Happy Halloween Everyone 2012

Sad to say, but this year Bob and I weren't feeling the Love for Halloween - not sure what is up, maybe the stresses of work every day and things going on around us, it just isn't happening.  We had really good intentions, but things just didn't happen.  Oh well, at least we have some candy to hand out, but even then, will we?  Will get get any kids?   Hurricane Sandy came for a visit last night and we are still getting the rain from it along with another system that moved in.  Where we live, we are lucky to see between 30-50 kids.   We shall see.
Anyways, one of my co-workers went to a party on the weekend and Bob and I sort of know the couple who hosted it.  We received an invite but we didn't go due to other obligations.   He showed me on his cell phone a photo he thought I'd like.  BOY DID I EVER!  Finally some better quality photos showed up on Facebook and I was soooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!  
I emailed our friend to ask if I could post a couple of her piccies on my Pinterest Page and thought, what the hey, I'll post them here too - teehee!
I'm so impressed with the job that Dara did she has made me interested in Halloween again!  LOL
I don't think I'll have time to make a simular costume, but gosh darn it, it's made me excited about trying!  Yippeeeeeee!
Again, as you know, I love EVERYTHING to do with Yellow Submarine - so I hope you enjoy Dara's pics of her costume she mad!!

and with that, I will leave you with some more interested Yellow Submarine Related Halloween Costumes I have located online.  :)

I was playing around on Facebook on August 20 when a message popped up on my screen from a friend who said she had been in WINNERS and spotted Yellow Submarine luggage.   The next day right after work my hubby and I booted it over to the store and low and behold they had all three pieces there.  I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!   As you can see, I bought all three!

I had seen this luggage online in the UK and it was for double the amount I paid at WINNERS.  

By the way, did you know I  LOVE  everything to do with the Yellow Submarine?  teehee!

Even the kittens had to come out and check on the luggage.   :)

Wind Storm - March 3, 2012

We had another wind storm, it wasn't as bad as last years, but it was still bad.   It started around 12am in the morning and rocked on for most of the day.  We had wind gusts up to 100 km an hour.   Our power flicked off and on through the night.  It was hard to sleep worrying about things blowing off the house or into it.   We were very lucky.  Woke up around 7am and put on a pot off coffee.  I tried to access the internet but it was down.   Had our first cup around 7:30am and then shortly after our power went out.  It was off for like 2-3 hours and the wind rocked on.   I looked outside and saw that our gazebo had somehow been pushed over and bent the top of the frame.   

Spoke to my mom and found out a section of her fence had blown down.

After the power came back on and taking a nap around 2:30pm, the internet finally came back online and I was able to surf for a bit.     We made dinner, watched the news and then I started to bake a cake  some cupcakes for my hubby's birthday dinner.   I had time to do a little painting.

I love to look around Pinterest and saw a neat quote about All You Need is Love and a Cat.   I decided to kick it up a notch.   Changed the V in Love to a Heart and made the word Cat Plural (after all, we have more than one Fur-Baby.)  and added a tale to the word cats.      Here is the result:

Painting & Necklace Storage Idea!

As you know, I LOVE everything to do with the Beatles' YELLOW SUBMARINE!!!    After finding an unfinished table at a local thrift store I knew what I had to do - paint my own Yellow Submarine table!!   I used the colours: lime green, purple, yellow, red & black.   I LOVE IT!!!!!  

Yellow Submarine Table - www.fishinthec.blogspot.com, Anyone who knows me KNOWS I love anything to do with the Beatles' Yellow Submarine.  After finding an unfinished table @ a local thrift store I knew what I had to do.   Colours used, Lime Green, Purple, Red, Yellow & Black.  I'm in love!!!   www.fishinthec.blogspot.com

Now, I was introduced to the fabulous website  PINTEREST - it is Heaven!!!!!   All the wonderful pictures & ideas.  I was so inspired by the following:

I was looking through photos one day and came across a sign someone had painted that stated something about Dog's Nose Art.   We don't own any dogs, but we do own SIX cats, so I turned to my husband and said I HAVE to paint my own sign.   I located a piece of wood that I had downstairs, again something from a thrift store years ago and couldn't figure out what to paint on it and after seeing the Dog's Nose Art sign, I knew what to paint on it.   Again, I have to use funky colours and paint.   So here is what I painted.  :o)

Cats' Nose Art Painting - www.fishinthec.blogspot.com, After playing around with Pinterest, I came across a small sign that stated something about Dog's Nose Art - I thought to myself, we don't own dogs, but we do own 6 kitties, so YES, this sign would be perfect.  I'm a colourful person, so I just HAD to paint it with funky colours and a fancy font.  LOVE IT!!!  www.fishinthec.blogspot.com

And again, searching through Pinterest this morning looking for an idea to hang necklaces.  I liked the ideas they had for using picture frames, but I own A LOT of necklaces.  Over the years I have bought, been given as gifts and inherited some gorgeous necklaces, so the picture frame idea was out.   Then it popped into my head - I have a gorgeous rustic ladder I purchased at a yard sale a few years back at my aunt's house.  I fell in love with it when I saw it and decided to place it out on our front porch.  I brought it in and started placing the necklaces on it.  LOOKS AWESOME!!  Yaaaa, my own Pinterest Idea!!!

Necklace Holder Idea - www.fishinthec.blogspot.com, So, after looking around Pinterest for a good idea on how to store  & hang necklaces, I came up with my own idea.   A rustic ladder.  I have over the years aquired many necklaces, whether it was purchasing, receiving as gifts or inheriting them.   Found this rustic ladder @ a yard sale at my aunt's a few years back which was leaning against a wall in our front porch and it popped into my head today to use it for necklaces, works great!!!  www.fishinthec.blogspot.com
