When Bill & I were traveling with our business, back in the 1990's, it would be business & pleasure trips, to other countries, looking for products to import into Canada. And those days would open my eyes, to how young our country really is.
In England we would eat off of tables, older than our county of Canada & upon returning, I would take a breath & feel the youth of Canada, as we arrived. We were like a puppy country, in this dog world.
As time has gone on I feel Canada has more a sense of being Canadian proud, more & more red & white flags, are flying now. I have a flag pole on each property, one at the shore, at home & one on the lawn at the cottage.
With Canada's birthday coming in July, I'm going to try to decorate the house in red, white, & maple leafs!
I love the thrill of a find & creating something with it. Thank you Marg!
|The window dressings have been removed & await for the painters to return.|
|The glass railings have been installed around the mezzanine & Rexton is taking in the afternoon sun. lol|
|The view going down the glass railings to the landing, this area is warmed up with the, Vintage Tin, quilted wall hanging.|
|It was to go in Bill's office but there was no wall room. More about his office on a later post, he needs time to unpack.|
For now I'm enjoying seeing the quilt hung up!
|And here is another quilt I'm enjoying seen hung up! Over the River, was once hung at the landing of the old staircase but everything had to move with the floor work & painting, including Namama's chairs!|
This is Tommy's sister, Tommy is the last of the litter, remember Jerry, the one eyed, three legged cat with a heart murmur, he died in 2012? Well those were the three kittens, back in 1999!
|Sweet dreams Tommy. He too only has one working eye, so he does look odd when he sleeps with one eye open! lol|
I hope you have a great weekend, wherever you are! I'm in Canada & it is winter, winter white right now! And in less than 6 months from now it will be July...Canada's 150th birthday.
How are you going to celebrate it? By hanging something wonderful, to greet your guests from your door? Picnics, oh the thought of grass makes me giddy! lol
May health and happiness surround you in every season.
