House Creeper

I headed down to Fort Langley with my beautiful glowing mother to be friend and we went for a walk. We both share a love for unique shopping and beautiful homes. Here is one we creeped on! I love a traditional style home and the setting in their little backyard was so cute.
Fort Langley is so beautiful and the weather played a great part in that.
I could do that every week!

My Wedding Trip

I just got back from a great trip to Winnipeg for one of my best friends wedding. I'm already wanting to plan my next trip to somewhere hot, I left the 34 degree weather to come home to more rain.
Here's a few photo's from the wedding..

The cupcakes were good
The bride was absolutely stunning

Her nephew kept me entertained all week
Of course I have to post the flowers which I brought with me on the plane and did them while I was there

Had so much fun with the ladies
A diva of a flower girl
Best friends
Something Old

It felt like a high school reunion being back and I cherished every minute of it.

Blessings to you Michelle and Jeff
and your new life together!

Inspiring Garden

I love the look of this garden! I know planting season is over but this gives me more ideas for planning for next spring... the house isn't to shabby either. For now I will just sit back and enjoy what I've planted so far.
(If you haven't noticed I'm a sucker for white and green flowers)

Bedroom lighting so far..

I chose 2 of the wall lamps from Ikea for above each bed. They are clean and simple! I'm going to need another table lamp and one floor lamp. Lot's of lighting for this room!

Boys Bedroom Fabric

I finally found some fabric today for the boy's bed. This has been a challenge for me since I wanted the pattern fairly simple so I can add more patterns with curtains and throw cushions. Also, I wanted to find something with more white than grey since the walls are grey and I need to lighten it up in there. Now to start sewing...I think I'll just call my Mom;)

Relaxing isn't something that comes easy to me but maybe if I did this beautiful set up and took a day off with a good book ...sigh.

Side Table

You might remember this table from before. I have just tweeked it a bit to give it a finer finish. The hardware has been changed to something more eclectic and the top now has more of a gloss finish which makes it look more polished.

White Blossoms

When I got off work today I spent as much time as I could outdoors with my boys, playing pirates and digging . I also squeezed into their playtime some planting for my self. I may have an obsession with white and flowers. I planted in mass clumps some Peegee hydrangeas and some Bridalveil Spirea and it rained just in time so I didn't have to do any watering:)

What is new in your gardens this spring?

Boys Bedroom

Wow! What a successful day at the Old School Market. I'm not going to lie I'm a little tired but had so much fun doing it and seeing all the amazing talent out there.
Now on to the projects I've been putting off.
We are working on our boys bedroom and this is all we have so far...
We have the walls painted in Metropolitan by Benjamin Moore and the baseboards are up.
Now to build two of these beds

I can't seem to find any bedding that I like so off to Joanne's Fabric next week to see if I can find something.
I'll keep you posted!

Wedding Season

I love wedding design so much and I'm missing out on it this year as I have decided not to do them at this point in my life.
But that doesn't mean I can't blog about them.
Here is one I just couldn't resist.

When one door closes another one opens

At least that's what we are hoping. My husband and I are going through some major transitions right now and wondering what's next for us??
We have no idea! and that's o.k
So in the meantime I thought I'd share some beautiful black fav for front entrances
