File under ‘Awesome’: #GuelphBlogBrunch

My Sundays usually start out quite lovely, but this past Sunday had more in store…and it was awesome. I joined the first (of what I know will be many more) #GuelphBlogBrunch. Heather over at heartheather was the delightful human being behind this get-together – you must go check out her post (and super FAB photos – she’s got a great eye!) – and to her I am ever grateful.

The six of us met at 39 Carden Street Bistro in Guelph (read their blog post about our visit here) and it was the perfect choice for a group of DIY loving bloggers. I enjoyed the eggs bene (because if they are on the menu I am pretty much locked in) and the beautiful atmosphere. The cupboards are THE most gorgeous cupboards I have ever seen. I LOVE THEM. I want them. My brain is hatching plans as I type.


I also loved the lighting. I have been collecting vintage Crown Mason jars for a few years with the goal of having enough for both a chandelier over our dining room table and pendants over our kitchen island.


What ‘enough’ means I am a bit unsure just yet…but I feel like a few more are needed before I begin thinking of the arrangement/style of chandelier I want to make. The big ones are recent finds on the way home from visiting my BFF a few weekends ago and are the perfect size for pendants! (It has taken a while to collect them all since I am picky about the quality of the glass lid and also refuse to pay any more than $3 per jar.)


Inspiration to keep blogging away, and simply trying my best, comes from experiences like the one I had on Sunday. Each woman inspired me in her own way and I look forward to not only many more brunches, but following along online as they each share bits and pieces of their daily inspirations.

    When I mentioned the idea for this meet up to you at BlogPodium, your enthusiasm was a huge motivator for me to follow through. Thank you for being a part of something that is only going to get awesomer! (And I can't wait to see how you work your magic on those mason jars!)

      Thanks Heather! the trick now is finding a big tool to drill through the glass lids....:)
