Janine and Jen were both on Sherry's list of who she was hoping to meet in Toronto, so there was much excited chatter and hugs when it was their turn.

Obviously Jen got the memo to wear yellow on top (she not only had a yellow jacket, but a yellow cardi as well) and blue pants.
It was my first time at a West Elm store and I loved it. I've been wanting to make the trip for awhile now so I was excited to take a tour of the store.
I thought the little nook near the cash filled with driftwood and owls was adorable.
The Christmas trees were inspiring - lots of white feathers, glass balls, painted pine cones, and twig decorations.
And this little twig all wrapped in white wool looked so wintery - and possibly like a very labour-intensive DIY project.
Do you want to see what I bought (well besides the book natch)?
And do you want to know what my dear husband said about my beautiful garland - "What the heck is that? It looks like someone's intestines." Unbelievable! I'm sure he will fall in love with it when he sees it on the mantel. Don't you agree?
Now that I've had a look through the book, I have to say it is wonderful. John and Sherry have come up with over 240 projects that are easy ways to bring your house some love. Their book would make a great gift for any DIYer.
