Spineless Art.

December 29, 2010

I’m having a very cozy few days up in the Muskokas. Sitting by the fire, snow shoeing, skating, reading. I brought the newest issue of Living Ect., a new obsession remnant of my Summer in London. I love these one-page books as art from Spineless Classics, especially the Origin of Species!

Bold & Noble.

September 3, 2010

I stumbled upon this pretty print of the British Isles in type font. Bold and Noble are creating some very cute designs, and they do custom work too.

Missed Connections.

April 7, 2010

I’ve been secretly reading the missed connections section of Toronto’s Craigslist for years- They range from romantic to stalkerish. Brooklyn based Sophie Blackall has taken to painting some of her favorites, and has even started to sell the lovely prints on Etsy.

Homemade Valentine.

February 18, 2010

My bestie Chantale received the sweetest Valentine’s day gift from her new lover- A pretty homemade box and mix CD. I love the small touches and details… Here’s proof that romance isn’t dead ladies!

Monsieur’s Wish List.

December 6, 2009

The holidays are a double whammy for the bf and I- we both happen to have our birthdays near Christmas, mine a week before, and his a week after (New Year’s baby!) To ease the double gift stress we opted to obey this rule: thoughtful for birthday, useful for Christmas.

Below are some ideas I’ve been toying with…

{1. Planet Earth, the perfect winter series from the Discovery Channel. 2. Decadent chocolates from Galler. 3. Western Digital 500gb hard drive. 4. Shure headset 5. Barnaby leather messenger bag by Mulberry. 6. Canon EOS-1D Mark IV (I want this one for myself!) 7. A case of wine, Organized Crime from the Niagara region is amazing. 8. Art rental, from one month to a year. Check your local art gallery for more details. 9. Rare scotch by The Balvenie. 10. Concert poster, 11. Faces bar tool set via Williams Sonoma. 12. Kiehl’s ultimate man’s collection. 13. Harmonica. 14. Itunes gift card. 15. Cashmere sweater, Club Monaco. 16. GQ subscription.}

2010 Calendars.

November 27, 2009

Aren’t these gorgeous? I bought my grandmother the fifth one for Christmas. I’d love to frame each month and display them in my office (when I have one!)

In honor of my grandfather, who served in World War II, and to all the men and women who serve us now- Thank you.
