Hi guys! Actually these first 2 pics are from 2 days ago when we got minutes of snow. Which in East TN is pretty much a novelty.
Big beautiful flakes, gone in minutes..
Today came the ice..it is still raining, sleeting, ice-ing as I type. Ice is troublesome, can be deadly, but is beautiful!
Everything from weeds to grass takes on a coat of diamonds... I was trying to snap a few pics without slipping and falling!
Wild rose hips are a spot of color in the neutral winter landscape.
I don't know exactly WHAT this horrible weed is..the flowers are yellow and the seeds are horrible..they stick to you at the slightest provocation. Maybe some sort of wild marigold? The ice turned them into pretty little starbursts!
A vintage insulator that tops my grape arbor...
Even lowly chicken wire takes on a coat.
My great grandpa's barn cupola wearing an icy necklace....
Even the weeds in my sleeping garden look pretty!
A final touch of green to remind myself that Spring is right around the corner! Hope you all are staying safe and warm! Til next time, Julia
Hi! I am a former SD girl..now a TN woman. I have a great family..wonderful husband, 2 sons, 2 daughters and a grandson. I have 2 Etsy shops, https://hopeandjoyhome.etsy.com is the shop I sell vintage things in and https://hopeandjoystudios.etsy.com is the shop I sell handmade in. I also help my husband with his Etsy shop https://theindustrialfarmer.etsy.com . I love to create! I like to garden but my attention generally wanes about July and it is every man for himself. I am in the process of turning my daughter's former bedroom into my studio and will be posting pics. I love to laugh..drink coffee and eat chocolate..more to come!
