What Winter Looks Like...

(Welcome to anyone arriving here from Blue Zebra Photography!)

(Oh!  And this is post # 500 on Ye Olde Blogge.  Wow!)

I mentioned earlier that I'm participating in two different photography projects this year with other members of the Bloom Forum.   The second project I'm participating in are monthly photos that relate to a certain theme or word.

For January, the theme is "Winter."

We've had an odd winter so far here in Massachusetts.  Hardly any snow at all and over the weekend it was actually in the 50's which is pretty unusual.  We did have a brief snowstorm last week though and while LP and Eliza were cozied up on the couch together I wandered around and took a few photos of the scene.  I love how cozy it is in our house when it's snowy out and wanted to capture some images that conveyed that...

From here you can head over to Kelly Janssen's Photography Blog to see what her winter looks like.  She's in Anna Maria Island,Florida so I bet it's pretty different from New England!


  1. Beautiful photos from the inside out. I think I might have done the same from your warm and cozy place. It makes me remember living in the north - how much I loved looking out at the snow when I didn't have to go out in it! Lovely!

  2. Beautiful!!! Love the "from the inside out" photo!!!

  3. Oooh, so pretty - I feel like I could be sitting inside with you enjoying a nice cup of coffee!

  4. lovely photos. love the second window image. thanks for sharing!

  5. Yes, really wonderful! Love the first image out the window to the playground. You nailed winter for sure.

  6. I really like the fact that you shot some of these from the warmth of your home. I think it really adds to the wintery feel.

  7. Your photos make me jealous of your winter wonderland! Such lovely photography on here :)

  8. You did a wonderful job of capturing how the essence of winter from the inside of your cozy home. Beautiful images and a winter wonderland you have in your own backyard!

  9. I love them all, but most especially the second. Your header is adorable too. Very glad to be in this group with you!

  10. i had no idea we are in the same state! it was so fascinating to see your pictures - the inside out. they feel sheltered, warm, cozy, nestled and appreciative of being inside looking out.

  11. Love these, creative and gorgeous images!

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…


I’m finding myself a bit scattered about what I want to say on Mother’s Day this year.  While I love the idea of a day that’s meant for celebrating mothers who are so rarely thanked for all they do, I find it to be a rather bittersweet holiday.  Much like Valentine’s Day can be hard for people who long to be in a relationship with someone, Mother’s Day can be very hard for those who want so badly to be mothers.  And while I’ve been fortunate enough to be the recipient of Mother's Day cards, flowers, hugs and kisses for five years now, my heart still aches for everyone hoping and praying to celebrate it themselves one day- those waiting to receive smudgy cards with little handprints and cheesy poems, to be served breakfast in bed by excited little ones, to be handed a beautiful yellow flower (aka dandelion) because it’s a special day for Mama.  And so I think that Mother’s Day should be a day to celebrate all sorts of “mothers.”  Mothers of young children, mothers of grown children…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.

Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…
