Hattie's playhouse, made by her Papa, looks lonely doesn't
it? Last year in February we had several very warm days
and we got in there and did our Spring Cleaning early.

Oh, those are beautiful photos, especially the sunrise on the snow! I absolutely love that one!

Your husband built that playhouse? He is truly talented! That is darling!
(My husband built more of low to the ground treehouse in our yard, but it's the rustic version!)

Have a wonderful week!
