Christmas and it's Snowing!

It snowed in the night and today we have a winter wonderland out of our back window! Do you remember my weather stick I showed you in the summer? Look at it today, it's gone quite droopy!

Those yellow leaves on the bush look a bit odd don't they amongst the whiteness?

I'm not sure if I've ever seen our christmas tree in a real snowy setting!

Here's the 'fairy' I made several years ago, still just about holding her own. Every year I get her out of the christmas box she looks a bit more worse for wear. I expect she's wondering what all that white stuff outside is, having never seen it before!
I've done a little bit of drawing recently, not sure if I've got time for Illustration Friday this week but I'll do my best! :)

Thanks Karen, we were very lucky and had one from a local school that was going to be thrown away! :)

Wonderful snowy images Jessie!:)
I love your tree... Sadly, we don't have one this year because our cat seems to enjoy jumping into the branches, chewing the fairy lights and the fairy!:(
Best wishes for Christmas and Happy New Year.
Enjoy playing in the snow!

Jessie, love your room that is so close to outside! The old piano!

You know I like this Frida more now you have said chocolate box.
I looked at her again and she was so much more appealing. Or is it the thought of chocolates, lol?
Mmmm! Chocolate!

Have an awesome week!
