December 1st marks the start of winter for me.
Black ice and whiteouts,
Snowed in and digging out, And ice storms,
The hazards of winter. Get ready. Be prepared.
But fortunately December also marks the month of celebration – Christmas!
When ‘whiteouts’ are beautifully decorated white Christmas trees with ornaments,
‘Snowed in’ is a birch bark inspired decoration for the fireplace mantle.
And ‘ice’ is only found in a bold black ice bucket or whiskey glasses.
The first 3 photos are my snaps taken over the last few winters and the celebration photos were taken this past summer when I attended the PC Home Holiday Preview.
Yup…..Christmas in July! (Actually it was August)
I could not and would not mention Christmas in sweltering August to you but today I officially can.
And next time you are in your local Loblaw’s or Real Canadian Superstore® check out the stunning holiday products that will have you jingling all the way home.
And this year enjoy your HO-HO-HOsting and entertaining!

It looks very pretty as I read this and listen to them outside cutting the lawn. A totally different look here but the stores are very festive.
I can be very patient waiting for any “white” outside, while enjoying all the wintry colours and tastes inside!
