Dreaming in White: Snow Country Redux

I was holding out the other day.

I didn't show all the good stuff I got.  

They're all treasures. 

You can decide which...




A Quaint, Old-Fashioned Home
Kay Hoffman

I like to see a modern home
In keeping with our time,
But none I find so charming
As the quaint old-fashioned kind.

A home that has a lived-in look
With porch that's big and wide
Where hickory rockers, like old friends,
Are sitting side by side.

Where flowers bloom in time-worn crocks
To make each day more fair--
Not plants you need to pamper,
Just the simple garden fare.

A welcome mat placed at the door,
One of a home-spun style
With words of greeting
Sure to bring the heart a smile.

Modern homes are nice to view
With their up-to-date design;
Still, it always warms my heart to see
The quaint, old-fashioned kind.

All this and more not much more than a hop, skip and a jump from our house.  

(Does anybody say that anymore, or is it just me?!)

Heart warming, isn't it, to see a farmhouse, 
all tucked in piles of white snow.
It fuels the imagination, hits the "comfort" zone 
that I think we all possess.

So...DO TELL.  

Which is your favorite photo today?  

Make it a great day!

They are all wonderful! My favorite would be the first one, though. Love the lines and detail on that beautiful home.
