After experiencing a surprising white
Christmas - it is very cold in Missouri!
And the forecast for the next
 few weeks
is the same thing.

I think it looks like my lithograph:

I almost forgot to get this out for Christmas and so glad I finally
 remembered as  I love it dearly.  It 
is an 1897 hand colored lithograph.


  1. What a beautiful New Year’s Eve (almost) post! Your lithograph is lovely, but I am sorry that your world is matching it. It certainly is frigid.

  2. Oh, your lithograph is simply beautiful! And I love the sparkly white putz house church too. Lovely decorating. It's colder than usual here as well, and more snow than usual for December.

  3. Hello Bernideen,

    Just stopping by to wish you a beautiful and blessed 2018.


  4. Hi Bernideen! We are super cold here in Kansas as well. I'm Missouri born and all my fondest childhood memories are of the Ozark hills in central Missouri where my grandparents had their farm. I can't even express how much I love your beautiful lithograph! So glad you remembered to get it out this year. Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year!
    You have beautiful lithograph. :)

  6. Beautiful lithograph. A very Happy New Year to you and yours, Bernideen. Stay warm and cozy.

  7. We're also under an extreme cold alert here. It's so cold that numerous places have cancelled the outdoor events for New Year's Eve. Happy New Year, Bernideen!

  8. Love the lithograph, so dreamy and perfect! Happy "almost" New Years to you!

  9. You've made such a lovely home in Missouri. Your photos pull me to visit your state more when I'm passing through to my daughter farther north. Looking forward to visiting with you in the coming year...I have a feeling it's going to be a great one!

  10. Oh how pretty Bernideen, love all the clocks showing times gone by
    So happy to be with you yesterday for The Gathering of Friends

    Happy New Year dear lady and thanks for being a friend

  11. Very sweet post, Bernideen, and thank you for all the wishes and lovely images from the last year. You are a treasure! Sandi
