Valentine Decor

Well, have started to get our house a little spruced up for Valentines day.  Peanut and I have been busy with the red paint :)

Here's our 'love' sign at the front door (my feet her hands!)

And our BIG love painting above our couch.  Kitty approved!

Joint Artistry

The Peanut and I have been working in the new studio on a couple of joint projects.

This one we did for a dear friend of ours who is into horses...

This one is still a work in progress for above our couch, just in time for Valentine's day...

Happy New Year 2016 !!!

They say relationships are everything.  The glue the binds us together.  Bringing joy and pain in equal measure.  And it can be hard to navigate the differences.  To be compassionate, forgiving and gentle with each other.  We tend to see the world through the prism of our own reflection, and assume without thinking, that people are just like us.  However this is not the case.  Perspective is everything.  And everyone has their own.  Millions of steps leading us all to the places we are now, providing us all different points of view of this world.  And I must say, I am very happy where my steps have led me, and very proud of where I am, and of the steps I took to get here.  I am also proud and grateful to have all of you in my corner.  So from Our Little Family to Yours, Happy New Years and may 2016 be filled with Joy and Hope.

A Christmas House Tour

The Peanut and I LOVE to decorate for the holidays.  And we love to have people over and share our space, food and enjoy each other's company.  We didn't get to do as much baking as we had wanted to, with our well situation earlier... setting our time frames on everything well back... but we did get to deck our halls with boughs of some Christmas awesomeness :)

Here's a little look... 

Our Front porch...

My favourite lil sign made by the Peanut :)

Charlie still holding our keys (next to Sparky) but they are both sporting Santa hats!!

One of my fave pictures done by the Peanut in JK

An old letterpress drawer given to me by a dear friend.  Peanut and I spelled some words with scrabble tiles that hold meaning to us...

 A cute little beetle bug decoration we made..

My niece made this simple yet elegant ornament for me.

A little bit of hung bling in my bedroom...

The entrance way table (gotta love Christmas gnomes and my diffuser)

Yup, That's an old cheese grater - great luminary at night.  
Candle underneath casts neat glimmery lights

Here's my living room.  Love the tall tree the Peanut picked out on our annual Christmas tree hunt.  Love how it goes right through the rafters.  
Should have seen my hanging the star from the rafters, lol !!

More Gnomes.  

The more, the merrier - we say!!

I love these gorgeous trees I found.  
And on the bottom is a dollar store grouping :)

 A few more little touches...

Wreath we made on door to Garage.

Sitting on Kitchen counter...

Kitchen window... my little sis made for me a while back...

A homemade stocking hung on the spiral staircase...

In the bathroom...

A few windows...

Wishing you all the very best this Holiday Season...

Lest We Forget...

Today after my minute of silence, I would like to share with you a picture the Peanut made.

And here is a poem from a fellow classmate, Kent Bailey written when he was in grade seven...

The Colours of War

Remember the young men,
Proud and Strong,
Sacrificing their youth
For the country they loved.
Colour them valiant.

Remember the families,
Patient and caring,
Waiting in vain
For a loved one's return.
Colour them broken.

Remember the poppies,
Bathed in red,
Standing serenely
By each grave.
Colour them solemn.

Remember the crosses,
Painted white,
Lonely sentinels, all in a row.
Think of the brave lying beneath.
Colour them silent.

Remember the sacrifice,
Costly and sad.
Think of the future, honour the past.
Peace is still fragile.
Colour it hope.

Remember the children,
Innocent and loved.
Our gift is tomorrow,
The future is theirs.
Colour them free.
