The Calm After the Storm

After the big snowstorm, the sun broke through and dazzled the snow into diamonds...

It was beautiful and warm in the sunroom...

In honour of Valentine's Day (I'm not much for decorating for Valentine's), I hung up a horseshoe heart that my honorary nephew, Josh made.  He is learning to be a blacksmith and is making some great decorative pieces...

I hung it in the sunroom over a picture of my cats and a picture of my Mom...

The sun is streaming in through the blinds...and painting tree shadows on the snow outside...

The cats are warm inside, taking it all in.  Everything that happens in the neighbourhood is noticed by their sharp little eyes...

We are joining Claudia for A Favourite Thing and Elaine for a Sunny Simple Sunday.

Julie (and Finn and Lucy)


  1. Hi Julie, glad your safe and sound....Nasty snow storm......beautiful pictures.....Sweet kitty's in the porch.....Blessings Francine.

  2. Julie - I don't know how you all survive all of that cold and snow. But, I guess you are probably use to it. I would be freezing to death! That horseshoe is really cute. I've never seen one done like that. Really neat.

    Stay warm and cozy.


  3. You got a lot more snow than we did. Stay warm!

  4. Look at that lovely snow....love the tree and shadows picture!

  5. Your photos are beautiful. Love the horseshoe, what a neat idea! Your "painting tree shadows" is pure poetry. Thanks!

  6. Wow, what a winter wonderland! Great photos of the snow. I hope y'all had a great Valentine's Day!
