{be brave}

Hello all,

I was lucky enough to have two days off from work together last week {I don't have weekends off} so I thought I'd finish a project I intended to complete literally months and months ago! I bought the most gorgeous fine porcelain two-tiered cake stand with the idea that I'd decorate it in some way or another...and then I did that annoying thing that I do with all new notebooks and sketchbooks that I buy...decided that I don't want to write in it just yet as I might be having an artistic 'off-day' and ruin it. 

I therefore shelved it, with all my lovely paper goods...until now! I plucked up the courage to just go for it and embrace my love of dots {I'd originally intended to do one of my leafy patterns on it} and I'm actually rather pleased with the results! Have a look for yourself at the finished cake stand...
I do hope this might might inspire you to be brave and finish all of those projects you put aside for fear of making a mistake - I'm going to be working my way through mine in the coming weeks, maybe I'll share some more with you all!

{cute overload} meet Edgar...

Hello all,

Let me introduce to you, officially the World's best dog...this is Edgar {cool name eh?} and he's the absolute man! Manny and I had the pleasure of spending a whole day with this little guy yesterday {thanks Ben!} and let me tell you - he's super cool!

I thought I'd share some of the many {too many?} photos I snapped of him yesterday with you all!
Clearly enjoying the car ride on my lap...
We took the little dude to Ambleside Park {it's really more of a beach!?} and he totes loved it...you'd think being a Pom that he'd want to be carried rather than walked - nope, he was just happy to trot along next to us for a nice long walk. Honestly, I'm defo going to try to convince Jack {hey Jack!} to let us have one!

Actually though, even if you don't have a dog, but happen to be in Vancouver - I would definitely recommend taking a cheeky trip over the Ambleside Park, it was really beautiful and the sunset was amazing and there were so many cute dogs {I totally got dog envy!}.

So yes, that was my day - I've got a new found love of Pomeranians, so if anyone fancies sharing some heart meltingly cute pictures with me, please feel free to go right ahead!

xo.
