Weekend Mode

It's Victoria Day in Canada, so the weekend is still on. Love holiday Mondays. Happy Birthday Queen Victoria!

My niece is currently sitting beside me, working on her writing project, asking me about Terry Fox and how to spell "institute". I hope I've spelled it correctly ;)

This is a bit of what's gone on this weekend....

By the way, I don't believe in ironing pillow cases.  Way too much work.



Frames found at Stepback. My husband painted the woman enjoying a mai tai. Not sure if it was a mai tai, but I like to think it was.

What did you get up to this weekend? Still enjoying the weekend?

Have a good day! Back soon.

Looks like a great weekend that was also productive! I spent a lot of time outside which was amazing soaking up fresh air and sun.

Happy Victoria day to you.

So adore the lantern in the powder room... and it fits the theme of that print.

I would never iron pillow cases either. Why? -They're going to get rumpled anyway. :D

my pillowcases always look better after they're slept on, somehow. no need to iron, just squash overnight. that yellow may be different, but i suspect it is the same as i used for a handbag i made once, like pale sunshine. happy victoria day! will be coming to you live, soon x

Oh my, I love the pillowcases that you sewed! :) said...

Looks like you used your extra day well. Wish I could say the I allowed myself to be lazy. ;) Love the lantern, Chinatown photo and your hubs painting. Curious about the "smash"...

what a fun weekend for you! I enjoyed every moment; gardening and hanging out with friends. I have been working from home the past week, so I feel as if on holiday even though I am working. Just working in my comfy clothes!!

Birch + Bird said...

Fun fun! Looove your powder room pics and lantern and I can honestly say I have never ironed pillow case or other piece of bedding in my life...and I'm pretty sure I never will! Can't wait to see you very soon :)

What a beautiful weekend Janis!
I love those pillow cases - def don't iron mine either!
I also think your bedroom is super lovely. Those new frames work so nice hung over the bed. xo
I hung out with my nephew, finished up a book I was reading, went for lots of walks and tested out instagram for the first time. Yay!
Hope you have an awesome week!

Sounds like a busy weekend. I love Buck wheat pancakes. I ran out of flour awhile ago and nerv bought more. I must now!

Your husbands photo is really great! Indeed it must be a mai tai.

Have a great week Janis!

Looks like you had a a fab weekend. Those pancakes look delicious! Really nice painting by your man ... lots of talent in your family :)

This past weekend I enjoyed the last few days with visitors, my aunt and uncle from Calgary. Weather was nice and we had lots of fun as we showed them around the Frankfurt area.

Have a great week :)
