If you are in the Seattle area, pay a visit to Chihuly Garden and Glass. Pictures do not do his art and glass work justice. Outside in the garden enjoy a glass blowing demonstration. Really worth a visit.
Yes Outlander fans I have just returned from The Emerald City Comicon and what an experience it was! I thoroughly enjoyed the panel discussion where Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe told us what filming Outlander was like and the upcoming Season 3 starting in September.

My two best loves (outside of family and pets of course!) Magnolia Market and Outlander!! I am such a groupie. You would think at my age I would outgrow this stuff! So pleased to say that I have tickets for the Emerald City Comicon at the Washington State Convention Centre in Seattle. Leaving hubby at home […]

Good variety of things to buy for anyone’s collection and some unusual things just to look at! This is Romancing the Home’s lovely booth. Most people visiting […]
This great picture in the August issue of http://www.styleathome.com depicts a lovely colour scheme to use for vintage decor in your home. I love picking a pillow or throw or other accessory to use as a jumping off point for decorating a room in my home. This article made me think of a set of chairs and […]
Is it fair to say my weekend reading is complete? This couple is such an inspiration to me when it comes to decorating and designing our hand crafted pieces. I have watched Chip and Joanna Gaines on HGTV’s Fixer Upper since it first began. I am such a groupie that I am dragging my daughter […]
