Saturday Morning Post



I guess we really do spend a lot of time around the ocean.......


........with the exception of this photo of a Queen Anne Highboy Dresser
we are trying to sell. Had this for 30 years and time to say goodbye.
Switching to lighter, sleeker wood furniture and less ornate.
Anyone need a dresser?


Will she decide?


Parasurfer ripping through the water.


Added this cute little kitty (an Imari Reproduction) to the shop yesterday.


Leading the way to.....?


This guy made it all look so easy last evening at 'the point' in Lawrencetown.


All downhill from here!


Again, last evening at 'the point'.


I loved the sky on this particular morning.


Sophie and her buddies.


I really like how well my Carnival Glass fits in with Amy's (from Fancy Lucky Vintage) display.


From 'my perch' at the shop looking towards the beach.


Look Ma....one hand!!


One would think, from here, that the fisherman is an oil painting...right?
Well it isn't. It is a needlepoint work I got recently and put in the shop.


I think I know those two!


Beach art.

    1. Hi Kathy! I guess it's in my blood, so to speak......living here in N.S. with water EVERYWHERE!
      My shop is doing OK....not exactly flying off the shelves but doing better than just 'paying the rent'. Plus, I am really enjoying doing this, and that is what matters. If I can clear everything out that would be great too!

  4. Hey Jim! I've been enjoying catching up on all your posts that I missed while I was off-line. Terry is still asleep, and it has been the perfect time to sip that first cup of coffee and indulge in your writing and photography.

    First congrats on your first place win in the Trelawnyd Flower Show. Your winning winter shot has such gorgeous colors in it.

    I think, of all the subjects you've tackled recently, the Pema Chadron quote about "the warriors of nonaggression" hit me the most ~ ebola on my mind. I was listening to a newscast a day or two ago, and one of the segments was about ISIS. The commentators were discussing why American, Brits, and other western men were traveling to the Middle East and joining ISIS. They suggested that sometimes people with little background in Islam convert to Islam and kill for ISIS as a "shortcut to heaven." They've done things they're not proud of in their past, and they make amends by killing for their cause.

    What a contrast to the segment on the doctors, nurses, and healthcare people who are fighting ebola. They're risking their lives to alleviate terrible suffering. These selfless workers, some of whom have died because of their efforts, are true "warriors of nonaggression who hear the cries of the world." Thanks for sharing that quote from Pema. It had such an impact on me!

    I could write about all of your posts, but it would turn into a novel. Instead, I'll keep up!!! LOL! Have a great weekend, my friend!

    1. I truly appreciate you going through the posts, Louise. And that you were impacted by what Ani Pema shared on that post. When we think of warriors in our culture what comes to mind immediately, at least for me, are the soldiers/armies in history who fought many battles. Pema's warriors are those very much like those front-line health workers that are willing to put their lives on the line for us.
      Hope your Blackhawk weekend is going well!!

    1. We are so fortunate to be within a short driving distance to the beaches here, Margie.
      Thanks, the beauty of the ocean and beaches makes for a photographer's delight.

  10. Cool stuff and cool shots! You know that highboy would look good in my bedroom - if I had the space...
    Looking at the surfers makes me even more unhappy that my health is spent.

    1. Make the space Sharon! I wouldn't want to know the shipping charges on this one!!
      You had all that energy when you needed it, now your energy is for less physically challenging things.
      Those guys and gals at the beach are young and strong with all the energy they need to surf and ride the waves.

  11. Wonderful shots, Jim. I like the surfers and the parasurfers and the Sophie surfer. Your shop looks great.

    1. Pat, I really believe Sophie feels she is 'one of them' when she is out there with them in her element.
      I am enjoying my whole 'shop experience'. .......meeting lots of people and moving my stuff along.

    Hang loose, Surfer Sophie Dude.

    1. I hope it does, Terry! It is one big piece of furniture!
      Soph really does surf those waves like all her 'dude friends'! She doesn't fight the current or the waves, she goes where they take her. Fearless!
