Happy Valentine’s Day!
This deserves a reshare on the day of love... Most wouldn’t know that in this moment, (and after already unknowingly throwing out an engagement ring on a previous trip to Iceland), I was swearing for Dale to stop getting the “selfie” and get a landscape shot instead! I’m surprised he still went ahead with it all lol 🙈 Love you my Schnucks 💕 Taken in Norway where our @dreamphotographyworkshops is currently underway.

This weekend I was in the mood to take my guitar up into the mountains again. It was super windy, they definitely couldn’t ‘hear’ anything 😂 #highlands What are you in the mood for this weekend? #iceland
SUZIE Q -⠀
Suzie Q likes to sing....⠀
She wonders if the woo woo woo puggy song is the next big thing... ⠀
Little velvet black ears and a curly black tail that waggles with glee...⠀
Suzie Q says please pay attention to me...⠀
Suzie Q has come a very long way with improving behavioural issues left from her sad past...⠀
Working very hard on them everyday whilst in her Pug Rescue foster home the past few months have done fast....⠀
She is still a bit skittish and whilst she has toned it down she will still scream when she doesn't want to be alone...⠀
But she has nearly learnt not run and scamper and scare...⠀
And that coming to humans when called is good instead of darting back and forth everywhere....⠀
And she has also learnt to sit when asked and also wait...⠀
Which we think is great....⠀
Airway surgery including widening of her nostrils and soft palate resection as well as a dental and a vaccination at @knoxvetclinic done... ⠀
Means her teeth are sparkling, breath is fresh and after surgery rehab in her foster home including crate resting and hand feeding she has now recovered and doesn't gasp for air when she runs...⠀
Lots of baths and brushes too... ⠀
As when a girl is making a fresh start on life they always need a new hairdo... ⠀
Enjoys playing with a soft toy or two...⠀
And loves deer antlers to chew...⠀
Suzie Q has always lived with other pugs...⠀
She adores the companionship of her foster pug siblings, learning so much from them whilst also enjoying having them to snuggle up to and hug...⠀
So she can't wait to find her very own furever puggy friend to spend her days...⠀
To both cuddle up to and have a play...⠀
A little girl with a big heart...⠀
Suzie Q can't wait to make a fresh start...⠀

• ♥ • I came to a point where I needed solitude and just stop the machine of thinking and enjoying what they call living, I just wanted to lie in the grass and look at the clouds. • Jack Kerouac •
Some scenes from the back porch over the past few weeks, you never know who is going to show up.
2. A very cool encounter with a curious young bobcat.
3. A 3 year old black bear who has been coming by for the past few years according to the neighbours.
4. A very hungry pacific banana slug.
5. Some curious and brave raccoons.
6. Some deer out for a swim (maybe to remove ticks?)
7. A bald eagle with a fresh catch from the ocean.
It was nice to have all their company during the lockdown. As well as the time to be home and observe, picking up on all the changes, big and small.
Would you sail on this?

Sand is overrated. It's just tiny little rocks ⛱
Today I got to meet Skye who’s being fostered by a wonderful foster family through Paws for Hope . She’s a deaf dog so it’s definitely a challenge to communicate but her foster have worked with her and I believe she listens better than my dogs 😂.
If fostering interests you please look in to it through @paws_for_hope it’s definitely a rewarding thing to do.
Digging up my unprocessed shots i came across this jewel of a shot from the workshop in the Oregon coast
Enjoy your week.

La Maison Rose • Paris, France • c. 1850
Affectionately known as “The Pink House”, La Maison Rose in the Montmarte district of Paris is a pleasantly pink restaurant lauded for its facade and fascinating history as a once a popular haunt frequented by some of Paris’ greatest artists - including Pablo Picasso
At one time, Montmarte was a village separate from Paris with windmills, homes, and vineyards gracing its picturesque hilltop. Built around 1850, the home that would go on to house La Maison Rose was bought by Germaine Pichot around the turn of the century. The wife of artist of Catalan painter Ramon Pichot and a former model of Picasso, Germaine was a magnetic figure who attracted many of the city’s creative crowd
Germaine socialized with the likes of Maurice Utrillo, Albert Camus, Matisse, and Picasso. Carlos Casegamas, a close friend of Picasso, fell in love and relentlessly pursued Germaine. Despite her refusals, Carlos persisted. Scorned by rejection, he ended up committing suicide. When Picasso heard of Carlos’ death, it’s said he became depressed and began his blue period of work
Despire Carlos’ tragic death, the story of Germaine and her beloved La Maison Rose continued on. The house was eventually painted its signature pink after Germaine & Ramon visited Catalonia, Spain where they were inspired by the towns’ brightly colored homes. In the 1930s, Maurice Utrillo immortalized La Maison Rose in his painting “La maison rose à Montmartre“
Germaine owned La Maison Rose until her death in 1948. The restaurant passed down through the hands of different Montmarte locals who remained faithful to the establishment’s origins as a neighborhood cafe. Eventually it was purchased by Laurence Miolano, the grandchild of its former owner Beatrice, who has since restored the restaurant to its former glory

On the rooftop terrace of the 'MAS Penthouse', we continued the Travertine stone from the interior, covering the terrace, the steps and the long floating bench leaning against the swiming pool. The living green wall completes the 'holiday home' atmosphere. #dietervandervelpenarchitects
