Winter wonderland and a card from sweet Donna

Happy Friday! Well, we had some snow here already - and I thought it was quite a lot. Then the weather turned warmer and everything melted away again. But tonight it came back and now I know it wasn't a lot before! I can't remember that schools were closed because of snow here in our region before. My husband stayed home from work today because most of the highways are closed due to accidents and we walked our little girl to Kindergarten together. Here are some impressions of our Winter Wonderland:


Our garden - so beautiful that the sun came out and everything glistened!



My favorite deckchair has a new upholstery.



I love this pic of the bikes! It shows the amount of snow best when looking at the basket!



A pretty tree from our neighbor's garden - still some red berries on it!

Now to a card I received from sweet Donna! I was smiling broadly when the postman handed me over an envelope from Hawaii and delighted to find this:


Isn't it the cutest? So honored to own an original from Donna now! Thanks again sweet friend!!

Ok, I hope you are safe and warm everybody! Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Oh Vanessa, das sieht sooo toll aus bei Euch. Hier ist der Schnee weg und dafür regnet es unaufhörlich. Aber es soll ja wieder kälter werden hier im Rheinland und dann bekommen wir vielleicht auch einen Fahrradkorb voll Schnee. ;) :)

Hab ein schönes Wochenende, Tina

Beautiful photos of the snow, love the one of your garden in the sun - amazing! You said you would take one so I was looking out for it! As of today we have had no snow in the south. But I would love to have a couple of days of it!
