Glad Tidings

Yesterday, we went for a drive to visit one of my favourite spots at any time of the year, but particularly now, as the Christmas season is approaching.  Our destination was the Christmas shop, called Glad Tidings.
The location is breath-taking.  The scenery is beautiful in any weather, but really spectacular on a sunny afternoon.

The shop is actually located in the owner's house and she always seems to be there offering a warm welcome and a cup of hot apple cider.  We've been a few times now and she remembers us.
The three bears are seen climbing a telegraph pole in her garden.
And look who we came across on his way down the chimney! 
I did make some purchases, but I'm going to save them for a little while, until such time as I can unpack them and put them on display for Christmas.

  1. You are lucky to have such a nice-looking shop! Going somewhere like that really does put you in the mood for Christmas (just as well as it's only 35 days to go - eep!) It's also really nice (and rare) to find a shop-keeper who recognises you. It seems that Nova Scotia has a really small-town vibe to it, which is really nice!

    Best wishes,
