Winter White Christmas

It is not unusual …for it to snow here in Illinois, but it has been a couple of years since we’ve had that…*Winter White Christmas*.

Just a short walk around my yard with my camera, on Christmas Day…shows you just how beautiful a *Winter White Christmas* is.

until next time…a Merry Christmas to all…

The Osage Inn

My friends and I  took a journey back in time  at The Osage Inn,last Monday. Osage Inn is a lovely restored, Civil War era log house. It is furnished in Antiques(with a capitol A), with just the right amount of modern amenities, a peaceful retreat…We had the log cabin completely to ourselves,on our over~nite stay.

I’m posting pictures that I hope will show you the country retreat in all it’s Glory.

Hope you enjoyed our stay as much as we did…until next time…

We are home safe,not too sure how sound we are…Hubby did a terrific job of driving us home Sunday…our day started out around 4:30am and ended by pulling into the drive about 11:35pm…worn~out and tired, but home safe…besides my sister falling out backwards of her son’s pick~up truck and breaking at least 5 ribs…I felt driven to get home…a phone call Monday morning revealed… why. My aunt had passed on Sunday evening…so a funeral today, and now,please,maybe back to a somewhat normal life???? Haven’t had a chance to set~up pics of my treasures,I found on my trip to Texas…but I will slip in a pic of our home away from home…and maybe tomorrow will lend it’s self in favor of TREASURES….
