Sarah Richardson (and me), Edmonton Reno Show

This past weekend we Edmontonians were lucky to have the lovely Sarah Richardson stop by for a visit at the Edmonton Reno Show. Yes, the Sarah Richardson.  Canadian sweetheart, designer, producer, tv host - is there anything this girl can't do? My mom-in-law is also a fan and we grabbed some front row seats to check her out. As always she was chalk full of great advice and tips and, in general, such a lovely and charming little lady.

After the show, Sarah graciously stuck around to chat with her fans where I was able to "meet" her and nab an adorable photo of her and Tommy. I'm not going to lie, I was a bit starstruck. I'm pretty sure I blurted something unintelligent (something about liking that dragon fabric) before I was shuffled along.  Unfortunately, no chance for a photo op, but that's me down in the photo below with her in the background.
Totally counts ;)


I've really been enjoying the new Sarah 101, even when I don't 100% love all the rooms I always take something away from the show. That girl is a wealth of knowledge, I tell ya.  Can't wait for the new Sarah's House coming in the fall!

p.s. If you haven't heard of Sarah (um, my best friend I'm looking at YOU... seriously, how are we friends? I kid, I kid) go check her out here.

  2. OH my goodnessss. So lucky, Christine! She's my favorite designer. And definitely my favorite show on TV because she really takes you through the steps, unlike a lot of other designers. I will give you one million dollars for the signed autograph (;

    I'm so excited for Sarah's House to be back!

  4. Fun! I love her too, and always learn so much from watching her shows (although I agree, I don't always love the rooms so far on Sarah101 either).

  5. Glad you enjoyed yourself Christine... she really is so sweet right? I got to meet her @ IDS and get a photo.. I just won't share it on the blog as it's not very flattering of me hahaha.

  6. I was there on Saturday, what about you? I was on the other side where she spoke and about 3rd row. I LOVED it and while waiting for an autograph someone infront of me did mention the dragon material!! I squeaked out something about my house being ketchup & mustard and she said we should introduce a pebble color... Enter: Portobello!!! I'm already thinking like her!! Haha

  7. Yay! Sarah's the best :) Unfortunately, there was no meet-in-greet with Sarah at the WPG show so getting to chat with her (even if it was "unintelligent" as you say) is still super cool!
