December 2


"Snow"

from the movie "White Christmas"
sung by Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney,
Vera Ellen (voiced-over by Trudy Stevens) and Danny Kaye

Recently, the girlies and I have spent several lovely, quiet afternoons cutting the most beautiful paper snowflakes, which we are using to decorate our main-floor windows. Mother Nature seems to be taking the hint, and I spent a fair bit of time this afternoon shovelling out our drive, and walkways to the front and back doors... I'm all for a White Christmas, but my enthusiasm (and my lower back) will no doubt give out, come January 2nd... If I'm really good, maybe Santa will bring me a shiny red Toro snowblower. (Sadly, folks, this is what it is to be a Canadian... Some gals yearn for diamonds and lingerie. I'd settle for a snowblower and a pair of silk long johns.)

If you and yours would like to try making paper snowflakes, here is a website where you can down-load the most beautiful, lacy patterns:


Enjoy!

My sister makes beautiful paper snowflakes. Last year, we used that clear sticky paper stuff to "laminate" small ones on both sides, and they made really pretty christmas tree ornaments.
