In May 2011, after four years of life on McNutt's Island, we moved to Montreal. This blog remains, though, as a (sort of) daily record of our time on the island, and a winding path for anyone who would like to meander about among its magical places. For additional perspectives and insights I recommend Greg's book, Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia (2010), and my Bowl of Light (2012). I'll continue to post once in a while. If you do want to read this blog, one option would be to begin at the beginning of it (which is, as we all know, in blog-world, at the end), and read forward, concluding with the most recent entry. It's a journal, really, so it does makes more sense if you read it that way. But, you know, read it any way you like.

google chairs

There were eighteen wooden chairs in the house when we arrived. I couldn't imagine how we would use so many chairs. Some were beyond help, but slowly Greg has refinished most of them. He finished the last four today.
I wonder what we will do with them.

Those chairs are wonderful - they would look great for a picnic outdoors - or indoors - I love the colors.

Those chairs are just luscious Anne. Greg did a great job. Inspires me to get going on the press back high chair I have from when my grandson was a tiny child - he's eighteen now and that chair was vintage when I bought it for him - no tray on the front - it draws right up to the table and served him until he was 8 or 9.

If it was me, I would take a picture of them and send it to Country Living magazine. :)
