Eclectic Tastes


Kate and Anna McGarrigle are two sisters from Quebec who were part of
the music hierarchy/royalty here in Canada since the 70's.
Kate's son is Rufus Wainwright and he and his sister, Martha,
continue the family tradition today each in their own musical way.

This is one of those songs that may turn into an 'ear worm' for you.

Have a wonderful Sunday every one.

Must be winter....mostly indoor shots this week.


We did however have a good hike around Conrad's Beach area this week.
Sophie was beyond happy as this was her fav 'puppy beach'!


Now let's go indoors for a bit......here are a few wood-carvings and a couple
of very old dolls at the shop.


Also at the shop is this vintage wood round cheese box.
Someone liked it so much they painted these ducks on it.


Outside for a second.....here is a view of one side of this beach.
At the end there is another beach of equal length which
takes you to the river and where it empties into the Atlantic.


I like this little nook created by a brass lamp base and this print
done by an indigenous artist.


The top of the brass lamp and this very old photo print of a boy.......
if any of you recognize him let me know.
I have a feeling he is either George V or George VI as a young child.


Quite the eclectic grouping here!!


Standing alone in the middle of all this crystal is a 'depression glass'
yellow water goblet called 'Wide Panel'.


Close-up....


Looking outside but staying inside.....
a view to the west from the shop.


Pretty certain the original of this print was once
 on a magazine cover back in the 30's.

My sister, Mary, sent me this on Friday night and thought we'd like it.
She was right! We did!!
Hope you do as well.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

Just a few pics this week....


We have had our annual 'January thaw' this past week.
Whenever the rhododendron leaves are broad and lush
it tells us that it is above 0C.
This bush was planted by my parents  back in the 80's
when they lived here.


Passing by the salt marsh one evening this week....

I have always liked vintage labels.....here is one on a vintage 'duffle coat'
I bought this week.


Bridge going over divide between Lake Banook and Lake Charles in Dartmouth...




My 'body guard'......

Contemplative Monday

is free from fear of any kind
to the extent that he is no longer

Eclectic Tastes


In the past couple of weeks Ron and I have become fans
 of the BBC Sherlock Holmes series on TV .
It is so cleverly done and keeps us guessing.

Here is a violin musical medley of the series.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
