Today was such a beautiful day in Vancouver. Sunny and crispy cold, just the way I like it!

While walking the little man to school, we noticed that the house just around the corner had changed its look. I had mentioned this house in this post a while back.

The round lanterns give the house this magical look – actually the entire street looks magical with these lanterns. And of course these are times when I really appreciated my neighbourhood, The Drive, and I am thankful to be living here amidst the creativity, passion and madness!

I will have to take pictures of the lanterns at night when they look the most magical.

Another great thing that I experienced today was my little man’s school assembly. It was so powerful to see these kids performing and to experience their learning process. They did so well and of course I am so proud (it was actually a good ending to a week of frustration with my little man as he has got in trouble several times at school for having altercations on the playground with the other kids – argghhh!).

It was also wonderful to see him get excited about giving gifts to his teachers and principal…

Hope you are on track with your gift buying/making and wrapping… It is a big job to undertake and can get quite overwhelming at times, don’t you think?

Vancouver is COLD, very COLD! Everyone is talking about it as we are not used to this weather here. It has a bite and if not dressed appropriately, I can honestly say that you will suffer!

I am sitting cosily in our old, drafty beautiful home with the fire roaring up the chimney and me looking forward to a day of running errands and some jewellery making tomorrow.

This past weekend was busy and we saw some good friends three days in a row which was a real treat. Little man got to play with some of his favourite friends and got a bit over excited I must say. It was a little challenging trying to calm him down… and little lady is really enjoying the company of all the little people around her.

Little man has been constantly talking about his school friend and having a play date with him. This school friend, MC, has already been over once and little man has been wanting to go over to MC’s house for a play date. He could not stop talking about him on Sunday, so much so that we ended up seeing them in Costco of all places… another school mate was there, S, and the three boys took a ride on the cart with some hearty laughs…

and yes I do go to Costco from time to time… but I am disliking it more and more these days especially if I find myself there on a weekend. It is CRAZY and not fun at all!

Look at the snow in our front yard – well trodden over by the little people. Oh, what fun!

The lovely fire that is heating up my freezing feet…

The beautiful late afternoon light while I am pushing the little people in the swing (not today’s early evening sky though, mind!)

and lastly, I just want to share these beautiful mini cameo earrings (the cameos need to face each other though! :o) – I just love them!

The craft sale is this Friday. It is exciting and daunting at the same time. I hope it will be successful for all!

Hope to see you there!  If you are on Facebook, this is their page.

ps Melina will be taking part in the sale with me!
