Fall Coats

I went for an early morning walk today and there was that feeling of fall in the air.  Vancouver usually stays very mild well into October, but wearing a scarf today got me very excited for fall.  I think fall is the best time of year for clothes.  So I came home and decided to showcase one of my favorite fall items: The Coat.

Here are a few amazing fall coats (some in my price range and some maybe not so much).

Bag for a friend

Today I worked with some beautiful, soft, red leather.  I had a friend request a red coin purse last week and here it is!

Paper-Ya

My posts have been lacking because fall is right around the corner and I have been sewing like crazy. I am also going to be launching a new and improved blog, so that has been consuming a bunch of time as well.

A week ago I was at Paper-Ya. I love stationary and all things paper, so I could spend forever in this store. It is located on Granville Island in Vancouver, so if you are ever there you have to check it out. I found some sweet thank you cards (which I was in need of) and a couple cute housewarming gifts.







Also, today I am going to cut out these!  They are so soft and are going to make some great fall bags.

Banff

I have been a bit behind on my blogging lately due to the fact that Darren and I took a trip to Banff/Edmonton for a week to relax and get a bunch of wedding planning done. It was the most amazing trip and so many exciting and fun things happened. I will be posting more on some of the highlights later (umm bridal shower?) but for now I just want to share some beautiful photos that Darren captured in one of our favorite places; Banff.  It was a bit of a drive, but we just listened to some great driving tunes and had lots of laughs.  We spent my birthday and our 7 year anniversary there for the first two days of the trip!
