Hanging Things on our Walls

February has been a good month to decorate boring walls. The bathroom known as "Pete's" needed a curtain; so a questionable curtain was created using a fabric remnant & pheasant tail feathers.

Next a little ambiance was added to the dining room with a couple of candle holding sconces. Notice the romantic glow... look close. ( I asked Pete how to spell ambiance and he said "n-i-c-e", I thought that was funny)


In the bedroom we added some pictures. Holly did the drawing and Pete picked out the framing. Another team effort rewarded with ice cream. Yeah!!!!


When we ran out things to put on our walls, we framed this picture, (which Holly drew), of "Chester" and sent it over to our neighbor, Peggy, for her to put on her wall. {Pete is secretly tricking Holly into completing a new art work each week, then he plans on opening an online art gallery where he can pawn them off. This is his new retirement plan}. 

 Tune in next week as Holly attempts to purchase artwork online, (an original pastel from a complete stranger), from the the UK. You'll get to see her convert Canadian dollars to American Dollars, then to euros, overpay on the shipping, and then try to get a refund. And, Yes, it will be one more thing to hang on a wall.
 We also are going to start a new feature called, "Landmark Video's". So don't miss that. 

We're all looking forward to the end of winter.

February Fun

Yay we did something. We went cross country skiing. Last October we found a cross county ski instructor on Kijiji (Canada's Craig's List) He set up a December date. December came and snow. Then on to snow. Finally he suggested we drive up to the snow. So last weekend we took about a 2 hour road trip and met Dan and Joan for a lesson. We were not sure what to expect.

Holly fell A LOT. It hurt a few times. Pete did very well. It was a 3 hour lesson and very much worth the money as Dan and Joan give all kinds of information.

After a beautiful day of falling, I mean skiing, we headed home to whine about how sore we were and were to become.
