My cup of tea

Tamara Taggart, CTV news anchor, at The Cross Décor & Design, sipping tea.

It is so rewarding to be invited to events as a designer, more so when it is a Media event and you realize, Oh wait a minute…I am part of Media too (well, sort of, being only a blogger and not pretending to be anything else).
So this morning there was an event at The Cross Décor & Design, in Vancouver, for Media only (see above :) to present a new collection, of course there was also an excellent assortment of fragrant teas and a lusciously rich banana bread, but the most fun was to meet new people and to reconnect with friends.

I invite you now to go to The Cross blog and enjoy the Video shot at one of the best mansions in Vancouver, The Hycroft, where I also had the opportunity in the past to  shoot some of my B&W photography.  The video is called “Behind the Scenes” and talented Janis Nicolay was the still photographer.

Here are some of my images from today (I admit, lately I am using my iPhone…so easy to record moments)

And don’t forget…The Cross was named “Retailer of the year” in 2011, not just for their extraordinary collection of furniture, accessories, lighting, linens…but also for the professional and enthusiast team behind it.
