Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 11th day of May, 2014.

Happy Mother’s Day.

It is bright and sunny here in Edmonton and I wish it to be beautiful weather for all the Mothers on our beautiful planet Earth.

I would like to say first off, thank you to my Mom.

She is no longer with us but I feel her strength in my essence every single day.

She instilled in me to have kindness and compassion to all others.

She also instilled in me to work hard and to always do the best job you can.

My grandmothers.

Unfortunately my maternal Grandmother passed when I quite young but I know she was a shy, kind, dear woman.

My paternal Grandmother was the one who taught me to love all kinds of music, to dance, to bake, to be interested in learning, to give to others and her love of jewellery and fashion.

I would say that I am no where near the “fashionista” that she was …. that is for sure.

Our Mothers teach us so much and we in turn pass on what we have learned.

So on this special day we celebrate our Mothers …. the ones who gave us birth, and to those who tend to all the children of the Earth.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Special Hello to: my sister who is a great Mom …..

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 18th day of February, 2014.

It is a beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

Feels like spring ….

Just from watching some of the shows on television – I can see the insertion of the new colours for spring.

They are talking brilliant and muted pastels.

I love pastels although they for the most part do not love me.

But that does not stop me from purchasing some and proudly displaying them anyway.

So thought for the day ….. do not be afraid to wear something just because it may not be “your colour” ….

If it makes you feel good – wear it.

I love me some “baby blue”  …… that colour is my favourite pastel.

I hope that you have an amazing day …. enjoy your colours.

Special Hello to: all those fashion lovers out there who take a chance and be bold.

Always, Carol and Alvin
