Winter Decorating On Golden Ranch

Winter Decorating On Golden Ranch

Christmas is over, but the joy continues, just in a different manner. I hadn't shared any interior holiday photos, as it's our first Christmas On Golden Ranch, and we didn't go hog wild. We had just moved in October 28th, had Thanksgiving and barely decorated the ranch before we kicked into holiday decorating and changed some of it! 

I took a couple of post-Christmas-weekend-now- it's-snowing photos. 











Winter on Golden Ranch 12.17.15-Gayle Rich-Boxman 2015 












                                     Wildlife and nature are our general theme.





But a girl's gotta have sparkle!



















Pillows are always easy. This one is a photo I took of Fishhawk Lake several winters ago.

Endre Barath, Jr. blessings upon you for stopping by this evening! I had a devil of a time getting these photos to "take" and stay on the post. But, since you gave me the thumbs up, it was worth it!

I was not aware your part of Oregan was that cold.  We got a white Xmas on the mountain top while eastern US was having 70s....

Thanks so much in sharing,

The owl on top of the tree is fantastic! What a great idea!


Thanks for the heads up on my missing photo - I went back in and added it again. Don't know what happened to it...............

I love the owls you used in decorating and especially on top of the tree. Your place looks so relaxing and I know you are loving it. How far from Fishhawk Lake are you now?

'Owl be Bachk'  too funny.  And yes the girl does have sparkle.  While you feel you did not have a chance to decorate it seems lovely and warm to me.  Nice.  I think in one of your past posts you gave us the maker of those custom pillows didn't you?  Enjoy the rest of your day.  Mark
