Christmastime Down on the Farm

On this most magnificent of Christmas Eves, I want to wish you all a most festive holiday. As luck would have it, it's snowing! It wasn't predicted which makes it all the more enchanting, a total surprise. And I'm so glad because that would have been all the talk, with people fretting and canceling everything in their lives, except to rush out and get toilet paper and bread. 

I went out with my camera as the snow was beginning to fall. The white stuff makes the Christmas displays more festive. I gathered up lots of my cool, rusty stuff for this outdoor display on my back deck.

I bought this old minnow bucket this summer, along with the chippy red lantern.

Walking out the back field, I saw the sheep grazing. The snow doesn't bother them, as they have on their winter wool coat. 

Sparkleberry still has her studio tour holiday ribbon on. 

She is such a sweetheart!

She has provided the best wool for our winter blankets this year. Thanks Sparkleberry!

Hugs and kisses

Come on up and have some grain.

Mocha (aka Rasta Girl) just loves the snow.

I don't know why Casey has his eyes closed, maybe it's snow blindness or his best 'Zoolander' look.

The retrievers told me they were getting cold butts posing for so long.

So, come on in for a look-see around the house.

This little book was written by Houston's aunt, "Christmas at Thunder Gap."

I decided to stick with the white mantle again this year.

This candelabra is from my German cousins from Nuremburg.

The Chirp booth at Ginger & Spice

I found this old window at our local dump, cleaned it up and now it's sold. Booya!

I decorated just a wee bit up in Cumberland. I was up there last week and hosted a little get together with girlfriends so had to throw a bit of greens around.

This was taken just an hour ago, a beautiful greeting for Christmas Day. What a treat to have a white Christmas! 
From my home to yours, have a wonderful holiday with family and friends. Eat, drink and be merry!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants
to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
had to tell someone!

I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found
any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
me. In my opinion, if all website owners
and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more
useful than ever before.
