I'm Wishing For a White Christmas . . .


I would love to see a white Christmas this year. The forecast is for a bit of snow on Sunday. We had very little snow last year and I would be happy to see a more normal winter this year. In the mean time, I have searched my Pinterest boards for some lovely snow to share with you. Some of the images are truly magical. I thank all the wonderful photographers who are responsible for this beauty! Click on the video if you would like a little Christmas music to accompany the photos. Now sit back and enjoy!

This last picture is of a treasury I compiled for Etsy. I love the new app that lets you Pin them now. Any of you Etsians that have not tried it, here is the link.

  4. Beautiful, magical images! I'd like a white Christmas, too. Last year was a very dry winter. We didn't have snow throughout the holidays and it just didn't feel like Christmas. I'm hoping it's different this time around.

  5. Snow is so wonderful and beautiful, provided you don't have to shovel it.

  6. I agree! Snow is beautiful to look at, not so beautiful to shovel or drive in!

  7. Wow!!! My heart is smiling!! I love snow so much! I lose myself in it! I love sitting outside and seeing the earth fall asleep! I think it's so magical and peaceful! Thanks for the special pictures! that owl was amazing! I have to go check out your treasury!
    I have to admit, I agree with you and Debra! It's not fun to drive in it, but you know what, I like the shoveling ;o) Big Hugs ;o)

  10. Love all these beautiful pictures, especially the ones with the birds ... but I still rather be looking at these than in this cold weather. I really don't like driving in the snow and ice...had a lot of close calls with that stuff. Not too happy with our always too hot weather here in Florida and I do so miss NY especially in the Fall. I must say being inside with a nice fire burning in the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa watching the snow is not too bad an experience at all. Oh, and thanks so much for the pin treasury information ... this will be so wonderful to post my treasuries at my blog, when I get to blog.

    Happiness always,
    Jan

  11. There is something so special and magical about snow - the pictures you have chosen are beautiful - I especially like the 2nd and 4th ones - you have to wonder what is at the end of that path!

  13. Absolutely stunning! I miss the snow we had in New York. Here in Sicily it hardly ever snows, it it does, maybe on Mt. Etna!
