A sweet Hello Winter printable with so many winter favorites pulled together for festive decor or for gifting! Did I mention it’s been created in colorful watercolor as well?
Winter is officially here! So, I should start off with an exciting proclamation of Happy Winter. To celebrate, I thought I would create a printable that features so many winter favorites.
While the temperatures are far from wintery here in Rogersville, MO right now, I’m truly dreaming of a White Christmas. How about you? Are you in an area that gets snow? Do you enjoy it?
I have so many wonderful childhood winter memories. Sledding with the family. Playing in the snow until we had to thaw out with a cup of hot cocoa. I used to wear sweaters ALL the time, but hot flashes have me wearing cardigans more than anything. It’s much easier to add or remove a layer that way (hee-hee).
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk
beside the fire: it is the time for home.” -Edith Sitwell
The cardinal was added because of my dad. He’s always been a big fan of birds. And there is something beautiful about the bright red of a cardinal with the snow in the background. Don’t you agree? The next time you’re enjoying a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa and there is snow — keep an eye out for one of these beautiful birds in your yard. They always seem to take my breath away (especially in the winter).
The silly boots make me chuckle. I remember owning a pair of ankle height duck boots and if my memory serves me correctly, I wore them when my sister and I delivered newspapers on Sunday mornings. Yep, I was a paper girl. Oh the stories I could tell — and it was never my favorite job either.
While writing this post, I’m sitting here with a big smile on my face. Winter is truly one of my favorite seasons, sometimes I think it’s all the lovely memories I have made over the years. Blessed to have parents who made the the season so memorable.
Below are two versions of this festive printable — one with a blue background and one with a white one. The white one is a little more ink friendly (wink).
Sized as an 8×10, I hope you’re able to display this somewhere where will you’ll be reminded of wonderful winter memories. Feel free to gift one to a teacher, a neighbor or friend. Thanks!
