Cross A Line

Hello, folks! It’s chilly where I am at the moment, and even though a temperature of 14°C (57F) seems practically tropical compared to what we left behind in Ottawa – a balmy -27°C (-16F) – we are not equipped with heaters or insulation here and can really feel the chill! So, here’s a fall plaid… Continue reading Cross A Line

Present In Death

Hello, there! Have you ever read the short story by Hector Hugh Munro called The Open Window? [Read it here if you haven’t!] It is a story of how even in death people can very much has a strong presence in a house (…with a twist at the end, of course).

My Marble-ous Mani

The other day, I was browsing the web and I came upon something called a “pun generator”. Basically, you enter a word into the generator, and it tells you what words you can play upon and suggests a number of puns. As you can tell from the marble-ous title of this post, I have a… Continue reading My Marble-ous Mani

She’s very curious, and I’m loving how much she enjoys people-watching and looking around when we’re out. After we got home, I had an… Continue reading Abstract Beads

NOTW: Multiple Multichromes!

So… about the prompt being “rainbow” for this week’s 31DC: I messed up! I did my rainbow nails yesterday to post today, but it turns out that it’s “metallic” this week. I’ll do my metallic nails over the weekend; for now I have a NOTW for you. Mr ACD was away last weekend and I… Continue reading NOTW: Multiple Multichromes!

NOTW: Grassy Swirls

I couldn’t decide whether to name this manicure “grassy swirls” or “swirly grass”. Either way, that’s the visual I had in mind when I did this mani — wind blowing through a field of grass. I had started out hoping that the blue stamping polish would be more vibrant over and cover up more of the… Continue reading NOTW: Grassy Swirls
