Leaving Soon

Hello my Pretties! I can only hope your Hallowe'en was as enjoyable as mine. Today is my birthday and we have been celebrating it all weekend. My middle daughter had to leave today for Vancouver as she has been chosen to play at the Women's Nationals for hockey. We are flying out on Wednesday for six days to watch the games. Which leads me to an important question. If any of my readers come from the Vancouver/Surrey area I would appreciate a little insider information on where to go for our type of stuff. You know what I mean. Vintage, antiques, thrift/charity shops, cheery little shops with that touch of retro? Please let me know if you are in possession of this kind of top secret information. I promise not to tell anyone if it is your little secret.

Have a great week, my Lovelies!

While I don't know of any secret shops, I can recommend a post-shopping place for Afternoon Tea! The Sutton Place hotel has a fabulous tea... towers of dainty and delicious sandwiches and goodies.

Happy B-day! You know Vancouver is a very high risk flu zone right now? Wear a mask!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

Oh no, please DO tell! I live only 2.5 hours from the area, and would like to know myself! :)

Have fun!

Happy Birthday! Hope you have a wonderful time while you're away. Your Cath Kidston bags are so pretty. Also, the bedding on my post you commented on....bought the sheets at Marshall's a couple of years ago and the quilt was made by me!
