Tuesday, March 24


This is a magazine published by Reader's Digest. It's a light read, full of content generated by readers. I saw a contest online many months ago and thought I would enter just because it was easy and I always enter a contest if it catches my attention. You can't win if you are not in. Right? ( I have won a lot of things, but that is another post) I did not win, but a couple of months ago I got an email asking if they could use one of my pictures. Sure! Here it is. A simple shot of the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse. One of my fave subjects:)


I also wanted to show you some coasters I purchased from Four Dog Day. I love them, they are beautiful and came packaged as a gift:) Click on the picture to go to her shop.


Today the world is white outside. It snowed last night and continues to snow and blow! I don't mind too much because I know it will be gone within a week or two. This weekend is the Earltown Maple Festival and I think the temps are going to be above freezing so that lovely sap will be flowing:) Yum!

Hey, congratulations. It's a beautiful shot. Loved the tour of the mystic too.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for the rising sap!

Lovely photo of Peggy's - I wish I could bottle the beautiful light in Canada and bring it home with me to grey Scotland!

Congrats!
Lucky you.
And the picture is beautiful.
My Mum loved lighthouses.

(lowering my head) I seldom enter contests...I'm lucky in other area's of my life, but I would like to win a contest someday, so, I guess I'll just have to enter one sometime.

I love Our Canada magazine!!! I especially like its down-to-earth attitude with all the photos and stories written by average Canadians. Sigh....HOME!
