red and white Christmas

winter white



                                                 



We woke up to our first snowfall of the season this morning.
It snowed about 5 cm. (3 inches) but it was already melted off the trees by noon.  The ground is still white but I doubt it will last long.


We need to get our patio chairs stored away this weekend!




Speaking of winter white ~



I gathered my mini white pumpkins into a milk glass bowl...






...and raised them up on a pedestal.





They won't be here long.

They'll soon be replaced by a silver bowl filled with vintage glass Christmas ornaments.

That bit of snow makes we want to get out the Christmas decorations now.  Does it do that to you?
By Monday it will feel like spring again with mild temperatures.


I would like to welcome all my new followers.  Thanks so much for joining me here.  Please don't forget to leave a comment so I'll know you stopped by.

I hope you are enjoying your week.

Blessings,

Pamela

  10. Oh, isn't that pretty! We went to the Christmas extravaganza the big garden centre here has every year. Wine and cheese, a jazz group and a band playing Christmas carols and decorations in every colour. Yes, I wanted to come right home and start pulling out the boxes.
    I really like white pumpkins and yours look stunning in the milk glass.

  15. Hello Pamela, Those little white gourd pumpkins look so good in your white bowl. Don't you just love white with white. I do. I bought a few Christmas gifts and lots of wrapping paper the other day. Must remember to buy the scotch tape!!!!!!!!

  20. It seems so strange now snow. Rarely snowing here in November. Though I remember a snow storm. I was worried if my kids would come home.

    Beautiful pictures. I am a beginner.

  21. Hello my friend,
    I wanted to stop over and say hi, we're still on the road visiting our girls one by one. I won't be around at all, the grand kiddos need our attention, and they make sure we know it! :)
    I love your snow photos, we saw snow in Prince George and Ft. St. John, even Edmonton, but not in Vancouver. I am praying for clear roads next Friday when we will be making our way home across Montana and North Dakota.
    Have a great weekend, Cindy

  22. I'm not ready to face winter yet, but I know it's on the way! I've taken down my fall decor and am ready for Christmas but I'll wait a bit. Your snow photos are pretty and I love the white pumpkins. Enjoy your day and the weekend!

  23. Love the tease of the first winter snow . . . I really liked your idea of whie pumpkins in milk glass, very nice.

  24. Glad to know that it didn't last nor did ours. I'm not ready. It was a cold and blistering week and I am ready for more temperate weather. No, not one bit tempted to get out the Christmas things. I may even skip Christmas this year. Ha!

  25. I really like your bowl, which seems perfect for displaying so many items. Very festive. The snow is lovely...but it's way too early. I'm glad it's going to melt soon.

  26. The white punkins are so neat... I can't remember ever seeing one around here. LoL!

    It rarely snows around here, anymore, but I always think of Christmases as a kid when it does.

  27. Snow already!!!!! We couldn't get to NY from Istanbul on Thurs. due to snow (in NYC) and canceled flight so came to Toronto. Was amazed at the security there - must have gone through 8 different checks requiring so much lifting of luggage, 'undressing' and both Canadian and US Customs............we were almost dropping from exhaustion!

    Beautiful here in NC - sunny, warm Fall days with cooler nights..............and once again I'm unpacking but getting ready to do it all again in a few weeks when we head to England for Christmas!

    Thanks for your comments dear -always love to hear from you and I will try to catch up soon.

  29. Beautiful, Pamela! We put our patio furniture away & put snow tires on the vehicles in Sept. Felt a little silly driving around with snow tires on dry streets, but at least we're ready!!! :)

    We have about an 1" of the white stuff outside, but it will melt in a couple of days!

  30. Oh my...snow?!! It was 71 degrees yesterday. But I love your white pumpkins nestled in the white bowl and can envision it filled with winter's array, too.
