Fairytale in the city

April 7th, 2015

I love this mural located near the intersection of Bloor and Dundas West here in Toronto. Such a great little neighbourhood and very close to High Park.



So cute! Even the sign for the local convienence store is so much better with this fairy seemingly perched on top. 

 And meanwhile on a sandwich board in a neighbourhood not-so far far away......

This photo of an abandoned farmhouse was taken several years ago. It is just off the highway near Shelburne, Ontario, and I have had my eye on it for years. I do not have a more recent photo, but believe it or not, the house still stands! The old house is aging well despite its many years of neglect. She must have a really good foundation. I will be sad on the day that I pass-by her and she will have inevitably fallen to the ground .... to be reclaimed by nature.

A little bit of the forest on my table

March 31st, 2015

A snapshot of my winter forest bouquet taken today .... almost four months since I first shared it ...... 

 and in early December the same forest bouquet in a mason jar ...... 

 I fancy myself a green thumb, a plant healer, or necromancer if you will .... and even I am suprised at the longevity with only minor trimming here and there of this bouquet. And it still maintains such a lovely, soothing smell of the woods.........

Life Is The Beach So Be A Good Sport

March 27th, 2015

This week's photo hunt theme was a bit of a challenge for me as I'm not really into "traditional" sports, either as a spectator or as a participant. Our family has a long history of competitive fencing, so I do love swords. I love MMA (mixed martial arts) and am a big supporter of women fighters. Hiking, swimming, geocaching, and yoga are among my current sporty activities. Since its been a very long cold winter I decided I'd go with some fun Summer sportiness to remind me of good times ahead. All of these pics were taken last year in July during our annual girls only vacation at Sauble Beach.

Paddle boarding at Sauble Beach
This looks kinda scary, but fun too and would be a great workout trying to keep steady
My fave sunset, and boating on Lake Huron
