A Snowy Farmhouse Christmas


This past winter, our little farm was blanketed with over a foot of snow for several weeks. And, I have to confess, I loved it! Truth is, I'm still a bit like a schoolgirl when it starts to snow each year. I'm delighted by the thought of staying home together, going sledding, hot cocoa around the fire, and being hunkered down as a family. There's something magical about those Mother Nature imposed stay-cations.

Last weekend, the clouds spit out a few (and I do mean a "few") flakes, while I crossed my fingers for a winter wonderland. It hasn't happened yet, and I'm still very much dreaming of a white Christmas.

In the meantime, I decided to round up a collection of my favorite snowy and wintertime farmhouses. I hope this compilation will bring you those same childhood feelings you remember having while waiting for a snow day!

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
--Lewis Carroll

"Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
