Boho Boutique: Folk Art Interiors, Vancouver BC

This weekend was filled with firsts.

For a person who has lived in Vancouver for four-and-a-half years, there are a remarkable number of things I haven’t done, places I haven’t been. On Saturday I went snowshoeing on Grouse Mountain and today I bopped on over to Spanish Banks for an easy-like-Sunday-morning walk.

And what’s a basic betch going for walk without a coffee in hand? Queue another first: Grounds for Coffee – and their famous cinnamon buns. I didn’t even stop to take a picture before inhaling my sticky little bun. (Thanks for turning me onto Grounds, Jenn Lee!)


Floating on a cozy sugar high, I am walking back to the Jeep when what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a shop crowned with vintage antlers?

With vibes like that, how could I not?








And of course, what should I find but a dust-laden, rolled-up, hairy, disheveled carpet. I couldn’t have found that thing faster if it had been calling me by name.

I didn’t stand a chance.


So I just spent the last hour-and-a-half beating fifteen years of dust out of this beast. (It’s 11′ long!) Vacuum, lint brush and voila! A magic carpet for my blooming boho pad.
