I'm being featured to today at Savvy Southern Style

Hello Everyone! Today I am being featured at Kim's blog Savvy Southern Style!

For those of you just visiting for the first time I thought I'd share some highlights

of my home...

My home has two claw foot tubs. This is my own bathroom. It is a great

retreat for me...

The house is very old...around 100yrs old. Take note of the old french front door.

Yes it has a skeleton key to open and close it! Hope no one ever misplaces it...we

will be in big trouble then.

All the windows in the living room and bedroom are original to the home.

They open out and have no screens. Thank goodness there are not alot of bugs

in the back home in Ontario.

I love antique mirrors and have collected a few...

This is my romantic sleeping porch off the master bedroom... notice the window

how it opens out...

Please visit Kim today at Savvy Southern Style ! Thank you so much Kim for

featuring me on your gorgeous blog!

And thanks to all of you for visiting me...

  5. I've come over from Kim's but I think I've visited before.
    It's hard not to be smug when we're enjoying such a balmy winter and all our friends, east and south, are having such a hard time of it!
    Your home is lovely - real Cowichan Valley style, the sort I've often admired.
    As soon as The Great Dane is well, we're heading past you and up to The Crow and Gate for a good pub lunch - and a visit to Cow Bay as well.

  6. I was sent over here from Saavy Southern Style, and I'm so glad I did. Your home is beautiful, and your photos are amazing. I love that you sent some "green"in one of your posts. Plus, anyone who is an animal lover is alright with me, animal lovers are the best people. That little lacy slip-covered chair is precious, and i Love old homes and old windows...I can't wait to dig around in your blog some more...

  42. Hi Pamela,
    I found you through my friend Kathy's blog, A Delightsome life.
    What a lovely home you have! I love older homes as they have so much more character than the new ones. Your photos are wonderful!
    My middle son and his wife lived on VI for a year but we never got out to visit them while they were there. They are now in Vancouver once again. I have another son attending U of T. It's nice to 'meet' another Canadian blogger and I hope you will stop by and pay me a visit. Would love to have you. I'm your newest follower.


  43. Lovely blog!! I will be back often!! I'm now a follower and can't wait to keep up with your delicious home!!!

  44. Congratulations on your feature. Your home is so beautiful. I love that the windows are original and that you have a skeleton key for the front door - me too! I'm green with envy that you have two ( holy cow! ) claw foot tubs. That's just dreamy!

  45. So wonderful to know that you stop by! Thanks so much for your very nice comments. I'd love to visit your city someday. My son lives in Blaine, Washington and I'm sure I'll get there before long. You have a lovely blog! I'm so glad you introduced yourself!

  46. You have such a lovely home Pamela! I love the snippets of it you share with us. You already know how much I love your sleeping porch! Congratulations on your feature over at Kim's blog!
