winter wonderland in waterland


We have had beautiful weather here in The Netherlands this weekend. It has been snowing and the sun was shining. Ice was thick enough to skate so many people went outside on their skates. The winter wonderland images above and below were taken in our village in Waterland, The Netherlands.


The top picture shows our house and backyard in a winter setting. The image below is the view from our living room and backyard. As you can imagine we have had a wonderful weekend. I hope you have been enjoying yours as well!

  11. Danielle-
    Your snow cover looks just beautiful! We’ve only had a few snowstorms which is very unusual for us in northern Ohio. Hopefully they’ll get the roads cleared for Monday’s work day.

    Enjoy the beauty of it all!

  19. Such lovely photos! We live in Canada (southern Ontario) and have had an odd winter- a couple of snow storms but then warm days that follow melt most of the snow. We live on a lake but no chance to skate here this year.
    I love your home- is there any chance you might post a photo tour of your house? We are currently looking for house plans to build a new home in 2 years. We would love a house with loft bedrooms & vaulted ceilings but find it difficult to find existing plans to our liking. Would love to see what the interior of your house is like.
    Thanks for the lovely winter inspiration photos.
