Winter Wonderland

One thing is for sure, it is so beautiful in Massachusetts when it snows.  The change of seasons is one reason I am so happy to live here.  My backyard...

Snow...Snow and more Snow...  Isn't my dog the cutest ever?  Maggie loves running around in the deep snow.  In this picture, she is waiting for me to chase her.  I was afraid to get to close while taking this picture because at any moment she was going to take off!  She is so cute!

Here is a peek at some of my Christmas decorations.  Luckily we had one 70 degree day before it snowed and I was able to put up decorations and some lights.  Usually, I wait to long and everything is frozen and I can barely stand to be outside stringing lights!  Not bad for a quick decoration.

I took this picture at night (of course) and my little Cannon digital camera was able to capture this loveliness!  I am so into taking beautiful photo's like this.

Winterberries that I arranged in my black cast iron planters by my side door.

Looking down my block.  This was early morning.  I think you get the best photo's at this time of day.  However, I needed to get up at sunrise for the best light.
 It really was like a winter wonderland this weekend.

For those of you who don't have snow...I hope you enjoyed all this prettiness!

Stay warm!

I love your photos (they came out a lot better than mine)! The one at night is just stunning.

Saturday morning I put out some decorations in front of my house(I bought two little mini evergreen trees and a wreath), and I had to go out yesterday and shake the snow off because I was afraid it would crush the plants!

Wow, it's STUNNING! I'm just so jealous of all that snow! All we have here in Norway is lousy rain... Your dog really is the cutest, and I love how you decorated your front door (and those light fixtures are beautiful, they have this asian feel to them) :)

Thanks for the comment on my litography, it really is stunning and the colors are so fresh!

Have a fabulous day!

Oh Jamilyn how beautiful! Your photos look like something out of a magazine. I love your entry, it's just perfect. And your street is so pretty. No, we won't be getting any snow in So. Calif. It's raining today and that's as close to winter as we will get.

Beautiful, wish it was here! Your christmas decorations is beautiful as well.

We actually visited Massachusets this fall, and I loved it, we lived in Williamstown for a couple of days, after a week in New York City. We visited Mystic and Stonington and Old Greenwich in CT as well. We will definitely go back to see more of New England some time. I would love to visit Boston, Cape Cod, Rhode Island and some of Maine some time as well.

Have a nice day in your beautiful winter wonderland:)

Wow, these photos are beyond gorgeous. I so want to be there right now! It almost never snows in DC and when it does it doesn't stick.
