Jack was here...


...and here......here...

...here again...
...here also!

Old windows make the prettiest frost.
The best windows for frost in our old home are the upstairs outside storm windows. The combination windows don't make nice frost, its the storms that Jon puts on every fall and takes off every spring that really put on a show when the thermometer takes a dive. A & W's bedrooms are the best frost viewing rooms. When I rattle their cages for school on frosty morns I check out the frost on the windows. My favorite kind is when it looks like feathers with beads down the shaft and fills up the entire window. I will be sure to keep you posted if Jack Frost's anything of exceptional beauty! I do love winter!!

Yeah, well, I guess there are some good things about winter. And Mr. Frost's visits are one of them! Pretty, pretty pictures of Jack's pictures, Jody Blue! Thanks for sharing. :D

Jody Blue, you just awoke a memory hidden deep. I have not seen this Jack Frost art in many years. It is so beautiful. So Beautiful.

Reminds me of Little house on the Prairie. Remember my room in the old farm house? Lots of frost on those windows. We made art many times. I think by February it was 2 inches thick! Not to mention the ice on the walls. Burr!

Those frost patterns are absolutely beautiful. I remember seeing frost like that on the old windows I had in my Ohio bungalow. Then I had new windows put in, and alas, no more Jack Frost! (I guess that would be a good thing since they were NEW windows, LOL)

Hope your back and your camera are both doing better!

Wow! My windows don't get frost. Oh wait, it doesn't often get that cold here! We did have a little snow today for the first time this year, and maybe we'll get a little more tonight. Maybe not. I'm glad to be able to stay home and look at it instead of getting out and working in it. blessings, marlene
