Just today I put away the items in the old cutlery tray. They speak of winter and a bit of Christmas and since it's mid-January the Christmas had to go.
This half-moon milk glass plate has a sweet winter scene painted on it with a pretty sunset or sunrise sky on the horizon. I don't know anything about this sweet plate other than it was my mother's.
It could have been a fancy tray to put fish bones on that had outlived it's purpose and became a work of art.
Whatever it's prior use, I think it is very pretty with it's pierced edge. There are no markings on the back.
This is an oil painting that I have hanging in the dining room. When the afternoon sunshines in this painting just glows in all it's winter beauty.
And, guess what?
It's snowing again today.
I'm not going to complain as we haven't had any snow since December 29. It's been cold but sunny the past 2 weeks or so except for the January thaw that we had last weekend when it was mild and foggy. It was +8 celsius on Monday!
Poor Frosty lost so much weight (from the fog and warmer air) that his hat and scarf were just hanging on him! The basket hat was just nicely sitting on his head and the ribbon scarf was tight around his neck. If only I could lose weight that fast!
So it's winter again here which is good for our winter tourism for the snowmobilers and skiers. These outdoor recreation sports draw a lot of visitors to our province in winter.
There are also a few winter festivals coming up that will appreciate the fresh snow.
I want to thank you all for your kind comments on my recent posts. I appreciate each one of you.
