hello...

Spring?
I've been wanting to see 
how my newly painted white house
would look in the snow.

I didn't think 
I would have to wait
 until the first day of spring.


go figure.

well how about that, we were 20 degrees cooler today than yesterday....which was still 20 degrees above our normal! Usually still in the 30's our Spring has brought us 50's and up so far! Just loving it.
Your house looks fabulous with or without snow.

It does look pretty! Sorry you got snow today. It was unusually warm here today at 70 F. Normally it would be about 34 - 36F. We'll be getting snow Saturday night but until then I'll enjoy the sunshine and warm breezes. Your snow is probably gone now right? Blessings, Pamela

Ellen said...

Your house looks stunning against a soft blanket of snow.You are not having the weather we are.It is in the 80's here.Most unusual for this time of the year.That is more like June weather for us.

Oh my, with so many of us enjoying such warm temps and you my friend have snow. That Painted Lady looks beautiful no matter what the weather is outside. Hope the snow is short lived and Spring will be blooming out there soon.

That seems to be the way it's been this year. I think it looks so beautiful, just enough contrast. Diane

That is funny. We are still having snow here too. Crazy. Your house has so much personality--I love it!

Too funny, but maybe not funny?? We have had temps in the high 80's in southeast Michigan! UNHEARD of at this time of year. My lilacs have buds on them already!! Hope it warms up for you soon!

Isn't that just the way it goes?!!

It looks beautiful in the snow, now I can't wait to see what it looks like with your beautiful gardens in bloom.

Faded Charm said...

Looks pretty good in Snow, don't ya think? Even so, I'm so ready for warmer sunny weather. I think I'll probably wake up to more white stuff in the morning and next couple days. Will it ever end????

Carol Ann said...

Snow? Very pretty picture. I would have liked to get cooled off in that snow this afternoon as I was going for a walk, it was 86 degrees here in Indiana! Such really strange weather!

That is exactly what I am expecting to happen around here! I think it was almost 80 here yesterday and they say we broke records... I am still trying to debate whether to rake the leaves off of my garden. Your home looks beautiful in the snow!!!

Lisa said...

Hi Renee,
It's been ages since I've been on the blogs. Long story, longer winter, LOL. Your house is just so perfect. I love the detail & all the little tucked away spaces like the pantry & stairs. I can't wait to see what you do. Hope your roses bloom soon.

A few years ago our first day of spring brought 6" of snow! Yesterday it brought rain. Enjoy!

podso said...

Somewhere it's still winter and not 20 degrees warmer than normal? Enjoy your brief snow. I would guess it won't last long. Your house looks pretty in the snow! And I love your front hall...wonderful staircase. I'm amazed at your wall paper removal--considering I worked 17 hours on a small patch of, yes, unprepped right on unpainted wallboard wall paper. Finally gave up!

Karen Bates said...

Yep, go figure! But it looks so lovely! We just got some snow too! Sheesh!

Cynthia said...

It does look pretty so vintage. The weather has been so weird. In New Jersey they say we are three weeks ahead of schedule with everything because it has been so warm.

Karen's Place said...

You always make me smile when I read you blog. You home is beautiful in the snow. A fine grand lady! I glad she has you to show her beauty.

mudderbear said...

That's funny, but I know what you're talking about. We haven't had a big snowstorm yet. Your house is just awesome in the snow. It looks like home, like any of us out here would be so welcome there.

Romantic Whites said...

So Charming! Just you wait when it's full blown 90 degrees of Summer... we'll all be begging for you snow in that lovely photo! (New follower here :)

Yes, your home with the snow does look like a beautiful vintage post card. Lovely. As for snow on the first day of Spring: think Mr. Winter was miffed that he did not act all big and blustery in some parts of the country, so he wanted to have the last laugh by dumping snow on the first day of Spring! Blessings.

EllenaElizabeth said...

Looks just picture postcard perfect. Thanks for sharing.

❁Velma ~Down Our Country Road❁ said...

Oh goodness! We have been experiencing unusually warm temps this winter and things started popping up green really early but we've been known to have a hard freeze as late as the first of April. So far, so good! Spring is in full force.
