Blink and You'll Miss It

The weekend that is! It all started Friday evening posing as the hostess with the mostess...I held a Tupperware party!! 25 lovely friends came for champers, nibbles and a touch of shopping. Lovely night. Larena our Tupperware lady was great at her job and did her best to deal with a very chatty crowd. The room stood up to furniture rearrangements and accomodated everyone well. By the end of the night I was shattered after a huge week.

And how about mixing a little fashion with decor cool are these! Converse All Stars in Marimekko fabric! (they come in other styles and colours too) Thinking I may need a pair!
Speaking of shoes, I took Maya out to get her first pair of soccer boots. Of course they had to be either pink or purple...

We had a friends 40th last night at another lovely spot. Taking advantage of a clearing in the weather, we drank in the beautiful warm sunset.
 The sun stayed out today so we headed for the pontoon to fit in an hour of one our favourite ways to relax (even though the water was muddy after all of the rain). We reeled in a dozen tiny ones - no keepers - but enjoyed getting some vitamin D! Miss smartypants Maya hooked one everytime she cast in!

Connor had a good week too. I am very proud to say he competed at his first school swimming carnival and has made it to the district carnival! Very much out of his comfort zone and it was a cold miserable summers day so it was an excellent effort!

I had planned to blog more about furniture research, but I really am not up to it tonight. Need to turn in early so I can be up for my run tomorrow early. I missed today due to pure exhaustion and slept in til 10am - can't remember the last time I did that!

Hopefully the craziness of the start of a new school year will calm down soon and I'll have more time to do the decor dreaming I enjoy. I have struggled to even keep up with all of the blogs I usually read religiously. Hope everyone is well though and all builds aren't too affected by the weather. 



  1. Sounds like a wonderful, action packed week!

  2. THe best weekends are busy ones! Love the converse sneakers. My 22 yo daughter has a couple of marimenko pairs, though not high top. Too cute! Great to see successful fishing pics. We love fishing too! Hope you're feeling more rested soon,

    1. It's all good KL! Probably a bit tired from my training too. Have been enjoying keeping up with your purchases and progress.

  3. I love that you are a hostess with the mostest!! I am a BodyShop consultant and the photo's clearly indicate that you are a great hostess. I cannot wait to start inviting people around to our house when it is totally finished and decked out!. Also, are your pool and alfresco paving Travertine? If so what finish. Our pool goes in, in 2 weeks and I need to start arranging all of the paving
