It’s crazy how, after a week of -40c weather, -10c feels so summery! “You know you’re Canadian when…”
I’m looking through Etsy today, trying to decide about a custom buckle from Fosterweld, browsing Gift Guides (and lusting over this summer floral picture by Get The Picture) and getting in the Christmas mood!
A few more things I need to do to get into the Christmas mood:
- Watch Love Actually
- Put on the Xmas tunes and wrap gifts
- Drink some mint hot chocolate
- Bake goodies!
Tonight my little sister is coming to sleep over. She’s 15 and I love it when she sleeps over and we can have a Girls Night. Chick flicks here we come!

Sometimes people make “cute” look so effortless! Jeeze…
Well peeps, it’s -40c here and ice fog is surrounding my work place so thickly, you can’t see anything. Why we are still open is beyond me. Seriously. What farmer in his right mind is going to be needing tractor parts in weather like this??
I should have phoned in and said my truck wouldn’t start. Dangit. Why didn’t I think of this earlier?
I’ll have new pictures of the kitchen this evening. You wouldn’t believe what we (aka: Hubby) has accomplished! I just about pee my pants every time I walk into the kitchen. I can’t believe it’s really mine, really just about finished and really so amazing. Wow. I seriously feel SO blessed!

Christmas isn’t even here yet and already I’m thinking of January birthday gifts! I just received this quilt in the mail (it only took a week!) for my Mom’s birthday. The three oldest kids in the fam are going in on buying it for her and we just know she’s going to die when she sees it!

And I’m asking for:
Fosterweld Belt (to go with my awesome belt buckle from last year!)
Napkins for my kitchen table when the kitchen is finally finished. This colour would be perrrrfect.
The spare room needs a color scheme, this might be it…LOVE this quilt!!

I’ve been Christmas shopping on Etsy! I’m so proud of myself for starting shopping already! I have some fun DVD’s for the younger siblings, a necklace, this super cute hat, and the odd toy for the nieces. I’m so ahead of the game…and that’s very unusual for me.
I love buying gifts that actually mean something to the recipients, but usually I’m so late in buying the gift it turns into a game of “What’s left in the stores that they might like”.
I was on Etsy the other day and found this seriously funky hat (they’re so in style right now, I love it!) for one of my younger sisters. Tiss would look so adorable in it, but her personality is more “I’m here but don’t want anyone to notice”, so I’m not sure if she would get good use out of it. But Sally would be able to pull it off too, so it’s a toss-up.
Orrrr….maybe I’ll keep it for myself! Nah, I will give it as a gift, but I’m totally going back to get one for myself!
Visit SoftSpoken for more amazing knitted creations guys! If you’re looking for the girls (actually, there’s some guy stuff in the shop too!) it’s a great stop for fashionable knits.

My gosh people! I’m DYING for one of these quilts. Really, I’m a farm girl at heart. And mix “romantic” in there too, and seeing a quilt brings images of a wine and cheese picnic beside a slow flowing creek, willows flowing their long branches in the clear water. The sun is warm and bright, and the wine is making me sleepy.
Oh. Right, I’m writing a blog entry. Wow, I just got totally lost in that other world…
I was visiting Kid Stuff World, one of my lovely blog loves. Stacey rocks! But one of her blogs caught my attention with it’s beautiful, stunning and completely cozy picture of a quilt. The link lead here: Simplify: Feeling Lucky?
You have to check out her store!

I know I’ve blogged on Which Goose before, but can you blame me for wanting to feature her work again? My fave is this one, perfect for my sisters wedding with these dresses (in sage green with a white sash):
But it’s just not her style. Too bad. Maybe I can cry and get my way. Or show some cleavage. That always works with my husband.

Treasury by Monicaj.
I need to buy some headbands soon. They’re so cute! Oh, and see Mandizzle’s shop? Twice. Twice she’s been on Etsy’s front page Treasury!
Have you seen what Kitty is up to lately?
