Happy New Year! For Christmas I went to the Caymen Islands and went from -31 Celsius to this:
It was heavenly to spend our holiday in the warmth and sunshine and my daughter and I did a lot of collecting. I think it was Nate Berkus who always says to live with the things that have meaning to you, and things that remind you of your travels, so after bringing home 10 lbs of shells I went to work incorporating them into our home as a reminder of a wonderful time.
Many years ago I found this beautiful Murano glass bowl,
and for some reason I have not found a use for it for years. When I filled it with all my shells (and a fishing float) it became a beautiful daily reminder of all the beauty that can be found on a beach.
I found beautiful pale pink,
and a representation of all the love I have in my life.
(it looks a bit like a heart!)
I also found something to dream about
A beautiful pink house, with a Canadian flag, on the beach in the breeze. When it's cold, and the day is long I like to dream about this beautiful pink house in the sun.
