It belonged to a Mr Stephen who co- founded and first President of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
In 2006, the Mount Stephen Club celebrated its 80th anniversary. Founded by a group of Montreal businessmen, the Club started in 1926 on the estate of George Stephen, co-founder and first President of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The house, built between 1880 and 1883, is located in the heart of downtown Montreal, in an area known as the Golden Square Mile, once the wealthiest residential neighbourhood in Canada. It is one of the last intact mansions of the area and one of most beautiful examples of late Victorian Renaissance architecture in North America. The grandiose, yet muffled ambience, as well as the fine cuisine of the Mount Stephen Club have turned this home into a privileged place for business meetings and private gatherings or quite simply, refined meals in a quiet and private setting.

This was the inspiration
Yesterday was a grey, rainy, cold day here in Montreal – but this is April weather for us.
The weather is a major subject of discussion here- I get so tired of all complaining, what can we do? – nothing! Well like I said to someone today - talk to customer service up there -see what she or he can do to solve your weather crisis -
It is a total waste of energy complaining about the weather – should concentrate on what is good around you- We live in a very safe city- we do not have tsunamis or nuclear station blowing in our face – we should be blessed if we have good friends, family- what is important is what is going on between our 2 ears – be happy – be positive – the warm weather is be here soon and then will be complaining that it is too hot can’t win!
I am happy no problem with the weather still layering and loving it.
Think of what makes you happy - the simple things…like me – love my walk in closet, love my shoe collection, love my zillion clothes, my cat, my boyfriend, my kids - the list goes on and on…
Yesterday I wore my keep me warm and comfy but make me happy outfit!
Nothing fancy nice sometimes to be real comfy

Dress – Forever 21 on sale
Legging jeans – Ardene
Jacket – Spanner – thrifted at YWCA – Fringues et Cie ( Montreal)
