Snow, snow, snow!

Snow in the south makes me giddy, and I always want to go outside and enjoy the Winter Wonderland. We’ve had snow in North Carolina for four days in a row now, and I am doing a happy dance! I love the whole idea of snow–especially walking in it and hearing it crunch under my boots. I’ve also learned a little more about my new neighborhood with this round of winter weather. Just as I wondered how I would get down the ridge to the main road, the most beautiful red pick-up truck came plowing down the lane with a snow pusher attached to the front and a salt spreader attached to the tailgate. We do love our pick-ups in the south! If you have not had any snow yet, please enjoy a little of mine.

    love how the snow makes the world so quiet. So fresh.

    ps: I hunted down your towel bar at Boxwoods…found it, but then chickened out. Want it….but “need” a place for it. Another house perhaps?!

    Beautiful, Lissy! And Lord have mercy it is even snowing up here at Rancho La Zaca this morning, which happens, like, never. This is Southern California for heaven’s sake! So it won’t stick… Love your photos. You have such a good eye. xo Frances

      Frances, Snow in Southern California?! Wow, everyone must be running outside to see more. I love this house–I would have never designed a house like this, but it just feel great.
