Just a beautiful morning here in Prince Edward Island



Sorry about taking the picture through the window this am, but I only had my house shoes on and I didn’t want to shoo away the birds at the feeder.  As it turned out they flew away just before shooting.

However I was able to capture this in the backyard, “no I didn’t capture her I just shot her.” 



Isn’t she just beautiful?  I watched her pounce and capture two moles that were about to eat my spring bulbs and this little red fox was out on the hunt probably taking food back to her young-ens.

You would think I was in the middle of the forest with all the wildlife we have back here.

Here she is after setting down one mole to go hunt for another, smart cookie.


“COOKIES”  Oh my gosh I hope they haven’t burnt,

Got to run hope you had fun….

H= Harmony

O= Others

M= Mothering

E= Embellishments

Welcome Home where I am usually gardening however with all this rainy weather we have been getting these past few days I’ve been mostly knee deep in paperwork. To me paperwork is as hard as pushing the camel through the eye of the needle.

H = This past week I have found Harmony in the voices of young when we visited the International Youth Summit a few days ago. It was uplifting to meet Leah and Glen the parents of Rehtaeh Parsons who was bullied into taking her own life.  The youth summit is the start for everyone to wake up and take notice about bulling.


O =  Our RV travelling in the past week took us to Grand Manan Island where I meet others who live on an Island and struggle doing business.  I made a new friend and hope to contact her this week to see how she is doing.  Others who I have crossed paths with have returned home from their holidays and have emailed me back thank you’s for their lovely stay while here on Prince Edward Island.  One in particular who I took back to the teaching studio said, “my time with you was the highlight of my trip.” now those are pretty impressive words. I figure it is important to make a difference in this world, we all need good memories to look back on from time to time.

Hole in The Wall – Grand Manan Island


M = When I returned home I had a parcel card in my mail box indicating I had a parcel.  I could hardly wait till the next day and the Irving Post office opened.  On the inside was a peeler with and a wonderful note from a young lady in Ottawa.  When the kids were growing up I seemed to have made friends with their friends and many of them felt I was mothering to them and called me “Momma C” or Mom and Amanda has always called me her second mom.  She has a special place in my heart and will be travelling great distances this Christmas and will need plenty of prayers through her journey.  


E = Our trip away was also a seaglass adventure in search of, “why don’t you have enough?” I hear the voice of my son who wants our help to finish building his garage, lol.  It is a get away, a time to reflect, to walk on the beach, to clear your head, to relax after a busy season, to just enjoy sitting without the phone ringing or anything to do but most of all it was a time spent together that only the two of us share.  We need that time every now and again so I don’t think it is about the seaglass but it is about time and as we are getting older we appreciate it so much.  Back home I have a little gift shop and I make jewellery from the pieces of seaglass that are found on the beaches of PEI.  It has become a big thing now that the Sea Glass Festival lands in PEI each year and so many are turning to the art of seaglass.  I needed a new look, something to change, I didn’t want to give up what I love doing so much but on the other hand so many are doing Seaglass jewellery.  So I decided to design a new look, I like to think it is jewellery from the age and era of the Titanic but my French Gardener tells me it is Steampunk Jewellery with all the embellishments.  Whatever it is called I made a few new pieces this past week to share with you and need your opinion on them.  Like most new adventures, we are critical of ourselves so be honest and let me know what age group this might be aimed too? Do you think this might be a seller? Should I just stick to what I know and the usual wirewrapping I’ve done?


Drum Roll………



“Miss dragonfly”  has just landed on a smooth landing pad picked from the shores of Prince Edward Island. Well rounded and smooth this teal piece of seaglass was perfect for her little feet to drop down onto.



 This is dear to my heart and I caller her “Miss Diet”.  If you have a look you can see Miss Diet knows the key to success, and it  is  time and she has nicely put it onto her plate.




“Miss Reflections” who could forget this little dear who flutters around us daily reminding us of how short the tree of life really is for her.  The trunk of the tree of life carries her offspring who have not yet grown up to learn the colours of life yet,  but they are close by and eager. For if they earn those colours her job is done and passed on.




Bringing up the tail end is “Miss Wantabee”

“Miss Wantabee” is a flighty dragonfly who is very compassionate about her work and friends, she is compelled to be a follower not a leader. She enjoys the simple life of colours and flowers and couldn’t care about their names just that they surround her.  She has made her nest in the tree of life and won’t fly too far from it.


The pictures you see are real designs, the names and people they have been created from are protected for personal reasons, and because that is a Grandmothers job, to protect.

I hope You have enjoyed my HOME today.

I’m going to join up with Sandi on her blog site HOME where she invites others to a blog party everything home. Be sure to come and visit even if just for an idea or two about cooking, crafting, tea, friends and decor.

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
