Winter White ~~~ Two Meanings





As I looked out my window in the early morning hours, this was the view this morning.  This is definition number one of Winter White.





Oh yes, Mother Nature is still having fun with winter…..  It is beautiful, I’ll have to admit.



Looking out the back, there were eyes peering back at me.  He stood as still as a cold, frozen statue.




I wanted to invite him in to warm his toes and maybe give him a little bite to eat.  What are these beautiful creatures eating these days??





Here is the another definition of Winter White.  



In all my years, I don’t believe I’ve ever owned a Winter White coat.  Shopping with my sister and mother last fall, I tried this on and decided it was time I own a white coat.   Well guess what?  I’m scared to wear it!  It took me a good six weeks to cut the tags off and another week to take it out on the deck and slather it with a can of Scotchguard.


I have started to wear it now and find everywhere I go, someone seems to like it.  It feels very dressy and I like having a coat in a color I’ve never owned before.


My daughter, Jamie recently heard me use the term and had never heard it.  She now has a beautiful white coat of her own.  She admitted she likes to use the words “Winter White”.



This is another Winter White item in my closet which I have enjoyed.  Mr. Brown Socks actually gave it to me for Christmas last year.  He did good, didn’t he? 


You don’t have to know that I picked it out.   ;;)



It’s reversible going from furry to suede and I can pair it with so much.  It goes well with shades of brown or black and grey.  It came from Coldwater Creek.







I’m pretty sure these young ones are brothers, or at least cousins.



Do you have a Winter White coat or anything in your wardrobe this color?

Jamie and I are going Bridal Gown shopping tomorrow.  It’s an exciting time.  Enjoy your weekend, Dear Blogging Friends.

I love your winter white coat! I only have one short jacket in winter white and I rarely wear it because I know it will get dirty. Isn't that silly?

Have fun shopping for wedding dresses. I hope that Jaime will find exactly what she wants.

I love your winter white coat. It's so chic! I also adore that vest. I find myself wanting to wear a vest a lot lately. They seem to do the trick keeping me the right temperture. Very classy, my dear!

winter white wonderland...beautiful pics. I love your coat. My winter coat is brown...but I think I would like a white one in the future. Everything would match it for sure. I'm sure you look classic in it!

Ooh, I love your coat and vest! I can really relate to your fear of wearing that coat, though. Good thinking to Scotch Guard it.
As for those deer - after their cousins ate my tomato plants and flowers for several years in a row, I have a hard time feeling kindly toward them. They are pretty, though.
