white winter hymnal

(illustrations from children's books the snowy day and deer in the snow)
 
max and i have been aching for a bit of snow around here...something to stick to the grass and buoy plastic sleds. in the meantime though, we're enjoying cold walks outside with plans to strewn the house with paper snowflakes...keeping woolens close...and reading dreamy books of whitest white winters. we're wintery ohio folk through and through.

have a lovely lovely weekend, friends! 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------

p.s. i'm so glad you guys like the new layout! it still needs tweaked here and there, but it feels so good to start the year off with something new and fresh. i've also decided to bite the bullet already and start accepting sponsors! it's something i've been meaning to do for years but have been too afraid. i'm so excited to start working with other artists and small businesses...knowing that taking this step will help justify the time i spend here...and insure that i will be able to continue to in the coming years! thank you all much and much for making that possible!

if you're interested in partnering up visit my sponsor page here...

xoxo

  1. Katie, yes! Your new look is so pretty. Clean and fresh! I can't believe that I just this winter bought The Snowy Day. It should have been in my little library a few years ago : ) We'll wish some snow your way!

  2. Hi! Huge fan of your blog - it's one of my favorites :)

    I don't know if this is a part of your tweaks to be made but I wanted to let you know (in case you hadn't already) that the links to your favorite blogs don't all work. All except Kinfolk's & Shutterbean... I think the other's are missing a colon after the "http"

  8. Hi Katie!! Beautiful layout, so simple and clean and... You!
    Will you be accepting sponsors from other lifestyle bloggers too or are you mainly just looking to partner up with businesses and artists?
    Have a beautiful day, click your heels three times, hold your breath and make a wish upon a star... And perhaps the snow will come! ^.~

  15. I love this. We don't have snow. Barely even cold. It was 60 degrees here over weekend and we delighted in bundling up...in light fleece jackets that we took off an hour later when the sun came all the way up.
