some icy, snowy winter 'corners'

After some computer problems, I am back again to blogging, just in time for 'corners of my home' Thursday. While I was out gathering eggs the other day, I took the camera out to capture the beauty Mother Nature left behind from a recent ice storm. Above is my lilac bush completely coated in ice.
Below, Zoe walked with me through the pines whose boughs are weighted down by all the snow & ice. It reminded me very much of the winter scenes from the movie Narnia...

Every stalk of weed in the field is an icy spear and absolutely gorgeous when the sun hits them...
The crabapple tree also is encased...
I have been enjoying my new sewing machine and getting some sewing projects done; will post some pictures tomorrow. I started a new knitting project~something for summer~and I will try to get pictures of the sweater I made for Stephanie for Christmas.

For today, I think I'll do some painting ~ another yard sale cubby for the workroom in green to match the little chest of drawers~ and I need to make some yogurt and granola...

Have a great day!

  5. Wow! I know that the ice hasn't been much fun to live with, but those photos are GORGEOUS. I especially love the one of the berries enclosed in ice.

  6. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures. It does look like Narnia. And finally winter in NY, right? We enjoyed about an inch this morning on the island. The kids were so excited for the first snowfall of the year. Our puppy enjoyed it, too. Cheers! LA

  10. Fabulous photos! Narnia it is! We have had our share of ice and snow this last week also! The chickens are none too pleased, either. They come out for their pan of fresh greens and stale bread, and high tail it right back into the hen house!

  14. Beautiful. Cold, but beautiful. :)I haven't seen the Narnia movie yet but it does look as I've pictured it in my mind so many times while reading the books.

    I have yogurt, granola (or grapenuts) and apple pieces mixed together for breakfast almost every morning. It's almost like having waldorf salad. yum.

    I really enjoy my jam jar! I gave Tim the last chocolate as part of his birthday gift. I know. I need a medal or something, huh? :) It wasn't offered lightly. lol
