This was the post I wanted to show you Friday but I couldn't upload the images into WordPress. The media event at the IDS show this past weekend was filled with herbs mixed with boxwood and pansies. Here's a glimpse of some Swiss Chard.
I want to send a very special shout to Nour Enayeh. Nour attended the colour course I taught years ago at Vancouver Community College. She, along with Deborah Grech have a new company called La Brocante Furniture.
A creative new way of either selling or refurbishing something old.

This booth I stopped and admired was decorated by Harmony Sense Interiors.

Rosa said that Kelly Deck cross stitched this entire display herself. Rosa was following her on Instagram as she stitched asking if anyone wanted to help, haha.
She did a beautiful job, it was definitely creative and unique.
Here were some other creative tablescapes at the show.
Rosa said I had to be in this colour me happy table!
Terreeia and I had a great time in Seattle. The only glitch was 10 minutes before we got to the hotel on Friday night her car started to overheat! Eeeeek. We barely got there and the next day, had to get the water pump replaced.
On our way home on Sunday we stopped in Fairhaven for a late lunch and I ran into one of the boutiques as we were waiting for our food and tried on these little green Toms sneakers. I felt a little like a leprechaun but I don't care, they were sooo comfortable I could not take them off again.
These are my new glasses, what do you think? I had some other ones (nerd glasses the big ones are called) but I just never liked them, so I found these frames last week and had the lenses transferred.
I have decided the ripped, jean trend is HUGE. When you can buy a pair for $400, that's when you know maybe you should own at least one pair. The ones I'm wearing were on sale for $49.99 at White House | Black Market. They don't look very ripped here but I'm pretty sure these are the ones I bought. Of course they will look better with some heels but it was the end of the shopping day and my Toms felt just like slippers.
Thanks for all your fashion tips the other day!
