Picnic Baskets

I had fun getting out a few of my picnic baskets

to style, dust off and re-arrange.



A family visit..

I hadn't seen my brother Werner and his wife Dana for

3 years in person

as they live in full time in

Cabo San Lucas.

They were here for a quick overnight visit on there way to Vancouver.

It was a short but sweet visit!

Good thing we are able to connect regularly

with FaceTime.




A good start to August...

The signs says...Cut your Own.

15 stems for $5.00.

Zinnias and Dahlias.

All it takes is a good pair of pruners and a bucket of water

in your car.

Style them when you get home.



3 days away in Nelson..

Longtime friends,

my best thrifting buddy ever,

great food, marvellous drinks,

best sleeping cabin on the lake....

only one question remains,

when can I come back?

Thank you Cindy, Tim and sweet Koda for the love and friendship!

See you in September.



Wine Touring..

When friends come to our Okanagan Valley,

we pack a picnic and go wine touring.

With 135 wineries, the task at hand is where to go.

Our friends Patrick and Steven flew in from Seattle for a few days of fun.

We met them in Panama a few years ago and have

continued our friendship.

It was time for them to see our part of the world.

Wine was sipped, a picnic enjoyed, back roads traveled,

new wineries visited.

We are looking forward to having them return next summer.
