Tis The Season......

Even though the first day of Winter is not officially here until December 21st, I am already in a winter mood. I have started dreaming of snow and hoping, "maybe this is the year we get a decent snowfall." Vintage winter imagery is delightful. So much snow but still so much warmth!

I love songs about winter from the greats like Dean, Bing, Andy, and Ella. I would love to curl up in front of a fire, sipping a Hot Toddy.

Winter shopping is also a delight! It would be so nice to stroll down busy bustling streets like the shoppers in The Bishop's Wife. I remember gazing in windows dressed for winter as a little girl. But now the delight in winter shopping comes from the goodies that can be found online. Here are some treasures I have found while browsing some of my favorite shops:

This coat would keep any vintage lady warm. It's from 13bees on Etsy.

And wouldn't it look spectacular paired with this hat from Helen's Hassack!
I know there are many who don't like the winter, snow and cold, but I believe there are many wonderful delights that come with the season. Please share some of your favorite things about winter!


  1. I'm with you, love the winter! The Bishop's Wife is one of my favorite movies and I dust off my copy every holiday season. How I wish we had the small town business street, hat shops, christmas tree delivery and townspeople who still smile, nod and wish you a Merry Christmas even if they don't know you.

  2. I do the same thing with The Bishop's Wife. It along with Christmas In Connecticut come out yearly along with a few others. It just wouldn't be Christmastime with out them!

  3. I love winter too! It's my favourite of all. :) I love:
    -being able to play Lounge Christmas music,
    -decorating my tree,
    -Wearing mink berets and beautiful long coats,
    -knitting in front of a fire,
    -hot chocolate,
    -trudging through lovely snow in the Great Canadian Winter tradition,
    and last but not least -

  4. Ooh...I do love winter. I can't seem to be festive without snow!

  5. I love winter! Still waiting for snow here in Western New York State.
    My favorite part about winter, I suppose, is all the fun clothing that is appropriate to wear during this season. Fur coats, festive hats and lots of wool! I also love all the tradition that comes with winter and Christmas. And, of course the music, I am enjoying what you are playing here on your blog!

  6. thank you for display my hat on your blog!!
