I started my day with my Mixed Media Class at Emily Carr with Patricia, and we expected afterwards to visit Heather Ross in House on 4th Ave in Vancouver. We ran into Terry Harrison, an instructor we both had at design school, as we left our class. We all took in a popular all day breakfast at the Omlettery on Granville. Only half a block away, we visited Heather’s open house, where I met another designer friend April Tidey from my last job…and we all knew each other somehow…that’s serendipity for you! The connections go even deeper, but I won’t bore you with the details. I love the way we just ended up in the same place at the same time today…do you ever have those days…where things line up just the way they should?
I bought these at Heather Ross in House…a sea urchin ceramic box, a teak tray with polished stainless steel bottom, and these two adorable plastic reindeer, which I cannot wait to put out!
I’m off to decorate my mom’s house for Christmas while they are in Vegas…a 3 hour ferry, 3 hour drive, and I’m in Ucluelet…please pray for rain, not snow…I hate driving in the snow!
Here’s my to-do list for mom’s! The highlighter are the areas I am working on. I know, it’s a mite bit early to decorate for Christmas, but she has her Christmas party early in December, and I DID see the first tree up today in someone’s living room! I know…sick! It’s greenery inside and out, thick red velvet ribbons, woodpiles and painted sticks…I’ll post picks when I return.
