It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like. . .

WINTER! It's here! Last night we had the beginnings of our first big snow storm here in northeastern Illinois and what a lovely sight that first snowfall is. Of course after a while, we all become bored with the snow and later in the season we downright wish it would stop falling! But there's nothing quite like the look of the fresh, first snow that hasn't been disturbed by footprints or snowplows. Later today, the streets will become slushy and dirty and just plain yukky, but until then I am reveling at nature's beauty.
These are the 50-plus year old Austrian Pine trees in front of our house.

And this photo was taken last night out on our deck. See what I mean about snow that has not yet been walked on? Over the weekend my DH put the tiny white lights on all the trees and shrubs around the house and I love how they look glowing under the snow.

This morning I have to make a run to the post office to mail out some Etsy orders and also the tree topper I made for Tamy for our Under the Red Roof Tree Topper swap. Afterwards, I have to go into the office for a bit of boring paperwork and then hopefully tonight I can take some time to clean up the messes I have made everywhere from all my creative projects. I really have spread out this time - there's almost no room in the house that was safe from glitter and glue! Then I can start again, with a fresh slate, to make a few more things for the shop before Christmas.

Jeanne, what lovely photos of the fresh snow. It looks so pretty. Living in Australia makes it hard to imagine living with snow.

Love winter scenes...I've been enjoying my own ;) I like your red borders as well around the pics.
