our neighbors received historic status for their home last summer. just stumbled upon the file on-line. they put so much love into their home. we are very happy for them. (plaque ceremony should be soon!)

Cultural Heritage Commission Recommendation Report

looking for some colour

we need some colour on the wall of our bedroom patio...

we are looking at a diy project with the girls this weekend. i think something like these would look very pretty hanging on the wall - and would make good use of our large stick collection.

the chooks are happy with it.

great article on Fickett as well - who for a while our neighborhood was attributed to.

couple of errors - but nothing major. laughed at the quote about feeling like i am in the backyard (i am in the backyard!) and kind of fun to think of myself as a painter!

10 yrs

we moved into this house over the july long weekend 2001.

i was 6 mos pregnant with our first daughter. and it was so hot.

while there are still some finishing touches to do (and hopefully we will do this summer!) d has really made this house a home. a labour of love growing alongside our family.
