I just love the blue on these Christmas trees, decorated at the Winnipeg Airport.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas,
a Happy Holiday Season,
and the Best in the New Year!
Keyser (front) and Basil show off their holiday spirit with their Christmas ties. Keyser’s expression however, is unimpressed. He’s so funny. They look sweet anyway!
Thanks to our groomer, Vada Club K9, in Winnipeg for the awesome accessories. I love this grooming shop. They take their time, give the dogs breaks when they need, are reasonably priced and my dogs always look and smell great when we leave.
Today is my third, and final, post about Dalnavert, an authentic Victorian era house museum in downtown Winnipeg.
In my first post I talked about our experience with a shadow puppet show of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. My second post showcased the formal Christmas dinner. Today, I wanted to share some photos I took in the house in general.
Every single item in the house is authentic to 1895, when the Sir Hugh McDonald family lived in the home.

A bedroom. I love those boots!
At one time the walls were whitewashed. When the renovations were planned to turn the home back to its original Victorian state, everything had to be as it was in 1895 — right down to the wallpaper, which they were able to gather samples of here and there from each room. Then they found the original wallpaper makers in Europe and it was replicated and re-hung. The attention to detail is outstanding.
I highly recommend you check out Dalnavert if you have the opportunity.
Dalnavert is a Victorian house museum in Winnipeg, that has been restored to it’s original 1895 grandeur when Sir Hugh McDonald and his family lived in the home. Sir Hugh was the son of Sir John A. McDonald, Canada’s first Prime Minister.
A feast for sure!
This is my second post about Dalnavert, see also my post about the reading of Charles Dicken’s, A Christmas Carol.
Carnaval is a Brazilian BBQ restaurant in Winnipeg. It appears to be expensive, but for the experience you get – it’s not!
Carnaval was a fun experience that we enjoyed with friends! If you’re willing to pay a little extra for a truly exceptional experience – I highly recommend!
