all in a week

These posts give me an opportunity to take a step back and see what I have accomplished over the past seven days. I have a lot on my plate in the coming weeks and keeping it all straight is challenging. I often find most of my head space is taken up with thoughts of what I have to do next and what I'm forgetting. Not a very fun way to go about your day and probably not very productive! Remembering to step back and enjoy the day, the moment, may be cliche but it is so true.

Orla and I found ourselves at a couple of photo shoots this week. This one was for an upcoming Toronto Life story that I'm writing. As usual, Orla just rolled with the punches and captivated the attention of the homeowner.

Here's Kristin Sjaarda at the other photo shoot we were on. I'll have this post for you next week sometime.

I spotted these chairs this week. The store is going to carry them in counter size. I think they might be perfect for my kitchen. (We need new stools as the leather is peeling off my other ones and they've been discontinued. I want to get four matching stools in total.)

One of those moments when you just have to stop and take it all in. Isn't that a lovely teapot and sugar container?

And another moment. Those flowers were dropped off to me early one morning by my friend Sarah. They had broken stems and didn't make the cut for bouquets. Lucky me!
