A Snow Day in The South

Here in North Carolina a snow day is a nice event. It doesn’t happen that often and when it does a flurry of excitement abounds. Of course not all people get excited over it but they are grumps! I for one love the snow. I guess it is just like with most things too much of something can be just too much. I don’t take it for granted because it is so rare and my whole philosophy is if it is going to be cold and miserable nature might as well give me something pretty to look at. All the things you have probably heard about the southerners and snow are probably true. No we can’t drive in it and I for one don’t care to! I just wanted to share a little of my snow joy with you with a few pictures my husband and I have taken around our little town in rural ,eastern North Carolina of the two snow days we have had so far this winter.

The Fabulously Festive Homes.com Contest on Olioboard

Olioboard, one of my favorite websites, has another sponsored contest going on. This one is sponsored by Homes. com and will be judged by Courtney Whitmore of Pizzazzerie. Here is the link to the contest on Olioboard. https://olioboard.com/challenges/278-the-fabulously-festive-homes-com-design-contest I have two entries entered in to the contest and there are many beautiful boards in the running. For my first board I wanted to use colors that I love that aren’t quite as traditional.

All I Want for Christmas is You

Cozy Country Christmas

For my second entry I wanted to create a room that was warm, cozy and inviting. This one has a more traditional color scheme and is a little bit country. I always love to see the wonderful ideas and inspiration people come up with for decorating for the holidays. If you head over to Olioboard you can see many more truly festive designs.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone that is celebrating Thanksgiving today has a wonderful day filled with food, friends, family and all the comforts life has to offer. I try to approach each day with a grateful heart and an opportunity to make the world around me a better place. Life itself is a blessing, even if that is the only one you think you have. Many blessings and much love to you and yours!
