The trees along the roadside were heavy laden with snow , a fresh snowfall the night before just perfect for Santa and his reindeer. The roads were a little tricky on the way to our destination so we were extra glad we had put snowtires on our vehicle. As we were driving along the scene reminded me of one in a favorite movie of mine , Dr. Zhivago , remember when they were heading across the open fields with snow laden trees and the house in the distance that looked more like an ice castle . Well this didn't quite measure up to that but it was so beautiful and this next photo was on our way home the next day so the road conditions improved greatly .
This is coming down Kelly's Mountain in Cape Breton , a true Christmas card scene .
Lots of fresh snow to make for a peaceful winter scene , so white and pure .
We enjoyed the company of fourteen for dinner and had lots of food for an army with pot luck being our choice this year due to it being easier to deal with in mom's apartment . The atmosphere was one of joy to be all together for this special day but kind of sad too as we were missing our favorite storyteller my amazing Dad , I guess he was telling stories to the angels this year , we sure do miss you Dad .
I want to share my little Christmas postcard collection I received this year , I love them all and will treasure them always .
Guess what ,I won a fabulous giveaway on Henry Glass blog , my name was chosen for day two in his week long giveaway after the orginial winner did not contact them , lucky me and I feel sorry for the person who lost out on this wonderful gift . What did I win ? Well fourteen halfyard prints in the Weekend Retreat line by Henry Glass , they are so pretty !
I know I will have lots of fun with this great collection , they would make a fabulous boys quilt ! Thanks so much to Henry Glass . for this great win , I really appreciate it .
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to getting back into the routine again . I know I am looking forward to getting behind my sewing machine again , it has been a while and I am having withdrawals. Sorry I have not been around to visit many blogs lately but hope to catch up soon . Our son and his family arrived safely last night so I know you will understand if I go missing again for a while .
