Enjoying our new view....


Hello & Happy New Year! I hope you all made it through the Holiday Season without a scratch. Today I am sharing a glimpse of the view we will have off our covered deck.




The little amount of snow we had the other day has turned into puddles already. 




The Pond we enjoy is filled with ducks and many other birds such as the blue heron and our very our hummingbird! We put up the feeder and he was there within minutes. 


The photos below were ones I shot the week in November that we moved in. We purchased a heater for the space but I think we will enjoy it more in February when Spring arrives here on the Island. 




 We were not able to spend our usual time in Arizona this Winter but this is a great place to spend January through March this year....  
Have a wonderful week!

Hugs,
Wanda

Settled In Our New Vancouver Island Home...


Thank you for stopping in today.... We are settled in to our new home on Vancouver Island and loving it. 
We have purchased our first IKEA sofa and I love the casual look. 




We have rented our Condo in Saskatchewan furnished so I only brought a few of my favourite furniture pieces and was able to pick up some great pieces like the coffee table and chair at a local auction. 



This week we are heading to our home in Arizona for some sunshine so I will share more once we arrive. 
Have a wonderful week ahead...

My Attempt At Our Backsplash...



Hello my fellow Bloggers... It seems like I have not posted on my Blogs for ages. 
My Sweetie and I have purchased another home on Vancouver Island this month and I decided to share my attempt at the backsplash. 
The tin like product is available at Home Depot and was relatively easy to install. 



We chose the same paint colour as the one we used in our condo in Saskatchewan and are loving it... again...




I was not looking forward to attacking the corner installation but it went smoothly...





Thank you for stopping in today...I hope you enjoyed a small glimpse into our new home. 

Blessings,

Wanda

Blue Sealers




Hello my Fellow Blogging friends...
It seems like I have not posted in a very long time!
We are now home for a month and heading back to B.C. in July. I must say it was nice being home surrounded by my treasures. 
I am sharing my love of vintage blue sealers.... They go perfectly with my Duck Egg Blue painted pieces!











I have placed them on the 1920's dresser I have used as a linen chest in our dining room area. Sorry I didn't take a shot of it as it is painted in the Duck Egg Blue....




Our poor little Sweetpea was bored with all the photo taking so decided to take a nap...
I hope you enjoyed your visit today. Have a wonderful week ahead!

Hugs,
Wanda

More views as the sun goes down....

We could really get used to seeing this view everyday! The sun is going down and the reflections and colours are spectacular. 
I hope you enjoy my photos...

















Have a wonderful day and make sure you take a minute to enjoy the beauty around you...

Wanda

Beautiful Vancouver Island


Thank you for stopping in today...
I am sharing the view from our B & B suite in Chemainus, British Columbia.
It is wonderful to wake up and see this view every morning...





These two Bald Eagles were perched in the fir tree outside our suite while hunting for salmon I am sure. 

















We are on The Island for April & May so will be enjoying many sunsets and sunrises....
Have a wonderful week ahead!
Hugs,
Wanda
