Joyeux Noël

Monday, December 24, 2012

The cutest little Charlie Brown Christmas tree that ever lived in downtown Ottawa. My first hotel room Christmas. Its cozy in here and cold and white outside. Just how we like it.

This is what the holiday season brings. So grateful to have this delightful space to relax in.

Found this amazing piece of fabric at the Junction Flea this morning. Vintage Sanderson. It was a full length curtain belonging to an old home ec teacher. She has perfectly finished two yards of the stuff. It is a lovely thick linen. Not sure what it will become yet. For now an extra bedspread or very soon, a throw on the new couch I'm waiting to be delivered.


Sewing Service

Saturday, October 13, 2012

I'd been looking at this table for weeks, trying to figure out what colour would suit it as the wood veneer was chipping and worn. I tossed around red, white, yellow but then finally settled on shiny olive green. I like that it has a little punch. It's quite a contrast to the wall now, but it's growing on me.


Second Spring

Saturday, May 26, 2012

I think it's the second spring since I started writing this blog. I'm reminded of how much I love the light in my kitchen at this time if year and how lucky I am to have such a whimsical space to call my own. I'm going to endeavor to write more as the summer unfolds. Toronto is full of many dear people and lots of adventures.


Pageant Party

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

I'm in Halifax working on another play. it's called Pageant and I get to wear fancy tiaras and glorious gowns. There are a few twists and turns as I spend the second act with my face entirely obscured by bandages due to some botched plastic surgery. I've been collecting pictures of beauty queens and pageants on Pinterest. I get a real kick out of the people who repost my images sincerely adding them to their "My Style" boards.
I'm quite partial to this old old gem however. Miss Canada has the best shoes of all. Who knew Canada was a state!
