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

In The Meadow. . .

Our first accumulating snowfall of the 2011 Season is predicted to arrive this weekend on the Prairie! Just in time for my birthday...yeah! For those of you who don't already know . . 
On Crooked Creek. . .  I love S N O W!!!

So~o~o. . .in the Entry Hall, I made a tribute to the one Season that delivers S N O W!!!

It's  a Winter Wonderland of S N O W!!! 
With all of my favorite S N O W decor items of the Season!

The newest addition to my collection is Frosty himself angled to greet you as you enter from the kitchen and the out~of~doors! At his feet sets the silver plated S N O Wglobe gifted from Christmases past from my son and daughter~in~law!

Mesmerizing S N O W flakes anytime! This treasured piece sets out all year 'round On Crooked Creek. . .only the location changes from Season~to~Season!

 I adore using suitcases for display! This vintage suitcase is one of many from my collection in the Studio.

Loaded down with treasures of S N O W   accessories! One of my favorite Seasonal sayings, warm, creamy ivory mittens, over~sized ornaments that look like S N O Wballs,the cutest little S N O Wman pillow and  a tartan plaid throw!

"Mr. Ed" is often heard saying,
                                              " You don't need another Christmas Tree!"

This feather tree was a "great find" at the Church Craft Show. The same year I found these adorable beige miniature S N O Wflake ornaments!

The S N O Wflake feather tree makes a perfect backdrop for Frosty's top hat!

Wall scones On Crooked Creek are decorated with Holly and Ivy and deep green poofy bows! Berry sprigs were added at the base of the creamy ivory battery candles to soften the glass and wrought iron.


A welcoming wreath of pepper berries, pine cones and evergreens! I adore this deep green ribbon with black wired edging for poofing!

I often put two (or more) wreaths together, as shown here. The appearance is fuller, richer! Each wreath was priced under $5. For less than $10. . . an amazing looking wreath!

A Holly and Ivy swag purchased in an after~Christmas $ale flanks the vintage wooden Clipper sled that belongs to "Mr. Ed". Fond memories, now precious stories, are often reminisced each year when we display this treasured heirloom On Crooked Creek.

Just like the promise in Frosty's top hat. . .
                                                       with S N O W. . .
                                                                               I'll be back again someday!

Until next time. . .
