White Winter

Decision Dilemma!
Should I strap on a pair of skates and enjoy this cool weather...

or stay cuddled under a down comforter
and wile way the hours with a hot cup a tea, new magazines...

and lovely books....

with my special dog, Krumpet

as it has been snowing so much here and we are expecting more...

I use to love sledding in the snow,
now I am more of a snow picture-taker...

I am definitely thinking about my next trip to Paris...

and the so cool picture I left behind at the Paris Flea Market
of the Mona Lisa and a Dog
-got Krumpet son after my return...

after considering all those great choices,
in the words of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz

"There is no place like home"
Happy White Wednesday

and always inspired by Debra at


thank you Debra for the kind words and mention on your post sweet friend

I would pick the second choice and stay under the down comforter with tea and magazines!!!!!

Rebecca said...

Hope your Christmas was all you hoped it to be and wishing you a new year filled with love and warmth...
Let me know if you need a partner in Paris!

Dear Karen,
I think the down comforter in your beautiful room with those old French Books, hot earl grey tea and Crumpet would be my choice by far. To me that is all heaven!
Hugs to a shinny bright New Year!

Blondie's Journal said...

I'd love to snuggle in that beautiful bedroom, too!

Wishing you the best New Year!


Heaven's Walk said...

Ohhhh....I'd definitely stay cuddled in that wonderful bed with sweet Krumpet! I know I hate going out in the snow...until the sun comes out again. I'm such a wuss.... lol! Happy WW to you!

No question, I'd stay in that comfy bed snuggled under a big comforter. A hot cup of tea and a good book in hand.

Karena said...

Happiest of Holidays & All the Best in the New Year!

Staying home cuddled up in bed sounds great to me! We've had tons of rain and our snow is gone for now! Supposed to be 59 tomorrow! Can you believe that? Need a good day so we can load the box truck for the next show! Have a Happy New Year!

Custom Comforts said...

I would definitely stay in that wonderfully cozy looking bed. Don't see the dilemma here. It's a no-brainer for me, but then I'm a lot older than you. Enjoy your snow.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

OH...you'd enjoy that bed so much more after a skate around on the pond :) Love that dog figurine...soooo adorable!
Wishing you a wonderful 2011 Karen! We're looking forward to blogging with you!

That bed looks so COMFY! IS it birds eye maple? It is a beauty. And how cool is that you have the water color of your home from the 30s. Thank You for stopping by and have a great NewYear!................Julian

I'd make the same choice!

Debra@CommonGround said...

Hi Karen!!! I vote for playing in the snow and then jumping under the comforter with a cup of hot chocolate. Stay warm up there! Have Happy Happy New Year,

Such a dilemma! But, there is no place like home.
Happy New Year.
