The first of December ~

...a chilly start to the first day of December ~
frost sparkled on the ground this morning,
~ making everything look dusted & glittered.

December is a favorite month of mine...
I love the Winter months best.
~ there is something about the stillness,
the quietness that comes from cold weather ~ 
...everything seems more intense...
the colors seem sharper and the scents seem stronger, 
imprinting us with lasting Holiday memories.

Here are a few snaps for you
of my surroundings this cold December morning...
enjoy your day my Friends!

Love the pictures Lori. I also love the winter season, more time to stitch. In the spring and summer I have to spend more of my time in the garden.

LOVE seeing my buddy, Buddy, and the other lovely pictures of Notforgotten Farm. It IS a beautiful start to December. I just might have to crank up the Carols and start stitchin' on a special stocking for the new baby in the family.

Great pictures Lori! I love them all. I love winter too. Nothing better than snuggling up and working on a quilt or hooked rug in a warm cozy house. Have a most wonderful December day. Hugs, Lori
