Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

Well our winter wonderland melted away in the rain on Saturday, but I've heard some of you out there in the middle of the US have got quite a bit of snow left on the ground! :) I personally wish there was snow on the ground around here from Christmas till Easter, but (as I might have mentioned) most of my family and friends think I'm crazy! So to keep your spirits up even in the deepest snow, here is a song bringing to mind the nicer parts of have a white winter!

Winter Wonderland was written in 1934 by Felix Bernard and Richard B. Smith. It has been recorded many times by many different people, though I must admit my favorite version is in the sequel to the cartoon Frosty the Snowman called Frosty's Winter Wonderland. So here we go, a wintry wonderland of Etsy goodies! Enjoy! :)

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Gone away is the bluebird,
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song,
As we go along,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

When it snows, ain't it thrilling,
Though your nose gets a chilling
We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Have a great day everyone! :)

P.S. If you want to see all the snow we got around here (before it melted), check out my Flickr!


  1. I live in the middle of Canada - we have quite a bit of snow. Actually almost had a snow storm on Christmas day, did manage to get about 1 ft. of snow :)
    To bad cold temps come along with the snow.

  2. all our snow was rained away before I could go "walking in a winter wonderland"... ah well, I guess that's what late January is for :D

    pretty selections :D

  3. Autum2May, I'm with you! I love the wintry white stuff! I guess that's partially because we don't see too much of it on Long Island. :) But I love the wintry mix you've featured! Thank you so much, it's an honor to be included. :o)

  4. HI - thanks for including my "winter wonderland" photograph on your blog!

    Hurry up Spring, winter at 7,000 is TOO long!

    Happy New Year - Cheyenne

  5. Audrey - Wow! I would think you have quite a bit of snow all winter! I used to live in Vermont, and I remember having snow from Thanksgiving to Easter. :)

    Lindsey - Ours was gone pretty fast too, but we did get to play in it for one day at least. :)

    ShadedMemories - You're very welcome! I live in South Jersey at the moment, so a good snow storm is something we only get once in a while as well.

    Cheyenne - You're very welcome also! I usually get tired of winter about a month too soon. I think that might be a Jersey thing though, the weather changes too much to get used to it. :)

    Happy New Year Everyone!

    Jennie :)
