Ladies who lunch...


A few weeks ago, the lovely Victoria from Design Ties invited me to join her and a group of lovely blogging ladies for afternoon tea at the most adorable little teahouse. 

I was completely honored to be invited, and couldn't wait to meet these amazing, creative women!

We met up at the Little White House "Salon Cafe" in Fort Langley, BC. This place is just right up  my alley...lots of white, lots of chandeliers and yummy treats! 

It was a perfect lunch (if you've never had "high tea", you need to gather up some girlfriends and head to the nearest teahouse. It's just so lovely in every way.) 

Victoria was so amazingly thoughtful and brought us these beautiful gerbera daisies! So perfect for a sunny spring day! 




And she made these adorable little place cards....perched on the cutest little glass card-holder. 




And here we are...sitting pretty under some serious bling :)

Thanks to all of you ladies for including me in your get-together! And thanks especially to Victoria for organizing the whole thing! It was so nice to get to know you all a little better :)

  13. It was nice to meet you also Tracy, I felt honoured to meet someone with such great taste and one whose blog has taken off! I still need to hit your thrift store one day when I am in your neck of the woods!

  16. So glad I spotted your blog on Hodge Podge. It's fantastic. I've been scrolling through and especially love the post you did about your ever evolving living room. I'm in the process of going from darker colors to lighter colors as well. That post really inspired me to keep moving in that direction.

  17. Tracey, love your post! It was so nice meeting you and hopefully we will plan another one so we can have another opportunity to chat more, it sounds like we have lot's in common with two little ones keeping us busy! Love reading your blog (though honestly you put the rest of us to shame with all the projects you manage with two kiddies running around....And the rocket birthday party? Awesome!)

    Take care and looking forward to the next get together!
