Christmas came really, really early at my house this year. I’m never that organized. Unless I have to be. And this year I had to be.
Canadian Tire shot a series of videos at my place to launch the new CANVAS line. So I got super festive even decorated a tree for my kid (who is way too young to appreciate it).
It’s essentially a giant tower of tinsel covered in colourful ornaments and chalkboard baubles.
Santa would totally approve. Take a look!

Y’all are a generous bunch. Thanks to you, we raised a whopping $6,250,016 for BC Easter Seals at Timmy’s Christmas Telethon this year.
THANK YOU!!! And thank you, Team Easter Seals for having me again this year! I always have so much fun.

I’ve been working a lot with Easter Seals this year — at woman2warrior and, as evidenced by the picture above, at their terrifyingly terrifying Drop Zone.
It’s a nausea-inducing rappel down the side of an office building in downtown Vancouver.
Which, if you actually look over the edge, has a beautiful view of the water, mountains and tiny little people 20 storeys below.
I was scared. So scared.
But I did it!
And tomorrow night I’ll be supporting Easter Seals at Timmy’s Telethon, co-hosting the social desk for my third year in a row with the lovely Bianca Solterbeck (Sunday, December 7th from 6:00-8:00). Tweet at us @TimmysTelethon or holler at us on Facebook and we’ll share your stories on the air!
P.S. I’ll also be sharing behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram so follow @KelseyDundon.

I’m a big fan of handmade things. I’m just not a big fan of handmaking them. I’d much prefer someone else do that for me. So I’ve picked a few of my favourite handmade holiday gifts, all of which you can find on Etsy.
1. Peach and Gold Dish ($32.75) by Up in the Air Somewhere.
2. Pastel Drip Nesting Doll ($82.37) by Sketch Inc.
3. Harrold the Jellyfish ($73.22) by Sara Carr.
4. Aspen Magazine Holder ($140.35) by Ciseal.
5. Slip Cast Porcelain Hanging Planter ($29.74) by Bean and Bailey.
6. Tonala Pequena Zip Wallet ($60.82) by Vancouver’s own scout and catalogue.
7. Nodo Outdoor Chair ($608.19) by Petrified Design.
8. Columns Cushion Cover ($50.65) by Si Sauvage.
Now forward this to Santa — or your Secret Santa — and your holiday wish list is complete!

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver).
To the rescue! A behind-the-scenes look at a promo I shot for Wardrobe Rescue, which I’m doing with Metropolis at Metrotown and Global TV + a beautifully embellished skirt I’d love to have in my wardrobe.
Moody greens. A beach in Tofino + a forest in the morning light.
Orange you glad? A trip to the pumpkin patch + a stylish young lady rocking pumpkin orange.
The holidays! I dressed my house up early this year for a holiday decor shoot for Canvas by Canadian Tire at my place + a whole world of wreaths.
Werk! My very cluttered desk (with a ring from Vincent Park) + a far less cluttered workspace.
Selfie! How did Kumiko Ide and I finish a day spent running a social media boot camp at SFU? With a selfie(!) + an inspiringly bright desk.
P.S. There are more photos where these came from so add The Anthology on Facebook and follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.

‘Tis the season to light up long, dark nights. How? One of two ways: with a stunning brass chandelier (my dining room needs this) or a party-perfect sequin skirt.
Where: The stunning Dandelion 32 Chandelier by Tony Duquette.
Wear: A sequin skirt from Anthropologie.
