My friend JZ recently sent over some pictures from his summer trip to Greece (more specifically, the Ionian Islands). I’m always envious of people who get to experience all the white scenery in Greece. I will make it there one day, that’s forsure, but for now, I’m happy to stare at these gorgeous photos…and dream.
Many thanks to JZ for sharing these photos.
Has anyone read this book? I’m so interested in seeing what it’s got to say!

Photographer Lisa Steadman captures everyday objects in such a beautiful way. The colour and composition in each of these images completely catches my attention.
How wonderful that these photos are available for purchase at such affordable rates on Lisa’s Etsy shop, Diem Design.

I haven’t worn a watch in years but in the last few months I’ve been on the lookout for a great white one. I’ve seen (and posted about) some cool watches but I wasn’t able to commit to one because I wasn’t entirely sure I’d make use of it. Why spend the money if I’m not going to wear it, right?
Imagine how happy I was when I spotted this white watch at Target! It was way below the $20 mark so I just had to buy it. I’ve been wearing it every day but I’m not yet in the habit of looking at it to find out the time. Go figure.

p.s. I also bought it in wild yellow too. Surprise!
Well – my three week mini tour of the USA is now over. After Chicago and Florida, I headed to Manhattan to spend time with my family. My nephews kept me thoroughly entertained and in between naps (theirs and mine), I experienced some of what the city has to offer.

It’s always sad when vacations come to an end, isn’t it? These past three weeks were full of laughter, delicious meals and quality relaxation time. I’m so thankful that I had this amazing travel opportunity. And yes, I’m already eager to go on another travel adventure!

It’s no secret that I love IKEA. I’m a truly devoted fan. This is why I’m so happy to spread the news about IKEA’s new textiles Although there is plenty of colour in the collection, it is the black and white JULITA that really catches my attention. It’s like one big glorious doodle.

In the past I’ve used IKEA fabric to sew carry-on bags, beach totes, makeup cases, baby blankets and a yoga mat bag. I’ve also used it to recover my teak chairs. It’s been durable and so easy to work with.
What have you made lately with IKEA fabric?
My mini tour of the United States continues to go well. Even though this is a Florida-related post, I’m actually posting from Manhattan where I’ll be spending a few days with family before I head back to “real life”.
The Florida portion of my vacation was the ultimate in terms of relaxation. I fully adopted Floridian ways and moved at a much slower pace than I’m used to. Loved every minute I spent at the pool, beach and shopping. Here are some photos from my trip.

Greetings from Florida! I thought I’d take a break from working on my tan (I know, hard work, right?) to post a vacation update.
Although my friend Shannon and I are in Florida at the moment, our US tour actually began in Chicago. We spent four amazing days eating our way through the city. We also saw some incredible art and made time for shopping too (of course!). This was my second time in Chicago and I’m happy to say that I loved it as much as I did the first time around. The city has so much to offer and the people are so friendly.
Today I thought I’d share five of my favourite photos from the trip.
As always, thanks for reading White Cabana!
