Though The Frost Was Cruel


Taking pictures in blizzard-like conditions is ill-advised...actually doing anything other than lazying about indoors while wrapped in blankets is not recommended. Our poor little dogs are also suffering; the snow is too fluffy to hold their weight and they're too small to keep their heads above the drifts! To whomever requested a white Christmas, I blame this on you. I didn't add a special "snow effect" to these pictures; this is literally how they came out with the camera trying to figure out whether to focus on individual flakes or blur the snow and occasionally focus on me. The snow came down all day and into the night, until the drifts reached past my knees.

  1. Cute outfit--I'm glad you braved the elements. Your umbrella is just too cute! I have a plain, clear bubble umbrella, but I may also need one like yours!

  2. in france, people are always using umbrellas to brave the snow.
    at first i thought it was weird, now i think it might be logical.
    yours is pretty, in any case/

  8. It was my fault, I kept on wishing for a white christmas. Now I'm trapped indoors thanks to the snow. Guess I wished too hard. Loving the fishes and butterflies in the snow though. :)

    hope you're staying warm!

  9. oh no! it's that dreaded snow you were talking about!! I was loving your snowless pictures, they were making me think I wasn't trapped in a snowy abyss for a few minutes. You look slightly annoyed at it! hehe

  20. It's been snowing like crazy in Belgium too, although it seems to have calmed down since christmas, finaly! I keep slipping and falling on the ice, I've kind of had it with the snow by now!
    So brave of you to go out in this weather, but I like the outcome! It's a beautiful dress you're wearing.

  25. that is gorgeous i love the 1st picture and how it looks sort of blurry. its so creative.

  26. It's kind of funny how you're mixing so many animals together in this outfit: butterflies, goldfish, and the bird on your brooch. I wear similarly seasonally inappropriate outfits all the time. I've never heard of using an umbrella in the snow, but then again I'm from the Pacific Northwest, where you're looked at with derision if you use an umbrella in the rain.

  29. Have you ever read the Hunger Games? If so I would love to see your interpretation of the mockingjay.

    And yeah, you've now made me feel obliged to go outside, if even for a minute. Since it's almost below cero I am not grateful ... yet.

  33. I cant believe it is like this, it looks so pretty but must have been so cold. Your poor dogs, keep them in by the heater.
    Your dress is really pretty too.

  34. That's so sad that your dogs are having trouble in the snow.
    I'm really enjoying the natural "snow effect" that the weather created for you.
    However, I must say I"m impressed you actually ventured out at all in this weather.
    You're very dedicated!
