Winter Mug Rug Swap Mosaic

Winter Mug Rug Swap Mosaic
Hi hi! When I think winter, I don't really think holidays or anything like that. I think snow. I love snow. But, I love being warm too, so I mostly love looking at snow. One of my fondest memories from my childhood was when my mom, my sister and I lived in the Sierra Nevadas and my mom worked for Caltrans driving snow plows in the winter. One night, she bundled us out of bed and into our winter coats and boots, gave us warm mugs of cocoa and sat us in the second story window of our duplex to watch her shovel a path across the street to our babysitter's house. Growing up and still to this day, I love the quiet, stillness of snow falling and the look of it on the trees and the ground. The way it makes even the cars and houses look soft is neat. We get wet snow here and people freak out about it, which makes me sad because snow could be fun for the short amount of time we have it here. Just to be able to go out and appreciate the stillness and quiet for a while - I love it! Thanks for checking out my mosaic and for swapping with us!!!

A beautiful mosaic and I agree with the quiet piece, snow fall when it is dark it is extra ordinary, but I have winter 5 months/ year and when we get closer to april I really long for spring and warm sunshine. It is fantastic to have 4 seasons!
I look forward to this mug rug swap!

How beautiful your mosaic is. I don't see snow that often, but when you described the quiet, stillness of the snow falling I could just feel it.

I love snow too, which is a good thing since I live in the northwoods of WI (about an hour south of the Canadian border). We have winter 5 - 6 months out of the year, so we get PLENTY of those snow covered mornings! :) I love your pictures!!

Lovely pictures and story. I love to look at the snow but really have strong dislike for the cold! The cold really doesn't agree with my body at all but love to be able to act and feel like a child in the snow for about 10 minutes.
