Mountain Oasis

Nestled in the low valley below the white crested mountain tops stood the small cottage, where the single occupant graciously catered to those who visited. People from all over the world came to visit her little mountain oasis. Often the apologized for disturbing her serenity and with a plump smile upon her rosy face she told them it was no bother at all and showed them around her gardens and to the mountain trails. Before they left to return home, the plump hostess would send her visitors off with fresh baked goods and honey from her hives.

And I Think to Myself

and-i-think-to-myself

During the day my thoughts are filled to the brim with any given number of items; work, people, media, what is happening around the world. These thoughts intrude my sleep most days, as my brain attempts to sort out their relevance and meaning. Information comes in and rarely leaves, it lingers in my thoughts always. Those around me often ask why I look tired or how do I know that and will comment that I need to shut my brain off some days, and I think to myself if only it were that simple. The only time I really find reprieve from my thoughts and the information overload I sustain every day, is when I find the time to sit and read a good book in the comfort of my home.

Making the Birds a New Home

Making the Birds a New Home

Over the winter my bird house was destroyed by squirrels and the elements. I should have known better and brought it in, but I wanted to ensure that the birds who remained would easily find food if needed. I had not anticipated the squirrels knocking it down and commandeering all of its contents for themselves. Eventually the tiny bird house, once filled with seed, was buried beneath the crushing snow and forgotten until spring arrived and the snow melted away to display its destruction. Now I sit, constructing a new bird house for those who enjoy visiting my yard.

My Neighbours House

My Neighbour's House_main

In the middle of the forest a large clearing had been made; large enough to fit a small city block. Many watched as construction crews came and went wondering what was taking place behind the trees. Soon the crews left and moving trucks and furniture deliveries began to come and go. More gathered as whispers spread across the wind. Who was moving into the clearing in the forest. As we watched a young couple moved into the large home fit for several families. I was fortunate enough to be invited into their home; to hear their story and to share their tale. My neighbours house is large as you can see, but carefully decorated to fit both their jobs within. They wanted to never be apart and had agreed the only way to do this was to move to a bigger home and bring their clients to them.

My Comfort Zone

My Comfort Zone

There was once this little space that stood barren and alone. A shopping trip with friends to browse through the creations of others left the owner of the little space in awe. Inspiration filled the owner as they wandered the market streets and items danced within the owners head. The owner of the little space continued to wander not buying as the friends did, but merely taking in the sites and making notes on key items that were needed to complete the vision that now held firmly within their head. The owner returned home empty handed and stood in the little space as the vision took on shape within the little room. The next day as the owner awoke they raced back to the little market to gather the items needed to make the little space whole.

Which Book Looks Good?

I went to the local book store to find something new to read the other day. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for since my tastes are very diverse. I knew I wanted a book that would last for some time, not something I would finish within an hour or two. I wasn’t sure if I wanted something old or something new. I searched amongst the books offered for something to read and ended up finding three books not one.

Overall Opinion:

I fell in love with the tank top the minute I saw it. It comes in a number of colour options which makes it perfect for anyone. I choose to wear blue for this post but will admit I have opened the other colours to wear as well. I paired with a new favourite pant by BlackRose, which I also fell in love with the minute I saw them. I love this skin, it was given to me to blog for the Black Tie Event and I cannot get enough of it. I am curious to find out if it has other lip colour options. I love that it comes with appliers and system layer.
