Frozen Mosaics

We tossed a heavy rock into the middle of the pond to test the ice. It just gave a big thud when it landed there.

We found some new lighting features to help the dark corners of this room.

I made that simple needlepoint ages ago when we were first married. We are warm and cozy in our country bungalow despite the freezing temperatures last week. We’ve had a few days well above freezing now and enjoyed some blue skies and sunshine today.

I’ve started some Christmas decorating in the midst of Dear’s painting projects. Have you started any Christmas preparations?

Thank you to Angie for hosting Mosaic Monday.

  1. Not even thinking about Christmas yet! We had our family celebrations at Thanksgiving and loved it all. Still not too cold over here on this side of the mountains but we’ve had blessed rain!
    We need it (as you know/remember ).The lovebirds needlework is really sweet and I love the block sign. Thankful is a good way to be in any and every season.

  2. It’s grey and dark here today, with rain beginning. I’ve started a few Christmas preparations – we’re having a handmade Christmas this year, so it’s taken some planning. So far so good! Have a good week.

  3. Ellen, it’s beautiful here in TX. We’ve enjoyed a lovely autumn with crisp temperatures. Love it!
    Our Thanksgiving was lovely and yes, I’m on to decorating and getting ready for Christmas. Enjoy the last week of November.

  4. Hello, we have chilly and rainy weather off and on. I decorated my Christmas tree yesterday, just a small pre-lit tree. Your home is beautiful. Have a happy day and a great new week ahead!

  5. You can get really addicted to needlepoint (my own experience) 🙂 Your work is pretty. Getting colder and more Christmassy here too. Happy MM.

  6. Looks like a cozy place. We decorated our Bellingham condo before leaving to come home to our cabin in Powell River, BC. That way it will be ready to go when we return to spend the holiday season with a good friend that lives there. With no family good friends are very important. – Margy

  7. It’s such a wonderful time of year. It makes my heart ever so happy! Enjoy your decorating journey. Mine is coming bit by bit. 🙂
    hugs,

  8. I love putting light in dark corners!
    You must really have a thick layer of ice to hold up that rock!
    Stay warm while your decorating. I’m still putting mine off!

  9. Ellen – it has been warmer here – all the way up to 35 degrees – enough for some guys to be out and about in shorts!!! The only Christmas decorating we have done is outdoor lights – we wanted to have them on when our guests departed after Thanksgiving dinner. But we will start some serious decorating tomorrow – watch out! Thanks for linking up to Mosaic Monday!

  10. Your home looks lovely, Ellen! Our weather has been sunny and thankfully not too cold as yet. I hope to begin decorating this week — a little at a time–I did order my Christmas cards today and a few gifts for the grandchildren.

  11. Ellen, I make Christmas cards all year long so those just need writing in. I have to dig out the list and think about the few gifts I need to buy. Caramel popcorn is one of my traditions. I bought supplies yesterday. Have a great week. Sylvia D.

  12. A stone’s thud on ice is a sound I have yet to hear. Hmmmm. You’ve got me wondering. I hung some metal Christmas decorations from the ceiling last week. It’s a very slow evolution of decorating for me.
