Snow White

Smuggler’s Notch, VT I love snow, do you?  As a matter of fact, I have used the Benjamin Moore color “Snow White” a couple of times lately.  Hmmm, this means something.   I love nature and love to use it inside as well.  What do you love about the outdoors? This may tell you what colors [...]
