Winter Solstice Window

Welcome!  I want to invite you to my favorite window to the world.
It's where I watch the sunset every winter evening.  And on this
winter solstice evening, this is my favorite spot in our home.
I love seeing my sweet neighbor's creamy yellow painted home
It always makes me smile!

I  have a hanging basket of violet pansies in the window as
well as a pot of pansies on the picnic table on the deck.  The
pansies in the big black clay pot by the deck chairs always cheer
me up in winter.  I love the view out my kitchen window!

This kitchen window means a lot to me.  I really do appreciate it.
For many years before I moved  to my blue cottage, I lived 
in my "little" green cottage.  Our kitchen window  looked out
across the driveway and a wall of the brick house next door.  
So I never saw the sun rise or set.  I just saw the red bricks and
white mortar on the brick wall.  Just thinking of that brick wall
makes me appreciate our window now more.

Thank you for visiting today!    Happy Winter Solstice!
And Merry Christmas to you and your family!


  1. With a view like that, makes cleaning the sink more pleasant. Merry Christmas and keep an eye for Santa.

  2. A very lovely view!

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Happy Winter Solstice to you too and A Very Merry Christmas. I have a window like that too where I can look, so peaceful.

  4. I love pansies--we had a heavy wind here last night and it completely flipped my big pot!
