Getting in the mood for Christmas

I hear the east coast of the USA had quite a bit of snow - just in time for Christmas. Although some of the people that are trying to get home or to family for the holidays might not agree. I hope you are all safe and cozy.
We had a little bit of snow last night. Not much, since the air is fairly dry, due to the very low temps (-10°C). But enough to dust everything with a bit of icing sugar, so to speak. The good news is, there will be sunshine today.
I was out early this morning to take some pictures:


fallen angel's wing powdered with snow

tiny twinkling lights

a rusty crown around a candle in a jar inside a wreath of mixed greenery
I will light the candle when dusk falls...

Have a lovely day!

We are warm and cozy, (thank you) with about as much snow on the ground as you.

There is something special about night time photos at Christmas.

That is about as much snow as we ever get. But we don't get such cold weather. Your photos are beautiful and I'd love to see your lovely lumnarie lit at dusk.

beautiful photos... i am in nj and the snow has just started during the early hours of the morning... there are heavy winds, but it is beautiful... and i must confess, just what i needed... being confined to the house gives me time to do things like bake cookies - hoping for a peaceful, homey day...

This is my first full time winter in a warm state and I am loving the no snow thins. I find that people tend to decorate their homes with lights for Christmas more then ever I think it is because of the lack of cold and snow that normally says christmas to a lot of these snow birds here in AZ

Renate, thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures. I love the peaceful vignette with the wreath of greenery surrounding the jar. What a great idea to light the candle at night - so warm and welcoming.
