Computer Games

Having a new computer is a bit of a bonus when it comes to playing games on it.  With todays magic and mayhem in graphics and gorgeous images throughout they are like stepping into a movie that was made especially for you to become part of.  I love them.  Designers are so clever and the colours are spectacular.

Big Fish is my favourite place to go for games and I purchased Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper, Hound of the Baskervilles, Hidden Expedition to the Amazon, Midnight Mysteries Edgar Allen Poe, Puss in Boots,   plus a few others when they were all 60% off the price.  Now I'm set for the winter here in the woods.  Love playing them and being challenged and I figured they were a good Christmas present to myself.

This is where I live in northern British Columbia.  The scenery is spectacular and we pass this river and beautiful mountains every time we go grocery shopping.  Usually the river is wide and frothy and flowing very fast with its glacier water but now its winter it has "shrunk" in width from all the frozen water building up.  Gorgeous country ... but oh so cold.! Click on the image to see it much larger and so much prettier.

Thank goodness for our furnace keeping us warm inside.   Please dont upload to any other site.

my days

Its so cold here in the woods today .. minus 30... so my first thought was making sure we have the water running a little bit so the pipes don't freeze up and then to feed the sweet little chickadees which are flying around madly trying to find some food. At least the sun is out and they might get a little bit of warmth from it but it won't be much.  I don't know how they survive at all.  Perhaps they find a big warmish barn where a kind farmer has housed his cows or other animals and sit up in the rafters hoping to get a bit of salvation from the cold.  I hope its warmer where  you are...  have a great day and come back often. I love having visitors to my blog.

My days

A brand new computer ... WOW ... such beauty.
It isn't until you get a new screen that you realise how bad your old one was.  No hard drive tower to fiddle with ... everything comes within the screen... including the DVD burner.  Amazing.  I love it and it has inspired me to get my creative juices flowing again after a years break.  That time went so quickly and I'm looking forward to sharing my pretties with you all when you visit.  So be sure to return from time to time or send me some feedback or comments.  I love hearing from you.

vintage children

Love these cuties.  All decked out for Christmas. Keeping warm with their cloaks and hats and fur stoles.  Lots of uses for this one I'm sure.

Oh dear... so cold today. Minus 28 and still going down.  It's the time when your hands stick to the doorknobs and your doggie wants to desperately come in again.  I take her out to the bathroom and poor little thing stands there with her feet up in the air.  We get back inside as quickly as we can but I can't help worrying about the animals in the woods.  So cold for them.  I always keep them in my prayers. Lots of hungry little birds are out and about. Chickadees in particular and a few woodpeckers among others.

Whimsydust Pretties

A gorgeous image for  you ... lady is by Harrison Fisher and the other bits and pieces are by me.  :-) I hope you enjoy it. Please don't upload it to any other site.
I thought it was time for me to get back into creating. I love it so much and now that my health issues have subsided I decided to create a new blog for those of you who wish to snag some pretties from time to time.  I'm not sure what I will be sharing  but they will be 300 dpi resolution so you can use them in many ways in your own creations or projects.  Lots of variety and things I love to talk about or show you and I'll even appreciate some feedback with ideas about what you would like to see here.
