Harriett's moving to Canada!

I think its about time I shared with our lovely readers the exciting,
yet utterly terrifying news. On the 16th of August this year, I will 
be moving to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Although I always new
I would be moving back to the home of my boyfriend Travis for
quite some time, the big move has been rushed due to the difficulty in
him obtaining another UK visa.

Although its going to break my heart to leave Aimee behind, I
can assure you we will keep blogging, in fact we have some
really great plans in the pipe line for our little Internet space,
which we shall reveal to you all very soon! 

So please be patient if my blogs are few and far between for the 
next couple of weeks, I have 7 years worth of collecting vintage
to transport half way across the world!

 I'm going to leave you with some of my favourite candid photos
of me and Aimee over the last two years, this is the end of an era, 
but the start of a new more exciting one. I can't wait for her to 
come visit me on the other side of the Atlantic, smother each other
in maple syrup then thrift shop till the sun goes down.

Harriett xx

P.s. You will all have to look after Aimee!


  1. I just discovered this blog a few weeks, but I love it, and I admit I got a little excited when I saw Harriet was moving to Edmonton.
    I live an hour south of Edmonton and went to school there - It's a beautiful city with lots of history. I bet it's scary and exciting, but with the Internet you'll be able to keep in touch.
    Best of luck to you both <3

    PS - If you need a comrade to explore the shops with, let me know. ;)

  2. Ah wow, i'm so excited for you! I'm sure it will be so much fun to have two sides to you blog one from Canada, one from London. I am looking forward to the plans you guys have made. I'm glad you are keeping it going as you are one of my new favourites. x

  3. I'm green with envy! Good luck with the move xx

  4. aww :( End of an era, but I'm sure the bright young twins will be reuinted. Good luck with the move dinks. Love the last pic x

  5. Aww, I'm sorry to hear you will be apart but I'm happy you will both still be blogging and seeing each other!!

  6. Oh that is so sad, but also very exciting adventure! You two are just gorgeous, love the last photo, so refined! x

  7. Aww, I'm sure that this will just hold wonderful new experiences for you. So happy to find this blog! You two are adorable.

  8. Thanks so much for all your kind comments ladies! It is certainly going to be one hell of an adventure!
    Laurie where abouts do you live? My boyfriends mum is from red deer and I hear the thrifting there is amazing!

    Harriett xx

  9. Wishing you lots of luck with your move Harriett. It's always hard being so far away from a much loved friend, but it gives you both a great excuse to go and visit each other for a holiday! :)

  10. It's a shame; I just discovered your blog and you announce a bad news!;)
    I will definitely follow your blog from now on in order to see what you'll come up with when in Canada!

  11. So sad but exciting at the same time! I'm sure you will have so much fun exploring a new country but it's sad the two f you won't be together! I'm excited to see how the two of you make it work! :)

  12. Oh how exciting! Well. As you'll know if you ask your boyfriend - I'm from Calgary, so I have to declare that Edmonton is NOT exciting nor the best city in Alberta ;) But we sure could use more vintage loving girls in this province! I just discovered your blog through Solanah the other week, but maybe if you're only 3 hrs away we'll meet up some day. Whyte Ave has some good vintage shops...but nothing compared to the UK.

  13. Aw rueby I know all about the calgary/edmonton rivalry, but after visiting both
    Cities I have to confess I'm an Edmonton girl! I know the vintage shopping is
    A little poor but the finds I made in the thrift stores well made up for it! X

  14. my best friend and i have a cross country blog we do together, and it's worked out wonderfully, although it would be nice to live close together again.
    <3 betty,
    p.s. i love the grumpy grandma photo!!

  15. I know exactly how that feels. My best friend lives in Stuttgart, Germany and I'm here in southern Virginia, USA. The distance really stinks, but whenever she comes back stateside, I always hop in my car and drive to visit her. Hitting up Las Vegas in October for a crazy weekend! The trick is to plan super-special trips (your trip to Berlin for example) and to chatter with each other as much as you can. If you guys ever find yourself in the good ole US of A, feel free to come down for a visit!

  16. Thanks everyone for your kind comments and it looks like Hatties already got some new pals via the blog! :)!

    @Puff's Mommy its gonna suck but we're going to do exactly that. Me and Jess are going to do fund raising every month so we can buy a plane ticket to come see Harriett next year. We're also gonna do a bit of a rag mill tour of the USA after, if we end up where you are we'd love to meet you.

    Aimee xx

  17. OH welcome to Canada!!!! I would have you over for some tea but unfortunately Toronto is still almost half way around the world from Edmonton. I hope everything goes smoothly with the move, and I think you will enjoy Canada, we love foreigners and think they are special, which you are.

  18. I just read you're moving to Edmonton. I was born and raised there. One piece of advice: pack lots of very warm clothing for the HARSH winters there. There are some fun things to see and do (Whyte Avenue, university area), the River Valley is pretty in the fall....but...uh...good luck!
