The last few days I've been living in a winter wonderland

Snow and ice.
Freezing cold.
Hats and gloves and scarves and red noses.
Taking photos from inside the frozen car.
We had to wait a while for it to thaw.

Candles and electric heaters.
Hot water bottles.
Miracle of 34th Street.

Parcels. Presents. Sellotape. Stamps.
Christmassy google.
Well wishes from strangers.

Counting down...
to seeing family, to hugs and laughter
to flying to Holland!!

I think Christmas is almost here!!
Can you feel it?


  1. I certainly can from looking at those photos mate. Those last few were lovely and warm.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours Saskia.

    Hope you have a good one!

  2. I definitely can and I am ready! I hope you have a fantastic Christmas as well love :) x

  3. I think I can feel Christmas coming after seeing your photos. It has been tough to feel Christmasy in Texas - we had a warm front and the high is about 70 today.

    Your snow and ice helped me feel chilly on the inside at least!

  4. Such beautiful photos! I hope you have a lovely Christmas. I can't believe it's almost here. I'm opening presents with my sis and her family tonight, before I head up to Vermont to visit my parents, and I CAN'T WAIT!! Have a great time in Holland!

  5. Lovely photos!! Hasn't it been gorgeous and wintry these last few days...says a girl who can walk to work :P Hope the weather eases off for you to have a safe and uninterrupted trip to Holland! Merry Christmas! xxx

  6. The snow is lovely! It is magical and tranquil. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  7. So Christmassy! I hope that you and Mr. B have a wonderful Christmas, and that you enjoy your time in Holland!!!

  8. I wanna be at your place :)

    I love the close up of the snow. Fantastic.

    Mele Kalikimaka my friend. I dropped something in the mail today...but knowing my luck you'll get it next year :)


  9. i can feel it!! can't wait to get to utah to be with my family!
    happy holidays!

  10. Love the expression on that deer! Brill... and yes I can indeed feel that Xmas is on the way!

  11. Ah yes, I can feel it! I'm sort of wishing for a winter wonderland, but not in Texas. I'll be leaving for Santa Fe, New Mexico on Sunday and I would love for it to snow while we're there. I have to board my Doberman while I'm gone and he'll be in an outside run at the Kennel, so I want it to stay as warm as possible in Texas for him. (He's an inside dog so I'm worried for him.) I must say your trip to Holland sounds so exciting! I love how you get to travel! Can't wait to live vicariously through your pictures!

    Happy Holidays, Saskia!

  12. What great pictures, as always!

    Merry Christmas!

  13. oh that reindeer is so cute....i hope you have a wonderful holiday!

  14. yep, it's winter wonderland here too, except when I need to go to work... traffic jam, delayed public transports... :S


  15. It's hard to feel super Christmas-y in Arizona with our sunny and 70 degree weather, but your pics sure do the trick! Although, we do have storm rolling through that should bring colder temps and maybe some rain (gasp!). Merry Christmas, friend! xoxo

  16. It snow in italy too... Freezing, cold, scarves, gloves hats... A big mess... Love the snow . It make me feel to live in wonderland... Love the snow 'cause it covers everything and everythings looks beautiful!
