Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out in blogging land.
A very special Mother's Day wish goes to my beautiful, wonderful, creative, talented, camera-happy mum. Thank YOU for all that you do.

I count my blessings everyday that YOU are my mum!

A Few Last Details...

New drapes from IKEA

Venetian mirror

French nest

Ralph - I'm 25 and he still travels everywhere with me

I've had a busy couple of months, and thought I would drop a few lines from the nest...

The condo is starting to look more and more like "home" - I recently had all of my friends and family over for a housewarming and it was nice to show off the nest to everyone! I'm so happy with the way everything turned out, and couldn't possibly have finished it without my mum's decorating flair and dad's mastery of all things carpentry/plumbing/electrical - related.

All that is left now is the back splash - I'll post pictures in a few weeks of the finished product!

Happy Birthday, Mum

Beautiful sepia image from Dawn @ The Feathered Nest
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

Happy 50th birthday, mum. Thank you for being not only my mother but my best friend, mentor, confidante, and partner in crime. I love you.

Love, Kate

Happy New Year!



It is hard to believe 2010 is already upon us. I began putting a few of the Christmas decorations away today, although I can't quite bring myself to take the ornaments off of the tree as of yet. I also thought it was necessary to dress the boys up in their Christmas costumes before they were packed away.

The Ginger Boys and I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! I hope 2010 brings you all much love, laughter, happiness and inspiration.
