Britain Royal Wedding

They will be in the Calgary Stampede Parade, Friday, July 8th 2011… I am thinking I should attend the parade this year… it’s walking distance from my condo.  I will regret not going for sure, keeping the date open for now.  What do you think, would you go if you were me?

Someone even painted little pots with chalkboard paint, they look so good.  Totally wonderful vignette with the basket of apples…

Let’s play a game of…can you guess who lived here?


A jaw-dropping listing…for sure…first hint is the look of this house!

Location: Washington, D.C.  another hint!
Price: $6,995,000


But there's the issue of price. The house has been on the market well over a year and endured a million-dollar price cut.

Entertaining & family are perfect partners in this gracious home. The flow of the house cannot be surpassed, and every room is versatile and inviting….

Any guess whose house this was ? I maybe Canadian but I truly loved this man and his family…

The elegant living room glows with light through the French doors that lead to the terrace & secluded garden.


The stunning dining room is the setting for a dinner for 2 or a banquet for 50+ flowing into the adjacent sunroom.

How I would have loved to been invited for dinner in this room…

image image


The essence of the before/after dinner gatherings is the library with its secret hideaway leading to the indoor pool.




I can totally see healthcare speeches being written in this room…



The spacious, bright eat-in kitchen is a gourmet's delight, & the family room provides space for playing and dining.


Looking at this room I wonder if his famous brothers son ever visited and stayed in this room?


Hint in this room, on the mantel top and above, if you know anything about this man… you might catch on…


again hint above the television…

The 6 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms & walk-in closets are distinct havens for family & guests.
