The Colors of Winter

Marci from Stone Cottage Adventures was sweet enough to guest post today while I'm away on vacation. Check out her blog if sewing, crafts, and recipes are up your alley. 



The colors of Spring are so vibrant.  Do you think we would appreciate them as much without the greys and taupes of winter?  The cold sky is crimson and the soil is at rest. 

Our guest bedroom was recently revamped on a cold Winter's eve inspired by the colors of these quiet, dark months.  (For other guest room posts, click  here and there.)

The color palette is very subdued with touches of white and just a nod to Valentine's Day.

Our winter wedding color was evergreen.  The flower arrangements held ivy mixed with roses that were champagne and white.  My groom wore a black tuxedo.  Interpreting our wedding into throw pillows made my heart smile.  ;-)   

Grow Old With Me

This will be the twenty-seventh time I've celebrated Valentine's Day with Handsome Husband.  I so hope we will have at least twenty-seven more!

Sleds have been pulled from their dusty hiding places.  Perhaps they will be tugged along with the laughter of children this winter.

 Wedding photos and love birds have snuggled into a shelf with a bouquet of white roses.

An evergreen shimmers with frost and reflects the sunrise.

Frosty Evergreen

What color is winter to you?  Does it make you think of ivy, wedding bells and white roses?
