Today my Dad arrived. He had been in Banff for a convention on the weekend. First order of business....shopping in Okotoks at The Red Barn! It has a collection of antiques/vintage/rusty bits and new giftware. It was busy there today as Santa was set up for pictures with kids and their families! Here are some of my finds:
The springs are nice and big and rusty. I'll be checking out Pinterest for ideas on how to use them for the holidays although I have a couple of ideas in my head already! The lamp is older and is even filled with fuel ready to go! Yikes!! That may get emptied soon.
The fall decor will come down this week and I'll start to put up winter stuff but Christmas will wait until the first week of December......maybe! I'll likely get all the boxes out and figure I may as well git 'er done!!! But it is a slow process....it takes time, and although every year I say I'm going to pare it down, it never seems to happen.
Tomorrow Dad leaves for a week in Edmonton and it's Son2s 24th birthday! He may or may not be home tomorrow....probably Tuesday, so we can celebrate then!
