We had a showing last night and apparently it went very well - the people that came to visit stayed for over an hour ( which is apparently a good sign ) We'll see.................
In the meantime when I found out they were coming I ran down to Atwater Market ( 5 minutes away from me ) We're so lucky to have such a gorgeous Farmer's Market in downtown Montreal.
When I was growing up it was a meat market ( not the 70's disco type - but a real MEAT market ) and it was quite disgusting really - blood all over the floors -animals hanging all over the place - it's since been gentrified and quite the place to spend an afternoon.
Care to spend some time there with me?
Let's go !!!
Are these not the cutest things???
Okay - I've selected my miniature pumpkins ( as cute as these are they're not staging material for selling a house lol - I chose plain ones ) I was going to get 4 or 5 of these for the dining room table LOL
Ok - that's me tugging on your arm now - let's gooooo - I need flowers - the viewing is in 3 hours !!!
This is going to be harder then I thought .................
I can't choose !!!
These next ones are not real - but I just love them
I used to pick up big bunches of flowers from here every Friday - haven't done it in awhile -
Oh look - here's an indoor florist - let's run inside quick
AGGGHHH - do you see what I see????
Cotton !!! Well I never picked cotton .......................and I never even knew what it looked like until I started blogging - but now Y'ALL know I have to have some of that ( do they last forever like dried flowers ? )
OK - I've picked my flowers :)
Time to scurry home and cut them up.
Now I'm seeing some food I'd like to decorate with too!!!
We've stayed far too long - once again I'm going to be racing the clock to get things done :)
2 bright single pink gerbera's for the office will do nicely - it's too tiny a room to overcrowd it with flowers but this is a nice punch of color against the deep grey wall.
and some Cotton in the bathroom ( are you supposed to put water in the vase with these???? )
Now some giant hydrangeas for the dining room
The entrance way could use a small arrangement
A couple of these miniature hydrangeas can sit on top of books in the living room
And lastly a small vase for the small table in the kitchen :)
This was the last thing I saw as I left the market by the way - a pumpkin vase !!!
What a beautiful idea - and a fabulous hostess gift for Thanksgiving dinner - ( if you're lucky enough to not be the one cooking it every single year )
I finished with 10 minutes to spare lol - and we were out the door with Soda !!
Have a great Tuesday all :)
I've got some miniature pumpkins to paint !!!
