One of my (Lauren) favourite creative outlets is interior decorating. I have a lot of dreams for my future little home. I have a pink moleskin notebook full of my ideas. One afternoon Mom and I were out at a consignment shop downtown Guelph when we happened upon an old hand embroidered table runner. I am blessed with a Mother who happens to be a fantastic/pro-star seamstress. We make a good team – I come up with the design, she makes the design a reality (my prom dress is an example of this). The picture of the above pillow is the converted table runner with a royal blue pom-pom edge. I am thrilled with the result.

I also am looking forward to displaying my 1960’s salt and pepper shakers in my kitchen. What a sweet find! I love finding old things and making them into something new (maybe there’s a deeper meaning to this love:)

Here is a list of helpful books I have been perusing lately:

Vintage Fabric Style

Flea Market Style

Domino: The Book of Decorating

    You are my decorating hero! I remember your place at Prov… it somehow looked magazine worthy. We really should’ve taken advantage of your decorating savvy while you were still here, I don’t think anything has changed since you were last in Winnipeg. Oops!

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

  1. Sabrina,
    Thanks for the kind words…although I don’t know if any apartment in Prov House is magazine worthy 🙂 Don’t hesitate to shoot an email if you ever want help with ideas, I love it! Domino magazine and Livingetc (British) are usually great places of inspiration. Thank you Chapters.

    Missing you guys. Hope it’s not too chilly yet.

    love,
    Lauren
