Wouldn't it be lovely to think about 5 things in your life that took your breath away, and to have a heart that is filled with gratitude for those occasions?
This project was started at a class this spring in Arizona, but just completed yesterday when I decided how to finish it.
I hope that you have had some moments in your life that took your breath away.....
This is one of my dear friends, Shirley. Here we are at the Granville Market at False Creek after having lunch at Rubina's Grill.
She is the most fit gal I know, and will be flying to Pakistan at the end of June plans to trek to Broad Peak Base camp and hopefully onto K2 Base Camp -then cross the Gondogoro La - a pass at 5600 metres -from the Concordia Glacier to the Hushe valley it will depend on weather and acclimatization). Hiking from July 1-25. Good luck and safe journey.The web site is www.themountaincompany.co.uk.
How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast has this glorious starry firmament for a roof! In such places standing alone on the mountain-top it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make - leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone - we all dwell in a house of one room - the world with the firmament for its roof - and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track. ~John Muir
Here I am with my friend Shannon on their 21st floor balcony overlooking False Creek. Their lovely home is perched high in the sky with the most wonderful views in all directions. Dinner on Wednesday night was at Vig's, the best Indian cuisine in Vancouver.
The trip to The Van Dusen Botanical Garden was a visual treat for all the senses. The weather sunny and warm, so I was able to drive around with the top down on my Mustang convertible. A very good day.
Thanks Shannon for your wonderful hospitality.

Yesterday was a good day for me in my craft room. I made 3 pillows out of my vintage fabric collection.. The little lamb is hand embroiderd, it has the flower, chenille and linen as part of the body pillow I recoverd. These two are made out of chenille, lace and the fabric from an old table cloth. They now have a new home on our bed.
This is the spring look for the coffee table in our living room. Laurie and Shane sent us the book on golf courses in Colombia, SA. It has been looked at alot of times, and Jim was amazed at the number and quality of the courses there
I found these two old globes at the Salvation Army, one dates to 1972, and the other 1964. Lavendar from my garden in an old McCoy pottery flower pot and rocks I collected from the Oregon Coast.
It is still very cold here for this time of the year, -9 yesterday and -3 this morning, but the good news is that by this weekend it should be 20. Spring is finally on it's way.
