Sunday Observations

How are you all doing? Hope you're enjoying your weekend, where ever you are. I just watched the Canucks win game 4 in the Western Conference final. 5 more wins to go!

Besides watching hockey, I got up to a few other things today....


That was my Sunday. What did you do? Anyone out there watching hockey these days? ;)

Back soon!

your weekend looks both pretty and productive! Loving your poppies and pendant light and I think I need to add some casters onto something :)
No hockey to watch here but I did go sofa shopping which was a huge thrill!

Love your yellow blooms display! So fresh and invigorating for a Monday morning! Glad you had a good weekend!

All lovely, and I'm particularly impressed by the ingenious lightshade, which must throw pretty shadows as well.

Loving the 2'nd picture from the top, so thrifty! I always like diy & under-5$ projects!

I ain't able to watch the canadian Hockey games. Here the people are more fans of Soccer/Football, so the tv stations do not really show a lot of Ice hockey. :(
'was only able to catch the end game of 2011 men's world chamionship where Finland won. :D

P.S.: Happy Victoria Day, I hope you are having a fun time!

whoa ho ho! love the lighting diy there! just sneaking that in are you and not sharing? : )

and yay canucks!!! that game was so much better than the one before.

Pinecone Camp said...

Yup. I guess I did just sneak it in, Jan! Allow me to explain: I snipped a little slot at the bottom of the basket and just threaded the "hemma" (thanks ikea!) through the top. Ea-sy. I may attached some ribbon trimmings to the bottom now, as it's going to one of my nieces. Next time, a proper d.i.y.!

Pinecone Camp said...

Hey Pink Panthess - go Finland! I happen to love international hockey as well. ;)
I'm happy to hear the yellow poppies are a hit. They grow all over our garden, and we've never actually planted any. I love that when that happens!
