15,000 rosaries at the Gladstone Hotel | a stack of pancakes at the Drake

Each year I find myself looking forward to this particular weekend. If you haven’t been able to tell from my relatively lame Monday posts these days, for the most part wintry weekends are pretty low key in our household. We typically make it out for brunch, and perhaps the odd movie, but apart from that we tend to stay within the confines of our cozy condo. But this one is a always little different. Not only does the Interior Design show grace us with its presence, but the Gladstone Hotel holds its annual art installation: Come Up To My Room. It’s a weekend filled with art and design and inspiration of the very best kind. It always leaves me feeling incredibly inspired and ready to take on the week ahead. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, art does fabulous things for ones soul.

    I love the Gladstone- I’ve stayed there (and at the Drake – yummy breakfasts!) multiple times since moving out of TO. Never been to Come Up To My Room but I always enjoy the art in the hallways and choosing which room I’ll book!

    Haha! My weekends have been the same. Pretty lazy and laid back and then all of a sudden we had a jamb packed fun weekend! Looks like you had a great one! Were the rosaries part of the interior design event?!?

      They were part of the art exhibit. That room smelt SO good! Each one was handmade from actual rose petals. Insane!
