Snow, Snow, Snow!

Hello my dear friends,

finally ... a week ago it snowed here again in south~western Ontario and it is looking lovely!!
(I am a bit behind with sharing this post.)

 I think that snow can make almost everything beautiful and when you add lights it becomes magical in my eyes. I am sorry for the bad pictures ~ my camera didn't want to work properly in the cold and snow but you can still get the idea of how beautiful it looked outside that night.
~ I love snow!~
 Unfortuately I had a little bad luck with it as well though. I have two lovely large reindeer that light up and even move parts of their bodies. Both of these were standing outside my dining room window when it began to become stormy and both of them ended up damaged to the point that I had to take them down before the snow came and replace them with a string of snowflake lights but I still love the way the snow makes our garden light up at night!

A little update on our basement ...

  ... it still isn't finished yet! We are planning on laying our own floors which I hope will go well but we still have a few issues that need addressing. Hopefully we can sort them out very fast with our contractor. This project was meant to be approx. 4 to 6 weeks no longer but now we are in week 9 or maybe it is already week 10 .. and I am slowly but surely wanting this to finally come to an end. I will keep you up to date on this in future posts.

So, don't forget to stop by and visit me here at Todolwen some time soon again.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. You are so right, snow and twinkly lights make for a beautiful winter wonderland. What a shame that your reindeer got damaged.

  2. The pictures are so pretty, I to love the looks of Christmas lights under a blanket of snow. Hope all goes well with the basement!

  3. It is wonderful ! I love swow also. I wish you an Happy New Year.

  4. The snow is beautiful!I would love to see it falling here.Happy New Year!Hugs,Jen

  5. I agree, I love to see the lights shining through a layer of snow. We had just enough before Christmas to have that affect. And it's been cold enough to keep the snow there!! We've been down into the single digits.. tonight will be single to possible double digits BELOW zero!!!
    Good luck with finishing up the basement.

  6. I love the way your lights look with all the snow, the colors are gorgeous. A very Happy New Year to you:-)
