The written word is a powerful tool!

Dear Readers,

What a crazy year or two! I have a ton of stuff to update you on and 2018 will be a year of new. A new blog, new look and new topics! Right now, I am busy focusing on my fam jam and this includes helping my big sister. Please read her story here and please feel free to share her story (URL – on your Facebook or social media.

Life can be a game of luck & circumstance. A moment can change everything. Luck then intervenes or it doesn’t. Some people just need a little luck or better circumstances.

The written word is a powerful tool and we all have the ability to care and share, which is a great thing. Thank you for your time and chat with you in the New Year.

A message to all the strong sisters in the world: People that don’t know you, should know you because you are an inspiration. You are the toughest person I know both mentally and physically. You always giggle and find humour in the little things life has to offer and I love this about you. I hope you go to bed tonight knowing that I admire you and look up to you, as the big sister you are to me. I hope this New Year is full of health & happiness.

All the best now & always!




Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Thank you for reading my blog and being apart of this vintage & antique journey. I have decided to taking my writing in a new direction. I will keep you posted on what you can expect next real soon…

Yesterday is gone but it has shaped me into who I am today

Today I think differently than I did yesterday and likely will tomorrow

Tomorrow will be here faster than I think it will be, or may not come at all, so I have to make the most of today

Cuteness overload & something cool for the fellas

I just wanted to share these photos with you perhaps they will make you smile just a little. Remember those baby bunnies I mentioned? Here they are!

I also came across this big snapping turtle on my lawn this morning. No shortage of nature sights today…


Stayed tuned some antique & vintage finds with follow in the next couple of days!

In the meantime have a great rest of weekend and remember:

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Brace yourself for a nice finish

Holy man, I missed you guys…

Our rabbit had 9 babies, I have been trying to make my green thumb a little more green and I am on a severe mission to save the bat & bee population. One bee-sy and fantastic June!

Also within 15 minutes of my home, it was decided to open one massive dump site so I am trying to jump on the dump-the-dump bandwagon. In the midst of all this, I have been recycling, up-cycling and garage sale visiting like a maniac. I hope your summer is off to a good start and spring treated you well.

I must say today’s finds are really different & cool.

For starters: A vintage Beam’s Choice Indian Maiden (Charles M. Russell) bottle – 4/5 Quart -I got this for $5 you could sell it for up to $15US but if you find one you may want to keep it as its got a sick finish and really eye catching imagery. These types of bottles were used as decanters (usually for whiskey) in the late 1960’s.

Sometimes I also find miscellaneous objects to be most intriguing. I found this double handled pot and just fell for it. It has such a neat design on it and is solid. I am still pricing this out and learning how to decipher if something once had a lid.
