Ruby Tuesday - Winter Wonderland

IMG_3211
Having just celebrated Groundhog Day with what can be perceived as the world's best dessert - raspberries, good quality vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream - there's of course a longing for warmer, brighter, greener days inside me too. But, when the winter magicians have done their job in a proper way...

...there's really no denying that we're living in a gorgeous, enchanting, picture postcard winter wonderland on these latitudes, don't you agree? And if one finds oneself at crossroads in these neighbourhoods, one just might be lucky enough to meet...

... a real, happy in red crossbreed ("vägkorsning") that will get life back on track. And then, after having experienced the appropriately seasonal Swedish outdoor adventures there's nothing that quite beat the fact that you do live in a warm and cosy house...

... where there's a new sofa cover with red rosebuds, which makes the perfect place for a snuggly snooze oblivion to the cold, harsh, white outside world.

That dessert looks fantastic!

And I want to snuggle on the couch as well... so glad I don't live in snow but your photos are great :)

Ralph said...

That desert looks great, and ice cream is fine for sweets, even in the cold winter.

The red house with the drifting snow cover looks fine, the pure white snow looks so clean, and the air is always fresh.

Knut is doing what cats do best, in any season!

The house looks so warm and cozy - the perfect place to be on a wintery, snowy day!

Dora said...

I luv the ice-cream! Kitty is shy to see us? ;p

Jan said...

Pia, a wonderful collections of reds. Can I save the dessert for later?

Felisol said...

Hello, Pia,
I sure would like some Groundhog dessert! Ice cream and whipped cream together are perfect.
The winterwonderland is just the place to be in early February.
Like a fantasy world.
We have sun from 9 in the morning till half past five in the afternoon. Winter is not so bad, when one only got some warm clothes, and beautiful Knut to come home to.
Liked your sofa spread too.
Rosebuds must be very much you.
From Felisol

Now I'm graving for Vanilla ice cream :D
That house looks so cozy, despite the snow!
And dog and kitty are just cute :D
Lovely shots & happy Ruby Tuesday :)

Anne said...

The dessert looks so awesome. I got something like it a few weeks ago, but with the addition of crumbled meringues.

Catherine said...

I take all the options. This beautiful Red house covered and surrounded by snow is so pleasant to watch. But I would rather prefer to stay inside, like your cat instead of staying outside with the red crossbreed. I thought first it was a fox. I would choose just raspberries and whipped cream. Ice is so cold, but your dessert looks so sweet.

Robin said...

What a beautiful house, all tucked away in the snow like that.

As for the dessert, I'm trying hard to see only those gorgeous red rasberries - I'm on a diet!

Becky said...

The dessert looks wonderful and I really like the photograph of the red buildings in the snow.

My RT image is posted here. Please stop by if you get a chance.

Wow, Pia, I can't take my eyes off the RED raspberries and vanilla ice cream, Yum! Great photos for Ruby Tuesday! :)

Pia K said...

Thanks, Kay, well sometimes life is as simple and great as that, an amazing plus easy dessert and a new sofa cover:)

Ralph - thanks for coming by with a thoughful comment as always. I'm glad you remember Knut, but actually, this is his older halfsister Eulalia (11 this summer)... :)

Indeed it is, Tink, thanks for visiting.

Glad you liked them, YEGTG, I've already left a wee message at yours...;)

Paz - pleased you enjoyed your visit:)

Pia K said...

Dora - I should say that kitty is too tired to say hello..;)

Fine by me, Jan, save the dessert for later...:)

Sweet comment as always, Felisol, how did you know that rosebuds are very me, I like that:)

Thanks, Nicole, hope you treated yourself to some icecream!

Thanks for visiting, Anne, I guess meringue on top can be nice too, although I like those crumbles chewy...:)

Pia K said...

Catherine - I know, it does look kind of like a fox and not a dog, but the text says different and then there's the thing with so called "roundabout dogs" which have been a topic in Sweden these past few years, people putting different types of artsy dogs at roundabouts all over the country. Glad you liked the pics:)

Thanks for visiting, Robin, oh I guess you have to save the cream and icecream for later then:)

Pleased you enjoyed your visit, Becky!

Oh, too bad, Pagan Sphinx, nope this was the only comment from you I got...:/ Feel free to try again:)

Thanks for visiting, Dianne.

Rose said...

Oh, John, whenever there's a hint of desserts then you come here with exclamations marks and such, I wonder why...;)

Thanks, Mary T, glad you enjoyed!

Thanks for stopping by, Rose.

Thanks for your visit, Olga.

Glad you liked them, AFoS!
