Foggy Morning Walk

I thought I would share my morning walk here on PEI. I hit the red dirt road early. It looked to be a foggy misty day. This is why we drive 12 hours to spend our time here! Nobody on the beach but me. Such solitude and quiet....well it is just priceless to me.
We get to enjoy lupin twice (also native strawberries). Once in New Hampshire and again in PEI. They grow with abandon by the sides of the road.

Here is Darnley Lighthouse in the fog with neat rows of potatoes planted in the field adjacent.

Last night we saw a big fox with a beautiful bushy tail coming back from the hunt. He was successful because he was carrying what looked like an unlucky mouse in his mouth. There are lots of fox here on the island and they all look quite well fed- not straggly at all. They are just like the ones in the Beatrix Potter stories. I am carrying my camera with me more often in the hopes of getting a photo op.

Journal for Olde Lovely

We made it to PEI and this is one of the projects I made before we left to bestow upon one of the friendliest islanders I have met. Cyndy who owns the little shop "Olde Lovely" here on Prince Edward Island was so kind last year to give me a bag of old linens and lace.
I thought she would appreciate a handmade journal made with old linens and lace. If you are visiting the island, check out her beautiful shop set in the Burlington countryside with a beautiful salt marsh view.

Hope she likes it!

A Snippet of Sun

There was just a snippet of sun today but enough to get these beauties out on the line. I went to an auction this weekend. I haven't been to an auction in many many years and oohh... they are fun! Here are a few of my spoils....

What did I make today? More shoes!

What can I say? These little paper shoes are extremely addictive. I've got paper scraps and glitter from one end of my studio to the other. Here is a little trio of wedding shoes.
I made the pom pom with those cool shredding scissors.

I call these Mermaid Shoes for when a mermaid needs to walk on land.
