This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.

While other parts of the world are preparing for winter, we are enjoying a warm Spring, flowers everywhere, parrots everywhere and when it stops raining, people everywhere. 
Spring, it is good to see you !

Paint it White

Browsing through the online real estate websites, I came across a few old homes that were in need of something. 
What ?
White paint.

People paint their walls all sorts of colours, sometimes with great results.
Sometimes it is enough to set off a migraine or at the least, make a person run outside into the daylight.

When we finally get our home sold and make our move back to North America, we are going to be house-hunting. 
But until then, I do it online. is a wonderful website for people like us.

I have a new mantra ..
White paint, strip the floors, polish them, strip the kitchen, white ! white! white!

That Time of Year

These images are brought to you by Autumn

Monday, October 22, 2012


My favourite time of year is Autumn. 
The air has its own Autumnal scent, the chill after months of heat, the silence after the hum of air conditioners for months. 
The new ideas for meals , the ambition to bake some apple pies or make a big pot of soup.
Buying new winter clothes.

Admiring your new winter boots.
Searching for and finding a beautiful scarf to keep your neck warm through the cold months.
A fire in the fireplace. 
Apple picking.

Leaves falling.
Sipping hot chocolate instead of iced tea.
Enjoy ~

Now close the windows and hush all the fields:
If the trees must, let them silently toss;
No bird is singing now, and if there is,
Be it my loss.

Somewhere it is Autumn

                                                       Somewhere it is Spring

Wherever you are, I hope your day is full of sunshine and contentment.

"Catherine the Great and the Preobrazhensky Life Guards could spend the night on this bed and it wouldn’t collapse. And in the morning you could say, “How’d ya sleep, fellas?” and they’d pound their Wheaties bowls on the table and holler, “замечательная кровать!!” (“Wonderful bed!!”)"

The Breakup Bed

You have to read this article.
Nothing like a funny story about buying a bed to start the day out right.

Thank you, New York Times, for the laughs.

The Bedroom

I love my bedroom. 
It is serene and quiet and my favorite chandelier hangs in the bedroom. 
We only sleep in the bedroom, there is no television. 
I have rooms for reading and rooms for sleeping and rooms for television. 
I have kept it fairly monochromatic, but looking at photos of bedrooms has me Thinking ..
This room is so peaceful and quiet looking, the bed is so inviting.
This wallpaper ... do I love it or not ?

Now this wallpaper I love .. will it convince my husband that wallpaper can be a good thing?
Maybe I should show my husband this room first, then the others will appeal to him more ..
Can you imagine trying to fall asleep in this room ? With predator birds watching over you .. waiting to swoop down ...
I have to give this more thought. I was also considering putting mirrors on the wall facing the bed. 
But what if I wake in the night and see myself ? 
Will I scream and tell my husband there is an intruder, obviously an insane person from the look of her ?
I have to give this more thought .. I need to sleep on it .
