Some quirky finds

I love all teas, as long as there is no milk in there. I have bags of loose organic herbal teas from Sweet Dove Herbs and a variety of green and black teas from Mariage Frères. This little silicone sub would be perfect!

I've been wanting a shag rug, but I shed too much and send too many beads and wires flying to make such a thing possible. Here's the solution, though it will not feel the same under ones toes!

Looks like my fave granola and fruit breakfast and I never drink milk (bad, I know) but spilt milk is fine!

This guy is too cute!
These are too funny...

These are awfully sweet!

I found all these while on the phone with the bank dealing with a nightmare. I will not know if it's resolved until Tuesday. Ok, time to get a bit of work done before I can officially call it the weekend. Hope everyone has a nice one!

Cream and green

I spotted the Brass Flower Earrings in a treasury by emmsgems on Etsy. The earrings are on SALE! Check them out here. To see the treasury click here.

Leather goodness

I wish I could touch these buttery looking sacs by Ilemi Paris. The braided handle reminds me of making boondoggle bracelets at summer camp, but in the best dreamy Summer day kind of way! I think I favour the dark grey bag on the left of the first photo.

Hello in print

Hello! I like this print by Jennifer Ramos of Made By Girl. Buy it in her shop and read her blog.

I think this would look nice in my door way...

Some more goodies at Noinkee's

A few more MoonRox pieces have arrived at Noinkee's in Orangeville, but I hear from owner Miyeko that some things flew out the door as she unpacked them! Love that people are enjoying the jewels! Above is a Bubble Bauble Bracelet and below is a Bakelite Ring.
Visit the shop to check things out! They also have lots of other nice wares! Here's a post from when I visited the shop last month.

I like Marimekko

I spent the afternoon furniture shopping with my Sis and found lots of nice things, but we were well behaved and didn't bring anything home with us, unless you count some brussel sprouts!

So, this evening, I have been perusing a few sites in search of inspiration for a home refresh/re-organize. I love this image found on the Marimekko site. These floor cushions are too fun. I am also enjoying these dresses for Spring 2010, especially the simple yellow and white one. I have some vintage Marimekko fabric that I may have to fashion into a dress one of these days.

New shoes

While in the area of Frock the other day, I may have accidentally bought a pair of Summer shoes. I have a thing for jellies, and these perforated Melissa numbers in a greenish teal were on sale at Frock's sister store, Imelda. Such a great name for a shoe store! Despite the lack of snow around these parts this season, it is officially still Winter, so I may have to hold off on wearing the candy scented (!) lovelies for a while. Today was really nice and sunny. People were out strolling the streets and I spotted plenty of bicycles and motorbikes out. Maybe warmer days are not that far away?

Great ad

It has been a sad morning so far, but this commercial is bound to make you smile. I didn't really want to post an ad here, nor am I likely to buy this car, but I would think about the Soul. This commercial is far too amusing!

Family Day

It's the Family Day holiday here in Ontario. I'm spending the day hermit-ing after a family day yesterday while still recovering from V.'s birthday celebrations on Saturday. I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's and Chinese New Year. Above is a family photo from the late seventies, as if you could not tell! Thinking of family near and far and here and departed.

Eve of the Year of the Tiger

Kung Hey Fat Choy!
Happy Chinese New Year!
My family doesn't really follow any specific customs. We just eat! Hope the year of the tiger brings health and prosperity to all.

In a treasury

Monicaj sent a nice message to say that the Fancy Bracelet is featured in a Treasury. Check it out here.
Then I went to her shop to see what she makes and saw cute stuff like this Autumn Brooch No. 3.

Thanks Monicaj!

Amazing PET creations

I have been following the work of Gulnur Ozdaglar since I found the artist's blog when clicking the 'next blog' tab repeatedly one day. (This 'next blog' method is not normally very fruitful!) Ozdaglar's work is all made using recycled PET bottles. I was happy to these PET buttons on d*s today. Such smart and creative work. It has a light and airy ethereal feel.
