An Afternoon at Middle Cove...Newfoundland

I have been lucky enough to go "Home" twice this summer /fall to Newfoundland...
I can not express to all of you how much I love it there and how incredibly happy I am when I'm there!The people, the scenery , the food and the makes for a magical place.
This particular afternoon we decided to hop and in the car and take a quick run to
Middle Cove..Here are a few pics of my family at the beach...ahhhhh

My mom and dad

Mom, CeCe and her dirty old feathers...

I always find a ton of sea urchins...this one was a great one so I decided Tony needed to hold it...
I am not to sure if he thought this was a good idea..
but I really wanted him to show CeCe

He is not looking overly impressed....

But CeCe thinks it is neat...

Wing Back Chairs

Well...I am having a thing for wing back chairs..I love, love the two pictured above here.

Check out the height of their back' just makes me want to hop in with a little bevy...and a great book!!

Oh..and look at that fabby light...

I love that they have crew cuts for the kiddies...And I am in love with Jenna Lyons the Buyer/ Director for J Crew....Have you seen her home in New York...if not I will be sure to post some as cool as her clothes...

A Happy Spot

Oh yeah....check out the doors leading to the garden....
Is that not just amazing....I would be deliriously happy in this room..I would never leave
Nope... not for a second...not even to eat...I would just stay here and relax...and admire!
I am loving this room!
And I would be bone thin...not even chocolate would drag me from here!

I am not sure where I have found these pictures....but I have to tell you I would do just about anything to live in this house....Can we take a moment and look at those incredible glass doors...honestly...seriously...How beautiful are they!! Stunning!!

Grape and Wine time!

Well it is that wonderful time of year again... Grape and Wine...For all those who live in the Niagara Region they know it well very well..It is a time to celebrate our wine , a time to taste great food and a time to listen to some great bands...
I have always viewed this as the official end of summer...which is a little harder this year as summer was late and wet ...and a tad cooler! I am sure I will make up for it in these next few weeks! Here is a picture of a wine bar...I am loving the bottle opener,the wine baskets and the wine rack...It looks as though this was put into a closet...hmmm . What a great idea..Who needs to hang coats, and put shoes away...Maybe we need to do a little renovation! HaHa
Cheers Friends..I hope you get out to a few of the great festivities!

A lovely laundry room..

CeCe starts french nursery school tomorrow..I have mixed feelings on this...I am delighted beyond words that she will be able to pick up the french language at such a young age, I adore the whole french that is a no brainer.
My heart sinks down to my toes at the thought of leaving her for hours in a little classroom where she does not know a lick of french...I am wondering if she will feel so left out and sad.
I guess we will have to wait and see.
And I bet you are thinking O'Reilly what is with the laundry pic...well they have a little cot for her to take a nap at some point in the day...She is allowed to take her blankie..I am washing it in a dungeon of a laundry room and dreaming that one day I may have this lovely room... and a little girl who will ask me in french for a "petite couverte pour la sieste!"ahhhh to dream!
Bonne nuit!

A few pictures of a couple of entryways that I am liking....

This one above is my favorite.. I am hooked get it!!

I really love the over sized clock.... gosh.. talk about knowing what time you left the house...
Kind of like a fancy scoreboard you can't help but always take a peek at the time!

I am loving the shoes made out of paper maps! I would love to put these in a shadow box !

Hmmm ...maybe I need to start collecting maps...there is something so intriguing about them...
I guess it is the endless possibilities of where you can go!

Feeling a little Swedish today...

I went to Ikea with my mom and CeCe today....I love they way you can check your child in and shop care free for an hour or so..seriously that is the best marketing idea ever!
I wish the grocery stores would hop on that idea...anyways it got me feeling a little traditional Swedish today.
