then it is ‘spring’ here, and I hate our ‘spring’.)
So here is my ode to winter. I have decorated my mantel in a winter theme: the colours blue and white, snowflakes and snowballs. It makes our house feel so pretty. (My son came down this morning and said: “Mom that fireplace looks so nice! You are an artist!” What better motivation do I need than that!?)
Enjoy the photos!
Yarn snowballs, so cute and so easy to make

The most amazing hoarfrost I have ever seen. This was 2 years ago on our drive to Grandma & Grandpa’s.
