This and That

Hello everyone,

    We are getting a good amount of snow that started this afternoon and is continuing until midnight-it sure does change the look of things in a hurry -it looks very Christmasy at the moment.
  I am still having camera problems but I discovered that it works with my macro and telephoto lens so I can at least take some shots with those lens.My camera comes up error 99 when I shoot with the lens that came with the camera if anyone knows why -please let me know.
    The red and white toile Father Christmas is one of my favorite Christmas decorations as I think he was made for my kitchen with all the red and white transferware dishes.


I changed my bay window arrangement for the season as the chaise has gone back upstairs to my bedroom for now.

Do you see the beautiful painting my friend Heather painted for Lucas' tea party.My friend Linda(we met through blogging) is having the tea party at her home in Saint John NFLD, as a fundraiser for our little Lucas.He is travelling  to Montreal  from the Island each week for a drug trail.Aren't friends just the best!!! By the way, Lucas is doing well and he and his Mom are great little travellers.
This is a closeup and if you look carefully you can see Lucas and his two brothers skating on our pond with our house in the background.Look even closer and you can see my husband feeding the bonfire and I am sure that is me doing a pirouette gracefully with one of my granddaughters!
Lucas and his Mom's friend Lise(lmthomsen@live.com if you would like to email Leis to order one) made this adorable sock monkey that is also on the way to Linda's tea party.Don't worry Lucas has his own sock monkey that he loves to cuddle as you can see above.If you would like to visit Linda at her beautiful blog click here. Unfortunately for us, Heather does not have a blog.
This afternoon we started to get snow but there is quite a bit more down now.You might notice that there are still red leaves on the pear tree beside the cottage-unusual to have that and a good cover of snow.

I put the old skates that were in the cottage out on the storm door where they will stay for the winter.
Our old wheelbarrow got a coat of gray stain also and is filled with the greenery that I will use to fill the urns etc.


I hope you are snug and warm wherever you are!

Here in Canada we already celebrated our Thanksgiving but I would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!

I am joining French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.

Thank you for visiting ,

Carolyn
