Won't be long before its Valentines' day .. the way the weeks go flying by ..

Happy Halloween to everyone who celebrates it. I saw Halloween candy in the stores yesterday alongside Christmas boxes of candies etc.  They used to wait till one occasion was over before they piled out the other goodies but now they just keep adding more and more.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the cute little children coming to our door soon.  Have to put my old Dozer dog in the bedroom and turn up the television so he wont hear the fireworks.... they sure do hate those....

Some violets for you today... I love violets...
Halloween will soon be here...
I've finished with my dental appointments ...
I had my hair coloured ..
I've driven around in our little Jeep ..
and all seems well with my world at present. 
Hubby's 60th birthday today so that's a special day for him.
I'm so glad we get to spend our time together up here in the woods of British Columbia. We aren't that far from the bottom part of Alaska ... and its quite wonderful to see all the snow and the animals.  It sure is a beautiful part of the world.

Off to the dentist ... last visit .... and the appointment is at 6 p.m.  I think that's the latest time I've ever had to go to the dentist.  Yuk !   I'm not liking it at all....  at least I'm only a few streets away so that is probably the best thing about the whole process.  Not having a long drive to the nearest bigger town to see the dentist.  It's good now we have one in our little country town.   Please don't forget to click on the animal rescue button down the right hand side of the page... they all need us to do that regularly. It won't cost you anything... and you'll be helping some sweethearts with food and shelter.

Happy days .. well today anyway... I passed my written drivers licence test which means I can now take the road test.  Not having driven for 10 years takes a bit of getting used to again when you sit behind the wheel of a snazzy white Jeep.  I love it and did good when I had a practice run this morning.  I don't want to leave it too long before I go for the road test now because the snow and ice will be arriving soon and that makes everything so much more difficult.

This is such a pretty garden scene.  This morning I asked my new group members .. from "Art-a-la-Carte" to send in images of flowers. I need some  

This morning when I opened the door to let the dog out... we found about 6 inches of snow.  It's so pretty but it all seems a bit early.   I think today we'll have to cover up our conifer trees out front because the deer won't be far away now that the snow has arrived and they seem to think the trees are good snacking material.   Anyway if you like graphics ...  join the new Yahoo group.  It's only graphics ... pretty things in your mailbox on a regular basis.  You can find the link on my blog somewhere down the right hand side... the yahoo page shows my three groups and you are most welcome to join all or any ... 

Click on the image to see it full size. It's quite lovely... and big.

a desktop wallpaper for you... click on it to see it original size... and save it from there.
I've been busy over the weekend reading up on my road rules book so I can get my drivers licence again.  I have driven for 33 years in Australia ... and two years here in Canada ... I let it lapse for some time and now want to get it again ... but what a hassle. I'm back to being a Learner ... so hopefully if I can get the book into my head I'll be at least able to do the written test this week.   Urgh!!!   it wasn't easy getting it in the first place here in Canada. Everything is back the front from what I've learned and used and driven by in Australia.  It's like trying to drive in the mirror.  oh well... I'll keep reading my book this week... after I go to the dentist for my new crown ... and a few other things I need to do ... I'll go over to the transport office in town and see what I can do....    I want to drive our new little Jeep. It's so sweet... I love it...

I just added the world to my blog.... :-)
It's at the bottom of my page so go down to the bottom and you will see yourself flashing in whatever country you are visiting from.  Pretty cool I think.  It's a pity I didn't add it 40,000 visitors ago .. I'd have had all those little red dots from everyone had I done that.   It sure is a clever thing.. internet I mean... to be able to see all the countries and know that that little light blinking in my area is me.... or you.... lol...
Don't forget to visit my Etsy Shoppe .... it has stacks ... over 220 sheets for you to print out and enjoy.  Latest addition are very pretty cards with backs on them .. you print and fold in half ... they are really lovely ...  I've printed so many of them to use for all occasions.  There are also christmas images ...  you can print for gift cards, there's hang tags, circles and rounds if you are into making pocket mirrors.  I would love one of those with my images on it.  There are also backgrounds to use any way you wish... there's images to print and use as bookmarks or cards, way too many to mention here .. just drop by and see for yourself.

Remember that they are just images so even if you are into making stationery or cards yourself, or maybe webpages or blogs .... you can use the blog toppers by just adding your blog name.. there are also lots of gorgeous Etsy shoppe banners if you have an Etsy shoppe.  There's little bears of course .. (my favourite)... and lots and lots of gift ideas.... 

Some vintage angels for you..
Save them to your Christmas folders ... never can have enough angels or cherubs if you love vintage. They are much bigger if you click on the image to see the original sizes.

Some pretties to add to your stash... gosh we just had Thanksgiving here in Canada and soon it will be Halloween.... then onwards and upwards to Christmas.  We had a very weird summer and everyone says it will be a bad winter.... all of them are bad .. when the temperatures get down to minus 40 or so.   I'm looking forward to seeing my little deer come visiting again.

I love seeing these sweet little guys ... we seem to have stacks of them each day at the bird feeders.
Chickadees with their cute little tune they sing so often....
It won't be long and they'll really be hungry when the snow comes and the cold.   They sure are pretty.

I was outside the mall today with my beautiful white "Dozer dog" and so many people stopped and commented on how pretty he was.  One little girl said "he likes me' and had the biggest smile as she touched his head.  Ladies with kids in strollers, elderly ladies, expectant mothers, and some teenagers all said he was a lovely dog ....  I told my hubby that his son ought to get himself a big white dog .. because he'd certainly be a girl magnet.  so funny.....   If somone wanted to pick up girls then they need a big white dog like old Dozer.

I had my last eye appointment this afternoon ... all is good thank heavens and my eyesight now is spectacular after my surgery.  Only bad thing about seeing so good is now my wrinkles are obvious. Yikes!!!  I never saw them before .... lol.....
One for you today from my Etsy Shoppe.... I love creating with jewels and gems and all things pretty.  Making anything with diamonds in it is super delicious.  You can click on the image to see it full size ... its 300 dpi so when you print it out it will of course be smaller ... (normal gift tag size).
