Well hello there, thanks for stopping by!

My name is Cathy and I live in the beautiful State of Maine.  I spent 47 years living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, before finding the man of my dreams and moving to Texas for almost 10 years and then recently boomeranging back up to the East Coast.  We are parents to a sweet little dog named Bandit.  We love him to bits!  He is part Australian Shepherd, part Husky and that makes for a cute combination.  He can’t seem to stay away from skunks but other than that he is the perfect little sweetie.

I’ve never tried beer, coffee or tea.  (That’s right, a Canadian that has never tasted beer!).  Crazy, eh?  

I love Pinterest, milk chocolate, baking, making crafts and jewelry, collecting magazines (that I’ll probably never read again yet can’t seem to part with either), thrift stores, buying and wearing vintage jewelry…okay, any jewelry, antique malls, yard sales and anything related to the beautiful state of Maine and my hometown province of Nova Scotia, Canada.

I see humor in pretty much everything that life has to throw at me because I’d much rather laugh than cry that’s for sure.

I don’t usually brag about going to expensive places but… I just left the gas station.  Bah-dump-bump!

Success:  Sometimes success is just getting the laundry into the dryer before the mildew sets in.
