Weekly Photo Challenge – Beloved

If you know me at all, you will know that I have been a softy for my 4-legged family members for my entire life. I was brought up in a pretty old-school Italian family and we always had a dog but it was for the specific purpose of hunting. I did not follow suit. I don’t eat meat so I’m not into hunting, and my dogs sleep in my bed! hahahaha.

In my house, my dogs are family members. I have no children and it might be a cliche but they are fur-babies and they are cherished to the max (some may say spoiled!!!) Betty and Cali are my Beloved best friends and they do everything with me. They are loved unconditionally – which they return in spades – and are always super happy to see me come home… I have had many dogs over the years and they each share a special place in my heart and I can’t even imagine not having a dog in my life. xoxo

Weekly Photo Challenge – Weathered

“Where does all the beach glass come from?” A question I have often asked myself while combing the beaches of the Salish Sea over the last few decades. And as you might have guessed, I have collected my fair share of this Weathered glass. With every piece I find, I know there is a story to be told, and I sometimes make a story up in my head as I walk home and add another piece to my collection – maybe it is the remnant of some mysterious shipwreck or a piece of an old message in a bottle that broke over some reef! I love seeing all the colours and shape and how some sparkle and some have a matte finish, some still have some sharpness to their edges while others are completely smooth – each piece is unique on its own. And what do I plan to do with all this Weathered beach glass, you ask? Well, for now it sits in a vintage bowl in my garden to be adored but who knows what the future holds!?!
