Girly Pirate Party

Our baby girl turned 5 this past Summer(during my "time off" from blogging) and I wanted to share some images from her party with you guys. I kept things pretty simple but I love how it all turned out. The only decorating I did was the table and a bit in the tree house. There was also a treasure hunt in the sandbox(not pictured) that turned out really great(I buried necklaces, rings, crowns, fake and real money). The cake was made by a friend and she did an amazing job(found the cake on Pinterest and she redid it for me). A few DIY things I did for the party....I put black duck tape on the water bottles and, in white ink, stamped a pirate image onto them. I also stamped the same pirate image onto the black paper bags I bought for the treat bags. I used cut up plastic table clothes to decorate the backs of the chairs.

The Dented Can

The store within a store....this place is amazing!!!!
The prices are crazy good and the style is something I am loving right now. I purchased a vintage record player that they gutted and finished in a light blue. I will be using it for a coffee bar in our living room and it was a steal at $55! It's the 6th picture down and eventually I will be doing a posting on it.

3 Ladies & Their Stuff Inc

This store is located in Leslieville Alberta and if you are EVER in the area I strongly suggest you check it out. 3 Ladies & Their Stuff is full of vintage furniture used to display clothes, jewelry, hats, wallet, home wears, etc, etc. Some pieces are actually vintage while others are new but have that vintage feeling.
There is another store located inside this one called The Dented Can(refurbished vintage furniture) and I will share it with you in my next blog posting but between the two of them I can see myself making quite a few more trips to Leslieville.

It was my daughters first day of Kindergarten yesterday and I managed to have a mini photo shoot with her before she went. I thought I would share one of my favorites with you....

Just recently I was over at a friends house decorating the lamp shade pictured above. It took me two evenings at her house to finish as the twine took a long time to wrap and glue. I love how this turned out and have it on my bedside table. If you are interested in decorating a lampshade like the one above check out the picture below for all the supplies I used.
