Long Beach Breakfast

A scrumptous, hearty breakfast at the Long Beach Lodge and a game of Scrabble. We were up early enough to get a table by the window overlooking the beach. It's a lovely, relaxing way to spend the morning.

I love these vases! Great WEST COAST style. I found out who the local artist is and I bought a vase, as well as a rock tealight holder and rock bookends! I just love them.

Indoors or out, these are fabulous cabin/cottage decor!


Be My Valentine

A Beach Valentine for YOU!

Ocean Spray...watch out Mr. E!
Even in the winter Long Beach is fabulous! The storms are fierce, the waves are churled white, and the rain comes at you side ways. There was a break in the clouds and from the beach I spied this light house, flashing it's warning beacon through the grey cloud cover.

In the Queen Charlottes, the locals say if you don't like the weather, "just wait 15 mins". On Sunday, as we explored the beach I could say the same. For a brief moment the sun peaked out and lit up the sand in a soft glow. These chairs beckoned us to sit a moment.

The view from our room at The Long Beach Lodge Resort...

I'm struck by the rugged beauty of this coast line. The jagged rocks, the broken shells, the tumbled drift wood, the wind swept trees along the shore, they all echo a story of having survived the storm. And there is an incredible beauty in it all!
May each of you find HOPE in the knowlegde that the storms of life will end. The sun will shine again. And you will be a more beautiful person for having survived it!
Blessings, E


Joy and Sorrow

This quilt fills me with JOY!
I went to the Sewing and Quilt Show at the Tradex a few years ago, and when I saw this "PARIS DIAMOND" quilt on display in one of the booths, I broke out in a cold sweat and I just knew I had to have it. I have made quilts for each of my children and this one is for my youngest. It's been a labour of love for a few years now, and I am almost finished sewing the binding. I can already envision it on her bed...

SORROW...I went back to pick up the file boxes and they were all gone! A movie set company rented them, and as the boxes were being carried out someone else saw them and bought all 15 of them....ahhhh. I so don't like when this happens...
