I hope you had a great weekend. If you're in Canada, you're probably still in weekend mode due to "civic" holidays. I'm heading out for a mini camping trip but, before I hit the road, here's a little of what my weekend looked like....
Checked out Duchesse, a lovely new "vintage and such" shop located in Chinatown. If you're in the Vancouver area, it's definitely a must see. Owners Anna McLean and Anna Maclellan, have put together a fantastic collection of vintage clothing, accessories, home wares, and furniture. The shop was designed by their friend, Ricky Alvarez. The shop itself has so many inspiring design ideas.
I love the chevron wall, made with various tones of plywood.
A great shelving unit made of old school chairs, showcases vintage office accessories, shoes and lamps.
Played around with a sunography kit. Have you every tried sunography? I did a little of this kind of printing as a kid. I still think it's magical. You just lay an object on top of the paper and allow to sit in full sun for about 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water and, voila, you have a print.
Made a few origami boxes for tea lights in the back yard. I love the glow of colour.
What did you get up to this weekend? If you're in Vancouver, did you manage to check out the Pride parade? Heard it was a good one!
I'll be back next Friday. Until then, have a good week!
