Pop Up Chapel August 11th, 2017………my sister got married!!!

MY SISTER GOT MARRIED!!!!!!!!  YYAahhhhhh

I was already involved in this amazing pop up chapel organized by the ridiculously talented Lynzie Kent at Love By Lynzie.  I was asked to create a large foliage backdrop for the ceremony portion of this pop chapel held at The Drake Hotel in downtown Toronto.  Lynzie mentioned that they were opening up a few more spots for more couples to get married and asked if i knew anyone…..i immediately sent the details to my sister Kelly asking her she and her fiancé Curtis wanted to get married……..she emailed back in less than 5 minutes with a YES and that was that.  Kelly & Curtis got married at a pop up chapel for $600 (proceeds by the way going to SKETCH Canada, we raised just under $6000 for SKETCH, a charity that empowers street involved youth and youth living on the margins (ages 16-29) through the arts.)

Bye bye Toronto…..Heeellloooooo Muskoka

Tanya List

Well I’ve been living in the city of Toronto for the last 13 years.  Wow…..can’t believe it….i think that officially makes me a touch older:)   To all of those people who have made me laugh while drinking too much wine, i just wanted to say thanks and i hope we all keep in touch:)

Ry, Reid and I are moving on to what hopefully (after a massive amount of renos) will be our forever dream home.  I can’t begin to tell you how amazing it feels. Don’t worry….tons of reno pics to come!!!  yyaaaaa.  BUT, for now, here are some pics of the  living room renos we did in our Toronto home.

A few tears fell as i drove away today.  Some very beautiful memories were created in that house.  It was the first house i ever called a home after leaving my parents so many years ago………

Furbish Studio (this is my dream)

Tanya List

I day dream often of owing a gorgous retail shop filled with nothing but bright coloured furniture, art, lighting and whatever else i might find along the way.  Furbish Studio located in Raleigh North Carolina is pretty much exactly what i had in mind.  I creep this website and blog i suwannee as many times a week as my life will allow.  Who knows…..maybe one day my dream will come true:)

Here is some of Furbish’s amazing designs:
