Twice in one week!

November 15, 2014

I realized today while seeing Lysa (ALSO twice in the same week! AWESOME!) that Faturday makes us very productive. By 1:30 this afternoon, we had already eaten breakfast, gone to Ladner, voted in the local civic election, visited Cynthia and Norm (shown above) at the cutest little craft fair in South Surrey. If you’re able […]

November 14, 2014

…doesn’t stay at quilt guild. I just won’t let it. What did the one quilt guild person say to the other quilt guild person? “What a nice knitting bag you made!” Really? A knitting bag? I guess it could be. However THIS is what it’s really for:

It’s fun fur!

November 13, 2014

SO. MUCH. SHOPPING these days. My gosh. The last couple of days I’ve been thinking about painting some furniture for our place – just to spice things up a bit. We tend to only have wooden things and it’s a little bit boring. Off and on today, I was thinking about finding a small piece […]

Waiting for dinner

November 11, 2014

Man. You’d think we never feed this guy. For reasons I don’t understand, Oscar has been giving me this look the last few days. Intently. He’s very patient and very persistent. He. Wants. His. Dinner. What else could it be? I’ve got nothing else to go on with him. He’s bossy and into food these […]

A day of rest

November 9, 2014

The backyard did not look like this when Mom arrived, that’s for sure. I was ignoring the leaves and other items that had blown in by keeping the curtains shut in the livingroom. Happily, my mom assured me that she loves to help clean up, so we put on our shoes and took care of […]

Bellis Fair was full of treasures for us all. Many shirts were had today – Christmas shirts and sweaters, a Sasquatch riding a penny-farthing shirt and fancy, rayon, dress shirts for my sister. So many shirts. PLEASE NOTE: The Christmas sweaters for the annual Browne Family Christmas card have been secured. BOY HOWDY! We also […]

Tintype me!

Yes! Another portrait for my tintype collection. And day 4 of the black and white challenge. DONE! My crafty pal, Denise, and I had a delicious lunch at the Baghdad Cafe and had a good chat. Lovely. I had two great lunches this week. I was spoiled for company and lunches this week. And tintypes! […]

Safety First

November 5, 2014

I took this photo tonight before it started raining. We have been warned! Mega rainfall warning in effect tonight – up to 70 mm. 2.75 inches of rain. Time to batten down the hatches. I like this photo because it looks like the girl with the phone is in perilous danger, but she’s fine. She […]

Another one for the collection

November 5, 2014

I had lunch today with my buddy and owner of Loyal Coalition Apparel. I know! Fancy me! We ate a fabulous lunch at Finches Tea-house (House Salad with Prosciutto. Always good.). I was HOPING she was wearing one of her beanies today, because she looks excellent in a beanie and I am lacking in portraits […]
