Our new Frog Prince Valentine decorations join the others on our front porch shelf..Stay tuned over the next month or so for more Valentine happenings.

Top:  Interesting snow accumulation on a wire fence that surrounds our neighbor's garden.  Due to the wind velocity, the snow looks more like cotton stuffed into all crevices of the wire fence than snow.  Middle: The lattice fence in front of our A/C in back of our house is topped with 13+ inches of snow.. Bottom: Our next door neighbor, looking south down our street. What a winter wonderland....Gorgeous!

Pretty snow fell in our little Village on Jan. 15, 2012 and now again on the 16th. We got our Christmas decorations put away for another year and now we are decorating for Valentine's Day.

Sure wish the BRIGHT yellow would show up better on these pictures,  but we decided we could NOT live with this circus color it's almost NEON.  So this is our new color which is more creamy, yummy yellow and will look great with the Antique White of the cupboards and moldings. These colors are not as they appear and this new yellow is really a nice light and soothing color.  If we lived in New Mexico, AZ or places as these, the bright yellow would be a good one but in our 1923 house it's not the right choice.  Will keep you posted.
