Right Here Right Now

I'm coming to you quite late with this month's Buffet, but with good reason, I promise.  My eldest daughter is getting married on Saturday and I've been so busy with the planning and prep that it hasn't left a whole lot of time for designing.  The design work has definitely taken a back seat recently. … Continue reading Right Here Right Now

Par for the Course

A new month means a new Buffet!  This month the colour palette just screamed golf to me. Although I'm not a golfer, my husband sure is.  He's either playing it or watching it or talking to his friends about it.  (That is, when it's not hockey season of course!)  At one point we had reached … Continue reading Par for the Course

Toothless Grin

Happy Friday!  Toothless Grin was inspired by youngest daughter, who recently lost her first two teeth within a day of each other.  It was a very exciting couple of days at our house.  That tooth fairy sure had to scramble for some loonies and toonies  (that's one and two dollar coins for you non-Canadians out … Continue reading Toothless Grin

In Vino Veritas

Hello!  I'm here today to show off my latest collection to you.  In Vino Veritas sums up nicely the fun I have with my friends... laughing together, being silly together, and enjoying some great wine together.  We take an annual trip to the Okanagan which is the wine country of southern/central British Columbia.  To be … Continue reading In Vino Veritas
