Snow and Glow – Build Glowing Creatures in your Backyard Snow

I found this reposted by a friend on Twitter. I think its a great idea, very cute, but quite the surprise for all the neighbours (for a day). Little aliens in the snow, with glowing eyes. You could add details, like sticks in the sides as arms, maybe antennae at the top of the head. But, just plain works too.

Did you Know About Milk Tokens?

Found at an Etsy shop with this information:

From the late 19th century through the 1960s and 1970s, dairy distributors of Canada issued tokens as monetary substitutes for convenient home delivery. They also served as advertising.

Kemptville, I think, is now part of Barrie, Ontario. So a bit more local history for Ontario. I didn’t know there were tokens like this. But, I do remember milk still being delivered when I was a kid living in what is now the eastern edge of Scarborough, Ontario. It used to be Port Union, but not known by the name of the original town any more.

Garden Roses by Jill Louise Campbell

My favourite are the misty roses. I especially like the colours. But, at this time in my life, I don’t have anywhere to hang it. So it seems a waste to buy one of her limited edition prints. I can make it desktop wallpaper for my computer and enjoy it that way.  See more from the artist, Jill Louise Campbell, from Salt Springs Island, BC, Canada.
