Sooooo tomorrow is Sept is 1...isn't this sort of like New Years?
I mean like, it is the time of year you get organized, kids are back to school, fall is around the corner ,the weather is a little cooler.
Do you find your self thinking skirts and boots...and a touch of leopard skin.
I love a little touch of leopard print to me it is so classic..it never goes out of style both in home decor and in fashion!
My mom just received her ottoman and it is the greatest mossy green leopard print ever...
I love it.. oh and it is tufted ( is that a word...tufted? hmmm..)
I will be sure to share some pictures when the room is finished.

I am trying to fly home today.
CeCe has a final interview at Balmoral Hall in the morning
and we pick up her uniform for next week.
I can hardly believe she is starting school.
Anyways big T is staying back to go through this house with a fine tooth comb...
it needs a gut job..but some parts of it are so lovely.
Clearly not the horrid paint colors.
It backs onto the river which freezes here very early brrrrrr... but I have romantic notions of skating parties, mugs and mugs of hot coco, tons of laughter and rosey red checks.
The basement is the real dealer breaker here as it looks like the support beams may have been damaged so hopefully Big T and the engineer can figure this all out and this could be a possible place for us to call home.

Crazy Hot and Humid

So I am in Grand Forks...
and let me tell you all..it is hot and humid here!

We have a 2 1/2 drive home in a company car that does not have air conditioning..
( it is broken)
The driving is not so bad b/c we can drive with the windows down and get some air blowing around.

It is the waiting at customs .... now that is the killer!
I so wish I could have a few of this fancy cool drinks and breeze through the line up ..but that may be a little hard to explain!

Pretty Hallways

I am dashing out the door today...Have a big day here in Winnipeg.
Bidding on the house that I love!!
Visiting a private school for CeCe..hopefully they take her.

In Winnipeg you don't start School till you are 5 ...really!! ? In St.Catharines she would start school this year.
Why isn't this the same all across Canada?

Anyways, dreaming of getting the house on the river and having beautiful hallways like these pictured above.
I will keep you posted we find out tonight about the home!
