What a week!

October 19, 2012

If you follow me on Intagram you know that last week I was in Ireland - I had planned to share with you some of my pictures, but it’s now Friday and I haven’t even had a chance to look at them myself as it seems like I barely stopped moving all week. Maybe I’ll manage to edit some to share next week.

While this week was busy there were a couple of great things that happened. On Monday I found out that I won the ‘Paint it like new’ giveaway from Vanessa at Decor Happy. I can’t tell you how very excited I am about this. Remember the Kijiji chairs I got early last year? Well, as soon as I decide on some pretty fabric they’re going to get a nice colourful makeover. I think it’s about time I got a move-on with this project given I’ve owned the chairs for almost 2 year.

On Wednesday I went to see ‘Argo’ with D, and I quite enjoyed it. I’m too young to remember the Iranian hostage crisis, but even I know the story was largely fictionalized for an American audience. I found the Wikipedia article 'Canadian Caper', this one by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada and this one on 'The Slate' helpful in clearing up a few things.

On Thursday evening a friend and I had the opportunity to head down to Liberty Village to attend the IYellow Wine Club Design Series event being held at the new EQ3 store. It was a fun evening – what’s not to like about checking out some wonderful furniture while sampling some tasty wine and appetizers? Crush VQA was sampling 4 wines and I have to say I rather liked their Riesling-Gewurztraminer – it would go nicely with relaxing on a summer patio, so it’s too bad we’re heading rapidly into fall - drat.

Anyways, here are some of the drool worthy things I spotted last evening (sorry – they were taken with my phone)
EQ3 Reverie two piece sectional in grey
If I didn't already have a sofa I'd be tempted by this one - the Reverie 2 piece sectional
EQ3 Marimekko fabric
I love the bright and colourful Marimekko fabric, and the creative way they used it as wall art
iYellow design series - Crush Riesling with a slider
The second of the two Crush wines I tried (the Riesling) and a tasty slider - one of the yummy appetizers (I'm a bad blogger and forgot the name of the restaurant that provided the food)
EQ3 Tahsis light fixture
Love the EQ3 Tahsis light. I have a very similar one in storage - I should really get around to hanging it in my dining room.
Eames Lounge chair in white leather
The Eames Lounge chair in lovely white leather. In a future home I will have one of these
I think I might have to go back for some of the fabric, and if I'm lucky enough to win the lottery the Eames Lounge chair will be coming home with me too!
*Disclosure - I was given tickets to the IYellow Design Series event at EQ3, however all opinions expressed are solely my own.
