This is what I woke up to this morning.....A Winter Wonderland!!!! As a child the first snow fall of the year my Dad would play Dean Martin's "Let It Snow"....To this day my family plays it over the phone as my sister,myself and our parents don't live in the same town anymore,we get "A Sense Of Comfort" when we hear the song playing over the phone just like when we lived at home.It puts a Smile and a Tear in my eye when ever I hear it!!! Thank You Dad for this Family Tradition!!!! XOXO DeeDee
I've never tried Mixed Media Art before (mind you i never understood it,i've looked at so many different styles from different artists).So this what I came up with...What do you think? It took me a while to get into it and I'm still not sure if it is finished or if it looks good enough,I'm my worst own critic.I ask my Family what they think and they all like my work(actually the bottom one my daughter asked if she could have it for her room)So I guess my work isn't that bad..I have so many ideas going around in my head of different art ideas I want to try, there just isn't enough time during the day.I have quite a few pieces on the go (from painting on pillows,jewlery,ornaments,purses)I better get them finished before I start on something new.So I best be going to my Happy Place (my craftroom) It gives me " A Sense Of Comfort" to work with my hands.....XOXO DeeDee
So what do you think of my Driftwood Hummingbird and my Driftwood Fish Head? My Hubby,Kids & I used to go river walking all the time in our hometown,it was one of Favorite pastimes (we all miss it very much).We have many Driftwood finds that we made into candle holders.My Hubby & I would find a piece and see something in that piece of wood which no one else could see what we saw,they would just look at us and scratch their heads and wonder what we were smokin'!! TTYS DeeDee
We stopped in Kaslo B.C. my friend and I wandered around the small town looking at the history (while our guys went golfing) We checked out the S.S. Moyie....I've only posted a few of many pictures I took.The first picture is on the ship of the Mens Smoking Room,then the Dining Room.I have to chuckle as I remember when I looked around the corner into the Galley Kitchen how the Chinese Cook startled me and made me jump (i was not expecting to see anybody-which is even more funny as he is not real) The picture of the Menu is from Dec 1904.There are many different rooms for passangers to rest while they were on their voyage.The beds and rooms are very small (people back then must have been very short) as you may notice the very tiny ladies shoes on the floor.Then in the back of the ship is were the women and children lounged.It is Amazing of the Craftmenship that went into this ship...I could of stayed there all day wandering around in amazment and imagening how life was back then,but I had to get back to Reality (oh how i would Love to go back in time) Like I said before if you get a chance to Tour the Kootney's this is well worth the trip.TTYS XOXO DeeDee
My Husband & I went on a weeks holiday (our first time without the kids in 19yrs).We stopped at "The Glass House"(its between Creston & Crawford Bay B.C.in the Kootneys) it was built by a Doctor back in 1953-1963 (he raised his Family their for many years then eventually built a larger home beside this one),it was made out of 600,000 Embalmbing Bottles.There is no insulation in the house just the bottles with all the lids on them that has trapped air inside them for the insulation.The foundation of the house is one solid rock that over looks a lake.I only posted a few pictures of this Unique Place,so if you are ever down this way it is defenitely well worth the stop!!! XOXO DeeDee
Last week I finally did some canning...I made Salsa,Bruchetta & Apple,Peach,Pear,Plum Jam.This was my first time to do any canning of any sort,I don't know why I never started earlier,instead of saying I want to or I should.I Really Enjoyed It!!! Even though I never made very much of each of them,I'm Very Proud of Myself...What " A Sense Of Comfort" Can't wait to try some!!! XOXO DeeDee
The first sign that Fall has arrived in my yard.Yikes!!! Where did our summer go : ( : ( ....Mind you I do like Fall with all the Beautiful colours of the leaves & the warmth of the sun.It definetly gives me "A Sense Of Comfort" What is your favorite time of year? I would Love to hear from you....XOXO DeeDee
