Same to you! Love your decor.


I love your decor - it's great!


Hope you had a great one!

I got a chuckle out of your gardening tools illustrated for Halloween. Yeah, it’s been two weeks now, and our four pumpkin faces are drooping on the top of our compost pile. I should take a picture, it looks meaningful somehow.

We enjoy your blog. Please visit ours—we do our gardening on Gabriola Island, off the coast of British Columbia, Canada.

Our daughter, Hedgehog, dressed up a Bloom from the Winx Club TV show. Bloom is a flower fairy, as far as I can tell, with magical powers. My wife Sara stayed up the night before in order to sew her costume. The wings were obtained from a novelty shop in Vancouver.

We also have a nine-year-old boy, Jim, who dressed as a pirate. I guess he really liked the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Well, I think that Johnny Depp does a terrific job in those.

If you do visit our blogsite, please leave a comment.

Tim, Sara, and the kids
