new


I am still slowly trying to update my blog from my long absence. If you read and are not on my link list and do not have a private blog please leave me a comment. I want to add you!!

It's been cold here again. I hate being cold. It's hard to come up with many reasons why we choose to live here other than those we love are here... especially in January. I dream of being somewhere warm. On Friday it will be one week till I am
in Vancouver! A bunch if girlfriends from my ywam days are meeting for a fun filled weekend. It's amazing how it all came together and how many of use from all over will be there. I can't wait. To walk down the drive, drink coffee, eat sushi and catch up and maybe warm up a bit too. I know it's not tropical or anything but it's going to be warmer than here.

One of my goals for 2010 was to be more crafty. I have so many projects I dream of and often put off till I loose interest. You may laugh but I have been r
eally into doilies lately.. I know I know makes you think of your grandma. To me they scream vintage chic. Anyways inspired by Rachel's Pillow post and Ashley's table runner.. I made a table runner from lovely doilies all found at our loc
al thrift store for under a dollar each. My husband dislikes it but I love it.

As a wedding gift we got one of my great grandma's doilies framed with a cool modern square frame, and a nice neutral matte board background. It's really pretty, and everyone always compliments how it utilizes old with new. Just an idea. I think it would be neat to do some framed with those types of frames that show the wall colour through it.
