Blog Award



Barbara, over at hodge:podge passed on the Versatile Blogger Award to me! You’ll want to check out her inspiring blog. Barbara is also one of the amazing woman behind Canadian Design & Lifestyle Bloggers West. Looking forward to meeting them all in person next week! If you’re a westcoast blogger, you can join too! Thanks Barbara!

Part of the deal is that I’m supposed to tell you seven things about myself… so here goes:

1. I have BIG feet. Size 11.5A shoes. Try shopping for those! The only way I can find shoes… Winners, Ingledews Outlet, and cross border shopping at Nordstrom Rack. Do you like how my awesome new apron distracts you from the huge feet below?

2. I have faith that life has a purpose, and that there is always hope.

3. I’ve been married for 13 fabulous years and counting… I got married at 21! If you’re keen to know how old I am, here’s the part where you can do some math… ; )

4. Tofino is my one of my favorite places on earth. Right up there with France. I learned to surf in Tofino. Can’t wait to go back this summer!

5. Twitter. For the longest time I didn’t get it. Now I’m tweeting. And I get it. If you are too, come find me! @flutterflutters (note the s on the end)

6. Pinterest is another thing I didn’t think I had time for… hahahahaha! Ya, I’m really happy I got over that! You really must join me there… : )

7. And last but not least, today is my BIRTHDAY! I got woken up by the boys as they jumped up and down saying “Present Time Mommy, present time!!” I’m a pretty lucky lady.

Passing on the award to: So Much to Love, Little Pin Cushion Studio, Walking the Rocks, Sadie + Stella, Stellacake.

Thanks for visiting me here! Your comments make my day!!

Chair & Pillow Fabric for the Master



So, I know that you may have forgotten that I’m working slowly away at finishing our master bedroom… it has been a while since I’ve talked about it! I’m happy to say that I have made some headway! I found this cute grey and white chair at Homesense, along with the throw with the ruffled edges, but I wanted a pillow to add some interest. So, today I went fabric scouting in Gastown, at the stores that are only open to the trade, and came home happy! The fabric laying on the seat is one of the samples I picked up today… it’s a Thomaspaul fabric.

The mauve pillow in this photo sits on our bed amongst all the grey. It was the jumping off point for our master bedroom. I’m adding some of my Faux Juju Hats in a variety of colors and sizes on the wall above the chair to add some more colour and texture to the room. I like how the shape of the pillow will be mimicked on the wall. Once I get them hung I will do a reveal of that corner of the master bedroom… one step at a time right? : )

For those of you that don’t want to make one yourself you can now also buy my Faux JuJu Hats on my Etsy site!
