Who remembers watching endless reruns of Three’s Company?? (Go on, admit it. You can’t lie about your age forever.) Today I met Suzanne Somers (pictured on the left, in her role as Chrissy) at an event for work at which her husband was being honoured with an award. Anyway, I was introduced to her, and she said, “I love your dress!” I was wearing this … Continue reading Suzanne Somers Likes My Dress
I was nominated to participate in this blog hop thing by Raphaelle over at Deux Souriceaux (thank you, Raphaelle!). She paid me the nicest compliment I could’ve wished for which is that she said I’m “smart and fun”. How did she know that those are way up there on the list of how I’d like people to perceive me? Awesome. Anyway, the way this blog … Continue reading Blog Hop!
Just gonna brag a bit here about my talented husband! Back in January I mentioned in a post that he was working on a wooden-slab table. I’m happy to report it turned out really well, and is an amazing one-of-a-kind creation. This table started life as our neighbours’ huge, old maple tree.

[Fist Pump!] … Continue reading Right on Target?

While the obvious welcome relief is being able to go outside without donning parka, scarf, hat, gloves, legwarmers, boots, and ideally ski goggles, the less obvious perk of going south is COLOUR. Colour! I haven’t seen colour outdoors for months! Toronto has … Continue reading Colour Therapy for Winter-Weary Eyes
It’s time for Project Sewn’s challenge #3: “If the shoe fits: use a favorite pair of shoes from your own closet as an inspiration for your outfit”. My name is Lori and I have a shoe problem. And this happens to be my favourite of all 4 Project Sewn 2013 challenges (duh). While I have dozens of ideas for projects based on this challenge, some … Continue reading Project Sewn Challenge #3: If the Shoe Fits
As a faithful follower of Lladybird’s & OonaBalloona’s amazing sewing blogs, I caught wind last month of what sounded like a rather epic event in the sewing blog world: Project Sewn. Some of the top sewing bloggers have signed on to complete 4 sewing challenges over the course of 4 weeks, with one sewist getting booted off the island each week according to popular vote. … Continue reading Project Sewn: Did Someone Say Shoes?
