she spends time in her Vancouver BC studio
and in Auvilar, France as a host for the VCCA
She lives aboard a classic Chris Craft in False Creek
she has a lovely husband, dear friend to mine...
a skilled I.T. guy, photographer, navigator, scotch drinker and wine connoisseur...
Seen here about to partake in fresh Dungeness Crab Cakes...
caught by Mr. HB one of the the best crab hunters and catchers I have known.
The Humble Bungalow Hostess's specialty at anchor...
crab cakes served with my BFF 's amazing ginger dip.
Cheryl is at home on the sea
Mr. HB and I have enjoyed many a cruise together with Cheryl and her hubby
theirs is the large Chris Craft
originally powered by 3 motors
we are the smaller vessel
powered by two
sharing an anchorage
on the tides
Cruising is all about the journey
and we are steering a course
We are fortunate to have a few pieces of her work....
Cabbage Island, BC
I commissioned her paint the Humble Bungalow
a gift to my husband a few years back for Christmas
she has captured it brilliantly.
She has been very generous...
watercolour of a totem
Queen Charlotte Islands, BC
which has a place of honour in our dining room
fresh from France
Poppies painted on antique French linen
framed floating in glass
with the Humble Bungalow green paint in the bathroom as a backdrop!
I fell in love...
"still life with apples"
wave pattern china
(which we both have and use on our vintage Chris Crafts)
I purchased this on a surprise visit to her studio during the Vancouver Eastside Cultural Crawl.
here she is cooking in the Humble Bungalow
she's so beautiful...
looking very chic
on a cold winter walk
her smile is bright and genuine
she has a passion for colour
evidenced in her art
clothing and accessories
she embraces life with zest
I find that trait enviable and admirable
balanced and strengthened with the practice of Yoga
she embodies grace
her spirit is light
she's started a new blog
please go visit and say hi
it's her birthday...
say that I sent you!
Happy Birthday Cheryl
Hugs from the Hostess!
