52 objects - no. 25

In case you haven't figured it out yet , I'm actually on holiday right now! Of course, I didn't want to stop posting so I did some work in advance and asked a few friends to help out. I didn't get around to this post so I am attempting it from my remote location. My dear husband who stayed behind in Toronto took the photograph for me and then had to go to a neighbour's house to borrow their USB cord to download and email me the photo.  I hope it works! Tomorrow, I have another guest filling in for me for The Friday Files and then Monday I will be back.

Now, onto object number 25.

52 objects - no.20

Wow, today we're cracking the twenties which means we're almost half way there which also means we're almost half way through 2011. Where has the time gone? Since I started the week with a children-oriented giveaway from the lovely and  talented Kessa, I thought I would think about what objects I have that relate to my childhood; things that I have had held onto since I was little. And then I thought about this knitted white baby blanket... Object number twenty.

Do you fall into the "can't get enough of the royal wedding" camp or the "can't wait for it to be over" camp? I have to admit I feel somewhat isolated from all the hoopla. We got rid of cable last summer and without a television I'm a little bit behind on all the media coverage. My greatest source of information is twitter, strangely enough! I'm still trying to decide if I will get up in the middle of the night and go to a friend's house to watch it. I am kind of curious to see how they modernize the wedding and of course I want to see the dress. I remember being woken up in the middle of night to watch Princess Diana's wedding and I think I would be disappointed if I didn't do the same again. In honour of the upcoming nuptials, I thought this was a fitting object to talk about today.

Is it here yet? The long weekend. I have so much to accomplish and I'm really looking forward to having four days off in a row. It will be Project Central around here: finishing off the bedroom, touching up the paint in the bathroom, dying some easter eggs with Henry, and maybe even tackling the yard if the weather cooperates. Do you have any projects you hope to finish over the weekend? Do tell! I'll be back here on Tuesday, fingers crossed, with a reveal of our new bedroom. I really hope that brass candle holder I ordered arrives soon! I'm leaving you with object number 16 out of 52. It's one of my favorites and something that friends always ask me about when they visit my home. Happy weekend everyone!
