Just a few case you miss me

Busy weekend ahead, a bridal shower, a friend's play production, a client presentation to finish, but that is the fun part. The bad part is I will be missing my computer for a few days as it get itself all backed up and then disappears for a major overall and some cool new upgrades. Ready for my clean new blog design that has me all excited. I can't tell you who is helping me with all this re-design right now, but hopefully she will in time as she is a most talented gal and I would love to share her styling ability and talent. I have a beautiful and exciting list of new advertisers we will be adding to the new blog design, my hope is that you can always find the best gift and the companies that send them. Only the kind I would buy and give myself. Totally off topic but I bought the most fabulous dress today and will have to find a way of showing it to you as it is quite unique (this will not include me modeling it until I make significant improvement in my cycling) . Speaking of cycling, my injury is finally getting better with numerous chiropractic adjustments. I hope to be back on the the Cycle Challenge next week. Even better I hear the temps will be rising into the 70's. So girls who signed up and haven't sent their miles/km this is your notice. The challenge should be back on by the end of the week. I may be computer missing-in-action for a few days and my voice will be quieter than usual but I figured you might enjoy the break.

Thank you to the readers who took time to comment this week, your comments are
thoughtful, gracious and I love getting to know you this way.
Just between you and me and my mental health professional, more reader comments
would be beneficial to my well being. And I want to know you better.
A most lovely welcome to the new readers this week.
Have the best weekend ~ xo

  6. It sounds like you have a very busy week-end ahead! I love the picture of the Louis chair with the magnolia flower in the foreground (I think it is a magnolia!). I can't wait to see your new blog design....I also wanted to comment that I read your "What I think of blogging" and it was spot on. I am an interior designer and fairly isolated not living in a metropolitan area and being creative can be quite lonely. So I really related to your story. It also takes a great deal to constantly be inspired and excited when you are not surrounded by like-minded people. So when I put a post up I get excited that I might interact with similar creative souls! Your blog is beautiful and you are welcome to come and visit mine anytime! Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. I think I need to send my computer to the same summer camp! Hope you have what sounds like a fun-filled weekend ahead. Very cold and windy again today- hope to add some miles before this week is up!!!

  8. Have a wonderfully fabulous time at all of your events!

  9. This sounds so exciting ! and as you can imagine the bridal shower makes me drool...
    and can't wait to see the fabulous dress, Sande!
    Have a great week end and hope you can get back to cycle soon !

  10. Well, we will miss you! But I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us. Hope your recovery is soon complete. And oh, how lucky the bride who gets a gift wrapped with love from you, Sande! Have a wonderful weekend and week ahead.

  11. Dear Sande,
    Have a wonderful weekend. It sounds jam-packed !!
    I can't wait to see your new blog design. I keep meaning to update mine but, I'm a gal that doesn't like change!! I reckon it will be at least two years before I can bring myself to alter it !! You wont be changing your wonderful header picture, will you ? That picture says 'Sande' to me.
    Don't get on that bike too quickly. Make sure everything has healed properly won't you.
    Enjoy your busy weekend. XXXX

  12. Hi Sande, Thank you so much for following my blog now, I am feeling truly honoured and really appreciate all of your comments. I am looking forward to seeing your new blog design and am sure it will look as beautiful and glamorous as this one. Glad you hear you're feeling better too (I'm still too scared to cycle in London). Have a lovely week ahead. Carole xx

  13. Thanks for a great laugh...your line about more comments. I feel the same way but am way too insecure to ask for them! See how healthy you are? I can't wait to see your redesign and your new advertisers...whatever the bike bit is about I hope it goes well. (Sorry but I haven't been following too closely lately--too much work.) Consider this comment proof that you are admired and appreciated!

  14. you will be missed but the anticipation is high for your new look, can't wait sande

  15. Sande,
    Have a wonderful weekend and can't wait to see the changes and additions! I have only been at this a few months, but have wondered if my girl already needs a face lift! HA!

  16. Hi Sande, I am loving that chair in the first picture!! So glad you are going to have a fun weekend with friends, those are the best kind of weekends. Can't wait to see your new dress. I know it is going to be a classic beauty . I am spending a weekend in the garden and enjoying the wonderful sunshine. I love this Spring weather. Back to planting, talk to you when you get back,Kathysue

  17. ola!

    um grande abraço

  18. I´m one of those who don´t leave comments alot on your blog, but still love to "peek" at your beautiful work. So, I´m excited and looking forward to the new design !

  19. Enjoy the weekend Sande...glad you are feeling better. xv

  20. i am so grateful that so many of us are so busy... but rest well .. take time for you.. xx

  21. Sounds great, Sandi! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend...


  22. Have a wonderful week - love your blog and love love your header :)

  23. Hey Sande, just had to stop by and say hi to a fellow (former) Torontonian. I actually live in the burbs. Fellow Aquarius too! Beautiful pics. Although I can appreciate the soothing tone on tone design look, I have to have colour. With a red living room/dining room and winter squash kitchen/front and side entrances with charcoal grey flooring ... ivories and anything too neutral make me twitch, although I love the look. I found you through "Falling Off a High Heeled Life". Your comment made me have to check your blog. The fast majority of my blogging buddies are American ... awesome people ... but it's really nice to connect with those who actually know the geographic and the culture.
    I have to say as well, those Louboutin Candy Lace shoes are AWESOME! I've gotten reaquainted recently with my shoe fetish.
    I'll be following along to see what you're up to. Looking forward to it!

  24. This is an interesting article. Wish I had read this sooner. Thanks for sharing.


  25. looking forward to the new styling sounds exciting, glad to hear your injury is getting better & the weathere is getting warmer we still have the rain at the moment so fingers crossed easter week will be better.
    Hope all goes well with the computer! Elaine x :)

  26. Goodness me - never let it be said that I didn't contribute to someone's mental health. I have just read a few of your gorgeous posts, but finally had to comment at this one ;-) May your knee heal too - I know what it's like to miss your bike!
    Hope your Easter was wonderful and that you have many more Macarons coming your way. DJ has made a beautiful job of your blog


Your comments are such a lovely addition to my day. Thank you.
