I joined Pinterest a few weeks ago. The lovely Celine sent me an invite and now I’m completely hooked. I had heard about it months ago, but resisted joining for as long as possible.
What I LOVE about it is that it is an easy and organized way of collecting inspiration and it automatically links back to your original source. Brilliant.
Take a peek at some of my boards on Pattern, Fashion, Interiors, Patchwork and Colour. You’ll notice a new button in my blog’s side bar that will take you directly to my Pinterest page when you need a little inspiration and eye candy.
If you’re hooked on Pinterest too, let me know! Guilty pleasures are much better when shared with friends!
It didn’t rain on Sunday! The Yard Sale Trunk Show was so much fun. For the first time we had vendors out in the backyard, which made the show feel more spacious. Kessa brought along a tent, just in case of rain and it fit perfectly on the patio.
The highlight for me was Celine’s outdoor photobooth. I approached Celine a little while ago with the idea and wondered if it might be something she would like to try. Little did I know that she would take the idea and make more marvelous than I could have imagined. Celine worked with Rosalyn to create the sunny yellow backdrop. Now I’m in love with yellow! The night before the show, Celine & Jin arrived with a box of tools and worked to rig up the backdrop, a cute wooden ‘photos’ sign, and string to drop the lights and fabric bunting from. All their hard work totally paid off. For fun props, we used cute cardboard diamonds that Rosalyn made and super sour lemon candies that Celine brought.
All the photos have been posted here on flickr. They are all so wonderful, happy and funny. I have already spent hours looking through them all.
We asked for donations towards Sketch for the photobooth and we raised $155 dollars. the workroom will be matching the amount and sending a cheque for $300 to this great organization. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to have their photo taken and making it such a huge success.
Celine, you are amazing. Thank you for your sunny disposition and hard work. Best. Photobooth. Ever!
