Two things I find most beautiful in this world are modern farmhouses and snow. However, when I went to search for ‘snow covered modern farmhouses’ on google, I was highly disappointed at what I found. While there were a few, most of them lead to spam type sites that did not allow me to find the actual owner. So, I decided I would scour the internet and find as many beautiful farmhouses covered in snow as I could and collect them in one place with clear links to their owners so we could all enjoy them together! I’ll have to admit; it was a little time-consuming. However, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment!
There is something so magical about a blanket of snow gently covering the world and making everything seem so much more beautiful. Somehow creating a soft background blurs all the imperfections and highlights the magnificent beauty all around us. I hope you enjoy these breathtaking picturesque homes and you allow them to speak to your heart and soul.
