simple pleasures

February 5, 2012

a day spent with a good friend

blue sky and sunshine

two documentaries at the Victoria Film Festival

“The Pipe”  – Irish villager’s 8 year struggle with Shell Oil, and it’s not over yet!

“The Ailing Queen” – a passionate young Quebec beekeeper’s struggle to save the world’s bees

window shopping on Antique Row

a window with heart









February shadows

    the deli – for lunch ingredients



comfort food at Mary’s






a treasure from the antique store – stamped Korten &Scherf  – an old German razor, knife and scissor manufacturer. Well used, in excellent condition and very sharp.

–the best part, they were on a table of tools at 2 for $8

they only cost, with tax, $4.47. I’m still chuckling to myself. 

the fabric is rag weave from an old border print skirt on a shadow weave warp.
