I found these pictures just by chance and had to share them with you!
"Worpole Residence" is located in Canada, Lake Huron - Ontario.  Architects are MOS.
A fabulous place for a holiday home!

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Mountain Home


This home is a place where I could spend most of my days! 
The dining room has so much warmth.  A beautiful Oak Dining table with slip covered chairs and the custom made Bookcases make this room inviting.

Have a lovely Monday!

Hanley House (My Mother-in-laws home)

 Court House

 Whalers Cottage

Motts House

We are off to "Port Fairy"  a gorgeous quaint town in Victoria for our Christmas Holidays.  We are packing up the car and driving down.  My big boys are not to happy about the road trip as we have done it soooo many times since they were little.  We have no real plans but we will stop on the way and just take our time.  Steve's Mum and brother  live in Port Fairy.  Ann has a beautiful old home with so much character and history I look forward to spending time there.  She used to run a Bed and Breakfast from her home but I think after about 10 years she said it was time to have the home just for her.   Ann has a huge Fig tree in her front garden and every year there is the "Port Fairy Folk Festival" where people come and sit under the tree and listen to live music.  Port Fairy has a great community spirit.  Maybe one day we will live there!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Sunshine ......

A beautiful spot for a picnic!  The colours are so bright and pretty!

Its raining, its pouring, my children are telling me everything is boring!  Bring on a little sunshine so we can escape to the outdoors!

Have a lovey weekend!
