|'Canadian' colours welcome me to Unionville, Ontario, where my sister|
and her family have been living for the past 16 years, and Liberty for 3!
Hello, my friends,
I've missed you!
|On Main Street, black shutters frame white windows,|
allowing for peeks into a reno taking place, 'inside'.
I arrived in Canada on May 7th, and have been enjoying
the sights and sounds of my favourite season.
|A perfect pale purple, luscious lilacs scent their|
surroundings, providing a sweet surprise for passersby.
On my walks around the neighbourhood, I am greeted
by frilly, fragrant lilacs, which instantly transport me
back to the pretty gardens of my childhood.
|Another ebony and ivory beauty, this one complete with French windows|
and doors, facing a pretty pathway, leading back to a welcoming front porch.
The grass is green, the sky is blue, the birds
are singing, and everything's 'brand new'!
|An empty swing sways in the cool, morning breeze, as eager, early|
bird shoppers, (yours truly, included), hunt for charming treasures
inside this beautiful, barn red house holding a contents sale.
Don't you just love it when serendipity sneaks up on you,
smack -!- in the middle of your prepared plans, and
suddenly plants a happy smile on your elated face,
because you just 'happened' to run into an old friend, or,
oh, I don't know...stumble upon a brilliant estate sale?!
|On her way home from work, Liberty stopped to |
smell the peonies, after snapping them for her mama.
But when it strikes TWICE, (coming across pure pink
peonies in full bloom!), it's cause for celebration, and
that's exactly what we did, as we celebrated Liberty's
26th birthday, and Poppy View's 3rd, on May 18th.
|A lemon cream cake, baked with lots of love, for my very sweet Liberty.|
Thanks for visiting! As you know, I've been busy with my
sister's move, buying new furniture, and packing up the old,
with little breaks in between, visiting friends and relatives.
I hope to catch up with you, too, all this week, since
we are expecting 5 (!) days of non-stop rain.
On the bright side, I was honoured to be
featured at Junk Chic Cottage's wonderful series,
'Saturday Spotlight: Life Behind the Blogger'.
Please come by and say hello to our charming
hostess, Kris, and me; we'd love to see you!
Wishing you all a very sunny Sunday, and
a happy Memorial Day to my American friends!
