The Best Beach House

I have sifted and perused through, dare I say, thousands of shelter magazines. I've surfed in and out of tens of thousands of online home design albums and blogs. I have bought decorating books and brought home arm-breaking piles of home hardcovers from the local library. But until today, I hadn't truly discovered; excavated my true authentic house. The one that just says 'that's me'. This is 'me'. It wouldn't matter if I had little or abundant money, this would be the house for me. Someday when you come to one of my cultural potlucks, this will be the home (kind) you will walk into. (click on the photos to see all the lovely, perfect-imperfect details) I won't bore you with the reasons why because the images completely say it all. What is your authentic house and have you found it yet?

The Long Long Spring Thaw

It is with great pride and excessive politeness that I ask you for forgiveness yet again for discussing the weather. I am Canadian after all.  We chat about this topic every 15 minutes every day of the week. The sulk continues all year.  Too humid. Too freezing. Too grey. Too windy. Too foggy. One could never state that Canada's weather is predictable and boring. Not like, say, the Middle East.

The citizens of this expansive, geographical wonder deserves an Olympic medal for remaining (generally) happy with all the temperatures and conditions that are literally thrown at us by Mother Nature.  Those skilled hockey teams and figure skaters have nothing on us!  We have mastered the ever changing forecast.

It is Spring. Apparently. I have made a promise. As long as it is not a white out blizzard then I am going to embrace what's happening outside wholeheartedly.  Openly. With gratitude. No complaining!

April. You aren't fooling us!  Dammit all though. Would you mind sending warm sunshine?
