Victoria and I are taking a little blog break for the next couple of weeks. Due to bad planning on our part, we didn’t think to line up some guest bloggers till a few days ago. DOH!! So, rather than leaving DesignTies sitting here all alone and feeling left out, we’re going to re-publish some of our favourite posts from the last year and a half.
We’ll be back to blogging the week of August 16th. And don’t forget, August 19th is the Bake-N-Blog cupcake extravaganza hosted by Staci at Staci Edwards Design. I’ve made and eaten my Graham Cracker with Key Lime Cream Cheese Icing cupcakes, and I’ll be telling you all about them on the 19th. Was there a beater accident? Did Squirt steal a cupcake from the counter? What’s my secret icing ingredient? Be sure to stop by on the 19th for the answers and my completely unbiased cupcake review. And it’s not too late to sign up for a cupcake of your own!!
Seeing as I’ve had beachy things on my mind lately, I thought I’d share some pretty beachy accessories and homes with you before I go. They’re from my blog buddy Susan’s store, Moving Designz. If you’re ever in PEI, you HAVE to stop by her store in Summerside and check it out!! Till then, you can see more of her beautiful products and projects on her blog, Susan on Design. Here are a couple of beachy vignettes from her store window…
I love the silver sailboat, shells, and starfish — glam goes to the beach!! :-)
I love these framed pieces!!
Check out the metal fish sculpture on the wall. It’s whimsical and fun :-)
I could sleep in this bed!!
Susan cleverly transformed an unused closet in her living room into a shelving unit. It’s a great place to display pretty beach items :-)
Susan recently completed a bed & breakfast project in Charlottetown, PEI. It’s Number One Grafton Street, and it’s beautiful!! Next time I go to PEI, I’m staying here!!
Another one of Susan’s projects is this stunning waterfront home. It was close to being completed when she took these pictures in May.
Susan’s house isn’t too shabby either :-) Here’s her dining room…
And her living room. You can see the then-closet door in the right of the picture.
Hope you enjoyed this peek at seeing Susan’s store and her design work. She shares her projects from start to finish on her blog, so you can really get a feel for what’s involved in turning the “before” room into the “after” room.
See you in a couple of weeks!!
