Just a few of the winter things that I wanted to share with you. They make me happy!
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.
Cindy and I were so lucky years ago to meet Dave Francis in Castlegar BC.
We got to see him carve at his home. We knew him before he became a really well known carver of these wonderful Christmas Santa's.
I have about 10 of his carving back home in BC which I plan to bring them down here for next Christmas. Cindy has a great selection of his carvings as well.
Check out his website: http://www.snowcottagecarvings.com/
He will be in the 2010 issue N0v/Dec issue of Woodcarving Illustrated
We are so proud of you Dave for the wonderful carvings that you create! You keep the spirit of Christmas alive with your work.
Cold front coming down from Canada of all places, go figure!
We will need to put on some long pants and sweaters for a few days.
We went into the golf cart parade yesterday in our community We decorated the house and then the golf cart, which means a festive start for the season.
Off to visit Shannon for a few days and finish off my Christmas shopping. I will leave you with some images of my faourite store, Domestic Bliss!
