IF- "Frozen"

I don't even want to think about "Frozen". Right now the leaves are golden, the air is warm and the sun is glorious- but there is a huge pile of firewood in the backyard and the snow is coming!! Hopefully not to the extent where the Polar Bears wander.

From " Keeping Hearth and Home, in Old Colorado" a little book I found in Durango yesterday- featuring little tips for the "proper" lady of the 1800's-

""... the sleeping room should be so cold that ice forms in the pitcher during the night, the morning bath will be taken without a shudder and the healthy glow that follows will be more than a reward for the resolution, time and effort it cost" brrrrrrrrr!!!


  1. This is adorable Julia. Right now it is snowing outside. I has been doing this all day. It also snowed on Friday and we seem to be in a bit of a strangely weird weather pattern. Your polar bear makes cold weather look so charming!
