Winter has Arrived!

Thought I would share a couple of my favorite images of Winter while we were on the subject. Alphonse Mucha had such a wonderful way of portraying the season. His Ice Princesses are my favorites. He really understood the beauty of a water crystal. I hope everyone is staying warm in my part of the world. If you are in one of those Nations where it is summer - this is in your future.

My very favorite Ice Princess.

Her name is Winter.

Take some time to enjoy a little Hot Chocolate. This is the best part of trudging around in bad weather. Don't forget the marshmellows.

Mucha's women are sooooo elegant and graceful. This is a man who understood and loved women. Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth. Hope you're staying warm and cozy today! Winter hugs, Terri xoxo
