Colour in my life...

My love for colour is well known.

I don't own one article of clothing that is black.

My colour palette is mostly pinks, turquoise mixed in with

some white and beige.

I am the happiest using and wearing lots of colours.



My happy little girl...

New photos of my happy little girl.

When we FaceTime, she barely sits still.

The energy she has is amazing, the happiness she gives is heartfelt.

I adore her playfulness.




It's definitely fall here..

Back from Vancouver Island..it was great seeing our

friends and seeing family.

The seasons changing, our first frost here today.

Cooler morning, rainy days, shorter days and cooler nights.

The countdown to our holiday is only

a couple of weeks away.

Here are a few photos,

love the mist on the lakes on our drive down.

Countdown to our holiday in Thailand!
Celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary today!

Jim enjoying our walk and celebrating his birthday

on Oct 6.

It sure is a very good life and I am very very grateful.




This past week.....

We have enjoyed having our friends visiting from Vancouver Island.

We travel to the Island tomorrow morning to stay with them and see

Jim's cousin Wayne and Jo-Ann.

Enjoying my visit last week with

Claire, Jeremy and Julie.

Celebrating Jeremy's 43rd birthday!

(How is it possible that those years have passed so quickly?)

Remembering my wonderful Mother.

It seems to me that 16 years seems like such a long

time to be without the wisdom and love

of this kind and loving women.




Fall is here..

It's been a busy but totally wonderful week!

Nelson, West Kelowna, Port Coquitlam.

I am in Port Coquitlam enjoying one of my last weekends with

Jeremy, Julie and Claire before we had off to Thailand.

It's a ProDay today and Claire and I will be crafting and having fun!

I imagine I will have lots of new photos to share!



It seems fall is here...

Cooler tempetures,

rain, leaves falling, grapes being picked,

I think we can say with a degree of confidence that fall is on its way.

It's a beautiful time of the year here in the Okanagan.

September is my favourite month.

My kind and loving mother was born in September 11 - 1924

she died in September 2000.

My son Jeremy is a September baby as well

6 family members have September birthdays.

I was lucky enough to be born 2 days after my mom's

25th birthday on September 13.

So yes, September remains my favourite month of the year.

And as my dear friends know,

I celebrate it all month long!

These wonderful birch paintings were painted
by my talented sister
Caroline Kelly.
One of the loves of my life,
my son Jeremy!



Claire in Grade 1

Claire's first two days of school got off to a

rockystart as she was sick.

Maybe a bit of stress, but mostly a cold.

She is now back enjoying her class and new found friends.

Hard to believe how tall she has grown in a year!



Busy happy Faire...

It was such a fun and busy time at the

Kootenay Chicks Vintage Faire.

Collecting all year paid off.

Not only with all the fun Cindy and I had collecting Pyrex,

as well as all the other "vintage" items we collect,

but all the "stylin" we did to make

our booth look great.

Here are just a few photos of our terrific weekend.

We could have never done it all by ourselves

Cindy and I are the collecting team,

she also enlisted Tim, Darlene, Larry

and I enlisted Jim to help out.

Our thanks to them all.

We have already begun to collect for next year!

Thanks for everything Cindy!
