Just a few photos of some of my Christmas Decorating. I have not finished yet, but I am off school this week, so hopefully I will finish in a day or two. I have a few more orders to do up for Christmas and then I can relax. I attended a sewing gathering last night in Exeter and we had a really nice dinner and then another one tomorrow night at my friend Brenda's house in Strathroy. We are doing a Potluck dinner and it is always just wonderful. This has become a yearly Christmas tradition. The snow has finally slowed down a little in my area. We are just getting a few flurries today. Everyone has been so pre-occupied with it lately, there has been so much.

This has been one heck of a week in my area for snow. All the schools were closed for three days, including the College that I attend. In total when it was all over, we got 177 cm of snow. I mean it snowed all week and it is snowing again today. Another 20 cm expected. My DH and I had been invited to the "Hollow Cupboard" for dinner last night, and the way the weather was looking all week, I thought there may be a chance we would have to cancel. We had been looking forward to it, so a cancellation would have been a huge disappointment. It ended up that yesterday was the only day with no snow in the forecast, so yesterday afternoon we headed up to Shelburne which is a two hour drive north east of us. If you don't know about the "Hollow Cupboard", it is an online business owned by Henry and Sandie who sell the most gorgeous Primitive Smalls and Antiques on their website. We had never met Henry and Sandie until last night. Sandie hired me to manage her website a couple of months ago which is a real pleasure because I just love the things they offer up for sale. Take a peak and check it out for yourself.
We had an amazing time and the dinner was fabulous! Henry barbecued some ribs, which were the best we had ever tasted, and Sandie made an amazing Caesar salad and a rice dish. For desert there was a delicious homemade lemon/poppy seed cake.
There was so much to talk about, the time just flew by, but we had to leave and head for home. We had a two hour drive ahead of us and all of our critters were waiting. We had really enjoying meeting our new friends, Henry and Sandie and all of their critters too. Sandie sent me home with a bag of goodies which included some of her great smelling tart melts. Below are some pictures that Sandie took of our visit.
