A common sight along the shores of Nova Scotia in summer are sailboats enjoying the ocean waves . I am not a sailor but do love to watch and have been on a sailboat a few times .
Next is a summer sunset as yet again the waters are enjoyed by a sailboat , what a great way to enjoy a hot evening . This one was sent to Jeanneke in the Netherlands , so neat to have my postcards across the ocean .
These swaps are such fun and I hope in the next swap we can convince a few more people to participate , I know they will enjoy it .I hope all the postcards are now in the mail , if not please let your partner know that it is on its way and also when your cards arrive please let your partner know it has landed safely so they won't be worried about it being lost , thanks so much . Oh and don't forget to post a picture of your postcards , both sent and received and also the flicker page up on my right sidebar.You can see the postcards that I received from Lin and Jeanekke in the previous post .
I had such fun with creating these little beach scenes I decided I would do a few more , want to see them ?
a little dory anchored in the water
another sail boat
and yet another
am I obsessed with sail boats ?
a lighthouse , another common sight here
The mountains in Mabou .
I have taken these postcards to Fiddle Stitches in Mabou hoping the tourists will love them enough to purchase them :-) I had fun creating them so that is all that really matters .
It is raining here today and rather chilly but yesterday I took the time to plant a few flowers before the downfall came , some pretty red geraniums and some asters to add colour to my garden .
I like to sit out on hot days so I have this very old, very large, chair that is very rustic looking and on Saturday I covered a piece of thick foam with some decorator fabric , zipper and all and now I have the perfect place to sit and read or just listen to the birds .
Can you believe I was actually able to keep this geranium all winter and just look at all the blooms , it makes my heart happy just to see it !
Thats it for me folks , I hope you have a great day , with all this rain it is a great day to quilt so you know where I will be :-) Thanks for stopping by today and remember to do something creative , it is good for your soul .
