So here we are ….. another new week and I was thinking about what I have lined up for the next few weeks for my blog posts, then a thought occurred to me to see what you like. It's pure curiosity on my end but I always like to stay in line with what my readers find interesting. So go ahead, comment below I'd love to hear your thoughts. Have a fantastic week!
Featured in this month's Style At Home magazine is a backyard in which my husband and I had always dreamed our little yard could become. After a lot of sweat, swearing, tears and trips to the dump we finally were able to see what all our hard work had become. Ten years ago we had purchased our home and needless to say, the backyard needed help .... but so did a lot of other things about the house and unfortunately, the backyard had to wait. After taking out an oil tank about the size of a dinosaur, cutting down three extremely large trees, breaking cement with a sledge hammer, building a new deck and tearing down a lopsided shed, we can finally sit and enjoy our yard. I want to thank everyone who came to my backyard blogger party and to Style At Home magazine for featuring it. We were truly proud it made the cover too!
I have to say a big THANK YOU to Karla Amadatsu of Kerrisdale Design who not only did her magic with her amazing styling job but she also prepared the most delicious appetizers and delightful seafood pasta the girls all enjoyed.

Hi there, I hope everyone had a lovely Easter long weekend. We just got back from Penticton and couldn't believe the beautiful, warm weather we had there. I got a bit of a red tinge on my face from too much sun, but it was well worth it. This week I wanted to share some pictures I took back in January while visiting the display for The Best Young Designer Contest up at Morgan Crossing in South Surrey. My apologies for not posting this sooner but things got a little busy for me soon after. However, we know now that the winner of the contest was Daniel Meloche, Jennifer Scott came in 2nd and Joanna Kado won the "People's Choice Award". I think all of the designers are extremely talented and it shows in their spaces. I am very excited to also mention that I will be working with Jennifer Scott photographing her home for the September issue of BC Home ~ can't wait !!!
Here are some of my favorite shots ...
