A day with Tobi Fairley

My dear friend Ivan Meade has created a special occasion today generously inviting a small group of local designers to welcome the talented Interior designer and blogger Tobi Fairley on her first visit to Vancouver.
A wonderful day of sunshine, a delicious brunch in the luxury "Loden" boutique hotel, a gift for every guest plus a boutonniere to bring home, smart conversation and the opportunity to meet in person so many talented people.
Even if I knew already the work of Tobi Farley, Amie de Toro, Victoria Lambert (who shares with Kelly the blog Design Ties) and Kimberly Williams, it was a great pleasure to be introduced to them.
Echo Eaton, Patricia Gray and Michelle Morelan were already close to my heart.
Unfortunately my pictures did not result in a success, the only one barely acceptable, which does not even start to give justice to the beauty of the two ladies, is the one below the title (Tobi on the left, Echito on the right) but I am sure we'll see more beautiful pictures of the event on other blogs, so please click on each highlighted names to know more about our special day or to appreciate what each of these people create.
I felt so privileged to be invited, thank you dear Ivan for planning this event so carefully in every detail and thanks to beautiful Echito for helping organize it.
Tomorrow...brunch at the Vancouver Art Gallery!

A wonderful day with wonderful ladies!! It was nice to see you, as always, Albarosa.

I wish I could have been there -- it would have been great meeting our BC blogger buddies and Tobi :-)

I'm looking forward to hearing more about the event and seeing pictures. Victoria hasn't told me anything about it!!

Hey! Michelle, I am not a lady eh! (lol) even if sometimes I behave like one (lol) It was a fun event - we need to do this more often.

Hi Albarosa
What a wonderful and memorable event it was. The fabulous and extremely talented Ivan out did himself in hosting this event. It was great to meet the lovely Tobi Fairley and to get together with other like minded individuals, and as always it was a pleasure to be in your company Albarosa!!

How wonderful it was to be included as a guest to this lovely event!! More wonderful, however, was meeting you Albarosa... and of course Tobi, Ivan, Patricia, Kimberley, Amie & Echo. Conversation was engaging... but I DO wish I'd had more of a chance to meet with you. Perhaps another time?! I'd definitely like to be invited to another Ivan coordinated event because he's such a fantastic organizer and host!!
All the best,

Oh, I am so jealous! It sounds like such fun.
I love all of you Vancouver bloggers.
Tobi's work is beautiful. What a treat to get to meet her in person.

Albarosa, It was lovely to see you at lunch too!

Tobi Fairley said...

Albarosa, I LOVED meeting you in Vancouver! Thank you for coming to my fabulous brunch but especially for being my tour guide to the Vancouver Museum! You have so much knowledge about the arts that it was mind boggling!I am certainly more educated because of our time together and for that I also thank you! I hope to see you again soon!
