  1. The view from your cottage is so pretty! I know it’s cold there, and that isn’t always fun, but I’m jealous of your snow.


  2. This is so sweet! I remember you having a post with your garden, but may not have noticed this darling fairy village. Those little cottages match your own so nicely! I think the snow does create a different kind of fairy tale setting! When I watched the two movies this past week, “Mirror, Mirror” and “Snow White and the Huntsman” it made me really like the former, since there is humor in it. Not a lot, but enough that it wasn’t too scary. Anyway, Snow White would like your little wintry fairy land!


  3. what a beautiful photograph, you should have this framed, it amazes me how you guys can get through all of this and the mess it must make when it melts. I went to the snow once and never again, I was 8 mths pregnant and looked like a snow man, rugged up in many jackets, scarf, hat, gumboots – such a look! The fairy garden is sweet, if we had that type of thing over here it would be vandalised and have graffiti continually 😦 xx


  4. See, Beth, the cottage isn’t so tiny after all, compared to the fairy garden village housing. Anyway, smaller footprint is definitely the way to go. I love the view from the cottage this morning, cold as it appears.


  5. Great pictures. I am so glad that I can look at snow and cold and not be in it.
    Again I want to thank you for liking one of my posts, this time it was, “River Congo – Excerpt 26” on
    Sorry it was such a long post, but I just couldn’t find a convenient place to break it. – Thanks again and Aloha – pjs.
