Snow Day



Here is another little scene from near my favorite thrift store.  Just enough snow to look pretty.  I took this last week.  By today, we should be in the middle of a big bunch of "wintry mix."  We get a lot of wintry mix in New Jersey -- snow, sleet, freezing rain.  I don't look forward to it, except maybe that I might be able to get a few pretty ice photos.   So I think I'll be sitting in front of the fire today, with a good book and a cup of tea.  :)

Stay warm, dear bloggers!

  1. This reminds me of a little New England town, somewhere in Vermont ! I am ashamed to say that I never pictured New Jersey like this beautiful photo - I always pictured big cities and lots of suburbs ! See how wrong one can be !!

  3. Lovely--looks like a Christmas card. I am a summer person myself, but a couple of snow days in winter is all we get here in the South, and we just missed the ice storm! I sat in front of the fireplace yesterday with my tea. It was wonderful!

  4. When I think of New Jersey, I don't think of these quaint scenes. Guess that my outlook needs refreshing. Gosh, this must be a big old storm if we're both in a snow day and so inspired that we both name our posts "Snow Day." ;>

  5. I love that you're enlightening the world on the beautiful places in New Jersey. I was born there and visit often, as I have lots of family there. It's a beautiful state!

  6. I agree with Vee. Your photos need to be the posters for NJ!

  8. Mary, thank you for helping to improve New Jersey's tarnished image! There are many beautiful places in our state... and how many people know that there are more HORSES per square mile in NJ than in any other state in the USA? Keep the lovely photos coming. And stay warm and off the ice!

  9. As Kelly Ripa always says NJ is known for Jersey corn, Jersey tomatoes (is it also quilting) ???

    Nice photo Mary...

  10. With kids in NYC and in Chicago, I am always hoping that snow is scenic and cozy to them ... and not just cold and nasty. I'm just wishing they lived at that thrift store. Your photos are fabulous.

  11. Another snow day from school today. I don't have a fire, but am hanging out with a book. It's pretty foggy out there.

  12. I like your plan. A good book, fire and tea sound wonderful. I remember that weather. We lived in New York for 2 years, luckily here in Utah we usually just get the snow part.

  17. Your photo reminds me of the New England area...very nice. I understand the weather is pretty crazy in the states these days, my parents live in Texas and have experienced enough ice to close schools..I love winter but can do without the ice thanks!!! Enjoy your snow day; the fire, book, and tea sound delightful!
