Snow, snow go away, only come back Christmas day {new blog post}

The first flutters of snowflakes are always enchanting, it sets off the feeling of Christmas approaching, and time to buy presents, and a sledge. I don't think I've ever seen so many kids with sledges until this Winter. I think we have all been in the wrong business - lets all design funky wellies, and jazzy sledges.

I took this photo of Park View this evening, the ice maybe lurking, but it's lovely to see everyone's Christmas windows and lights. Lillian Bateman's traditional window is like you have just stepped into Lapland, or taken a time travel back to the day's of Dickens's with a pitch of chicness. Girls you have to check out the goodies at No Rock and Roll, loving Trina's decorations, pretty wrapped presents, tree, lights and gorgeous lingerie to boot! Just had to show this beautiful sunset photo that Trina took at Monkseaton, Langley field. I can never resist a sunset photo.

Carrying on the sunset theme, this beautiful photo was taken by Alicia Rose, she create's the most wonderful embroidered illustrations - visit Alicia's twitter 

This photo is from the Francesca - who did a wonderful guest post for us about her collection of 80's inspired goodies. If you love stationery, retro toy's and have a passion for collecting be sure to check out Francesca's post. With this photo I could imagine it was taken in Edward Scissorhands garden, a blanket of pure snow, just a hint of what is lying beneath. Love that movie, and it's on this Christmas :)
Thank's to Clare for this photo - the snow reminds me of icing on a slice of Christmas cake - what do you think? 
This has to have been the biggest Icicle's I've seen so far this winter, suspended from a drainpipe. Can you beat this icicle photo?
On the way home, a curl of snow which had slid partially down on a roof, lurked in frozen motion. 
This guy I photographed one morning, we get a host of birds, normally large birds swooping down for the food we save, their annual birdie banquet. Selecting his breakfast, he polished it off on this crossing light. I would love to see a robin this winter to.
Well It's nearly time fro the last episode of step back in time - UK high street through the decades, have thoroughly enjoyed watching this programme. Have you been watching to? which was your favourite decade/episode?
Off to get a mince pie to ;)
Thank you to the gals for your image contributions, be sure to follow them on twitter.
