The snow has been falling since last night. A steady snow with big fat flakes that’s covered everything in sight. We’ve decided not to plow or dig ourselves out for a while and instead be snowed in by the fire reading, napping and doing a little bit of this and that. It’s truly as pretty as a picture outside.
And for the first time, I decorated our porches with old skates, a wooden sleds, pine, little white lights and big ornaments.
In the interim, I’m in a bit of a cleaning and purging mode to ready for the big change of the calendar. All that making and wrapping last week, left my studio looking like a creative explosion went off. And I guess that’s exactly what you would call it.
So much for a list to Santa [wink].
Friday was filled with seafood by the water, a mansion tour and some time at the beach. The Breakers reminded me a bit of Downton Abbey from the outside with it’s stark looking angles. Arte said at one point, ‘I can’t imagine living here.’ I on the other hand, have no problem imagining that.
The next morning we woke, to big fat flakes falling gently from above and covering the quiet city of Providence making it feel a bit like a snow globe. There were so many things I enjoyed about Providence, from it’s astute looking architecture, to museums, to quirky artistic pieces scattered here and there.
It truly is a well-rounded city, at least in my eyes. And the falling flakes made it that much more charming.
One of my favorite shops was, Simple Pleasures, a simple English looking cottage tucked out of the way, but well worth the extra few minutes it takes to get to.
