A Charming Tour

                                                            Hello everyone,
               Today, I thought you might like a tour of our friends, Heather and Keith's new home.                                      I took these photos last August and forgot to share them with you then but I
                 am sure you won't mind a summer time tour.
                                                       This is the side porch ~ Heather always finds unique
                                                       little treasures at yard sales and has a real talent for
                                                       displaying them.
                                   It is aprox. 7 years since they built their new home and I love
                                   how nicely the shingles have weathered and the garden has
                                   grown. They also have an amazing view of the water.
                                           What a perfect way to display the birdhouse.

                                                               The front door is a pretty yellow but
                                                               did not come true in my photo.
                                    A side angle of the house~ for some reason I did not take a shot
                                    from front on but next time!
                                    Heather's husband Keith built this charming shed and also did
                                   much of the work on the house himself !

                                                   A bit of a front view.
                                                Love that big sailboat!
                   And the water view where boats are often sailing by in summer.
                                    You might be noticing that Heather and I love many of the
                                    same things. We have been good friends since our children
                                    were small.
                                We both have a good sized collection of red & white as well
                                as blue and white transferware dishes.
                                                 Love the sunny yellow door and the planter.

                    Heather is also a talented artist and has sold many of her paintings at Details
                   on Victoria Row in Charlottetown.

        I have taken pictures of her paintings over the years so this is just a little sample
                  to show you how talented my friend Heather is.

                I shared some more photos a few years ago from indoors if you would like
               to have a peak just click here.

                 I hope you enjoyed a quick tour around Heather and Keith's charming home
                and thank you H & K for letting me share these photos.

                                                                                      Take care,

As Midge would say, Carolyn, y'all are twins separated at birth! Heather's home is fabulous by the water!
I am at a loss for words about her artwork - truly, it is stunning!
Midge's mom always loved sheep (I even have a Pinterest board in her honour of sheep) and so whenever I see sheep it brings back sweet memories of my dear mom-in-law. (I noticed the cute sheep on Heather's windowsill and I always love seeing her sheep cookies. Lol)
I cherish the painting she did of your home for our Christmas Tea and Tour for Lucas a few years ago (Where has the time gone?). I would love to have one of those sheep paintings, the fall colours are gorgeous, and will have to check out that Details gallery. Midge said, "WOW!" when he saw the one with the horse and sheep, so I know he would love it, too.
Thanks for the beauty this morning! I'm off to work. Hope your day is lovely,
Hugs to you and dear Heather,
Linda at Beautiful Ideas

I loved this sweet home and garden shed! Everything about it radiates sunshine. She is an amazing artist! I love the sheep in all of the photos. Does she sell on line? Would love to check her work out more!
