winter white

















































what are you saying little bambi?










































all photos taken by me.... in my winter white dining room and at Radnor Lake, on a delightful walk with my parents...my parents LOVE the great outdoors as much as i do....it wasn't really snowing...i added the snow in photoshop..... we encountered many deer on our walk...the bambi i shared with you, with his little mouth open.... looked as if he had something to say.....



i think, perhaps....if he could... he would like to give us a gentle reminder.....



to slow down a bit

and enjoy this magical season

of joy and celebration....

to savor the simple pleasures of family togetherness......

and to be fully present in our own lives and in the lives around us....

and remember

the true

reason for the season.


smart little deer one.

Your home is so pretty. I loved all of the pictures. With the amount of snow you added, I did think it was real. My favorite picture was the one with all the white trees and one single green tree. That must have been a really nice walk to take such nice pictures. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

The purity of white is soothing, inspiring, and cleansing. Most of all, however, it is magical.

Thank you for sharing these pictures with us.

Greetings from France,
