Wordless Wednesday — Meeting Vern Yip!

by Dagmar Bleasdale on July 30, 2014

Vern Yip and Dagmar Bleasdale

I’m posting Wordless Wednesday a day late because yesterday I was in New York City to interview HGTV star Vern Yip in his Manhattan apartment! Squeal!

He just updated his apartment with beautiful, sustainable cork flooring, and I learned a lot of new things about the advantages of cork. I also found out that his partner is from Germany, which is so neat.

I had the most wonderful time talking to him about eco-chic design and more, but you’ll have to come back for a whole blog post about that. Wait until you see the view Vern has from his apartment!

Once I got home, I raced to pick up L from camp early and drove him to the track so he could participate in some races they had there for his running camp.

He came in first for long jump and he raced his heart out in three races.

Wordless Wednesdayribbons for running racesI was really impressed with how hard he ran — I didn’t have that kind of determination about sports when I was his age. He definitely gets that from Don.

I’m not adding a linky this week, but don’t miss your opportunity to win this chic JORD wood watch!

And you can add your post to the latest “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party. I went to two tag sales and came home with half a car load of treasures. Let me know if you would keep or sell those two pictures.

I watch HGTV all day while blogging — do you have a favorite Vern Yip show?

We got our play kitchen when she was 19 mhtnos old (her new baby brother got it for her ) I have to say they have played with it in some way, shape, or form just about every day since then. They both like to pretend to cook. She washes her babies in the little sink His cars get snacks from the fridge . It’s a winner! Off to see your post now!
