Christmas Vignettes

                                                                       Hello everyone,
                                How are you? It has turned cold and rather wintry here ~ we have a
                               little dusting of snow on the ground now. I am hoping we soon get
                               more,just enough to give us in the Christmas spirit.
                                          I have a few delicate touches of Christmas to share with you.

                                     I love this pretty plate but it is not a color I find here often.

                                          The angel wings are so cute with the silver acorn both from
                              Timeworn Treasures and Antiques and by the way there is a
                              Christmas open house there today from 2 -8 p.m.

                               I love my red and white transferware all year but especially at Christmas.

             So,just a few delicate touches of Christmas for you today.

                        In local news my Country Christmas books are now for sale at

                                                            Time Worn Treasures and Antiques
                                                            Showcase Gift Shop at the Confederation Gift Shop
                                                                                   and now
                                                                       Emmett & Ellie's

                      I am also excited that a new shop in Calgary plans to carry them also!

                      Tomorrow at 5 pm I will draw for the giveaway of my book Country Christmas
                      and will announce the lucky winner soon after.  ~ good luck! It is not to late to
                       sign up if you would like too.

                       Today I am joining Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage and
                       My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday.

                                                                                Enjoy your day!

I'm loving your soft and pretty Christmas vignettes. I'd be interested in knowing the name and address of the shop in Calgary. Our daughter lives there now and It would be fun to visit the shop on one of our trips. Could you please email me the info? Thanks so much. Enjoy the snow on the ground there. It must be pretty looking.

Dear Carolyn,
oh yes, it is so wonderful looking forward to the christmas time!
Thanks for your pretty vignettes! Especially I love the feathern angel wings!
The blue color of your plate you can find actually by Burleigh: "Blue Asiatic Pheasant", "Burgess Chintz" and "Blue Felicity" have approximately the same tint.
Sunny Greetings, Siret

What a lovely post today. Thank you for the vignettes. You've inspired me to finish my decorating now! We have lots of snow now here in Alberta and they've just issued a heavy snowfall warning, so another wave is on it's way! Thankful we get to stay home and be cosy.

Hello Carolyn, What an elegant place your have here, just lovely. I believe I saw your home on the cottage of the month blog, and marked one of the pages to duplicate the roof-line on your charming house addition. My Grandfather came from Prince Edward Island; what a wonderful place to dwell. Please add me to your drawing, I would love to have this book. It is a coincidence, I too am having a drawing for one of my books this week, but it is a different kind of book.

Your images are so soft, and lovely.
What a treat to visit here.

The Christmas vignettes are charming too.
