A brown Christmas but snow is on the way..........

Late this evening, I let Kaiser the Wonder Beagle outside for his evening constitutional and I was surprised at the glittery snow that was beginning to cover everything! It looked just like glitter! It was sprinkled on my little chair that last night held my Santa Bear (and in spring and summer holds my flowers and in fall holds a pumpkin or two!). This is an old Sunday School chair that was going to be tossed and I brought it home because it brings back good childhood memories.


Sprinkles of glittery snow were on the fake Christmas gifts that sit in my planter boxes. I pulled out my fall mums and the indentation in the dirt was the perfect cradle for fake presents!


I never got my old wooden sled down from the garage as without snow, it would look strange sitting on a bed of rocks. So I left my red wagon and the old lawnmower that my brother, Doug, gave me last summer. I added some of those fake flowers that I grow so well and made them look a bit festive. There is just the slightest dusting of real snow in my little red wagon.........

I wonder how much snow will be there by morning? The best part of this snow is that it came after all of our family holiday travel. Nice to know that we have no place to go. I will be in my sewing room. All day. :-)

The snow/drizzle began last eve here (south of Winona/SE MN) and it seems to persist this morning! The driving is a tad treacherous (according to the reporting) as nothing is plowed or de-iced! It's gone from brown to pretty much white in the last 2 days.....guess it was bound to happen!!! LOL!

The snow must look so pretty.

Snow is always so much nicer when you don't have to be out driving in it.
