Another Trip to Victoria

December 10, 2011


I hope you’re enjoying the Christmas season – December is my favorite month. Chocolate every day(literally… love the advent calendar my mom sent me!), Christmas lights everywhere and most TV series have great Christmas episodes (e.g. the latest the office episode…). Unfortunately, December also means lots of exams and a crazy amount of homework. My friend Katja and I decided to go to Victoria for a day because let’s face it, nobody stays on campus for three weeks straight and spends every day studying.

We had a relaxed day wandering around downtown, exploring cute boutiques and cafés. We found a really great café called ‘Wild Coffee’ with the most beautiful interior design. The handcrafted chairs and couches were stunning, the atmosphere was cozy and the food was great 🙂

Of course we couldn’t resist some thrift shopping. In contrast to most thrift stores in Vancouver, the thrift stores in Victoria are reasonable priced. Along with some books I also found what I’ve been looking for for ages:

Granny Square Blanket

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this beauty – isn’t she gorgeous?
I love love love the colors and it was cheap, too 🙂

There are some threads that wait to be sewn up – it makes me sad to imagine a person working on the blanket for months (or even years?) yet having to give up when it’s almost done. I’ll finish it tonight while watching a movie.
