To compliment our boxed Viking Ship we made this Boxed Viking Warrior in the spring of 2013.
For the past 3 weekends we have had a big dump of snow, with melting and street snow removal in between.
We did manage to put up our Christmas lights on our home and the Colorado Green Spruce tree in our front yard during a few days of much warmer weather after the first 2 weekends of winter storms.
This weekend, November 16 we were once again hit with another winter blast, except this snow storm’s snow was lighter, with less moisture, coupled with high winds, whiteout conditions and much colder temperatures. Our winter wonderland is no doubt here to stay till next April 2014.
For those of you from around the world who view our website and Facebook enjoy our outdoor festive tree.

In May of 2013 we were asked by a long time Danish friends if we could come up with a Viking Ship. They had seen our Boxed Alberta Rose, Maple Leaf, Great Horned Owl and Rainbow Heart and wondered if we could do the same with a Viking Ship and also a Viking Warrior. Our friends have used them for Danish fundraising. Just west of Innisfail at Dixon Alberta is the Danish Canadian National Museum & Gardens. One should visit this wonderful Museum when in the area. Not far from Dixon lies Historic Markerville with it’s Historic Markerville Creamery Museum, Historic Fensala Hall, Historic Markerville Lutheran Church and the Historic Tindastoll Cemetery, all of these Markerville sites are operated by The Stephan G Stephansson Icelandic Society. Also close by is the Provincial Historic Site of the home of Stephan G. Stephansson.
