day 135: wthw {not really feelin’ it.}

I really didn’t want to blog today. But in the spirit of perseverance, here goes.
I had a busy morning doing the finishing edits on a wedding that I did recently. There was some really challenging colour balancing (the ceremony was in a church with RED carpet. The colours were blue and pink…and the carpet made everyone look like they had red skin.) So by noon my eyes were done looking at the screen.
But, on a happier note–I booked tickets for VSO (Vancouver Symphony Orchestra) today for our Valentines. I am so very excited. Dave and I used to go out to Vancouver a lot more for theatre and I’ve always wanted to include VSO in our culture budget. Luckily convincing Dave was not a problem (we listen to CBC almost exclusively), and now here we are! Two tickets to Rachmaninoff & Dvorak with Sara Davis Buechner on piano at the Orpheum. Huzzah!!!
Now I have the the *ahem* dilemma of what to wear.
Anyway, after feeling totally over being on the computer this afternoon, I decided to take a quick trip to H&M to find some tights (and if I happ’d upon one–a dress). I, of course walked out with nothing that I intended–although I did find this sweet little gold leaf necklace.
But…I still can’t figure out what I’d like to wear. I’ve searched Etsy…the problem that I’ve found is that all I seem to find is XS or S sizes. Some medium. Not very many large. Yarg. I was just on ShopRuche.com…nice…but nothing stood out. Went to Modcloth.com and that was…over my budget.
Any suggestions on places to look? I want classy, retro. Probably full skirted, (but I’m not picky) and NOT strapless. I really wanted something ice blue. But again…not picky.

day 128: wthw {blue}

Whatever the heck Wednesday meets Poppytalks Winter Colour Week. Prepare yourself for random blue objects in and around my home.

My ‘new to me’ thrifted blouse that I found at MCC today.

Blue Bow. Blue eye.

Blue weather.

My favourite blue suitcase. Yes, I can and have fit everything I need for one weekend in this.

Old blue books.

day 121: ‘wthw’ {whatever the heck wednesday}

I’ve been toying with the idea of a structure overhaul on my blog (as far as posting goes) to help make it more focused. Part of me, however really likes being able to post whatever I want on my blog, because, hey, it’s my blog. I decided, however, that I would deem Wednesdays “Whatever the heck Wednesdays”, therefore allowing me to post, well, whatever the heck.
As much as I’d like to actually post a full post today, I’ve got a nauseating migraine that I’m trying to nurse away. Staring at the computer is probably the last thing I should be doing right now. So I figured I’d just post the goings on here on the farm, which is (as you notice from the image) a lot of snow. We got a foot of snow last night, and this morning we got freezing rain. It’s starting to look nasty out there and apparently the snow is going to be gone by Thursday. I trudged around in the snow trying to get some good shots this morning (hoping that the fresh air would also help my migraine. No dice.) I am mostly dissatisfied with the images that I took, therefore only one picture to share today.

Here’s what I have for post ideas so far:

Tuesday: ‘Hipsta Tuesdays’
Wednesdays: ‘Whatever the Heck Wednesdays’
Thursdays: Thriftdays
Friday: (I work all day Fridays, so I need something that’s quick and easy…)
Saturday: Through the Viewfinder (vintage camera techniques)

Any ideas?
