Weekend Observations

I hope you had a nice weekend! I'm still in weekend mode, as it's Victoria Day today. I do love a holiday Monday.

Here's a bit of what went on around here this weekend...

Had a sneak peek at a house designed by Evoke International Design. Landscape design by Considered Design. Styling by McCarthy•Hinder

Popped down to Seattle for a whirlwind day trip, with a couple of good friends. Checked out the European Masters exhibit before it wrapped up, at the Seattle Art Museum. Found ourselves in Fremont, a cute neighbourhood filled with shops and restaurants. Picked up some Swedish clogs at Lambs Ear Shoe Boutique....had to have them. 

If you're in the Vancouver area, you have to check out the Grand Hotel exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery. It's all about the evolution of the hotel. Love it! It's on until September, and I plan to visit several more times. So much to take in and absorb. 

A few links to some of favourite blogs...
• a beautiful modern home in Santa Barbara at Design Elements
• "roughing it" at SF Girl By Bay
• Nanaimo Bar Cupcake anyone? Recipe by Rosie, of Butter Baked Goods, over at Poppytalk. If you're in Vancouver on May 25th, stop by West Elm for the Etsy event and meet Rosie along with several Etsy sellers (I'll be one of them). 

Have a great day!

I loved Victoria's Roughin' it post too! It made me want to skip on over to the lake and buy a cabin of my own! Your day trip in Seattle sounds delightful, Janis! And, thanks for the tip about Vancouver's Grand Hotel exhibition. I'm really hoping to make another visit out to Vancouver this year. I'll definitely keep this one in mind. ;)

I love all the lighting in that home and the interesting use of the map in the bedroom. Love your clogs - I remember having some Finnish ones very similar when I was in high school. I wore them right out. :)
