First snow!

The 1st of December brought with it the 1st snow, not a lot but just enough to build this lovely bucket head couple in the garden. As I went slipping and sliding down the path it crossed my mind that it would have been a good time to have my camera but being more of an 'after the event' type I'm afraid you'll just have to be content with the snowys. Swiss chalet scenes will follow later in the season, I promise!

Below is my current top purchase! I can't tell you how long I've been looking for this pointing hand stamp and I'm feeling quite virtuous as I was in a shop in Zurich that I shouldn't have been in (on account of the prices) and low and behold they had Cavallini stamps AND they were 20 francs cheaper than everywhere else!! I took this as a sign and bought the box. I now plan to stamp post-it notes for my children, and write stuff like hang me up (jacket) and yes, I mean you!

Your snow couple look like they are studded with currants (I haven't eaten lunch yet, so maybe that's why I am thinking "food". ha!) !

So those are Cavallini stamps? They look vintage. How wonderful! And good for you in getting them at a bargain price!
