I love the little smirk on Frosty's face!
This gold one just glows at night.
My in-laws have a red barn that looks exactly like this one.
Happy Holidays to all of you who celebrate this season, and all the best to each and everyone of you regardless of who or what you celebrate!

Last week I got a nice surprise! My purse pattern, Waves of Ruffles, was one of the items featured in this beautiful treasury that made it to the front page of Etsy! Thank you justEARRINGS.

It looks pretty, but I sure don't want to go out and shovel!

We are expecting heavy snowfall this evening to welcome in the first day of winter. The Environment Canada Weather forecast states:
"Snow at times heavy and blowing snow beginning this evening. Amount 20 to 30 cm. Wind east 20 km/h increasing to 40 gusting to 60 this evening. Temperature rising to minus 2 by morning."
What will we wake up too? Will we be snowed in? Will it pass us by? Will we have a white Christmas? I guess I'll just have to go to bed and dream of snowflakes and hope for the best. Happy Winter everybody!

My silverware, Floral Queen, was a gift from my parents the first Christmas we were married. For dinner we had turkey and dressing, green bean casserole, Italian strata, carrot salad and bread and butter pickles (thanks to my mother-in-law), oriental salad and cranberry chutney (thanks to my Mom), seafood salad, pickles and fancy pulled pork sandwiches. For desert we had cheesecake with cherries and whipped cream. Yummy!

This one looks good! It even has pink and blue ribbons on it!

It can be made with either 2 strands of any medium or worsted weight yarn, like this red and white one. I used 100% wool in Briggs and Little for this one so that it will be nice and warm.
Or you can use the Homespun Yarn from Lion Brand for a really soft hat. They have the nicest selection of colours too.
I really like how this hat frames your face and you can actually wear your bangs out, instead of tucking them in for minimal "hat head". I also added some matching ribbons in the braids for a real personal touch.

Last night while I was decorating the house, I was listening to a Christmas CD that I made of some of my favorite Christmas music. Notes of brilliance wafted through the house...Ave Maria, Greensleeves, Silver Bells, Edelweiss, The Muppet's.....The Muppet's?! Yes, the Muppet's Christmas Album is my all time Christmas favorite! Growing up in the country we didn't have access to all the Christmas music that we have today. Albums were hard to find and the money was tight, but John Denver and the Muppet's filled our old farm house with such cheer! I laugh at Miss Piggy's dismay at "Piggy Pudding!?", smile at Animal's break out of Christmas Cheer, dream about Alfie the Christmas tree and cry a little when I hear "When the River Meets the Sea". I had the best childhood! Thanks Mom!

This little Charlie Brown tree followed me home today!
This little tree helps me cover two collections: tree AND blown glass!
Opps, this little set followed me home today too!
