Back From the Wilds of NB....

Well the mother daughter road trip number two has ended. We went back to Fredericton to pick up India's new dog. We managed to visit a few people, and eat at our favourite restaurant a few times.
The first evening was spent with the gang from One Thread Two Thread , in true jackie/lizzie fashion, much red wine was consumed. There was a great parade of hats by the lovely Mira, she has quite a collection........
and much face pulling action went on throughout the evening. Children and adults alike partook of this particular activity.
The very next day, India and Jackie and I took a little road trip to Gagetown, NB and dropped off some yarn bowls to the girls at Tangled Flocks . We were then encouraged to go visit my fave pottery instructor, up the road. His partner suggested we might wrangle a cup of tea from him, so off we went, for a short visit, and ended up staying the entire afternoon. His home was absolutely beautiful, and I took no photos. The pottery and art collection was mind boggling. India did take a few photos of Jackie and I but as for the house, bubkas. I did manage a few shots in Peter's gallery, just as we were leaving so I guess it wasn't a total fail!


  1. Glad to have you back! God, India is just BEAUTIFUL! Even with the face pulling. Beautiful and talented.

    Hope the puppy is adjusting well.

    The hat party looks like much fun. I've always wanted to be the kind of person that wears kicky hats around as if it's normal. I just can't pull it off.

  2. My comment verification word was "ginsoap" !!!

  3. I know, India cracks me up, she is a total BAMF.

  4. ginsoap, is that drinkable???? or just boozy smelling bubbles???lol
    Mason is the hat wearer in this house, he has some great ones.

  5. I don't know. It reminded me of the gin they have in Annie. Bathtub Gin.
    That's just where my mind went and it delighted me so much I had to comment about a stupid word verification. (it's 'tables' this time. boring)

  6. It was great to see you guys again! MAybe next time we will see boy-child too. Or maybe that should be "Your Young Man"! Peter and Karen's house was AMAZING! From the art to the space and the details.

  7. Jackie, I know, I am kicking myself for not taking pictures of the fabulous house! Mason says he'd like to come next time. You should pack up some random kids and head this way!!!! bring em all, or bring a select few, you!!
