Arrival of great things….

I can feel it in the air – even through the cold! 

Hubby and I travel together to and from work daily (we actually work in the same office building – but rarely see each other during the day; lol).  This commute happens at the same time every day (give or take a few minutes).  And today when hubby and I arrived home from work I noticed 2 things. 

First was the fact that it was actually still daylight.


Woo Hoo!!!

Second, I noticed that there was a parcel waiting at the front door --- all the way from Maryland !!!  The giveaway I won from Kat at Low Tide High Style had arrived!!!

So with some excitement, I opened the box:IMG_2849Carefully removed the carefully wrapped and well packed contents:

Absolutely beautiful!!!  Thank you again Kat – I can’t wait to display these lovelies in my guest room (as soon as it’s done *sigh* )!

So given all this I came to the only conclusion a person could reach on a cold Canadian February afternoon …

Wiarton Willie (and Punxsutawney Phil for my US pals) be damned -


with signs like these it is quite obvious that


is right around the corner!!! 


  1. I'm glad it all made it one one piece and I can't wait to see how you display it all! The wrapping looked much better going in then coming out! ;)

    Thanks for letting me know you received it and thanks for such a lovely post about it's arrival!

    Kat :)

  3. Isn't it great that it's lighter out now? I actually wore my sunglasses out the door of work at 5:00 yesterday! There is hope!

  4. You're sooooo lucky you won that giveaway -- all the items are great!! Especially love the blue plate and the coral votives :-)

    Come on, spring!!!!!

    Regards, Carol Ann

  6. Congratulations dh! What fun. You'll love the Chesapeake Bay Seasoning -- put it on top of creamy soups or chowders or steam shrimp or crabs with it! But don't leave it in the bedroom!
