Weekend Observations, and a Give-Away!

I hope you had a good weekend!

Here's a bit of what I got up to....

We helped our friend, Isabelle Dunlop, set up her pop-up shop. If you're in the Vancouver area this coming weekend, check it out at 3573 Main Street. I love her red and black plaid coats lined with vintage fabrics. Also on display are some of Robert Edmond's (a.k.a. my husband) paintings. 

Click here if you'd like to check out more of the New Domestic Shop.

I also worked on my new calendar for 2013, and I'm offering one up as a give-away! To enter, just leave me a comment and I'll make a random draw this Friday. Good luck! A limited amount will be for sale in my shop as well. 

Have a good day! Back soon.

Love reading about your adventures and seeing your lovely work. Would be a nice treat to see it everyday in your calendar :) A fellow Vancouverite, Alissa.

Pop up shops have just "pooped up" out of nowhere. Until a year ago I had never heard of one. (maybe it's me whose outdated). I think it is a great idea for newcomers to get their wares out there.

My, what a talented duo you both are.

You had a busy if interesting weekend it seems. :)

Oh, and the paintings from your Hubby look lovely. I believe I have seen one of them at his blog once!?

P.S.: I love your new header.

I love it all: your new blog header photograph, the packaging on your new linen napkins, your friend's shop, your Hubby's paintings (blown away by those - you two sure make a power couple, full of talent) and of course, your gorgeous 2013 calendar! Thrilled to have a shot at winning one!

I've never actually been to a pop-up shop. I know, I can't believe it myself. This one looks fun. ;) Love your husbands racetrack paintings. So refreshingly different. Oh, and I'd sure love to have one of your calendars on my wall. Thanks for the opportunity to win one.

That vintage linen looks gorgeous. So simple but beautiful, and I'm sure so much history. Your calendar looks so fun and your photography is always amazing. That would be a prize for sure. All the best.
