Weekends are Lovely

What a lovely weekend. I'm feeling extra grateful today for having such a good life. The weather is absolutely delightful for the beginning of October and the trees are shedding the most gorgeous golden leaves. This is absolutely my favourite season.

Jack and I took the weekend completely to ourselves. He is tackling a set of vintage oak dining chairs (a little Lather Creations guest-designing!) and I have spent it working on sewing projects, having coffee with two dear friends, sleeping in, dying my roots (okay - some things just NEED to be done!), making baked treats and reading my new Design*Sponge book (which I pre-ordered back in August!). Design*Sponge holds a special place in my heart because Grace gave me a chance and published my Winnipeg City Guide last winter, the book is a dream - filled with house peeks, DIY projects and furniture make-overs - it's super inspiring if you're into that kind of thing :)

I have lots to share with you this week - like baking and doing nice things for people, my latest sewn creations, some reviews on the online shopping I did with Modcloth and Asos and the easiest way to tie a scarf...ever!

How is your weekend going friends? I hope you are enjoying it, savouring the beauty of fall and feeling happy...


  1. that book and decorate are on my christmas list! i want them both- love the style of both! fall weekends are my fave! sawyer had a soccer game yesterday and it was 55 degrees, cloudy, and what i consider perfect fall weather... i had a big coffee with me and couldn't have been happier. plus, seing the utter joy on his face when sawyer plays is the best

  2. Oooh! Did you partake in a little modcloth sale?? I did!! I swear I could fill my closet with all the stuff I've bought from there!!!

  3. Fun!!! I just received my Design*Sponge book this weekend too. Can't wait to dive in!
