Snowday Pretty

I find it shocking that right before a storm hits grocery stores run out of eggs, milk, bread, but always have plenty of cocoa and marshmallows left. What is everyone thinking?

Have a cozy weekend. xoAM
(ps. I loved reading about everyone else's musical rooms. good, good memories to make and remember.)

  1. Seriously. Forget the eggs, get the marshmallows! We play musical furniture in our family, would that count?

  3. What are those purple berries? - I've been wondering for months now.

    Yes, snow day = hot chocolate

  4. That is rather laughable, isn't it. Everyone's priorities are way out of order.

    I'm swooning over that hat and scarf? Did you make them both?

  5. mmmm now I want marshmallows! Yummy!

  6. How can it be snowing there, when up here in Olympic land (Vancouver)we have nothing but green grass, rain and +10 degrees Celsius forecast for the weekend??!!

  7. Dear Anna Maria,
    I'm glad having found your blog. It is very beautiful. In Germany we have the same weather so we don't know if we would be able to go to my grandfather's birthday on sunday because driving one hour in snowstorm wouldn't be funny :-)
    But unfortunataly I think we have only three marshmallows left :-(
    I hope to see a lot more of your beautiful pictures in the future!

  8. You have such beautiful photos! The berries with snow are lovely, and despite it being 30-something degrees celsius here, I now feel like a hot chocolate!

  9. Hello Anna!

    Your lovely pictures are almost as good as hot chocolate, in my opinion. :) It's nice and cold here too.

    Oh, and in the Musical Rooms post, where did Juliana find those awesome tights? They are too cute! I've always shared a room with some/all of my sisters. Our late night talks are so fun.

    xoxo, Achaia

  10. What gorgeous photos!!

  11. Hat and scarf--adorable!

  12. Love that scarf and hat, you can never have too many I think--or cocoa and marshmallows either for that matter!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Good question! Except I like me some hot french toast on a snowy day to go with my cocoa. We just had an unexpected snowfall last week and my poor husband couldn't get home from work. They closed the highway so he had to wait it out until 10:30 pm and couldn't play with us in the snow. Hope you all have a great snowy weekend!

  14. I love your blog. You pictures are beautiful.On my way to the kitchen to make a cup of hot chocolate...

    ReplyDelete
  15. You're right about the cocoa. Yum!
    Love the scarf and hat. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  16. The juxtaposition of the top two photos is perfect.
    A snow day? Don't you live in Tennessee or someplace equally Southern?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Seems as though even hot cocoa won't keep us very warm here. Hope you don't have the awful frigid temps to go with the snow.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, you are so right. What good is all that bread and milk, when hot chocolate is what you need.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am a hot chocoholic! We got one of those single-serve coffee makers that also makes hot cocoa for Christmas and I'm in big trouble now. A few nights ago saw a single mug containing hot cocoa, marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate chips AND sprinkles!

    I've lived in New England almost my entire life. Ever since the blizzard of 1978, there is a "French toast" alert when snow is forecasted...bread, milk, and eggs! The stores sell out in a matter of minutes! Thank goodness for homemade hot chocolate and marshmallows or whipped cream...forever delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  21. The snow picture is breath-taking, such a rich berry color....hmmm, is that a flowering shrub?!!
    Then, followed the pretty scarf and hat! Wow...scrumptious colors!
    Makes me want to sit down and crochet!
    Stay warm and toasty!

    Hi!

    Have been following your blog for over an year now. Love the little snippets of your life!!

    Your new line of fabrics is awesome!! I see that everybody is loving it. Saw Film in the Fridge's quilt made with one of the colorways yesterday and was really pleased to see how the entire set comes together so beautifully.

    Your family is awesome too. Love Roman in particular!!

    All the best.

    All the way from India.

  23. Haha, more cocoa & marshmallows for us!

    Anna Maria, the color in your photographs is always so beautiful!!
    That berry- pink! Wow!

  24. Once, when we were kids, we were flooded into our house (we lived in the forest) and couldn't get to town for more than a week. We survived on pumpkin soup (from the garden) and making corn bread (from popping corn), but not much else. Finally on day 6, the state emergency service helicoptered some food to us. You know what they brought us - weetbix, milk and boring sliced white sandwich bread. All we wanted was chocolate (and the adults wanted adult drinks and things...) and delicious yummy things.
    Cocoa and marshmallows sounds delicious. Even in this hot weather in Australia (we've been at the beach all day, getting sun burnt!!).
    Beautiful photographs.

  25. Like Ellie (above), I am sitting in the middle of a hot Australian summer, cooling off just by looking at your delightful snowy images. Those berries are simply beautiful - not to mention the gorgeous hat & scarf combo. However, the hot chocolate and marshmallows will have to go on hold for a few months!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love how your photos are always so bright and cheery! That hot chocolate sure does look delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  27. There is nothing more soothing than hot chocolate on cold days. Love the photos and the scarf and hat.

  28. Happy New Year, Anna! I'm looking forward to lots of inspiring posts and photos from you this year.

  29. LOLOL - thank you, a good laugh is just what I needed! (And your photos are gorgeous, as always).

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lovely photos! Is there a pattern for the scarf and hat?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Dittos on where to find the scarf & hat combo pattern. You have such a way with colors.

  32. Love your crocheting!

    Anna will you please start a Little Folks Flickr group? I am jumping in to cut my new stash of it soon - and I had to get some flannel, too, after I decided the voile would be for me/ My daughter will get a cozy flannel blanket. I also forsee lots of sundresses out of it this summer!

    I live in Houston so I am TOTALLY unequiped for dealing with the cold weather we have been having. It's really been ridiculous. In fact I am sure I have gained 5 lbs. because of the mass quantity of hot cocoa that I have been drinking to stay warm. Oh and I found a cocoa/carmel flavor which I love...velvety chocolate with a bit of salty caramel flavor to it, pure heaven!

    ReplyDelete
  37. oh Anna, give me hot chocolate and marshmellows at the moment, we've got an over night low of 86 F tonight in Melb Australia, I'm having iced tea...yum

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think I may have to rethink all of the colors in my home. Your blog is causing me undo hardship : ) Not to mention the best looking cup of cocoa I have ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  39. That hat and scarf are amazing...not that you have any extra time on your hands or anything (Ha!) but I'd love to know how to make them!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. How I would love to have some of my Dad's hot milk concoction right now!

  41. As a teacher in Franklin, I loved those snow days! What a happy surprise. I just hope you managed to send your kiddos out in what I refer to as the "dandruff"...being from Indiana, we practically had to be up to our eyeballs b/f they let us out! Love the blog as always...

  47. So true! My husband always wonders why everyone feels a sudden need for French toast when a storm is coming!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh I agree about the storm preparations and have no respect for people who don't know how to prepare for emergencies! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I too am totally loving the hat and scarf.
    When storms hit, I find that although in the refrigerated section the "regular" dairy and eggs are the first to go. All I usually have to do is walk to the natural foods aisle in my neighborhood supermarket and get the organic eggs and milk. They are usually reliably stocked. Organic mania, obviously not in my 'hood yet.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh, How I wish I am there and feel the snow. LOL!!! Have a cozy weekend!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Beautiful.

    And I'm with everyone else. I simply NEED to know where you got that hat and scarf - is there a pattern?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yours photos are terribly great. I love it !!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Most of our storms are not huge snowstorms (living on the northern edge of the South) but bad thunderstorms. So I grew up befuddled by the egg/milk run because once the power went out, and it always did, no one was allowed to open the fridge. What good were the milk and eggs? But the hot chocolate and marshmellows are a must!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Ooooh, that hat is too cute; the perfect answer to a grey snowy day!

  55. Anonymous7:48 PM

    yes! hot cocoa! we've been drinking it since it started to get cold.....we didn't even wait for a snowstorm!

    I'm guessing the hat/scarf are a connected combo....I'm sure you made it....please share where you got the pattern! LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors! They are so YOU!

  56. I heard a foreign comic once ponder why Americans were always in such a mad scurry to make French toast in the face of pending snowstorms. ha!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Anna, I've been reading your blog for over a year and it's always pure pleasue to see your pictures and read about your creative life. I've been anxiously awaiting the pattern for the crocheted hat/scarve you made for your daughter. When you get it posted, my hooks and yarn are ready!
