Sunday tea

Every now and then I make myself afternoon tea instead of coffee. And after many hints here and there my hubby surprised me with this Oiva teapot last November! I’ve been admiring this pot for ages so it was more than welcomed to join our Oiva family! I also like the fact that if we have a guest who wants to drink tea instead of coffee, this is so much prettier to have on the table than running back and forth with our old black tea kettle 😀 It necessarily doesn’t sound too bad but everyone who has seen it knows what I’m talking about 😀

This week has been just so good! And we are only at Wednesday! So many good things have happened and yesterday I got a wonderful txt from my bestie that she’s coming to town in the fall !!!!! I’m beyond excited!!!! The thing is that we started planning a trip to New York for the coming fall a while ago and our plan was to meet there but now she decided to come here first and then we go to New York together!!!! YAY!!!! I know it’s still pretty far away 😀 But I can’t help myself! We both have never been to New York. My hubby has spent a night in the JFK years ago when he missed his connecting flight 😀 So that’s all we know. Hahaha 😀 . All the tips, where to eat, stay and so on are more than welcome!

Even though it’s officially not summer yet, we have had quite a heat wave over here. Last couple of days have been +28. And of course flowers don’t like it.. I keep reminding myself every time this happens.  So my first peonies for this summer were good for maybe half an hour when I got them and then they pretty much exploded from the heat 😀 Well there are some white roses in the mix too and they don’t seem to mind!  Also here’s yesterday’s simple table setting. We got Marimekko’s Oiva plates as a wedding gift. And I’m more that happy with them. I love that Oiva series has so many options, different prints and styles and it’s timeless. I like that I can grow the collection piece by piece and they go really well with other dishes too that I have. These Kurjenpolvi bowls (I only have these two) I got from sale last summer. Luckily I don’t have to go to all the way to Finland to get them, I can get them in downtown Vancouver. Marimekko Vancouver – Design house

Our puppy watches TV all the time ..  She takes it so seriously too and gets so into it. Pet food commercials or whatever nature films are the “worst” – I mean she gets so excited!! Too excited  sometimes. She even remembers some of her favourite commercial music too so when she hears it she comes rushing to see the dog or the cat on the TV. She’s so funny.

Easter table

Hi there! Are you all set up for the Easter weekend? I’m starting to get there 🙂 And here’s our Easter table setting that I promised earlier this week. What I love about North American Easter is that the Easter is celebrated with pastel colours. And I didn’t really learn to love decorating Easter until I moved here. Easter used to be always something that I didn’t give that much thought decor vice. But I love all the pastel coloured eggs and beautiful pink and white spring blooms outside 🙂 Bright yellow (absolutely nothing wrong with that) but it was never really my thing 😀

Bunny napkins made a return this year. I made these bunny napkins a couple years ago for Easter themed brunch, see it here. They are just so cute and a funny detail to add to the table setting.  Fresh tulips and of course no Easter without chocolate eggs 🙂 I fell in love with these pink glass Easter egg jars that I spotted in Pier 1 and I had to get a couple of them home with me! Also the little lamb is from there too!

Pale Pastels

Enjoyed pale pastels in a simple table setting the other day. I brought these pink Arabia Koko dishes from Finland last summer. Napkins were a Christmas gift from my Mom, they are from Pentik! 🙂

Friday is here and we are so close to take off to our vacay! I haven’t started packing yet but I’m gonna start today no matter what!!! I went to the mall yesterday to quickly look what I could find and I got one dress from American Eagle. 🙂 To be honest I was too tired to make any decisions 😀 One dress was all I could handle right now! haha.. Well, I’m gonna be in my bikinis most of the time anyways, who needs clothes 😀

 

I don’t know how good the Internet is going to be where we are going. But I’m trying to give updates through my Instagram! I have so many things to do today so I’m keeping it short! Wishing you wonderful weekend!
