What a fantastic Saturday!!
As much as I enjoy blogging, the blogsphere can be a lonely place. Sure we connect with one another through our comments (luv them – keep them coming!), we learn a little about the lives of our blog-friends through the topics they write about… but it’s faceless. Our personalities come out in our words and phrases, but it’s just not the same. I’m sure you know what I mean!
Over the last few months I’ve discovered that – right here in my own back yard (lower-mainland, British Columbia [BC], Canada) – there are LOTS of home decor & design, DIY and junk-to-treasure bloggers. Lovely, talented women with similar interests to my own. How fantastic is that?!
So why stay lodged behind our computer screens? Why not take advantage of a beautiful, sunshiney BC Saturday and actually meet – face to gorgeous face – for brunch?!
And that’s exactly what we did… 7 BC BlogGURLS met for afternoon tea!!
We met out in the township of Fort Langley, a charming little community filled with historic buildings. I loved the tree-lined, quaint Glover Road!
And situated on that very road was the Little White House & Co boutique and cafe.
So who are the BC BlogGURLS? In no particular order: Karla from Kerrisdale Design; Nancy from Marcus Design; Barbara from Hodge:Podge; Maria from Colour Me Happy; Catherine from Peace Love Sweater; Tracey from My House of Giggles. Oh… and me (Victoria) ;-)
I’m so excited about building a network of bloggers with this group of women! Of course we’ll increase our numbers… there are a few women who were invited to attend our gathering but were unable to make it. We’ll rope them in for another gathering… and there WILL be other gatherings!!! The BC BlogGURLS network will grow!!!
Below are photos of the decadent yummies we were served for Afternoon Tea!

The LWH is – literally – a little house: it had a vintage bathroom (above) filled with sweet bathroom accessories and decor treats, a wee kitchen with dinner wear, utensils & other kitchen paraphernalia - all in white – stocking the shelves and counter, and bedrooms with decadent linens, inviting pillows and fantastic headboards. I found myself imagining how I would decorate with the special trinkets, beautiful mirrors and original art found throughout the house. The shop owner also has wonderful, chic clothing and accessories displayed everywhere. A simply lovely place to shop and dream!
Such a lovely day!
I can’t wait until our next get-together!!
