Tangle Refresher 35

Tangle Refresher!

Happy long weekend, North Americans!

Here in the US of A it’s Columbus Day weekend and in Canada, my no-longer-home but native land, it’s time to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends. So here’s wishing Happy Thanksgiving to everyone north of the 49th parallel and everywhere Canadians are celebrating their blessings on this wonderful special occasion.

Last year Anje from British Columbia sent a beautiful Thanskgiving card she tangled using her own photograph of a collection of Fall gourds and squashes. I thought since we’re visiting Buried Treasure you might enjoy applying Anje’s idea to your seasonal card-giving this year, so visit the link for more details. You’ll also find a link on that page to my Mom’s recipe for Canadian Butter Tarts … “the quintessential Canadian delicacy”. Enjoy!

Aside: I can’t resist this musical recommendation for a Canadian artist since I’ve just mentioned the 49th parallel. If you haven’t heard k.d. lang’s Hymns of the 49th Parallel, check it out. She covers songs from some of Canada’s most recognized recording artists, including Leonard Cohen‘s Hallelujah. (Gives me goosebumps just writing about it. This dates me, but we still have his first album on vinyl.)  And of course, as always, this songbird is superb.
