Easter 2013

Wishing you and yours an Easter weekend  filled with sunshine, joy, family gatherings, safe travels, and meals made with love. Cheers dears.

As I ponder re entry to our Canadian home, and the area I will designate as my art studio, the vintage typewriter I procured last fall at a flea market will be front and centre. My $20 investment was upgraded to mint condition as a surprise on Christmas morning, so I will finally be home to take it for a spin. Have a creative week dear ones, and travel safely as you gather with family to celebrate Easter.

Beach Party

This party's almost over! Just a chance photo shoot at Vanderbilt Beach in Southwest Florida, but soon it will be nothing but a fond memory.
Many days of sunshine, friends, great meals and good times, but home is where the family is. Easter is early this year, so between  now and Good  Friday, there is much to be done. Enjoy your weekend dear ones.

Meet Mr. Bojangles

This adorable Brussels Griffen/Pug mix is my new hairy grandson. He weighs about 6 pounds at 3months of age, and will likely double his weight when fully grown. He's quite the little poser, and has been helping himself to Rocky's ( my 13 year old Yorky) toys and beds and chairs. They will get to meet each other in a few weeks when we return, so stay tuned for the Rocky Horror Picture Show. What do you get when a cross old terrier meets a moving ball of energy who steals all the toys????

Soul Search Sunday

Henri Matisse once said, "Don't wait for inspiration. It comes while working." Carl Jung said, "Simple things hold the secret." All anyone needs is a simple inspiration that unlocks the process of over thinking about so many things, and releases just ONE idea to run with at a time. Good luck fellow creatives and blogging buddies. Thanks for your daily inspiration!

Promise of Spring

For you my lovelies, a little eye candy to take your mind off the ever changing weather patterns of springtime. As well, a little reminder that this Sunday at 2 AM, our clocks will jump forward by one
hour. Hail to the extra hour of daylight, and the promise of spring!

Holy Basil

I am impressed enough with the miracle herb, holy basil, that I want to share its story with you in the event you're looking for a new supplement to address your body, mind and spirit. As a member of the mint family, holy basil is closest to the sweet basil we use in cooking every day. It is one of India's most sacred herbs, and after 3,000 years, it is still revered as a powerful antioxidant, anti-fungal and anti inflammatory agent. Its ability to quiet the body's reaction to stress by lowering cortisol allows it to support both the adrenal system and the immune system while boosting brain function and elevating mood. Need I say more? My preferred brand New Chapter for Holy Basil.
