Over the holidays, I received a lovely surprise from my blogger friend Kim who does awesome lifestyle and beauty posts at A Very Sweet Blog. Thanks again, Kim!
Was Santa good to you guys this year:) Did you have a relaxing time off?

All I Want For Christmas 2019

As a last post before Christmas, I thought I'd post my wishlist for this year:) Not much, which is good I guess:D

1) Alla Prima by Richard Schmid
 A lot of oil painters really love this book, so I would really like to have it someday:)

2) The Art of Tim Burton
I'm a huge TB fan, so this would be a great addition to my library:)

3) Julian French Easel
This would be so handy to have for plein air painting.

What is on your Christmas list?

On that note, I would like to share a video of my daughter singing a Christmas song. Happy Holidays, everyone!!!

Ahead of the game

These pics were taken before a big snow storm came over. It's all snow here right now. The ironic thing is that it might melt before Christmas, which is usually the time we want snow. Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humour, I tellz yah.

Stay warm...or cold...wherever you may be:)

Raindrops and roses

The stark and harsh winters we get here in Canada is really kinda depressing sometimes so what's a girl to do but pretend it's still warm and add some colour in her life:)

What have I been watching #14

Shows and movies I've seen lately and have enjoyed:)

all images from

1) The Boys (Amazon Prime)
I've been wanting to see this show for awhile but was hemming and hawing. My younger sis finally saw it and told me it was good so I made the time, binge-watched it, and now cannot wait to see Season 2!!!!

2) Confession of a Murder
Korean revenge movies are the best, you guys  (Old Boy, Monster, etc.) and this one had a great twist on the end.
3) Memoir of a Murderer
Great acting from the cast, and a well-written plot. Highly recommend:)

4) Montage Another revenge movie that's pretty awesome and had a great twist:)

5) Amityville: The Awakening
Not a big Bella Thorne fan, but this one was ok. Not as good as the original, of course, but I kinda like the whole Amityville franchise:)

6) The Witch
I know this is an old movie, but I just got to see it, and it's freaking awesome!!! Robert Eggers did such a great job writing and directing this movie, and now, I have to see T…

Hello old friend

When in doubt, I always go for my tried-and-true all-black. It's also a great way to be seen when there's snow:D

 Guys, I've had this World Republic sweater for more 20 years...cray cray, right?

Are you a fan of all-black outfits?

Blue's Clues

I can't believe it's really December, you guys!!! Anyhoo, winter did come a bit earlier for us this year, with all the snow and cold, but I guess that's Canada for you.

Hat designed and knitted by me (prototype of the hat done for the Master Hand Knitter program)

Thing 1 and Thing 2

I love dressing the same as my daughter (see this post as an example). Yes....I know, I know....but I can't help it!

Soooo, when I saw these, I asked my husband for an "advanced" Christmas present...hehe....

Trying it on in the store:D
