WINTER HAS ARRIVED

As my feet touched the cool morning floor.... something caught my eye with the new dawning light....tis snow....
an early morning surprise....winter has arrived in Maine....it is December after all.... the perfect accent to a Saturday morning drive to attend the Shaker Village annual Christmas craft fair....Oh, yes and off to Lizzie's Rags where I won a door prize....I can not recall what the door prize is, but am sure it will be primitively perfect. Will share my winning prize with you later this evening....Blessings to all.

That must be trick photography...because you made "snow" look appealing!

Welcome to my world! How I wish I could go to the Shaker Village Christmas craft fair with you, it must be marvellous to see all the crafts. I suspect they will all be top quality at a Shaker Village. I'd rather like to spend a Christmas in New England one day.

What a beautiful view of your house in the snow. The first snowfall is always such a treat, especially when it arrives in time for Christmas. We'll have a green Christmas here, as all the snow has melted and there's no prediction for more.....but stranger things have happened!
Have a wonderful time at the fair.

Thanks for the reference to my shop. I only wish it was much more. Nice talking to you this morning when you came to pick up your prize. Enjoy the rest of this special season. Your home is beautiful!

Wow, what a winter wonderland! Hope you have fun at the Christmas fair.

I can't wait to see. You always get the most amazing things. I really love the picture of the deer out in the snow. It looks so cold and it shines so prettily.
I hope today was a blast for you.

Hey Julie...we had snow last night (actually still kinda snowing) also. I love the first snow. After that, though...not so much. Your house looks lovely!

My goodness Winter sure is upon your doorstep! It's cold down here but we've only had a snow squall. That snow didn't stick though.

Your home looks wonderful in snow, Julie, though I have to admit I'm already looking forward to the day the Daffodils start poking their little heads up. Guess I'll be waiting a while, won't I.

Yes it is December in Maine! Beautiful photos Julie and I love that lamp!

Julia said...

What lovely pictures of a perfect winter scene on your post this evening. So Pretty.

We had about 6 inches of snow but we got rain instead of snow and all the snow is gone now.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. JB

There is something about the cleanness and freshness of new fallen snow. What a treat to wake up and see your lovely field dusted so lightly. Great photos and well wishes to Winslow.

How beautiful! Your place is beautiful with and without the snow.

I am horribly jealous. We need a little snow down here (southern NH) to gain some christmas cheer!

The snow pictures are just lovely. Because I've just seen the Harry Potter movie The Deathly Hallows, I had to look twice to make sure that wasn't a Patronus in the middle of your field.
