A Winter Pergola

The pergola construction came to a halt this past weekend.  Our temperature dropped in the teens and we had snow.  I thought I would show you the progress so far.


The top boards still have to be added.  Mr. Comforts of Home will get back out there when the snow leaves and the temperature rises....


In the meantime, the pergola got a little holiday dressing too.

p.s. you have asked about my shoulder.  It is still the same.  MRI on Thursday. 
Welcome Home,
Penny

You'll have to repost these photos in the summer when everything is green and beautiful. Stay warm.

Looking good so far, even with the snow.
What a nice thing to look forward to when the weather turns warmer.
Your header is very cozy looking.

Penny, thanks for sharing your snow with us. So pretty. Love that last shot.

These photos give us a good idea of how big the pergola will look and how big it will be. It's going to be gorgeous. I have a thing for pergolas:>) Now you can look out and dream about spring!

Hi Penny, the pergola is coming along nicely.. hopefully we can get around to doing ours soon. It all looks so pretty covered in snow. I think if we got snow where I lived I wouldn't mind winter so much. I just think it makes everything look so magical! thanks for visiting me too! take care, Maryann

Donna said...

Wow, Penny, look at all your snow! It's beautiful, and so is the pergola (or it will be soon)! I like how you decorated it with a wreath.

Happy day to you! (hope you're doing well)
Hugs,
Donna

Looks like half the work is done with the main part up! Spring will be here again soon and you are going to have you a really nice outdoor entertaining area! ~ Hugs, Patti

Pat said...

Beautiful Penny. It's coming right along. You have lots more snow than we do.

Vee said...

You in North Carolina have snow; I in Maine have none. What is wrong with this picture?

Nothing wrong with the pergola's! It looks wonderful dressed for Christmas.

Vanessa said...

How great that you even dressed up your wintery pergola! :-) Thanks for showing us the progress!
Vanessa
P.S. Hope your shoulder improves!

Well, even if it's not finished, it's still pretty to look at and the wreath just tops it off perfectly! Take it easy with that shoulder my friend and enjoy this beautiful month! Come say hi :D

The pergola is looking good...like the wreath...very festive! I know you'll be happy to get that MRI over and done!

Jojo said...

With the snow and wreath, it's perfectly decorated!

Beverly said...

Brrr, Penny. It looks very cold - and it is very cold. Stay inside and keep safe and warm.

It sounds like you really did "a job" on your shoulder. I am praying for healing and no pain.

see you there! said...

I had to giggle at the fact that you decorated the not yet finished pergola. It looks so festive with the snow and I my first thought was "That Penny, she can decorate ANYTHING", LOL!

Penny, that snowy backyard with the wreath looks so lovely. The Pergola should be wonderful in Spring. I was reading you post about your son making the cookies, and your husband decorating. Everything looks so lovely. You are in my prayers, I hope that you are not in much pain.

Good morning Penny, I think the pergola is coming right along. this snow has stopped a lot of things. It was 9 degrees this morning and the snow is not going away yet. It is so pretty but dangerous here on our mountain. I am supposed to be shopping for Christmas. Sigh!

Good luck with the MRI. I am praying for a good outcome my dear friend. Sit back, have a hot drink and enjoy your gorgeous home all decorated by people who love you.
Love, Jeanne

Blessings,

I love pergolas had one built when we added our deck a few years ago. But yours looks lovely in the snow. We are just south enough of you not to have caught any with that last storm. Shucks!!
Thinking of you and your injury hope all goes well.

Dena said...

Look at all that snow! It's so beautiful and I can't wait to see the persola this coming Spring :)

Hugs,
Dena

Sherri said...

Penny, rest your shoulder and get better soon! Good luck with the MRI Thursday! Love the Pergola so far! HUGS to you!

Pat said...

Even in winter is is beautiful. How wonderful it will be when we once again have warmer weather!

Brenda Kula said...

I hope things turn out okay on the shoulder. Your pergola looks to be a pretty good size. I didn't do a thing festive in my pavilion. Can't believe I didn't!

Your backyard looks so Christmasy, Penny! We got back from Denver yesterday and the weather there all week was so warm during the day that my husband did not wear his coat! MeanwhileNYC is having a cold snap and I have so much holiday decorating to catch up on. :)

Your christmas decor is just lovely!!!! I can't believe you y'all got so much snow!
