Baby It's Cold Outside

Baby It's Cold Outside

The sounds of slush fill your ears. You watch as the misty fog escapes your mouth anytime you take a breath. With every breath a frigid prickle enters your lungs. Around you are naked trees covered in powder white snow. Glistening icicles hang off the branches creating a Winter Wonderland.

PERFECT for staying inside and dreaming of a tropical paradise cuddled up in a warm blanket with a cup of hot coco ….. start a fire...watch it light up with orange flames …. listen to the fire crackling …. smell a sweet aroma of burning wood ….let it the fire your hands.

… and pick up a book to read.

Wintering In Florida "Come On Down"

Wintering In Florida "Come On Down"

From Henry Flagler’s vision in the late 19th century to the 1950’s with Jackie Gleason promoting Miami Beach wintering in Florida has been a desire.

 As the cold and snow blanket the North “come on down” or at least find a vintage promotional piece or early book extolling the virtues of Florida to read by the fireplace.
