Weekend Observations

Are you ready for the week? Did your weekend go by as fast as mine? Yikes. Here's a bit of my weekend....

I had to create a card for my mom, to let her know that we are taking her to Las Vegas for her birthday. I've only been once, ages ago, but did find these pics that I took of old motels. I was obsessed with them. Las Vegas looked so cute and innocent, way back then. ;)




Worked on images of Lily Ellis' (Birch and Bird) home that we shot for HGTV.ca. Here's a sneak peek for now...


Did a some grocery shopping down at Granville Island. The aqua ferry is the handiest mode of transportation.....


That was my weekend. What did you get up to? Please share!

Back soon,
janis

Love the pics of Granville Island! Reminds me of my trip their two summers ago. Sigh...I miss it terribly!
Love the Las Vegas pic...you're Mom is one lucky lady :)
I had a busy weekend too. It flew by!
I spent Friday at the Kitchen Bath and Reno Show in Winnipeg - had a nice little chat with Tommy Smythe! I'm still on cloud nine! xo
I also got a little dinner and a movie night in with a friend, had a birthday party and went shopping and out for supper with my mom. Like I said...it flew by!

Those old neon signs from Las Vegas are classic... love them!! So looking forward to seeing more of Lily's home. I see she purchased one of the Es I was coveting at Fieldstone Market {sigh}. I've asked her to search for another vintage E just for me!!
