Baby it's cold outside.

Hello my lovelies.
Thank you for all of your lovely comments you left on my last post. It was so difficult not to share my makes with you during December, lol.
This it todays view from my attic window.
I'm very glad the snow hasn't settled any lower down!
It's amazing the difference a few metres make.
This is what we had over Christmas. It looks spectacular doesn't it? We're about 4 miles from home at this point.

Aaah that's better nearly home.
I love it when I can see the 3 'bumps' on the right and 1 in front, that means we're almost home, a couple more bends in the road and we'll be in our little village.


This was part of our Boxing Day walk. I just have to show you the frozen beck. This is the bridge at Gayle in Wensleydale, the beck is almost completely frozen.

This the view from the bridge...

a closer look, the waterfalls have frozen completely!
It was beautiful.

This it the waterfall I usually show you as it's the bridge I cross to get to our lovely little post office in Hawes. Lets take a closer look at this one too.

On the far right next to the wall there is a huge arc of frozen ice with water gushing underneath it! Very strange to watch.
Brrrr... time to return to my sewing machine I think.
I just needed to share these extraordinary pics with you.
love fi x

Hey Fi, what amazing pics, must've been chilly out taking them......
Thankyou for popping by and I hope I have planted a little bunting idea, as I would love to see what you make......
Thanks for jogging my memory regarding Goathland, it was a lovely visit too.
Hope things are a little warmer for you.

It looks really beautiful but I bet it was cold. We don't get many waterfalls in Norfolk.

It's so beautiful up there. What an artist nature is - man couldn't make such beautiful ice sculptures!

How beautiful it is where you live. And I love those felted handbags you made. Wish I was your 56 yr old Auntie! (Want to adopt me? I could very easily be the funny, old, batty aunt -- it just comes naturally.)

Love your blog.

What a enchanting place to live! Your views are just stunning and I love the village and the frozen stream and waterfalls.

potterjotter said...

Wow! Great to see those familiar waterfalls like that - have seen 'em in summer and in full flood after autumn rains, but never like that. Wonderful.

topchelseagirl said...

Martha in Kansas (US) said...

Wow! That's amazing and beautiful. Thanks for sharing the photos. It wasn't till I enlarged on to look at it well that I realized people live in the houses right there at the falls. How fun would that be! But I'd never get anything done for looking out the windows at the water! I have to admit you've sent me to Bing and Google maps to look at your part of the world. What a nice place to live!

It is hard to think that our altitude is exactly the same as yours - there always seems to be so much more ice up there.

veryberryhandmade said...

What a lovely photos... and how jealous am I of the lovely landscape you live in. :D

kidscakesandcobwebs said...

Your photos are gorgeous, I love what snow does to the landscape - Suddenly something familiar becomes exotic and you discover it all over again.

Thanks for sharing!
