In the midst of a long, cold winter, I find that I tend to spend more time reading than any other time of year. I recently purchased the book "Romantic Style" by Selina Lake and Sara Norrman.
There isn't much NOT to LOVE about this book ~ especially if
you're a die-hard romantic such as myself!
Inspiration = Tweaking Time at Suburban Retreat!
With Sping just around the corner, I've decorated the top of my
china cabinet in a Romantically Gardenish style!
I hung my rose print just above my cabinet, filling in that narrow
space between the crown molding and the top of the china cabinet.
I draped some pretty silk hydrangeas over the edge ...
And used a tall wire cloche.
Throw in a couple of cement garden pheasants ....
And there you have
Romantically Gardenish Style!
Chris is from Washington State, USA and when I learned she would be traveling to the Greater Toronto Area, well, I was EXCITED! Chris was one of the first people from Blogland that extended a helping hand to me and we've been Blog Buddies ever since!
So obviously ... lunch was in order!
|Failte Irish Pub|
|Mrs. Red Gate Farm Herself!|
Chris came with her daughter Krysta and Krysta's boyfriend Sten!
|Krysta - Dropped Stitch Knitter|
The food was delicious, the conversation was lively and the afternoon was fabulous! It was my pleasure spending time getting to know these lovely people and Sten, we're all anxiously waiting for you to jump into Blogland with both feet!
|Sten ... Future Blogger???|
I understand he brews a mean Beer!
There were plans underway for a couple of other Bloggers to get in on the fun but unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes.
I would love to do something like this again so if anyone out there would be interested in a Blogger's Get-Together in the GTA, feel free to contact me and maybe something can be arranged again, when the weather improves!
Cheers ~ Lisa
