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!
