The Magic of First Snowfall.

I know many of you have already had a first snowfall of the season and rather forget it and certainly you don't look forward to the next one. But for me, there is something magical about snowfall, especially the first one of the season. But, regardless if it's the first one or not, I love the feeling that the snow brings; a sense of quietness and a peacefulness;a cleanness that reaches down to the soul. A white blanket of snow that covers the landscape softly whispers "slow down and enjoy this moment". Oh my, now I am pining for some snow!

This breadboard was painted with a scene that depicts the magic of the first snowfall. It's a Terrye French design but I have added my own touches so it would fit on this board. I added a burlap tie, snowflake jingle bell and finished it with a prim tag. Click on the photo for a closer view. You know I love bread boards and I love snowmen, what a great combination. When you receive your first snowfall or second snowfall of the season, I hope it is magical! Slow down and enjoy the quiet moment that it brings.

Til next time....

Very, very pretty Willa, as all of your painting is. We just got a light dusting of snow during the night. Nothing like our nor'easter Oct. 29th.
It is so peaceful when it's softly falling down.
Warm Wishes,
Susan

Great snowman breadboard, Willa. I love the snowmen with their Christmas tree. Nicely done. Snow falling is one of my favorite things to see but I hate having to go out in it.

Your breadboard is wonderful! Love it! We have just had our first snow(s) this week. We were supposed to get a dusting on Tuesday but ended up with over an inch, and another inch or so overnight last night. Everything looks so pretty and fresh!

You've captured the softness and magic beautifully Willa - truly one of your finest pieces I think! I do love the hush of a snowfall - I sleep the soundest and most peacefully then - but I worry so about me and others driving in it....Happy, happy, Friday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
