We are back! – newsletter

We just released our latest newsletter http://aboutcanada.ca/store.html?news=1&returnNews=67#returnNews

Hello again to all our regular readers and welcome to those that have signed up for a newsletter, only to wonder where it was.

There is always a haitus in the newsletters during the busy summer but this is a record, so my apologies for our absence.

This summer has been more eventful that most in that, at last, we became Canadian citizens. And we opened a Bed And Breakfast at home. (I suppose that one could say that having being welcomed into our new home we are now welcoming folk to ours!)

Anyway. In the light of us now being proudly Canadian I thought that I would concentrate this time on product to reflect that.

The newsletter will then move into the ususal Christmas cycle of every two weeks and give a range of gift ideas. At the bottom of this email I have also given a table of last post dates for Christmas…. I can`t believe we are talking Christmas already, where did the year go?.

Three pieces that are really reflective of new Candian status are:-

These include a range of mountain silhouettes, some of which are functional as coat hooks. In addition I am really pleased that he has developed his own version of the Continental Tree a line of free standing or wall mounted metal art that was incredibly popular, until the artist retired.

It goes without saying that we were really happy to be accepted as citizens. You could go so far as to say that we were dancing for joy. So I thought it would be apt to show you some of our Inuit carved dancing bears.

I had a hard time picking my favourite maple leaf design so I decided to show the 3 runners up. They were:-

  • The porcelain red maple from Lynn Moore.
  • The iredescent Maple Leaves, (She uses real maple leaves that she electroplates for strength.
  • A recycled glas maple trivet leaf from Panabo, function and form.

I mentioned that we had opened a bed and breakfast. Now that the kids have left home the place is too big for us, but it`s nice to have space when they are home. We called it Banff Bear Bed And Breakfast and I have included some images, if you are interested.
