An Island Winter Drive

By // No comments:


                                                                                    Hello everyone,

                                                                         I hope you had a great weekend.
                                                                       
                                                                         It is pretty here on the Island now
                                                                         with some fresh snow and some
                                                                         sunny breaks so we decided to
                                                                         check out the North Shore.



    Covehead Harbour Lighthouse looks
pretty with the snow.


Taken from a different perpective

                                                        I confess I had no desire to go for a
                                                        dip but in summer it is a beautiful
                                                        place to enjoy a swim.
                                                                        This red fox had no trouble
                                                                         posing for me.

Cows enjoying a winter day.
I always love this farm in winter
or summer.


                 Dalvey by the Sea is only open for guests in
                    summer but it is beautiful in the winter as well.
            Some of you probably remember this hotel
      from the movie Anne of Green Gables.

          Hope you enjoyed a short winter drive
with me.

Take care,
Carolyn

All the Pretty Little Teacups

By // No comments:



       Hello everyone!

    I can't believe the week has
   slipped by already.
Maybe, I have been having
too much fun playing with
my camera!


I decided to tidy up my teacup
collection.......well one cupboard
full anyway and thought you
might like to see some photos
of them. I think a lot of us are
teacup collectors.


Anyway, I have a lot of pretty teacups
but today's collection is mostly
in shades of pink.




The exception to my pink
theme of the day.




Dainty rosebuds





Hope you enjoyed seeing some of
my pretty little teacups.
Someday, soon I will organize all
my teapots and share those with
you as well.

       Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

SCOTT'S ANTIQUE MARKET

By // No comments:




Thank you for all the love about my project:) I have more to show you but  I think I'm going to interrupt all this "before and after" so I can show you what I saw at Scott's last week!  


I can't get there as much as I would like but I have a bedroom install tomorrow and I needed a few things for the "gob" of bookcases this room has.

Here are the fabrics.....



The first thing I needed was a rug and I was lucky to stumble across this beauty......

This is a huge bedroom and there is a sitting area with a sofa and 2 chairs.  We were going to do patterned wall to wall [see above] but we needed something that was good for pets so that changed to a solid**.  This will help to define the seating area now!

**Design is not all about beauty.  Function plays a huge part of pulling a room together.

I picked up this one for the master bath....


Here are a few other ones I saw....



The good thing is that most of the vendors are local so if a rug doesn't workout out they will exchange.  A big advantage!

I picked up a few pretty beads in the right colors....


And I saw this mirror that I want to use over the dresser below......It's kind of like art and mirror all in one!  The colors are perfect!

I'm excited to see this one come together....here is the pretty bedding...the gorgeous Matouk duvet on the left.



Love this vendor with all of this blue and white!  


Saw this great fireplace mantel

And you know I can't resist an old bench.....wish I had a space for this in my house somewhere.

There were 2 of these painted dressers....sold....somebody scored!

Pink is still going strong everywhere!

Is copper still a thing?

I picked up this necklace which had my name on it....agree?

Well....I wrote this on Tuesday [trying to be so organized] and surprise Atlanta has a snow storm Wednesday night!



Normally it would have melted in a day but we were having temps like we lived in Antarctica so I had to cancel my Thursday installation....which will now happen on Saturday!

Before I leave.....I want to share this art with you.  Photographer Owen Masterson has created these block art modern sculptures and I am smitten!



Go to om.woodart  on Instagram to see more!

And....it is no secret that I don't cook....no really.  I always say my kitchen is just for resale.

Since it's January I have been really cutting back the calories which includes libations :( and food.  I have been trolling the grocery store like it's my job looking for quick + low calorie solutions.


I picked up this little number and it wasn't bad.  My thought after I ate the first one was the next time I will add a little ground turkey to it.....although that would involve cooking.... so prob won't happen.  Beware.....it is spicy!

Alrighty then....kisses to all of you!

A Winter White Tea

By // No comments:



        Hello everyone!


     We woke up this morning to a winter
wonderland!

       We got about  20 cm. of snow with no
wind so the trees are laden.


It is a good day to enjoy a
winter white tea.





We can see the beautiful winter
outdoors as we enjoy our tea.


Enjoy a sugar cookie!

                                                                   This tea set was  a thrift
                                                                    find recently.


Our tea today is a 
Green Tea
Kombucha

The view out the window




                                             The beauty of a winter white world.
                                                   
                                                        Wishing you a beautiful day!
