Off to Canada

I'm off to Canada -


not really, but Lulu felt neglected all week while I prepared for a virtual visit to Canada.


I am both flattered and excited to be featured at Design Dreams by Anne.


So, like Lulu suggests, pop on over to Open House Sundays for a home tour.

  5. Going over, and can't wait, I adore and love your cottage, it makes me want to add colour to mine, aged perfectly like yours, a little wood on the walls would help mine out as well.

    See you in a bit.

    Oh and as for loving Canada, I could so live there...
    I love all Canada has to offer in quaint beauty.

  6. I loved the tour of your home Carol How I wish I could see it in person. It is beautiful!!!
    I feel the same way about my little elf---I didn't want to put him back in his 'off time home' (my closet, so he's never very far :)
    I have the two little hanging ones but have really gotten into the Maileg other little critters. My granddaughters love to bring them all out to play when they are over. It looks like a Maileg bomb went off. None of them I have bought myself however, they have all been gifts from a friend of mine who is hooked too. I'm so glad she thought I needed to be surrounded with little friends as well :)))))

  7. Carol,
    Love your feature over at Anne's. It was fun to see your whole cottage in one post. Love Steve's studio and every room is just so pretty and bright. I so envy your life on the beach with the warm weather and lots of outdoor heaven surrounding you. Happy Sunday.

  10. So I read "Off to Canada!"...
    I am thinking...she will be driving past 34th street if she is heading up the coast!
    The good news was taking the virtual road trip with you, and meeting Anne!
    The feature was fabulous!
    You know how I feel about the two of you and your storybook seaside cottage.
    ...and by through the numerous comments on the journey...I'm NOT the ONLY ONE!
    Happy New Year!

  37. Carol,
    Loved your cottage home tour over at Anne's. Seeing all of your house was so much fun. Of course, I love all of the color, but am very partial to the blues in your bedroom and the buffalo check pillows on your sofa. I look forward to seeing all you do in 2015.

  38. Hey Lulu, I had the best time touring Mom's open house today. I liked seeing everything and it was a treat (you probably like treats don't you Lulu) to see the art studio.

    Hugs and puppy kisses,
    ❤️Ana

  43. Carol, when I saw Lulu I had to do a double take. She looks so very much like my granddog Charlie. I'm not sure how I missed her until this point?!! I don't normally do this, but I'd love it if you went to my blog and did a search for 'my puppy story'. You will see a pic of Charlie at the bottom of the post. Let me know if you concur.

    P.S. Heading to the tour now :)
