A Romantic Weekend in Vancouver
Just before winter hits us on the prairies, my husband and I decided to make a little getaway to one of my favourite cities, Vancouver! It is absolutely gorgeous there this time of the year with all it’s majestic elm and oak trees in full yellow and orange fiery leaves….it rained a bit the first day, but such is Vancouver! The rest of the weekend was a glorious cool, crisp fall setting. Of course, the trip wouldn’t be complete without visiting some of my favourite stores, The Farmhouse, Country Furniture, The Cross and Heather Ross, a little shop we discovered near Granville Island. Along the way, cascades of shop flowers spilled over the streets.
Heather Ross’ shop is one of my favourite stops! It’s a small artsy little place, she is such a kind, bubbly personality and is always in her element surrounded by her personal artwork and creations. Right now her store is themed in a beautiful transparent sea haze green. Vintage pottery, glassware, personal soaps, candles and scented creams along with antique linens and eurostyle farmhouse antiques decorate the shop. It was dusk (already arriving at 4:30pm!) when we arrived and the sunlight streaming through the window and vintage glassware was stunning.
Another favourite stop is Farmhouse on S.W. Marine Drive. They had the cutest garden houses I’ve ever seen! Built from architectural salvage pieces, every one is unique…I’d love to try one of these sometime.
It was a lovely time…
