Beautiful Winter

I am done complaining about the cold. Winter in Minnesota is what it is, cold and dark and snowy. If you are one to enjoy the outdoors.... well, the cold is for you. As for me, I am an indoors person, I enjoy the beautiful winter landscape from inside closed doors. I dress in multiple layers, pile on the extra socks, wrap up in scarfs and wear the Uggs.... all indoors!! I'm okay with all of this because it is what I know, winter in Minnesota. It gives a nice break from all of the outdoor chores and allows our mind to concentrate on indoor things. Winter is a great time to re - do. To relax and to recharge. It is a time to explore books and magazines and to dream of gardening....it gives us "you time."
As you pack up Christmas and reclaim your space, how many of you leave up "winter" decor? I for one, do. I also love tulips and bulbs of all kinds so they find there way into my house long before spring arrives, but I consider it my winter decor. So, if you are doing the snow thing - great, but if you are not, then come see me at the Barn - inside. A warm cup of coffee and a long warm indoor stroll will revive you and get you through the long winter months.
It will definitely help get me through....


Good God.... just remember, winter is beautiful .


These gears and frame are a fun project that my mother did on her wall. Like mother - like daughter .....

As always - your positive attitude prevails - through words, deeds & displays.
Honestly, when I hear people complain about winter - than, off they should go to somewhere warmer. When you live in the midwest - winter it is!

We spend so much time waiting on the weather...not just in Minnesota, but more so here then in the warmer climates. So, if you are going to live here, go outside and injoy it or stay inside and enjoy it. Makes NO sense to complain.
