Creamy white Ribes
with a smattering of chartreuse
Blooming in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
It has been pretty quiet this past week here in The Humble Bungalow.
Lots of walks, reading, mindful eating ~ counting my WW points.
I read this gripping crime drama book by Jane Harper.
She is an accomplished author and wow can she weave a murder mystery!
The snow has melted in our neighbourhood...
Blue skies, crisp cold temperatures and a lonely snowman on the beach.
We walked at Butchart Gardens on Sunday.
I cannot remember ever visiting the gardens in the snow.
I know that there was an icy Christmas when we visited to see the Festive lights.
Yes those ponds are frozen!
A wee snowman in The Japanese Garden.
I posted a picture of this vintage bureau on Instagram.
I purchased it from Karin at Kay's Korner in The Cook Street Village.
It fits well in our laundry area and is so much neater than the open shelf unit.
I have stored my knitting "stash"
needles and patterns
in the two lower drawers
my garden apron, secateurs and gloves in the top drawer.
A wonderful purchase that has given me a lift!
Speaking of changes
while tidying and de-cluttering in The Humble Bungalow...
I have repurposed two silver champagne buckets.
Feeling restless, and as a result, the need to refresh and fluff our surroundings.
Spending so much time at home has definitely made me look closely at what we have and what is lacking.
New bedding linen, a hall runner and the bureau are examples of change.
Laura Ashley coverlet and pillow shams.
Pepper our older cat approves!
I had a strange dream last night...
(my dreams are frequently weird)
I was in the make up department and was trying on dozens and dozens of lipsticks.
The clerk running to all the cosmetic counters in search of the perfect shade.
When it came time to choose I told the clerk to wrap them all up!
Think I know what might have fueled the dream...
Yesterday when I removed the mask that I wore at the grocery store
I discovered that it was smeared with red lipstick.
Thank goodness that they are washable.
What is new with you?
Lisa Jewell has done it again...
a thrilling page turner.
Now I need to find a new book.
What do you recommend?
Thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
