the tres lovely and much loved Missy D (Winnie Dixon)

My girl - she does love to bask.

Yesterday was a day - a day of flat out busyness all day and into the evening and when all was said and done- not much to show for it at all. Don't ya hate those days. Things worked on, laboured over really, just don't quite turn out the way you'd hoped, then your forced, begrudgingly, to chock that time spent up to process & practice. Sigh. I feel sleepy this early morning (but I thankfully have my big steaming mug of coffee) and another busy day ahead of me. Off to the high school for the morning, then an apt after lunch for a hair cut, a few errands and then back to the teak topped desk for an hour or two of pm Empire Building.

Hey ! We're (and I do mean the big ol' We - even including this old brick house/cottage) featured today over at most excellent, most favourite (& Canadian to boot) design blog Poppytalk. Hooray !!! Merci Jan !!

can you say fetching* ?

*Miss D's beautiful Fall/Winter 09 collar came from this great etsy shop. She has her eye on this beauty for Spring/Summer 09

A gorgeous song heard this early morning while lingering in the land of bubbles & scent. I hadn't heard it in a long while and it reminds me of summers and drivin' in the car to the beach with the windows all rolled down and of my big red boy - Jake. Makes me cry big fat tears of love.

    "What? AGAIN with the camera?"
