Christmas Is Coming

" Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat
Please do put a penny in the old man's hat
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do
If you haven't got a ha'penny, then God bless you."

We're starting to get ready for Christmas; today we've almost finished putting up our outdoor lights.  The following pictures are things I've picked up for decorating.

This is a simple look for Christmas I collect birds for on wreaths and garlands.

I collect vintage ornaments for my tree these are some I've found to add to my collection.

These Pyrex nesting bowls are a great look for Christmas. 
They can be like my kitchen Christmas tree.

Where Has The Time Gone

Where did my weekend go, time is coming up short these days for getting things finished.  I know things now will be really busy till after Christmas.

This paperweight is actually clear glass but I thought it looked great with blue foil behind it.  The snowflake on it said buy me.

The first brooch is unsigned but caught my eye the green beads stand out well.
The vintage purse is totally me can't wait to use it when someone takes me out for dinner.
The last brooch is signed, we think it says Coro.

This jar is made by Pyrex it says The Cracker Barrel on it.  I was surprise when I saw it was made by Pyrex.

I also found this Pyrex bowl the pattern is Town and Country.

From The Family Pictures

I took this picture of the milk house at Kilby store in Harrison Mills in British Columbia.

The above collage is of my finds at the store in the past few weeks.
I collect vintage Christmas ornaments and picked this one up at the store.

Remembrance Day Canada November 11th 2012

The following information is about things to do with Remembrance Day.  Some co-workers were nice enough to share some of their family stories of those who served.  In my family neither of my grandfathers served some of my uncles did as far as I know they did make it home.

To those who served and didn't make it home Thank You.

Flying officer Frederick John Manning was a navigator in the R.C.A.F. in World War Two.  He served for three years and after March 28th 1945 was reported missing somewhere overseas in Germany.  His family finally received a letter on June 19th 1952 officially listing him as dead with no known grave.  His name is listed on the memorial at Runnymede, England.

To those who served and made it home Thank You.

The helmet shown above was worn by Private Roy Arnold Gilpin during World War One he was in the battle at Vimy Ridge.  He's the one pictured sitting down the other soldier I have no information on standing next to him.  Private Syden Elvin Burrows pictured with a cane had a leg injury he received during the war.  Both men made it back home after serving their country.

To those who are serving today Thank You.  And may you all make it home safe.

This R.C.A.F. uniform is a 1956 uniform found in an antique store.

The R.C.A.F. hat was found at a local flea market.  The naval hat was found at a local second hand store.

The two above plates are part of the Canada Remembers series by David Craig.
" We Stand On Guard" is the plate with men on it.
" With Glowing Hearts" is the plate with women on it.

An Irish Airman Foresees His Death

I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate,
Those that I guard I do not love;
My country Kiltartan's cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan's poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public men, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.
                                       W.B. Yeats
