Seen & Scene

by - Monday, July 22, 2013

This was my favourite kind of summer weekend: weather that is warm but not hot, days that mix fun activities and relaxation, and time spent with family and friends. What more could you ask for? Maybe a longer weekend! They go by way too fast.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a few of these already but here's some pics of  life lately...

Floral crowns are the new chevron. I'm seeing them everywhere! I attended an event for Etsy Canada (more on that later this week) and we made a DIY floral crown as taught by Jordan de Ruiter. One thing is for sure: I could not make my living as a crafter. Getting the flowers just right was stressful!

'Tis the season for holiday previews. I've been invited to a few media previews lately but I'll spare you the photos for now. I'm sure no one wants to think of the holidays when the sun is still beating down on us and you're reaching for your next crushed ice drink. But here's one thing that caught my eye: the Groove Chair from Urban Barn in Kendal Topaz Fabric. It'll be in stores from September 1st. I'm really digging the oversized pattern, the contrast piping, and the plum tones. So divine.

The whole family got into a bit of DIYing this weekend. We're working on a project along with a few other bloggers for The Home Depot's Summer DIY Challenge but there might be a TV crew here soon to film part of the build so I can't share too much. There's a sneak peek in the last photo but you'll have to wait to see our grand plans ;)

And how was your weekend?
