~Winter Scenes ~


I went walking in a Winter Wonderland


Wrapped up in my favorite velvet coat



I love traveling through the fresh fallen snow in my beautiful sleigh.






Then I woke up
and realized I was NOT Anna Karenina


and the only fur I had; 
was on my fuzzy slippers.


Oh well, says I
Life is still good.

As I snuggle close to the roaring fire 
that Mr. Wonderful prepared


To warm us on this snowy, icy, January day





And as I sit with with my hands wrapped around a steaming mug
of Ghirardelli Cocoa






I realize there is no place I'd rather be than here
snug as a bug
in my little
 Dressed Up Cottage



Take that
Anna Karenina

  1. Yum!!! I am now craving a cup or two of hot cocoa :) It's really damp and dreary in DC....no snow. Just what we call mud season. Enjoy your lovely home, Terri ~ xo, Loi

    1. Luckily we didn't have very much snow this time around. It's been a fairly mild Winter....so far. But hey, it's only mid January. :)

  2. Hot apple cider with a shot of Butterscotch Schnapps is yummy too.

  7. I love your white mugs :) I love collecting eclectic mugs! I always wanted a long hooded cape like that, and when I was a little girl,a stole was very much at the top of my list! :) Hope you're doing well!

    1. Wouldn't it be nice, if we could actually wear something like that somewhere....and it wasn't Halloween? LOL
