Ocean Park festival…

Today was Ocean Park Day, which is the annual festival in our little neighbourhood shopping area. Not even the rain can stop me from sniffing out cotton candy and hot dogs!

One of my must-see shops is Romancing The Home, a gorgeous little home decor shop. Today they were hosting a Pop-Up shop of Festive Nest artisans products. I was delighted to meet Angela, from La La’s Land (below). Festive Nest hosts vintage artisan sales in a barn on a local farm, and I’m dying to go to the next one!

These are the lovely ladies of JJ & Whiskey–one of my all-time favourite clothing stores. I’m so lucky to live in a close-knit neighbourhood, where we all know each other!

Just thought I’d show you the flip flops I bought there last week. The black ones with the olive-yellow straps. So comfy!

After a hot dog, some butter chicken & rice, and a big hot latte, I had to come home for a nap!

paint & canvas…

Painting is dear to my heart and I love seeing work by talented artists. One of my favorite Westcoast artists is Krista Eaton. She creates vibrant lush florals that just about jump off the wall. These photos can’t do justice to the actual paintings, which are peppered throughout Ocean Park village cafes and retail stores. One of these days I’m going to splurge on one of Krista’s beautiful creations!

I’m also a big fan of Bobbie Burgers, a Vancouver artist who creates stunning florals on huge canvases. The photo below is one of her gallery installations. Her artwork is on display at art galleries throughout Canada and the U.S.A. She’s a regular at Bau-Xi Gallery in Vancouver.
