Babs says Old Man Winter is a doll

Posted on January 3, 2010


I slipslid home through the snow tonight, climbed up the steps Tom Morrison had blessedly cleared, and opened the latest missive from Babs Young:

I will not be getting any holiday cards out for this holiday season, so this will have to serve as my wish for a very Happy New Year to each of you. This wonderful Santa or Old Man Winter was created by my friend Joanne Robben who summers up here and spends the rest of the year in Peachtree City, Georgia. This old guy won second place at a doll making conference in Canada last year. He is pretty special and has a nice home on our mantle year around.

Often when I am out and about on my rounds people tell me how much they love the beautiful images Babs sends to Torch Lake Views. Me too. Happy New Year, Babs!

Every week photographer Babs Young captures moments in northern Michigan, and every week she sends one to Torch Lake Views just for you. You can find more of her photos at the Babs Young Photo Archives and on her Blue Heaven Flickr photostream.
