Moda’s Blog Hop

Sunday, September 25th, 2011
Moda Blog Hop with Lily Ashbury Designs
I hope you’ve been enjoying all of the outstanding posts by so many talented Moda designers. When I was invited to be a part of this Blog Hop, I was thrilled because many of you may not know that I produce my designs while immersed in the sights, sounds and energy of my very own version of a Country Fair, right on my doorstep!

Granville Island Vancouver

What’s your favorite fair food?
I am truly blessed to work on Granville Island in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown core where it’s like a country fair all year long. Granville Island Public Market is bursting with fresh organic produce, artisanal cheeses, fresh bakery goodies and every kind of amazing food you can imagine. Lee’s Donuts is famous in Vancouver as having the best and freshest donuts in town. They have donut holes in lots of yummy flavors but every once in awhile I like to go big or go home. Their giant (really giant) fritters are truly amazing!!!

Lee's Donuts, Granville Island

What’s your guilty pleasure?
I wonder if I should admit this or not…oh what the heck! I like to stay up late drinking Pinot Grigio and bidding on crazy Ebay finds. I tend to go through buying sprees of similar things and end up with mini collections. Lately it has been vintage children’s tin tea sets and silver plated napkin rings. I will also admit that I once bought a bag of buffalo teeth (yes, you heard right). I am still trying to live that one down and I swear I will find a good use for them (really I will…).

Guilty Pleasures

What’s on your bucket list?
I have a very large bucket list so let’s hope I live a long life or I may run out of time. I am fortunate to have a wonderful husband who shares many of my dreams. Fraser and I have had our eye on a stunning 67’ classic motor yacht built in 1934. The M.V. Meander is moored on Granville Island which is also a busy boating community. One of our dreams is to own an historical vessel such as this and spend our summers slowly cruising up the coast among the many pretty little islands of the Pacific Northwest.

Bucket List

What inspires your work?
Inspiration is everywhere for me so it’s hard to put my finger on it. However, lately I have been doing collaborative drawings with my daughter Isabella. I am so inspired by the freshness of what she designs, she has no sense of right and wrong and it’s beautiful!


What movie do you watch again & again?

I love the “Shawshank Redemption” starring Tim Robbins. There is just something magical about that story and I have watched it many times. I must also admit I do rather like Tim Robbins’ cute smile…but shhh don’t tell my husband ;)

Tell us about your pet?
We have a very tenacious mini white Schnauzer named Maisy. She is a very smart and rather barky girl with a kind and loving temperment. Maisy has been through a lot in her 7 years. She has been hit by a truck, attacked by an Irish Wolfhound (nasty) and last year she accidentally ran off a 20 foot cliff. In each case she managed to get up and brush it off as though nothing happened which has earned her the well deserved nickname of “Sturdy Girl”. Isabella adores her and has promised her betrothel to Massimo a friends bulldog.

If you could be any age again for one week, what age & why?
I would be six years old so I could explain grown-ups to my daughter Isabella. On second thought maybe I’ll  wait until Izzy turns 14 and befriend her then. I was a bit of a terror at that age and she is very spirited so, well….you get the picture :)

And now it’s time for your craft!

When you’re at the country fair, why not be environmentally friendly and tote your own cutlery along with you! Download these instructions and make your very own Lily Ashbury Designs Cutlery Tote!

To further celebrate the Country Fair blog hop one of our Lily Ashbury team members, Sandy, has decided to enter the Second Annual Pie baking Contest here on Granville Island. The event is happening on September 29th as part of the Granville Island Fall Fest. With only 4 days left to choose a recipe, she’s looking for some inspiration from you!

Send us your recipe and win!

Pie Contest!

We are asking each of you to send us your most wacky or delicious pie recipe by leaving us a comment that includes a link to a recipe!

To thank you for taking the time to offer up your recipes, we’ll be randomly selecting six lucky winners to receive either a charm pack or layer cake of Moda Summer House fabric.

Calendar Giveaway Winner

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

A big congratulations to Lee who was selected using a random number generator and is the winner of a Lily Ashbury Do It All Calendar!

Lee wrote, “I am a list maker but even better than that, I find that walking from the mailbox to the trash can and then into the house means that I don’t bring a lot of extra clutter into the house. We always get so many fliers that just end up in the trash or recycling anyway, that just taking a few extra steps on the walk back into the house keeps me from accumulating trash in the house.”

Thanks to all of you who participated and shared with us your tips on getting organized!
