The miata convertible is still sleeping under its blanket, tucked away in my garage. Dear Mr. Highway man hurry up and get the gravel off the roads so I can bring her out! Manny says today might be the day. The sun is shining, but a cold blast of wind in my face is not what I am wishing for! Soon though, I will say hello to her shiny red paint and together we will cruise! Soon baby. Soon!

Pictures To Share In The Hope Of Spring!
The grocery store near my house was selling this purple heather like plant called "Campanula Get Mee."I proceeded to "get mee" home with it, in order to assist in recovering from a mild case of "cabin fever." Upon reading the tag I further discovered that when the ground thaws this plant can be tucked into the great outdoors for perennial flowering into summer. Let's hope!
Snow White tulips are appreciated more than the real thing at the moment! For all my neighbors who remembered to plant their daffodils and tulips last fall before the snow...I will enjoy your garden views!
Here I am...finally!
I have been rummaging through the neighborhood thrift store for special finds. Sometimes I am lucky. I am hoping to finally pull together my 30 year old home in Okotoks, Alberta. My old "antique dealer" days have once again sprouted up since searching for treasure to decorate my home. I think I may save a few trinkets for those of you that might enjoy them in the future so stay tuned!
"Manny" my husband thinks I am about to write a serious book about my life growing up in the north country. Maybe someday, but for now I have some pictures of spring decor to share. I hope you enjoy the shots as well as I enjoyed taking them. Manny's Christmas camera to me is about to get a workout!
This fairy vase was a find in a shop on the coast of Oregon during a summer visit with my mom. The quaint town of Seaside is a favorite vacation spot of mine. This "little girl" had a defect on her foot which reminded me of a barefoot accident I once had collecting snails on the back snye around the Island of Ft. Simpson, North West Territories where I grew up. Maybe I will end up writing about the north after all!
I love it when the roses open up and share their rich sultry scent!
Okay, I will confess: I have about 5 more bags of the stuff growing under my desk at work. Tomorrow I will find some unsuspecting victim to unleash this labour of love on!
