I’ll be keeping things short and sweet this week as there are only a few more days until our much anticipated market. As Rachel mentioned yesterday, we got a tonne of things checked off of our list over the long weekend (it is so great to have her back in town!) but there is still much to do. Scout will take place almost a year to the day of our first market and we’re still not entirely sure how we fell into the roles of event organizers! But it’s been so inspiring along the way and we continue to be amazed at the effort and creativity that each of our vendors put in to help us make these events so incredible for all who attend. To give us all a little (and much needed) coffee break, I thought I’d feature this simple Scandinavian home dubbed “The Ordinary House”….
Designed by the Swedish architects, In Praise of Shadows, this wood panelled home is nestled in the forests of Nacka, Sweden. It’s simple lines, floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights highlight the surrounding wilderness and maximize natural Northern light year round. The owners also have a pretty colourful collection of Eames chairs…
Today is the last day to enter Poppytalk’s giveaway for the last two tickets to our wine + cheese night this Friday. It is our first time hosting such an evening and I’m really excited to watch it all unfold! With live entertainment by the band Coalmont and jazz vocalist Sharla Sauder, a silent auction for Life Recovery, sweet treats and great goody bags for each of our guests, it is sure to be a fantastic night all around. Hope to see you there!
