Perfect Snow & a Snowman Ornie

Most of yesterday morning the snow fell slowly, tiny flakes and seemed to take forever to cover the grass. However, around 3pm or so it really started to kick it up and started snowing very heavily through the night.

As I went to bed last night I gave one last look out the front and the back and noticed my back porch that all 3 steps were covered up to the sliding door. When I opened the front door the screen door was blocked by snow. I went to bed and decided I will wake up early so I can be sure to get out and take some photos of the beautiful landscape and all the snow!

Here’s a photo of my festive red Christmas lights outside as the snow started to pile up before I went to sleep Saturday night.

Here’s a few photos. I love snowy drapes over pine trees and I love pristine everything looked before the sun came out, the shovels, and the snow plow disturbed the setting. It was absolutely beautiful. That is .. until we had to start digging ourselves out. It took about 2 hours to clear out the driveway and front walk.

This was truly a beautiful snow storm because there was no mixture of ice, sleet, or rain in the precipitation. Just pure sugary snow that sparkled everywhere.

Another reason it was perfect is because I did not have to drive or go anywhere. I just stayed inside where it was warm, had my coffee, and my art work to keep me busy.

I knew it was important to get the photos before the sun came out. Without any shadows from the sun it made the photos so easy to take.

This is my art room building. Ahhh. just kidding. Its our shed in the back yard. 😉

So how did I keep busy during the snow storm? Artwork of course! Here’s my latest snowman ornament. Born on Dec 19th, 2009. She is currently available in my Etsy Shop.

Her colors are pink and aqua! She is real cute.
