Bon Voyage Ma Soeur!

Today my sister is moving from Montreal to London. She will be attending graduate school... She has sold most of her belongings and will start fresh. Good luck Steph! Make sure you keep your blog up-to-date, so we can know how you are doing.

1 Year in our house...

I can't believe we have been in our house for a year now! That is insane! I thought we would have had more done, but... oh well.

If you like this card - you can buy it on etsy here.

Have a great Monday everybody!

Hooded Baby Towels

A couple weeks ago, I bought this great fabric with intentions on sewing hooded baby towels to give to my friends that are having babies. Well, when my mom was visiting last weekend, I finished one (with her help of course). It turned out really well! So, if you are my friend and having a baby - you know what you are getting. My plan is to make one this weekend too. I have to get better at sewing... I had to pick out many of the seams before I was satisfied with the quality.

Yes - I did notice that I cut out the animals upside down... When I was in junior high home economics class, I made a great hoodie with a snoopy pattern. When I cut the sleeves, I cut the pattern upside down. You would think I would have learned from this experience... but apparently not. My sister thinks it should be my trademark :)

Pillow Splurge!

I have been looking for log shaped pillows for my two leather club chairs. I have been keeping my eye on this Sakura Butterfly silk and cotton cushion and today I saw that the etsy seller had 2 in stock! I had to have them! I am so excited! I have no clue if db is going to like them... hehehe oppps!
Shyvioletdesign's etsy shop has lots of other beatiful pillows (the pillow insert only cost $5.00 more... great deal).
I know I owe pictures of the bathroom... tomorrow I promise!

Work and Play

Wow! I can't believe we are into September already! Where did the summer go? For the long weekend, I went to Nanaimo for a baseball tournament. db decided not to go because of his back... he received his results - it is a protruded disc. Yikes! He is off to a sports physio therapist next week - so hopefully that helps!

On Wednesday my parents arrived! Yeah! I had 2 jobs for my dad to do while he was here: 1) fix the stove as the right side of the stove doesn't work 2) fix the dishwasher. Of course my dad has already fixed the stove and is in the process of fixing the dishwasher! I love dads :)

Yesterday was my parent's 32nd wedding anniversary! They went golfing at Bear Mountain during the day. Then we went to the Canoe Club for a wonderful dinner! Today the plan is to go to Jordan River and look at some land that they may buy. Lucky for us the weather has been beautiful. For the rest of the weekend, we have no concrete plans, but probably a little shopping will be involved!

On the home front, the bathroom is done! WOOT! I will post pictures next week. Okay - I cheated a little bit - I had to get my dad to help finish it. It feels great to have it completly finished!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
