we have a winner!


winter, {or what i now like to refer to as "Ugg-ly footwear weather"} has arrived early at my minnesota cottage......and i am not too happy about it.  sure all your southern girls look at these pictures and think how 'festive' and 'seasonal' it all looks.....yea, well come back in april when it still looks like this and let me know what you think!

our lake is now safe to walk on and the kids have been making good use of our next door neighbor's backyard ice rink.....momma?  well she's settling in for a long winter's nap.....lots of cooking, wine drinking and indoor home improvement projects....



this is my front porch today, still needs more spruce tips in the urns under the windows and some garland.....hard to get excited about more decorating when it was 0 degrees this morning!  This might be 'good enough' this year.

the winner of the vintage holiday goodies is robin, from happy at home - a fellow minnesota girl!

  7. Yippppeeeeeee!

    The best part of winter snow is the need for more boots. Cute books, play boots, going to the store boots, etc. I boots. Maybe that's why I love living in Minnesota! LOL

  10. What an adorable home, Jill! I just love it!!! Your porch looks very Christmasy and very welcoming. The Merry Christmas sign looks like the signage I used to use at the landscaping company I worked at. They were used to post info on plants. GREAT idea!

    Oh, and I hear ya about the snow. We've been lucky here so far.....but it's coming!! Blizzard conditions predicted for Sunday-Monday......UGH......
