Thirteen in '13!

Happy New Year, friends!

I thought I'd jump on board and join the 13 in 13 linky party being hosted by Dragonflies in First, the Teeny Tiny Teacher and Miss Kindergarten.  Thanks, ladies, for a fun party!

Similar to these brown boots except with lacing that ties up the side. SO comfy!!

Love this movie. I've seen it twice now.

Really hoping it doesn't get cancelled.

Fireside Grill in Victoria. LOVE!

 I just started eating seaweed snacks. An acquired taste for sure, but very yummy.

This sweet little "otter holding a pearl" necklace from my husband.

This is on my "secret" inspiration board.

I honestly don't have a favourite, but my Christmas Art Tour was fun.

I think the most popular is Pattern Block Mat Freebies with 944 hits.

 Ooh, this is hard.  I'm gonna have to pass ... I honestly can't think of anything!

Oh wait! I made dinner a few times this year. Haha.  I know, I know. 

My husband does all the cooking. Don't hate me :)

My son holding his newborn son.

Our Thanksgiving trip to Kelowna for the annual wine festival.

Finish my grandson's quilt! Hopefully before Valentines:)

  1. That photo of your son holding his son give me chills! I absolutely love it!! That art you pinned is beautiful.

    Your pearl holding otter is adorable. Revolution is a guilty pleasure of mine. My husband hates it. haha

    I don't think you need your one little word to be create... you've ACHIEVED that! You are so creative.

    Happy New Year Barb!!!

    1. Sadly, I don't think your husband's alone in his thinking. I'm just realizing it's not a popular show. Gotta love Miles though:)

  2. The picture with your son and grandson is precious! I love the boots! I wish I could wear boots all year around, but I think I would get a little hot in the summer! lol Lucky you for having a husband that does the cooking. I'd like someone to do the cooking and the clean up afterwards. ;) I totally agree with Traci, you are already a very creative person. Happy New Year!

  3. Beautiful photo of your son holding your grandson! I'm sorry, but the seaweed snack just doesn't sound right! lol! :)

    1. Thanks, Lori. That pic sits on my piano and I look at it every day:)

  4. Hi Barb! That black and white photo is stunning! I remember thinking Love Actually sounded cute. We'll have to look for it on netflix. Love the boots too! Happy New Year!

    1. I hope you enjoy the movie as much as I do. Happy New Year, Chrissy!

  5. I bought some boots last week...I sure hope they will be comfortable like yours (and yours are very cute!). And I agree--the photo of your son and grandson are marvelous! Congrats.

    1. Thanks, Alyce. He's the love-light of my life:)

  6. Yes, the photo is perfect! He is so tiny. Can't wait for grandkids, hopefully yours live nearby. Happy New Year, Liz :)

    1. Grandkids are the BEST! He's about a 3 hour car/ferry trip away ... not too bad:)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  7. The picture of your son and grandson is so sweet. I can see why you picked that one!
