Weekend Observations

Wow, it's a very windy start to the week, here in Vancouver. Yikes. Did you all have a good weekend? Hope so!

Here's a bit of what I got up to (includes a little work)....






What did you get up to this weekend? Have a lovely Monday!

Back soon,
Janis

Happy Monday to you Janis!
I'm loving this butterfly gift-wrap topper. So clever and whimsical.

It IS windy this morning - did it wake you up at 3am?

Love the origami butterfly as a bow. We are all over the origami right now at our house.

This weekend? Gallery, coffee, soccer in the basement, and a THREE, yes THREE hour nap.

Love the paper and the bow...very original and pretty.

It has been windy everywhere. We were in the Bahamas and a red flag almost every day, plus our flight home was crazy....coming into Toronto my daughter was sobbing...she was so scared. The plane was bobbing and dipping. If the flight attendants had been allowed to serve, I would have given her a few stiff drinks....

Windy indeed! It is scary when you have tall trees around you. Just waiting to hear that "crack".
Lovely images once again Janis. Spent Sunday cleaning and arranging in the barn. I might feel a sale coming on.

I had a lovely weekend thanks! The sun was shining big time in Londontown. Hope the winds have dropped - stay safe, Janis!

i love that little boy's room, so cool. I'm not a fan of kid = primary colours. xx

Missing Goat said...

well, my back went out, so I did a lot of staring...watched some birds...I think you know how I felt.
Very pretty antique shots and I love your butterfly. Sorry we didn't get to see you today. We did end up losing our power for half the day from the wind.

A goldfish... that's something the boys are currently begging for. Jason's allergic to everything else, so they're hoping this idea may fly.

What a cute gift wrapping job! How did I never think to use origami as present toppers. Genius

Laura Bear said...

Oh love the grey half wall paint job for a boys room.. So inspiring per usual over here.
