No snow here either I'm afraid... I tried to bring some colour in the grey days by giving my violets all kinds of colours today ;-)
Let's all try and bring some colour in eachothers lives to conquer the greyness of january.

No snow ever here. There's not even much on the mountains. I'm trying to decorate in whites (a stretch for me) for a winter touch. Someday I'll post pictures. Having trouble blogging lately.

No! No! Don't want any snow here! :-D Grey, cold, dreary day here also. But then a little snow would be better than the possible severe weather they are predicting for tomorrow night. :(
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Georgianna said...

Simply gorgeous, Erin! I love what you did with the locker.

It's grey here, too. Although our snow from earlier in the week is melting now. I'm just as happy without it as we were snowbound for three days. :) But it was very pretty. Hope you get some soon!

I adore grey and David. Today was beautiful in my eyes. Grey, sparse, rugged - very bronte esque. I understand these days can be somber and difficult for normal people but I find comfort in cloudy grey, wood smoke days. Heaven.

Olive Cooper said...

I love all shades of grey. Especially since my hair is grey now. I wear grey clothes now. Your images are wonderful.

Connie (aka LOU) said...

Great pictures. Locker turned out great. We now have snow......along with the cold. Brrrrrr.

Barbara Jean said...

Beautiful greys. I 'heart' grey. The nature here brings such calm to me. Thank you for sharing your lovely world.

oh darlin', if I had the usual EXTRA FIVE FEET OF SNOW that we usually have, I would send it to you TOUT DE SUITE. But we have only a sugar dusting and this is making for some strange weather. I know. I know....a little winter scenery to go with the biting cold would be nice. But you have made something beautiful out of the gray which is quite frankly, GORGEOUS in home d├ęcor, but quickly tiresome to look at OUTSIDE!

Keep making your own magic! Anita

Hey sweetie..you know I am always a little bit "grey"
:D

and snow or no snow here... It sure feels like winter, and dreary is the word for me these days. I need to visit some of your special blues..That will cheer me.

Lisa said...

I like terrarium-guy. Also, I recognize the seedpods from my tree. It's been unusually overcast here in the desert, too. Hope you get to play in some snow soon.

Carole said...

I am feeling the grey but in a good way. I always come away happy when I leave here. That piece is lovely with its crackly bits.
We still have some snow here but no sun and I so wanted to take some pics.

hugs

Don said...

No snow here but we finally got some rain so- snow in the mountains. Maybe I'll go visit.

Enjoying your greys!

Marie Grady Palcic said...

i can't decide if i love the photos, the locker, or the paintings the most...i go back and look at the post daily for inspiration. my favorite - maybe all-time - is the piece over the mantle. the wood the 3 images are attached to brings the paintings together... just love it :)

cityfarmer said...

I had the blues-grays the other day ... the sun is out today ...

thanks so much for following

Everything is beautiful Erin! Sorry, no snow to send your way. It's grey and rainy here in NY. (I'm happy to not have snow).

Oh such beautiful photos Erin. I love what you did to the cabinet. And I LOVE the rusty snaffle bit hanging from the handle.

LuLu Kellogg said...

Still no snow here too Erin! I would gladly send you some though!

Love,

No snow in LA or Ojai but we got some in the local mountains. Alas it's been a while since I have seen snow up close and personal. 2 years?

Lovely feather. Feathers feel magical and I love that they represent the element of air. I guess it still feels like magic that birds fly ... maybe that's what it is about feathers.

Still lovin' that horse painting!
