On with our adventure to Sidney! We stopped just south of town centre, at Tulista Park, where the ArtSea Community Arts Council is (link here, all links 'cause I love). This building houses an art gallery - Mom's exhibited there in the past.
here), who is currently exhibiting.
I loved this one. Her husband (who was working at the table) hand-dyes many of the fabrics for her.
This was my favourite. She lived in the Yukon for twenty years, and many of her artworks are memories from that time.
From our impromptu art viewing, Mom and I walked along the waterfront at Tulista Park for a while, enjoying the gorgeous day.
It was aromatic!
Looking east, we could see Mt. Baker in Washington state.
There were loads of speedboats, whale-watching Zodiacs and sailboats. This is also not far from the Victoria airport, so there were jets and smaller planes taking off over us.
We stopped in at House of Lily Koi consignment.
I bought this metallic orange triangular bracelet for $18.00. I love that it's really small - most bangles are huge on me.
After picking up Mom's order, we headed for The Rumrunner Pub, our Sidney "regular" lunch spot.
Thanks for such a lovely day, Mom!
Mom dropped me off at the bus exchange and I headed to town to pick up some pens at the local art supply store. On my way home, I stopped in at the Velvet Crease for a quick browse, where I found two dresses.
This dress was on the half-price rack.
The back has a deep V and bronze snaps all the way down to the bottom.
This is indeed the Maja dress by Diane Von Furstenberg, which retailed for $398.00. The green version of this was worn by Kate (the Duchess of Cambridge) in 2011, so it's likely from around then.
It's actually a halter dress with a big pattern and a matching sash belt.
I had to pop into MONA (Make Old New Again) Consignment for a quick look too.
These are current Fluevogs, although they've been around a few years and are now on sale new for $179 from the original $299.
These are men's shoes - I wear a size 7 men/size 9 women.
They had a pair of very good quality leather inserts in them, which I've taken out.
They have a funky sole...for funky souls! "Know the Future, Decide Well Today."
Finally, I popped into Charmaine's Past and Present - they carry furniture, paintings, household décor and often interesting jewelry.
The deal was sealed when I saw "Vendome" on the clip.
It's time for me to check out for the long weekend, my friends! Have a good one - I'll be back on Sunday with tales of adventure (and we actually have plans!).
