Whiteout


Yesterday I woke up to a world shrouded in white. Snow on the ground, fog in the air, it looked like the world was a canvas, waiting for someone to draw on it. The perfect backdrop for one of my favourite ModCloth-dresses! This dress needs snow, ice crystals in the air, the smell of cinnamon spice and hot mulled wine, to be drunk on moon-lit nights. Sadly, it's not available any more, but I found a real treasure chest of Yumi dresses on Asos, with hundreds of designs to choose from. 


The dogs love it here. We don't have a dog-proof fence yet (they can just go under the current one), but they are learning where the property line is, and have been behaving excellent. Tom Snow sleeps on the mat in front of our house, guarding the birds and us from the bobcat that's rumoured to stalk the neighbourhood. 

What's that noise? Is that the bobcat?

Nina, our Blue Heeler, is sleeping next to him in her little dog house, lending him moral support. Phoebe stays inside at night, due to her high-pitched bark, and the Corgi obviously sleeps next to me. 
Bear will arrive today with the last load, together with the sheep and llamas. And then they are all here!

Lily misses her big friend Bear, when I told her that he's coming today she did a little happy dance:

Dress: ModCloth (not available any more, lots of great options here)
Boots: Old Navy (these are the newer version)


TGIF!

    1. The dress demands to be worn in snow. We barely got any snow at our old place, so we HAD to move. The dress made us! We are not mad about it. ;-)

  5. Gorgeous scenery and that dress really is perfect for the setting!

    I wonder if Bear has been lonely without all the other dogs for company, or if he's been like, "Ah, finally. A little Bear time." Glad the dogs are settling into the new place well. I was wondering how they've done with the move.

    1. They still haven't quite gotten where the property line is, and frequently run under the fence to the neighbours. We are starting to dog-proof the fence next week, and then I will rest much easier! But apart from that, they have adjusted really well.
      Bear was glad to have some much-needed alone-time, but now he's happy to have re-joined the rest of his pack. He is an introvert like me, and really enjoyed his Bear-time!

    1. I'm sending you snow vibes! It's snowing here again as we speak, and I'm sitting by the window with my cup of hot coffee cradled in my hands, soaking it all in. So peaceful.

    1. You got snow, woo-hoo! Snow in December is awesome, it's so Christmas-sy. Maybe it will even stick around for Christmas for you?! I hope so.

    1. Thank you Mary! I mentioned it before, the dress really needs snow. It wanted snow, so we went where the snow is. The dress is happy, I'm happy, and Richard is happy (he appreciatesaid the shortness of it, he's such a man), so it's a triple win! 😉
