Dreaming of a White Christmas!

It's been raining a whole lot here for the past three days. So much, that there have been flood watch warnings. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I came downstairs from my studio yesterday afternoon and looked outside and saw this... It wasn't even predicted! I LOVE SNOW!!! Not driving it in, of course! So Sophie and I put on our coats and went for a walk. Poor little thing, her paws were quickly frozen, but we had fun!
Isn't it beautiful?

It got below freezing and everything was covered with ice this morning, but the sun is out!

These photos are in my dining room. Some pretty crystals and greenery for the chandelier. Don't the crystals look like icicles? The wreath on the table came from Big Lots! and the candle holder from Wal-Mart for $7.99!

A closer look...

The wreath is all glittery but you can't really tell by the photo.

Stay tuned for more decorating photos, I'm putting the finishing touches on the new stockings I made and then just a bit more tweaking of the mantel...

I wish everyone a joyous holiday weekend! We're going to the Dickens Christmas Festival in downtown Franklin this weekend. I'll try to get some photos and post them. It's actually quite famous down here and I feel very blessed that it's practically in my own backyard! What are you doing this weekend?

Happy Christmas!

Hugs,
Victoria Lynn

Oh how I wish we were having snow!! It looks beautiful. I also love Season's of Cannon Falls, their things look so vintage, I found quite a few of their ornaments at Marshall's & Homegood last year and this year. I am always so excited when I find them!! All of your decorations look so pretty. Have a Merry Christmas (;

Ahh I love the picture of Sophie in her coat. Now she needs some little boots. lol
We got some snow overnight on Monday, but it's almost all gone now. So cold though, feels like we might be getting more anytime.
Your wreath that you got from Big Lots looks so nice with the candle holder. And I love your chandlier how you have it decorated.
Enjoy the weekend.

I enjoyed my first visit to your blog. We seem to like a lot of the same things. I also have cats. It was fun to see the snow pictures, I was raised in Illinois but have been in Florida for about 30 years.
I did not see a link to view items you are selling? I will be back.
BE BLESSED

Hi Victoria Lynn,
Oh we had such little snow, but haven't had it for years. We went to Franklin when we were up your way and it is such a great town, I can just imagine what it will be like. Please take lots of pictures...
Your chandelier is beautiful.
Merry Christmas,
