The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Let It Snow. . .

It SNOWED!


This was when it first started. . .

. . .  and this is what it looks like now!


Although our freshly fallen snow is
truly bittersweet,
since "Mr.Ed" The Highway Man
is out working this cold night
. . .but I am ecstatic! ! ! 

Did I mention that I LOVE SNOW ? ? ? 


I'll just get out my favorite pear tea set and put some boiling water inside. . . a little cream and sugar and. . .


some hot cocoa mix with my favorite. . . 
 miniature marshmallows!



A winter beverage center set with all the necessities of the Season!


Since dear hubby is working tonight. . .
I'll just make a cup for myself!


Excuse me, dear. . .
would you like to join me in a cup of hot cocoa?

The more the merrier!



Sweet little silver teaspoons to stir your cocoa!


Would you like mini marshmallows. . .
 or many marshmallows?


Come on over. . .
we'll make it a SNOW party!



Let it SNOW. . .


Our Deck dining table!
Let it SNOW. . .


New furnace grate coffee table!


Let it SNOW!




Upside down bird bath becomes a snowy table top!



Until next time. . .


On Crooked Creek is joining our hostess Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. Susan is in the process of making over her son's bedroom into a home office. Stop by and view what she is considering, along with all the other inspiring ideas from this week's participants.


Today, since updating the snow photos. . .I'm joining our hostess Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday. Be sure to drop in and see all the lovely table tops for some inspiration in your home decor.

Okay, I want mini and many marshamllows if you please. I adore your snowmen cups! Too cute! Fill mine to the brim...its bitter cold here. I love our lamp too, everyroom should have a touch of black to anchor it so my grandmom said, she was an interior decorator. The lamp is the perfect touch in your little vingette.

I am so excited about the snow its 3AM and I have been trying to take photos hanging out the windows... that is nuts huh? We have 4" so far so make plenty of Hot Cocoa and I will get on my boots and head your way. I think I can be there by morning.

That was a cute post! And for some reason I want it to snow and I want some hot chocolate. Any reason why I'd feel this way?

How perfect is this. I love your snowmen mugs and using the apothecary jars for the cocoa and marshmellows is about the greatest idea I have seen. Beautiful hot chocolate bar. Thanks for joining TTT Hugs, Marty

I like the snow too but only the snow in SC. I comes for a few days and then leaves:) I love hot chocolate with marshmallows and would love to have a cup with you!

Custom Comforts said...

Love your hot chocolate station!!! So cute and handy for this cold snowy weather. I'd be dipping into those marsh mellows nonstop.

Hahaaa...I LOVE this lighthearted and happy post. I love snow, too. I love it a lot more NOW since I am retired and don't have to get outside. :))

Your little cups are so delightful..and I'll have MANY marshmallows, if you please. :)

Now, if you will excuse me, I am off to set up a HOT BEVERAGE CENTER on MY counter.
