Heidi-and-Seek Wedding Boutique

If you've been reading my blog recently, you know that I've started selling some wedding accessories!
At first I put them in my original shop, Heidi-and-Seek Boutique, but I decided since it's really a category all on its own, I would give it its own shop!  And therefore, Heidi-and-Seek Wedding Boutique was created!

This week I'm working on bridal sashes, and I've got a few more ideas up my sleeve for the rest of the bridal party!  Stay tuned...

I know we're in the middle of bathing suit season, but I always feel like I never quite find THE bathing suit.  Here's a few I've pinned so far this season...

One. TwoThree. Four. Five.

I have also bought a pretty bathing suit from this Etsy shop and I can't wait to get it in the mail!

Etsy Love: Victory Patterns

Truth be told I don't use patterns at all.  I make everything up on my own, but Victory Patterns has got a lot of cute designs going on and I love the styling and the photos used on the pattern fronts, verrry cute!

Speaking of cute, don't forget to vote for my super cute necklace design!  (See original post here)

Yesterday I needed to drop some more clothes off at Sew Dandee, so we decided to make a date of it!  

Unburger is one of our favorite restaurants to visit in the city.  They use all fresh and local ingredients and unique combinations of toppings! 

My burger has a sunny side up egg, grilled pineapple, bacon, lettuce, cheese, and... Beets! It was ridiculously amazing. Did I mention they have bottles of coke? So awesome.

I hope you're all having an amazing weekend-now, off to swim in my parents pool!

Friday Makers Market

On Friday I had a table up at the Makers Market at The Frame.  I'd never been to this location and it was pretty cool! I would love to have walls like this as a photo backdrop!  The vibe was very cool and though it was a warm night there was a vendor selling cold soda which was a lifesaver-not to mention delicious!  If you've never been to the Makers Market you should really check it out!

Oh Canada

Canada Day weekend was awesome!  We helped my parents with the pool they are building in their backyard (so amazing!)

This little one had so much fun splashing!

Ate some amazing food

Enjoyed a crazy street festival in the hot hot heat

Stayed hydrated

And finished off with dinner on a patio.  What a great weekend!

Oh and in the afternoon to beat the heat we headed to the theater to see "Now You See Me" which was pretty awesome!  Here's a trailer in case you're interested :)

I realize that Canada Day comes before Independence Day but as it is July 4th I will share a Treasury I'm in today and what I did on Canada Day tomorrow!
Here's a beautiful rustic July 4th treasury by Frances Marin
Happy Independence Day to my US friends! :)
