It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas....

Ha Ha! It's not even Halloween yet and I'm already talking about Christmas :P The great thing about having a blog is, you get to make up your own rules! Have I mentioned I'm really a Bossy Boots at heart?
Christmas in Canada usually means lots of snow, time to spend with family and friends, and enjoying Christmas traditions. My husband Mark and I always drive four hours south to visit both our families in Calgary, Alberta. I like to think I am getting a little more sensible about Christmas planning. I have realized that cramming in too many social obligations does not allow me to enjoy Christmas!
This is a youtube video of one of my favourite Christmas songs. It's a classic, sung by Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan. I think I may have posted it last Christmas, but many more of you have joined me on my blogging journey since then, so enjoy!


My special Christmas project is a Christmas Kitchen scene. I've been planning this scene since last Christmas! The baking items are almost all from my wonderful friend Jane, who writes the fabulous MiniFanaticus blog. I won her first giveaway last year. The gingerbread house is from Anna, who writes the blog It's the Little Things. I bought it from her Etsy shop. Anna is a lovely, generous miniaturist.
My talented, clever Dad built the wooden shadow box which I placed the scene in. I'm planning to wallpaper it with white wallpaper with tiny yellow flowers, but at the moment the wallpaper is residing under a heavy object, it has been rolled up so long it won't stay flat!
I have more food and accessories to add, and I have another Christmas project up my sleeve. Expect to be bombarded by more of my favourite Christmas music in the next couple months :) Enjoy the pics!

    1. Oh, thanks Drora! That's very sweet of you to be worried. I am just very busy getting out patient treatment at the hospital. But it's good to be back blogging again!
