Let it Snow, Let it Snow...

....let it STOP!

Second time shovelling today!  Hus did the first round.  But the shovelling is easier in Alberta compared to the North Coast of BC where the snow comes down sodding wet and heavy.  I am also sporting my new (yes, brand new for once!) Calvin Klein parka.  At least I got it on a 50% off sale.  I am thinking that I am going to need the hood once the temperature drops some more (its about -10 C today).  

The wintery, Christmas-y title of this post also suits some of my recent thrift finds:

Like this circa-1978 embroidered picture.  If I can't get cold chills from looking out my window, I can get them by looking at my wall!  Actually I think it is really well done and it goes well with our minty-green walls.  I think I paid 5 bucks.

Maybe I'll be in the kitchen with the blinds closed, and want a reminder of the snow...
....I only have to look at my circa-1980 table centrepiece!  Can you believe that all I need is an aluminum can to complete my snow friend?  That's my kind of crafting!

While I was scouring the Christmas wares at the Salvation Army, I also bought a few ornaments, 'cause I can't help myself.

There are quite a few pink balls in the box, although from the picture you can't tell them from the red ones.  I also liked these smaller ones.

I feel for you with the snow thing...it's relentless! Love your thrifty finds!

"SCORE" on all the snow and your great buys. Your blog made me cold...LOL. Thunder storms tonight and rain maybe hail an hopefully no tornado. Quite the forecast here in northern Missouri USA. Now for some hot cocoa.

Eww! I've been hearing from my Mom in Ottawa about the snow 'out west'. At least you've started the season in style in your new parka. :) I love the retro Xmas ornaments - even the box brings back memories!

Looks like you found some cool ornaments despite Mother Nature's best attempt to keep you indoors. Shoveling by November 16th is not something we often have experienced. I hope the snow hasn't forced you to hibernate and we hope your holidays were bright! (Rob)
