I realize the holiday season is past us but I was having such a great time off that I didn’t post any photos of what my home looked like.  Take a look at Christmas 2016:

I kitted out my front porch with a small sleigh that included burlap and pinecones.

I picked up the white wooden star at All Through the House in Okotoks.  (more…)

I spent the first week of 2017 touring about Palm Springs.  It is a fantastic town full of amazing mid-century architecture, stunning views and wonderful people.

I snapped this pic from the parking lot at the Palm Springs Visitors Center.  The landscape is other worldly.
