I love fall, everything looks so beautiful this time of year. I wish I had a better camera to capture all the beautiful things I see everyday. It only lasts a very short time here in Calgary, so I'm soaking up all that I can, with excursions out with the boys on a regular basis. Today will be a trip to the river to throw rocks.

Going to the zoo this time of year is great too, because it's not as busy. We're also experiencing a brief Indian Summer and it is nice and hot out. The boys love it, and ask to go almost everyday!

I went to the Uppercase Gallery today where they were doing an exhibit called Old School. I loved everything! I bought a few items one of which was this print:

If you love this as much as me check out their website: www.paperedtogether.com. Believe me you will want everything!

There were other beautiful pieces of artwork and "old school" items that were hard to leave behind at the Uppercase Gallery. If you live in Calgary go check it out before it's too late!

My husband recently moved to a new office which is in dire need of a makeover. In his search for some art he came across the coolest sites for cheap beautiful art. I found a favorite amongst the group: Shira Sela. I just love her stuff. Can't wait to buy some for myself - oh and for the office!

The Alphabet

My little three year has informed me that he no longer wants his room decorated in "classic Pooh" because he is a "big boy" now. Needless to say it threw me for a loop because he doesn't seem big to me at all! So I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with something he'll like and I'll like too! I finally decided on an Alphabet theme. I only have a few things so far and I will post pictures when I finish the room, but until then my sister put me on to the site www.binth.com and I LOVE it...

Writing on the Wall Wednesdays

I thought I'd try this out and post some of my favorite authors and books once a week, although it may happen more often than that depending on how much great stuff I find!

Sally Hunter is one of my favorite children's book authors. Her main character is an adorable Elephant named Humphrey who has a simple way of looking at things in the world. My boys love these books, and the website has all sorts of fun things to do as a family.

My first blog!

I have finally succumbed to the blogging world! After my sister created her blog and I became addicted to it - I realized it was such a great way to use as a creative outlet and a way to keep in touch with friends and family. So I decided to start my own. I'm hoping this will provide enjoyment for those who love family, children, writing, traveling, reading, relaxing and all things I will dub as "my favorite things" (which may be many). Well here goes...
