I had the pleasure of attending the "Ontario Here & There Art Show" at the Toronto Evergreen Brick works. This Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund raises money each year to be able to send kids in need to camp. This year they sold paintings and woodwork by Canadian artists of Canadian landscapes to help support.
The evening was a huge success with raising over $15,000! Lindsey Deluce was there as well as her team from CP24 to capture what was happening on this special evening. Below are some images I snapped of the night and at the bottom is where you can keep up in touch and find out about the next event.
Below I'm with Annie who went to a Taylor Statten Camp!
She was a great date this evening and she knew so many of the places in the paintings too!
Each year I look forward to BlogPodium for many reasons - I am able to meet and reconnect with great people, there is so much to learn about the benefits of blogging, there are lots of great opportunities to network and my most favourite is looking at the stack of pretty new business cards I acquire from the day!
Today is my best friends birthday and I along with lots of our friends were able to surprise her! In case you're wondering where you have heard her name before, Susie is the person I travelled around Europe with earlier this year for 2 months!
Weldon Park is a new bar which opened at the end of this summer on College street in Toronto. They were so accommodating, they gave us bottles of champagne to help celebrate Susie's birthday, a section of the bar so we could all be together and had bowls of candy everywhere for us to nibble on.
This bar is the place to go to if you love dancing, good food + drinks, great music and a small yet spacious place to enjoy an evening with your friends.
Thank you Wesley and Jeff for making this such an incredible night!
Last Friday I spent the afternoon with Sarah Richardson and 20 other bloggers as we sipped on delicious cocktails from Pluck Teas and got to know each other. We were invited into her office which was bright, open and filled with big beautiful pillows from her new fabric line with Kravet. Sarah's fabric line is exactly what you would imagine it to be - colourful, classic and totally Sarah.
I didn't realize until now that I was taking everyone's pictures and didn't get any with me in it - hopefully someone snapped one!
Alyssa and Steven Terpstra had the perfect happily ever after wedding as they exchanged vows in front of 135 guests on July 7, 2012. This stunning couple looked adorable with nothing but love in their eyes on their special day with a magical setting at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. From beginning to end, this wedding was exquisite with a lovely colour pallet and simple decor. The happy couple welcomed a daughter a few months ago named Coco! Congratulations on the start of your beautiful family!
