Christmas at Kim’s

My friend, Kim, lives in the country in a cozy, and I mean really cozy, cabin-home. The day I went to snap pictures of her Christmas decorations, it was snowing big flakes. It was a real life Christmas card.

Happy Holidays

             When I visit here, I never want to leave.  You’ll see why..

Plenty of firewood is on hand for the long Minnesota winter.

The kitchen is a mix of old and new. Big windows look out to the winter wonderland.

Kim and Mike are creative in a number of ways. Both are fine musicians, involved in several bands. They did all the house remodeling work themselves. And here’s a mug Kim made.

Stepping back outside, treasures and surprises are everywhere.
