Friday Find–June 28th

I know it’s almost July, but today’s find is more about keeping warm and dry after all the rain we’ve had today in Ottawa.

This is what I want – a hot toddy (a glass of red wine will do), a warm fire and a good book!

Happy Weekend…Donna

To welcome summer …

I would love to spend a lazy summer afternoon right here with a good book, a gentle sea breeze and the sound of the waves lapping the shore.

Happy Weekend … Donna

I miss my blog …

I was looking through some of my old blog posts today and reminiscing about how eager and inspired I was about blogging.  Since my first post back in April of 2009 blogging has been the source of so much good in my life.  I have met some amazing people, both online and in person.  I’ve been inspired by so many other blogs and their authors, and I hope that I’ve inspired others with the content of my blog.  


Over the course of these four years my commitment to blogging has waned.  With the advent of so many social media tools, there is only so much time one can spend online.  I suppose mine online time has shifted somewhat to Facebook and Twitter, not to mention the fun I’m having over on the TBB Wine Dine and Design blog.

But I miss my blog!  I miss the creative process.  I miss the interaction with commenters and readers.  I miss hoping that I’m inspiring just one person out there.

So in an effort to re-commit to my blog, I’m re-instating a favourite of mine – Friday Finds!

Tomorrow will be the first of many …. so stay tuned!

An Inspirational Series!

Over on the TBB blog, which I share with 5 very talented Ottawa decorators, we have just finished a series of guest posts featuring four of Canada's leading designing women.  These women shared with us their Colour, Fabric & Style forecasts for 2013 and let me tell you, I have been INSPIRED!  I know you will be too, so check them out:

  • Kimberley Seldon gives us a glamorous "Gatsby" inspired palette
  • Carol Reed shares a colour scheme that takes on cottage full of wood
  • Sharon Grech paints the picture of a soothing seaside bedroom
  • Margot Austin pairs tartan with ivy to comes up with a stunning result
I would love to hear which is your favourite!  I know I can't pick just one ...
Happy Decorating!
