This Is What

Bloggers Janis, me and Caroline

Last Thursday night I braved the little blizzard we were having and drove my car white-knuckled all the way to 29 Armstrong on 104th St. downtown to take in an art show (titled 'This is What') and sale featuring paintings from Erin Elizabeth Ross and photographs by Aaron Pederson.

How cool would this look on a wall at home?

Love these piggy banks! Wanted to take one home with me.

"Hmmm..which painting is my favorite?" Can I choose all of them? ; )

The stylish crowd. (That's photographer Sam Moukhaiber giving the peace sign.)

The cutest older couple I ever did see! They were delighted I wanted to take their picture : ).

I hope you all had a great weekend! It was around -34 degrees C with the windchill Saturday and Sunday. BLOODY COLD!! So I tried my best to stay warm and keep my fingers from falling off when I had to make my way outside. Mission accomplished, I was able to type up this post!

Looks like a lot of fun! The paintings are very gorgeous, love the colours in the one you liked best. Good for you braving that storm, I had to drive downtown for a doctors appointment and was soo scared.

This looks like such a fun evening out. You girls are gorgeous. I love the cute little piggy banks too and am also adoring the cute elderly couple! There is something so touching about seeing a cute elderly couple that are still in love. xo

This sounds like such a fantastic weekend and such a fantastic event. I definitely need to get in the groove of heading out again my days in November have been really busy!

This looks like it was a swell time, you are such brave gals the inner wuss in me has kept me indoors and hiding. Those Self Service magazines came out AGES ago. I was still in London. It's amazing how far behind we are.

Omg that IS the cutest old couple ever! So adorable. I have to do a drive up to Whis this Saturday and not gonna lie, I'm pretty petrified. I'm a white-knuckle driver even in heavy rain so we'll see how it goes haha. Glad you ladies were able to make it out though because this looks like an amazing evening! You all look lovely as ever :)

What talented artists and I'm sure they appreciated your effort in coming was freezing!!

this free bird said...

okay my mother tried to tell me it's been 5 degrees!! Marie I can now catch her in a lie like no other. I was all 'yeah right mom! i have a friend in edmonton who told me it's freezing as hell and you're outside the city meaning it's COLDER.' this was met with a bout of 'the silence', a small scuffle and a change in subject. carrie ftw!

ps-come on down. i'll clean out the spare bedroom. woot!
