For Sandra Conner’s ‘Thursday’s Windows’, I took a few pics from inside the house, after our slow drive home from the mall, yesterday afternoon. The houses across the road looked so pretty in the snow.
The play house in the back yard, the scene of so much fun in the summer months, must feel very abandoned in the winter.
The garden furniture gets no “bums on seats” either. 🙂
The next door neighbour’s house looked very cosy through the playroom window.
There was a bit of work to be done on the driveway, after dinner.
Lastly, here is another couple of store windows which we saw in New York on Christmas Eve.

Looks idyllic 🙂
Thanks, Paula,. 🙂
These photos are amazing Sylvia!!
Love how the snow changes completely the atmosphere of what I was used to see in your blog 🙂
Yes, these are quite different pics from my usual ones. 🙂 Thanks so much for your comment, Pablo. 🙂
I like the garden furniture in the snow. We have lots of snow on the ground with more on the way today.
Thanks, Karen. It’s also snowing here again, but more than last time. 🙂
Oooooooh I love the park bench with the small tree and the book store window shots. Very cool. Here in Southern California no snow … yesterday sunshine about 60 degrees … today wet.
Thanks, TG. We have a lot more snow today, and the temperature is 33F.
You are so lucky to have so much snow 🙂
It’s snowing again, and looking very pretty. 🙂
Those shop windows are stunning
I thought so too. 🙂
Thanks so much, Swalia. 🙂
There really is something about windows…you just love them – and looking out from them! You caught winter blue accurately and cold…!
Thanks for looking through my windows, Ann Christine. 🙂
Great photos, the snow really does look fantastic, like another world to me. 😀
Thanks so much, magsx2. 🙂
These are wonderful picture windows of the world that you’ve captured. I really like how you caught the blue hour, it creates such a wonderful mood in the photos.
Thanks so much, Emily. I’m so happy that you enjoyed them, 🙂
Oof. looks cold. (how was that for profound?) 🙂
Impressive, Phil. 😀
These shots are perfect… Boy I really don’t like winter… I need a warm weather vaca! I keep dreaming I’m visiting your blog… what’s up? 😆
Thanks so much, Elizabeth. I also need to get back to the warmer weather soon.:)
You capture the essence of winter AD! All stark and beautiful!
Thanks, Madhu. The only thing not beautiful, was the temperature. 🙂
I love the last image especially……I’d love to own a shop and have a window just like this 🙂
Thanks, Suzanne. It is indeed a beautiful window. 🙂
Beautiful windows. It’s like looking through a Winter wonderland. The lights inside the other parson’s home does look cozy and warm. Merry Christmas!
Thanks so much, Island Traveler. Best wishes for a great New Year to you and your family. 🙂
Your neighborhood is beautiful!!!! It looks like that here today. It’s a bit depressing!
Thanks, Jasmine. Yes, it is a very nice neighbourhood. 🙂
Those windows most certainly look cold! Keep warm ad.
I’m doing my best, Hopestar. I have my boots, scarves, gloves and coats, but no nose-warmer. 😆 Hugs.
You could get yourself a balaclava, but don’t go to the bank with it on 😉
Hehehe. I could do with robbing a bank after Christmas expenditure. 😀
Caught up at last with all your travels and the excitement of Christmas – particularly Santa and the snow! How lovely for you to be all together with a house full of children! Seems you’re having a perfect Christmas – though come to think of it, is that -3F or -3C? 🙂
Yes, -3 Centigrade. It is lovely to be all together, but the cold is something I’m not used to. At least the house if nice and warm, but there’s talk of going into the city this evening. Brrrr!! 😯
If only we could even out the temperatures, then we wouldn’t melt and you wouldn’t freeze 😉
Wouldn’t that be great? 😀
Wow, the last few posts are enough to make my teeth chatter, AD. From here, all nice and warm, it is hard to imagine how cold it must be! Love your pics.
Thanks, adee. I’m looking out of the window at the early morning grey sky. 🙂
A sense of stillness and ‘everything on hold ‘ with your Snow pictures AD …
Love the shop displays with the Papercut work 🙂
Glad you enjoyed, Poppy. 🙂
Can’t imagine this. If I will be there, I will be turned into a frozen meat!
Hahaha. That wouldn’t be good at all. 😀
All so pretty AD 🙂
It did look very pretty, Tandy. The snow didn’t last long though. 🙂
I love that window with the large paper snowflakes!! Thanks for letting me experience some snow vicariously though your pictures! 🙂
You’re welcome, Cathy. Would you like a bit of cold too? 😀
I actually would love some cold and am even dreaming of going to Prague if we get a semester break just to experience some! 🙂
I hope you do. I’d love to see pics from Prague in winter. 🙂
Ohhhhhhhhh….I want to be there!
The novelty soon wears off after being outside in the cold wind for a couple of minutes. 🙂
Snow only missing here… It’s too cold here!!! 🙂 Beautiful shots!!
Thanks, RV. Glad you enjoyed my bit of snow. 🙂
As long as I’m warm and cozy, I’m just fine looking out the window. Your 4th photo looks like a Currier and Ives and everything looks peaceful and still. Safe travels to you as you come back to FL which is chilly at the moment.
I had to google “Currier & Ives.” Thank you. I’m flattered. 🙂 We return to Florida only next week, so it has time to warm up a bit.
Lovely from the inside looking out! Are you snowbound now?
No we aren’t. The snow stopped and then it rained. 🙂
You have a way of creating a paradise in the middle of winter! Lovely photos – a reminder that you can find warmth in any kind of weather.
What a lovely comment, Clanmother. 🙂 We can make our own paradise, whatever the weather and the circumstances. Hugs.
Somebody has said that snow is like friendship .. it softens everything it falls on.
Great winter shots – pretty, cold and hearty.
Thanks for your visit, Viveka. I like that saying. 🙂
I do miss snow, always so nice looking out on it from a warm cosy house. That snow blower your son has is a pretty neat piece of kit Sylvia. Smashing post as always. Keep warm! 🙂
Thanks so much, Adrian. I’m keeping warm, but we do have to go our now and again. 🙂
Been a lovely sunny day here in the hollow, hard to imagine how cold it must be there.
You don’t want to know. 🙂
Cold weather, warm family 😉
Lovely pics AD!
That’s right………..much better than the other way around. 😀
Somehow I am not missing the cold we had a year ago in Switzerland.
I would imagine not, newsy. 🙂
The snow machine is a better idea than an ordinary ol’ shovel!
I wish I could actually feel that cold instead of just seeing it.
Another hot and humid day here, but a little quieter with some of the holiday makers gone.
Yes, a snow blower is an essential piece of equipment if you live here. 🙂 Glad the Vallies are starting to leave. You’ll be able to get your parking space at the mall again. 🙂
The playhouse looks so cute in the snow and I LOVE the view. Gorgeous area.
Thanks, Angelia. It is a lovely area here. 🙂
Certainly looks very cold outside AD ;(
That’s for sure, Chris. 🙂
Reblogged this on My story to you...
Thanks so much, Andy. 🙂
No thank YOU 😀
There’s something i always loved about these kinds of store windows, A cozy and friendly feeling vs department stores. 🙂
These were big stores in the middle of NYC, and they did a really good job. 🙂
Very! they are so inviting 😀
