The Bay...

...at 6* Fahrenheit!

The Winter Fairy's Wand...

Log with ice crystals

***
Frozen tideland

Washed ashore; now sporting a
fashionable winter hairdo!


***
Even salt water freezes at 6*!

An icy flounce on the skirts of the bank

Joining Susan for
and Kathleen for

"He casts forth His ice as fragments;
Who can stand before His cold?"
Psalm 147:17

I enjoyed seeing all your great ice scenes. I am thankful we have not had anything like that yet. Even tho I am not for ice, the picture with ice cycles looks like hanging on cloths line.

Dear Lady Farmer,

Thank goodness, when it's cold, at least it's beautiful!

It's supposed to get five below zero tonight, so it should be REAL pretty!

Love,

brr...but so beautiful! We just can't seem to warm-up at our house. Our poor little woodstove has been working overtime to keep us warm!
Thank you for sharing such beautiful photos!

Blessings!

Dear Lady Farmer,

The coldest it has gotten here is 16 degrees ~ brrr! 6 degrees.

The pictures are lovely...I can feel the quietness and the beautiful solitude.

Thank you for sharing and braving the cold to capture it all.

I hope you had a nice, hot cup of tea afterwards :)

Haha... "Ice flounce!" Love it. Love the tennis ball, too (that is a tennis ball, right?) -- wow. Six degrees. Really? YIKES... gorgeous, but holy moly that is COLD. What does January bring? Or shouldn't I ask?

Dear Lady Farmer,

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing these beautiful photos! I hope that you were able to warm up afterward. Isn't everything so beautiful, the Lord took glitter and sprinkled it :)

It is 2 degrees right now, so I am sitting in front of the woodstove with a Hot Cocoa with Homemade marshmallows :)

have a blessed day my friend :)

Love,
Sharon

Hey Sweetie...Thanks for visiting again...

The Stocking are made with quilt batting and different kinds of vintage fabrics. I love old damasks (tablecloths) as they work up lovely. Vintage trims and laces make them shine! I'm glad you like them.

Now...next time you are at a sale grab some of those old linens and things. You'll make good use out of them for sure.

Hugs to you~

Love, Rebecca

Dear Raeann,

Your lovely photograph of the icicles over the water along the bank remind us of Mrs. Tiggywinkle's wash!

Your kindred spirits,
