The Entrance Way

The entrance way of the home is the first thing our guests see. My grandma use to say that you can tell a lot about the people who live in a home by their entrance way; something I never really gave much thought to as a children. Now that I think back to my grandma and the things she would say, I can now see how the entrance way opens the world to those who live within the home. Some entrance ways are clean with everything in their place and others are a mess with items strewn here and there. My favourite entrance ways are those with clear signs of animals and children. You know this home is filled with love and they are not afraid to show it.

Travelling Neighbours

travelling-neighbours

They arrived sometime during the night while the rest slept soundly in their beds, by morning the site had been set up as if they had been there for days. The smell of roasted chestnuts drifted on the morning breeze drawing the locals to the little gypsy house. As the locals arrived the party grew and more then just chestnuts were served for breakfast. The question that lingered on everyones mind, was long would the new neighbours stay before they moved on to a new location.

Fall Potting

fall-potting

The crisp air fills the air as another season draws closer to its ends. Standing sullenly outside the little shed, she realizes that soon her little plants will be covered in snow and will not survive the long harsh winter. Several minutes pass and she makes the decision to change her clothes before engaging in the task she was now faced with if she wished for her little loves to survive; she mentally prepares what she will need as she makes her way into the house. Slowly she returns to the little shed and sets to work gathering soil and pots; her fall potting has begun.

Lovely Day for a Celebration

lovely-day-for-a-celebration1

The date had been set for early fall with hopes of warm weather and perfect colours. The bride and groom grew anxious for their big day when they would finally be husband and wife. Days past and the weather grew drastically colder and the bride began to worry about the venue they had picked after seeing several others. It was perfectly stunning and she wanted to dazzle their guests. The days faded away as the event lurked around the corner and rain was in the forecast. The pair decided to continue as planned hopeful that the weather would play in their favour. Much to their delight, mother nature was in a humble mood and set the stage perfectly with delightful hues of yellow and warm sunshine fit for a fall wedding outdoors.

Little Man’s Birthday!

little-mans-birthday

Carefully my friend prepared the grounds for her guests. She wanted everything to be perfect and in the right spot. Looking around she smiled at how she had arranged the space. Tables were carefully decorated with balloons and every treat imaginable. Stools and chair were found loitering around tables or near the area where the kids would play games while the adults watched and idly chatted with each other about how life has been. I watched from afar waiting to be told what to do, eyeing the cupcakes that looked mouth watering delicious. All to soon I was stripped from my decadent daydream, as my friend cried out that everyone would soon be arriving. I gave her a nudge and reminded her that it wasn’t every day that your little man turns one, which made the others around snicker as she trotted off to get the birthday boy from his slumbers.

Dreaming of the Sea

Dreaming of the Sea

The young man smiled at his new bride taking in all her beauty. Taking her hand he guided her slowly past their guests nodding in return to their well wishes, taking their seats at the table and watching their guests do the same. He looked around the deck and smiled taking in the evening air. He watched as everyone mingled together over dinner and thanked those who came to congratulation them. He watched his bride light up the area with her smile. Every detail of what he had wanted for their wedding was in its place. She had not protested when he had declared he wanted a sea themed wedding; she knew her groom well and how he dreamed of the sea.
