    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Karen! I love your beautiful home and often thought pale yellow would be my first choice if we ever changed ours.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Susan, I do love our yellow house…this is the second one we have had. There is nothing more enjoyable than driving up to it on a grey day and to be greeted by its warm and inviting color. Thank you for your wish. I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas and New Year as well.

  18. Thanks for the holiday greetings, and Merry Christmas to you! Your house looks so great in the snow, by the way.

  19. Karista says:

    Merry Christmas Karen! :)

  20. Have a lovely Christmas! Your house looks so perfectly Christmas-y, right down to the icicles. It looks like it was shot on a beautiful day, too.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Siobhan, I think there is nothing prettier than a winter day when the sun is out and makes the snow and icicles sparkle. It is like Mother nature decorating the glitter. Thank you for your nice comment and wishes. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.

  21. Carine says:

    Thank you! Merry Christmas to you and yours too!

  22. Spoon Feast says:

      Hi Pamela, Thank you for your lovely compliment. Everyone loves having a white Christmas…just not too much and not while everyone is traveling. I hope your have a wonderful Christmas.

  23. Gary Lum says:

    Hi Karen,

    *hugs*

  24. Your picture looks like a post card. Hope you enjoy your celebration!

      Thank you Southern, for your nice compliment and wish. Everything was perfect when I took the photo…sun, no clouds in the sky and fluffy white snow. I hope you will have a lovely Christmas as well.

  27. Merry Christmas & a great New Year.
    When I see icicles (even though your house is beautiful) I think triple glazing!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Johnny, Thank goodness for a modern heating system as our windows are very old…even have the wavy glass with bubbles in them. Thank you for your wish…I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year as well.

  28. Hotly Spiced says:

    Your house decorated for Christmas is just stunning. It’s like something out of a picture book. Merry Christmas to you and all your family, Karen xx

      Thank you Richard, for your nice compliment about our home. I do love it when our home is decorated with a little (the perfect amount is about 3 inches) of snow. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.

  38. Thank you Karen for such a beautiful and warm post! Have a wonderful holidays too!

  39. Mad Dog says:

    What amazing snow! I hope you have a fantastic Christmas :-)

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Mad Dog, I’m glad that you enjoyed the photo of our home. One nice thing about living in a rural area is that when it snows, it stays pristine and white. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Actually, knowing you, I know it will be terrific.

  40. Sarah says:

    Oh, how pretty! Your house looks so festive and beautiful. Merry Christmas Karen! I hope 2013 brings you much love and happiness. :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Barb, We were on each other’s blog at the same time. Thank you for your lovely compliment. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas as well…enjoy all those wonderful cookies that you have made together.

  43. Debra Kolkka says:

    The same to you Karen. Wonderful photo.

  48. Norma Chang says:

    Merry Christmas to you too and a Healthy, Happy New Year!!!!!

  49. Happy Christmas Eve and Holidays Karen. Whilst your home looks like a Christmas card it is around 65 degrees F here in Nashville and a bit rainy and dark…so I look at your home in the snow and sigh! But inside my home it is cozy and warm and Christmasy and I am soon to start baking and getting ready for family to arrive and all is well regardless of the weather. Have a very Happy Holiday.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Teresa, No matter the weather outside, I know that your house will be filled with Christmas smells and laughter soon. Have a lovely Christmas. Thank you for your nice wish.

  50. sheila365 says:

    Gorgeous! Merry Christmas to you, too!

  51. Mary says:

    I hope you, too, have a wonderful holiday. Hugs and Christmas blessings…Mary

  52. Merry Christmas! Be safe!

  53. Merry Christmas to you and yours! Once again (I know I’ve said if before) your yellow home is so cheery!! We are expecting nearly a foot of snow here after midnight so all our celebrating with others will be this evening and then home for several days because, as you know, the Central Southern U.S. is not prepared for 2 inches of snow – much less a foot!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your Christmas wish, Kelli. Oh my…New Hampshire is used to snow and a foot at one time is a lot, please take care. I always stay in after a snow storm until the roads have all been cleared.

  54. Thank you Karen, and wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy and joy filled new year x

  55. megtraveling says:

      Thank you very much Adin, for your lovely compliment. I’m glad you enjoyed the photo of our home. We do love it, especially when it is decorated at Christmas.

  66. Merry Christmas Karen! and all the best in 2013! I’m always a few days (or weeks) behind in reading the blogs I follow, but I do eventually get to read them and always enjoy it when I do. I’m so glad to have found your blog this year! Dana

    • Karen says:

      Merry Christmas Dana. I hope you had a lovely day. I always appreciate when you have time to stop by for a visit, whenever it is. It is lovely to know that you enjoy your visits…thank you for your compliment.

  70. Boy, does that look like Christmas!! Buon Natale to you and your family!

  71. Sending holiday blessings your way! Your home looks like a Christmas card, so lovely all attired in white!

  72. Eva Taylor says:

    Mary

  79. Picture perfect New England Christmas! Have a great holiday!

  80. kiwidutch says:

    Your house looks like a perfect Christmas Card photo! Very impressive and I love the decorations on both floors too! The icicles hanging from the roof look magical too :) btw Do New England houses not have rain gutters and downpipes?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kiwidutch, I have to agree with you about our house looking like a Christmas card with the snow all around and icicles hanging from the roof. I’m glad that you enjoyed the photos of the inside from the previous posts, as well. Rain gutters and downpipes can cause lots of problems in the parts of New England that get lots of snow. They can cause ice dams that will create roof leaks. Even without them, there are worries about ice dams.

      • kiwidutch says:

        You can tell I never encounter weather that causes “ice dams” LOL that’s even a new phrase for me :)
        Now that I’ve learned that ice dams exist, it entirely logical why you wouldn’t want to have gutters and down pipes. The inside of your home is stunning, I loved the photos :)

      • Karen says:

        Believe me…I had no idea about ice dams before I move to New England from Florida. Thank you again, for your lovely compliment about our home and your visit.

  81. cabinet stew says:

    LOL – we have gutters and extended downspouts (or else we might have water in the basement) and until we actually purchased a roof rake, and actually use it after a big snow, we had lots of trouble with ice dams on the shady side of the roof – ugh!
