silver charms and jewelry. The tag reads 'of meaning and purpose'. It is joined by a tiny Buddha - also from her collection. This is a piece I created for myself, and while I may reattach it to a chain later, it will match one of my favourite fall wardrobe colours for this season. I call it warm tobacco and it goes well with black and navy which are a mainstay for me in the legging department.

Of the hundreds of images I loved and pinned today - (studies will soon show that Pinterest is addictive), it is this image that created a stir for me. Almost simultaneously, I began humming the old 80's tune ..... just another manic Monday .... Cheers dears!

This painting was my favourite accomplishment of the summer lineup as it immediately evokes childhood memories of visits to Wasaga Beach. There was a time when there was so much white sand, that two lanes of vehicles could drive along the shore and still leave plenty of play area for families and sunbathers....... and those were the good old days if ever they existed!

Lake Louise and The Banff Springs Hotels are grand old iconic nods to the accommodations of yesteryear and today, but it's the setting and surrounding trails and outdoor activities that speak to the lifestyle of the young demographic upon which the service industry depends. While we opted for more countrified log cabins set in the woods between these two landmarks, we still enjoyed a sampling of their culinary expertise - albeit pricey.
Had we waited just one more week to go west, I fear the show of summer florals we photographed so frequently would have all but vanished.

I have returned from the wild west with numerous photos, and fond memories of Canada's Rocky Mountains. It will take a few days to settle in and upload photos, but in the meantime, a nod to the furry kids in my home and yours.

Every time I ever took a photography course, I learned that there is always more to learn about the art of photography. I have forgotten more than I ever learned about dark room techniques and F stops, but relearning has gotten as easy as it's going to get with YouTube how-to videos and Pinterest pins. Go to my Studio Board to see what I mean ..... p.s. you'll need to click on the image below to see the today's lesson in lighting. Click on my Pinterest button for even more inspiration!

The latest release of the Merriam-Webster dictionary includes numerous entries from today's vernacular.
Most of these need no defining at all - unless of course you've been hiding under a giant rock for the past few years ..... among the self-explanatory words, we have f-bomb, sexting, game changer, gassed, gastropub, earworm, aha moment, bucket list, cloud computing and copernicium - which I had no idea was a short- lived artificially produced radioactive element that has 112 protons..... duh.
