Ok, I have to admit, I may have over reacted. The PM explained the "woofie photo" and now I feel stupid for being so melodramatic. It seems like the D-O-G belonged to the owners of the cottages who lived on the property. This is their dog who came to visit the cottagers. She was in the PM's cottage for some attention and she was smiling because she had just eaten two Ritz crackers. I guess she was a real sweet dog and the PM said if she was going to have a dog, she would want one just like her. I never knew this was even an option. Not right now though, I have been told.

Moving on quickly....

I wanted to show you the PM's favorite spot on PEI. It is a little artsy fishing village called "Victoria-by-the-Sea".

It is a quaint little village with a wonderful cafe, chocolatiers and a playhouse.



Sweet homes and lots of charm. There are two artists-in-residence that the PM checks out. One works with glass and has a studio in the post office.



The other is the studio gallery of Doreen Foster. She is a wonderful artist whose medium is etching and watercolour.





You walk into the studio and Doreen is there working away, covered in ink, listening to Leonard Cohen. The PM feels like that must be the perfect life. The PM allows herself to buy one thing while away and it is normally art, pottery or jewellery. She would have loved to have bought another print, the wee-est one has one in her room but she settled on three cards. She would have had too hard of a time picking just one print anyway.

She is going to frame them and use them as the inspiration for her bathroom redo. She does that a lot, framing cards. That gives you the beauty of the art but on a limited budget. This is one of her favorites.



Now it will take her a few days to get her head out of the clouds, fantasizing that she too is an artist living on the sea. I tell her you have to find beauty in your back yard and be creative whenever you can.

All that deep thinking is really too much for me, I need a really long nap now.
