Marshmallows dipped in chocolate, rolled in sugar,
and speared with a peppermint stick. 
This would be good to put in hot chocolate!

  1. i saw the same red truck in some other photos and thought it looked like something from colorado! gorgeous photos from a beautiful part of the world.
    merry christmas!

  2. Your photos are unbelievably beautiful! I especially love the old red chevy photos, and the lovely red horse. I'm going to attempt a batch of those marshmallows!

  3. I love the horse pictures - makes me want to go horseback riding in the snow again. And I'll be making some of those marshmallow/peppermint sticks!! MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!!

  4. Oh Loui, what spectacular images. I want to BE in that picture with the red barn, and also with the horses, and ... well, all of them.
    Provided I was dressed warmly enough, hahaha!
    Merry Christmas, my dear friend!

  5. Beautiful photos! I really enjoyed the pops of Red! Wishing you a lovely Christmas. hugs, Linda

  6. You captured a Colorado Christmas perfectly, Loui!

  7. Wow. Such beautiful pictures! I envy your creative talent. :o)

  8. Such wonderful shots and so very Christmasy. :-) Merry Christmas!

  9. What a gorgeous Winter Wonderland, Loui! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    With my sincerest wishes to you and your family for the best Christmas ever!


  10. All these decorations make so much more sense in snow than sitting on green manicured lawns. The bleak snowly landscape just begs to be decorated. So have you make any snow mermaids yet :)

  11. I've never been to Colorado, but it's obviously beautiful! Those pictures are wonderful!

    Merry Christmas!

  12. Get that red Chevy out again, please. I wanna ride!


    Red hat, I am lonesome.
    Red hat, are you free?
    Red hat, please consider
    Coming home with me.

    I need a companion,
    One who’ll warm my head;
    I think you’ll do nicely,
    Hat of brilliant red.

    You’re the warmest color,
    Not like blue or green—
    Red hat at the vendor’s,
    Red hat, you’re my queen.

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
