Winter wonder

Greetings to all ~ and happy day after Thanksgiving ")
Here's a quick picture post with a wee bit of art from me and much more from Mother Nature- enjoy!

 Remember last month's Dia de los muertos pumpkin
             this is it~upcycled~with a facelift.

The morning sunrise was dancing on the tree tops with the dark sky and threat of more snow in the distance.

This is the White Birch seen from my studio window... the first picture is just last week...the one on the right is this morning.

Chum is hung over this morning from too much turkey and way too much fun! 
The grandkiddos came over and the three of them played like crazy!
Chum secretly thinks he is one of the kids! teeheehee

                                    Refill the suet,please!! 
     The Hairy Woodpecker still pecks at every last morsel!
                       Cool designs carved out from snow and ice

                        Sun play on the trees over the pond.

Early this morning on the pond as seen from our bedroom window
 One of our regulars, a Mourning Dove perched, waiting patiently for his turn at the feeder.

Thank you for joining me and I do hope you enjoyed some winter wonder from my neck of the woods. 

I also want to thank you all for your visits as well as your wonderful words and comments. I am very grateful for this and for all of you!  xo

Oh I enjoy your photos so much. The first one with the sunset color in the tree tops is "nature's mixed media" at its finest. That was magical. You got more snow than we did. Your property is a scene from a Christmas greeting card.
I'm still laughing from our phone call. Such fun. I needed to belly laugh like that!

Fabulous decorative pumpkin - it's really cool! And the wintry photographs are great - the tree silhouettes catching the sun are simply beautiful.

Hi Jackie, my dear arty friend, thanks for the visit. I love your pumpkin but it can't beat the beauty of nature! What a fantastic view. We are still in the middle of autumn at the moment and it's still quite mild here. We may have snow or we may not Lol! That's the English weather for you.
Have a great weekend and happy crafting, Angela xxx
