Vermont is...

Vermont is cozy cottages with window boxes overflowing with charm.
 Views that go on forever.

Lake Champlain in all it's glory.

Scenic marinas.

Stowe, Vermont scenes are so lovely, celebrating beautiful country roads.
In South Burlington, Vermont along the downtown overlook to Lake Champlain are the most gorgeous townhomes.

I sat by the water and painted one of my favorites.

Wishing you a day of smiles.

That sweet baby-smile - there is nothing, nothing at all in the whole wide world sweeter than a new-baby-smile!
I love your first photo. Do you mind if I save it to my files? I won't use it for anything other than to inspire my husband to build window boxes for our new house. I can see the black iron peeking out through the flowers and that is just what I've been imagining for our new all-white, 1920's cottage.
Thank you for your sweet comment on the bunting at our garden birthday. That was my 'birthday card' for our wee granddaughter and it was inspired by you! Ever since you offered your beautiful series of Christmas images I have decided to try to be a little more creative. I may not be very original, but I had a lot of fun making the bunting!

There is something so comforting to see that there are still parts of this country that look like a story book. Oh how perfect are these photos for they tell me that the Vermont I always dreamed of as a kid DOES EXIST! My goodness, that lake! THE COTTAGE! Karen, you have such a rich connection to some of the most beautiful spots in New England!

Thank you dear friend for coming to visit me today! I have been working on my photography all summer long, hoping to get even better with lots of practice. I enjoy discovering beautiful places like the American Swedish Institute in my city of Minneapolis!

School meeting has started and it looks like a very positive year ahead. Many hugs and enjoy your beautiful family! Anita
