new home


photo: candy coloured homes on Glisan Street in Portland, Oregon

The last 2–3 weeks have been nuts. And I don’t mean good nutty necessarily..I mean, pack-up-your-bags, your-boxes, your-life and find-a-great-new-home-real fast, kind of nuts. 

The mister and I have succeeded in finding a new home that works for our needs. It is bright, it has a nice view, and is mere steps away from a big park with a lake full of geese and ducks. We’re moving back to East Vancouver, and somehow, that too, feels really good. Lots of new bright photos are guaranteed.

So this is my excuse for not posting more often here on this blog and that too will change once we settle into this new home. Lots of things, I feel will change along with a new home..and at this point I anticipate the changes – no matter how out-of-control I may feel at times. 

So – I will be currently M.I.A. for the next week or so. We lose our internet service tomorrow (the big move day) and should be ready to go with a new modem and shiny new internet service come this time next week..!

Until then friends, I thank you for reading and the comments. I look forward to setting up shop again and being back to “normal” in no time.

Have a wonderful weekend and here’s to warm weather ahead! (Happy Birthday Mum!)

Love: me. xo!

tree cozy project. granville street, vancouver

I recieved this message in my inbox from Erin last week:

“Granville Street is currently undergoing a redesign. If you’ve wandered
through the area recently you’ll notice that the trees that lined
Granville Street between Drake and Cordova Streets are now shoulder-high

The planting of new trees is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2009.
In the meantime, it’s January, and those stumps look pretty miserable.
What say we decorate them?”

so I took advantage of our fleeting sunshine last weekend to install some love of my own.

I chose a strange little corner in front of the very cute and ecclectic Templeton Diner.

Several folks are meeting on Saturday the 24th from 1-4 to install cozies
and encourage passer-bys to make a cozy on the spot. Meeting spot is at
Robson and Granville.
If you can’t make it be sure to check treecozy.blogspot.com to see all the other installations.
