Happy Black Friday!

Use the coupon code HOLIDAY2011 in checkout.

I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday weekend.  I'm feeling rejuvenated.  Yesterday I went out and bought paint samples for our livingroom.  I always like to paint a sample board(s) to test the colours in different areas and different light before I paint.  I haven't painted a room for a while and it feels good to be back thinking about design and decor especially since it's for our house.  I'm doing something a little different than I have in the past.  I'm planning to go with very neutral walls and bring out the colours in my pillows, accessories, etc.  I can't live in a monochromatic space - I have to live in colour - but I thought pops of colour might be fun. This also allows me flexibility to change things around over the year.  I've taken the 'before' pictures so hopefully I will have some after pictures to show in the coming weeks.

Have a great one!

Cool Treats!

I'm not sure what happened to November as it just seems to be flying by.  I seem to be going a million different directions lately and not quite feeling accomplished in any of my endeavours. Such is life I suppose and the time of year.  

There is definitely a chill in the air this morning so it does feel like winter might be on it's way but it's bright and sunny.  I really don't remember a nicer November.  Usually it's cold and rainy.

This morning I was thinking about our trip to NYC and this fabulous store we came across while walking in Greenwich Village.   It's called Popbar at 5 Carmine Street.

How much fun is that?!! They make the best handcrafted Gelato on a Stick.  The flavour choice is amazing and the taste is outstanding.  I had pistachio dipped in chocolate and crushed pistachios. Yum!

New York, New York

In a bit of a daze today after a whirlwind trip to New York with my hubby...but a lovely daze it is. It's amazing how much you can pack into a short time...dinners, Wicked, Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Plaza, Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, Hot Pretzels, Shopping, Bryant Park (one of my favourite spots), taxis, subways, Grand Central Station, Greenwich Village, walking and more walking.

Here are some pics from our first day.

...and now I must get ready for my show this weekend.  I've got the Wicked Soundtrack's always fun to play the music really loud when no one else is home.

If you have a chance come visit me at the Victoriana Show this Saturday, Novembr 12th 11a.m. - 6 p.m., in Cobourg at the Best Western.
