Quiet Days of December




We're waiting every day for snow to cover this village in white...no luck yet. It's a brown world for now, though sometimes there is blue mist or frost.

If you look closely at the middle picture, you will see the tip of the huge Christmas tree which is put up every December in the town square, where there is also a Christmas market and an ice skating rink. Yesterday I bought candied almonds, turkish delight, and roasted chestnuts in a little paper cone. It's such a wonderful time of year.

Happy December!

  6. Hi Dawn:),

    Your village always looks so lovely. And the large Christmas tree and skating rink- soooo perfect!!! I'm sure that Raffi is going to have such a wonderful & magical first holiday season. I know you'll show him all that there is to love about this time of year, including your beautiful village:). I can't wait to see some photos of it all covered in white. And more photos of your cute little peanut too:). xox, Blair

  11. I just found your blog via La Porte Rouge and without knowing you live in Autria, the first and then the second picture made me think these must have been taken in Europe! Then I read about where you live and spent time looking at all your past posts. I too spent my childhood in CA and now live in Switzerland.

    How small the world is...but by now, nothing really surprises me when it comes to the blog world. I have met so many kindred spirits and am always on the look out for more. :)

    Hope you'll stay in touch!
