Winter Wonderland

Winter time is officially only a few weeks away.  In Michigan we see many gray skies and white landscapes (this might not be the case where you live!).

Taking inspiration from the colors of winter I created this new Dynamic Duo set.

Dynamic Duo

 

 

This set is so pretty! Combining the amethyst, gray and green colors together proved to be a great choice!

I’m giving away one of these sets to a random reader who comments below telling me what you love the most about winter. One winner will be randomly chosen on 12/9/13. One comment per person please!

  1. What I love most about winter…the magical moment that appears every so often when it’s snowed and the snowflakes on the ground appear to glimmer and sparkle. Especially magical when it’s late at night. Magical and calming.

  9. I love everything about winter – my favourite season! But, my favourite part of winter is bundling up with layers and being toasty warm in the cold, crisp air.

  10. I love the winter especially because of February. I can see the days get longer and the snow reflects such beautiful light. Winter is the opportunity to turn inward and bring your loved ones close.

  20. I love watching the robins pluck the fruit from our Golden Raindrops crab apple trees…the hummingbirds impatiently waiting for my husband to switch out the frozen nectar feeder for one that will flow freely when they dip in…watching the jays swoop onto the bird bath for a drink…seeing the bushtits come in waves, dozens at a time, to the suet feeder…the juncos, towhees, sparrows, chickadees on the seed feeders and on the ground…the doves, the flickers, the finches that all come because we invite them…and the hawk. We invited him to, but not so purposefully.

  33. I love the crisp, cold nights and waking up to snow on the ground. Having that cup of tea or cocoa in front of a warm-crackling fire. Going on walks in amongst the trees dusted with snow and just appreciating the beauty that surrounds me. Oh and we cannot forget the comfort foods. Soups, stews and casseroles…yummmmm. =)

  34. when it is magical. when there is a huge, new fallen snow and the world is hushed in awe and wonder. when you look up on a dark night at the snow flakes swirling down and feel them landing on your face and “kissing” your clothes as they settle. at the first big cold that freezes your nose hairs and makes you shiver deep in your bones and appreciate your heated home and cozy clothes. children’s laughter as they have snowball fights, and glide on sleds, build snowmen, and create snow angels. watching the world transform through the window when you are snuggly and warm and don’t need to go out for a long, long time.

I love walking through the woods and enjoying the quiet. And I love the clear nights – the winter has some of the best stargazing! Happy Winter Everyone!

  51. Winter is the best when you are in the woods and all is quiet, the snow blankets the ground and the earth is calm, simple and pure perfect and still. Michigan is a spectacular place to live.
