Beautiful winter morning photo, Shelley... I wish we'd get some pretty snow like that. Maybe---one of these days.
Hugs,

Hey Shelley - I wanted to let you know that everyone LOVED the mugs I gave them for Christmas (the ones I bought from you) but... they all said that you should have signed the picture or it should have had your name on it somewhere. Maybe you should think about this.

I just love the beauty of winter. When you get a chance check out the feathered tree pictures on my blog. We had a hoarfrost, which is ice crystals that form on the trees. Absolutely breathtaking!

Winter is a pretty season, I'll give it that much. If only it were 2 months long instead of 6... Remember, I'm from the UP.
