We also took part in our first collaboration project with our friend and local designer, Tony Chestnut.
And one of the most exciting moments of the year - we revealed the exterior of our trailer turned mobile shop!
We hit the road with our trailer to a number of different fairs, where we did our first "what we wore" post.
We also did a post about our first official event with Olive, which was at the Niverville Fair! How exciting!
We had the privilege of doing another very exciting interview this summer, this time for our local newspaper, the Winnipeg Free Press!
The biggest festival that we participated in this summer with Olive was the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, which was 12 days long and during a heat wave! Whew.
In July we got the very exciting news that we would be moving into a local vintage store, Vintage Glory, and taking over the womens section!
We are really obsessed with decorating our homes, and loved sharing tips on how to decorate a retro modern home!
We were asked to do a guest post on our friend Katie's blog, where we shared a DIY decorating cute vintage suitcases!
We also received really frustrating news about our potential store move, not to worry though, everything worked out for the best!
Later that month we collaborated with a bunch of local talented ladies and did a magical fall forest photoshoot, which later got featured on 100 Layer Cake! Yay!
Then we took off on a whirlwind trip to Thailand, to get some inspiration for our new shop and to relax before we opened our doors!
In the beginning of December we opened the doors to our brand new vintage boutique, Rhymes With Orange! That really was a dream come true! Our friend, Rosie, took photos of our shop and we shared them in a 2 part post here and here.
We also had a fantastic grand opening party with friends and family to celebrate! That truly was a night to remember.
And last but not least, we shared peeks into what Christmas looks like in our homes. It was a Cozy Christmas at the Thiessen Home and an Atomic Christmas in the Hiebert House!
Thanks for a fantastic first year in blogland! We can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us!
