Snow Queens and their Lairs

The UK is gripped in an early Winter Freeze and now the weather is starting to close in here, Christmas is just round the corner, everyone wants to get on with things at this busy time of year but the weather is hampering matters, it's a shame these wintry conditions could not of held off for a few weeks and given everyone a long awaited White Christmas, I hope those affected are bearing up and keeping warm.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend


  1. Yes I heard that it is bitter cold there,
    Dr Zhivago was one of my parents favorite movie, it was very sad though.

    Love the dog "the snow queen" I had a dog that looked just like this sweet one -- -- and this breed is sweet & smart & friendly, makes good therapy dogs.


  2. Awww... this furry cap for a dog looks so cute! :) I would also add photos from the The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - the palace of the Witch :)

  3. The Helena Normark photo of the snowy road is breathtaking.
    I guess this is not a good time to mention how warm it is here .. my nose got more freckles after walking the dog without sunblock yesterday ..
    TGIF !

  4. Isn't that a beautiful illustration on the Snow Queen book? Gorgeous. The whippet is priceless and I love Ann Margret in Tommy and all the decor. Hope you're enjoying the snow xx

  5. Almost as though you found photographs of my dreams.

  6. The only photo missing is Tilda Swinton as the White Witch in Narnia.

  7. Gorgeous images Dash.. enjoy your weekend xx
