Custom Necklace

Last week I met with a lovely customer and passed along her custom made Treasure Necklace and Bracelet.  She chose a blue/teal/aqua combo.

(Hello L.!  Hope you enjoy them!)

Finding a Fall shoe

... or boot is always on my list!  I need something I can walk around endlessly in that is not a runner.  Not that I wear runners!?  Would be great if I could bike in them too, but I suppose I can always add a rubber sole!

Here's a little list of a few that I am contemplating
These are super cute and would go with anything, but may not be comfortable enough for tons of walking.  Might still buy 'em!  Love the metal combined with the tassel on the laces.
These would be so easy to slip on and go!  I even love the navy though they look almost black to me.  I think I am getting over my navy blue phobia.  It has only taken 16.5 years.   
These look so odd but I somehow like them.  I'd switch out the laces for something less "running shoe" and wear them with dresses.  I know -- bit weird, but they look like pillows for your feet!
Think I may have blogged a similar pair before.  Shearling plus clog sounds ideal to me!
Some lovelies from Toronto shoe haven Chasse Gardée.  These with a pair of socks qualify as walking shoes, no?

A. and I tried these on the other day.  The leather is so buttery!  And they are comfortable!
These look much like the Lanvin boots my sis and I coveted last year, and as much as you don't want to support a knock off, these are much more affordable.  
This pair is for you, Miss S.  These are some good-looking nude oxfords!  And they are on sale!

That's it for now!  And the search continues!

Matchy matchy!

Met up with C.N. yesterday and had a nice little catch-up! She did some shopping around the city and also picked up an Entwined Bracelet!  We customized the colour combo of the bracelet just for her and then it turned out to match her new Orla Kiely bag perfectly!

Yesterday was a beautiful day... today, not so much.  Hope the rain goes away!  Have a happy weekend!

Pretty teas

I have an addiction to liquids... more specifically, beverages.  Give me some tea, coffee, water and beer (not necessarily in that order) and I'm a happy gal!  Other beverages are also appreciated!

I've been enjoying my assortment of teas that I got from Marks & Spencer when I was in Bermuda. Admittedly, I picked these up 'cause I thought the packaging was cute.  But, they are excellent!  My favourite is the Pure Peppermint.  Wish we still had Marks & Sparks in Toronto!

Front & Company is re-stocked!

Loads of new things have arrived at Front & Company!  This season they picked up tonnes of jewels with a special focus on pieces made with delicious vintage bits and bobs.  Check out the huge variety of hair pins, studs and more!
And for a fun read, have a look at their blog!

Vancouver, BC


This throw from the Missoni for Target collection is so fab!  Love the retro colour palette and the cozy texture and fuzziness of it.  I do enjoy the classic Missoni print. Plus I have way overexerted myself lately and all I can think of right now is curling up and going to sleep.  Plan on taking it easy in the  week ahead and catching up on rest.
Oh!  I'm pretty into this bike too!  Alas, both of these items are out of stock... of course.

Dining around

Seem to be gorging non-stop lately.  Here are some photos from only a few of the food-stops along my way of eating ridiculous amounts over the past few weeks.  Not sure why I feel compelled to take pics of my food...  Last night we had a multi-course feast before Aunt E. leaves town today. The resto owner was barking at us to take photos of the meal but I refrained.
Coffee and donuts at Little Nicky's.
Remember Chiclets?  I liked the fruity ones best.
I didn't eat this odd tomato, but the Big Fat Burrito was mighty tasty!
Pork and rapini at Porchetta & Co.
Big family BBQ at Aunt I.'s place.  
(My Friend's presence was requested and so he came too.)

It was a fun and busy week!  Caught up with a bunch of different friends over some of the food above... saw Pearl Jam at the ACC... actually hung out with my neighbours after living on two sides of the same wall for 9 years... finished a crafty side-project... and got lots of work done!  And now for the weekend.  Hope you have a good one!  There is so much going on in the city.  Hope to pack a whole lot in...

A visit at Kid Culture!

Our friend Clare has opened up an adorable children's store called Kid Culture!  She's filled the shop with wares from local design stars including Candi Factory, Blushing Maple and Cathy Peng and more.
Yesterday I popped by for a lunch visit and to check out the new digs.  Congrats to Clare and her family on all the hard work!  It's looking great! The shop's in the heart of the Junction at 2986 Dundas Street West (right next door to Narwahl.)  Poke in if you are in the 'hood!

MoonRox now at Mocha Violet!

A fantastic flower shop called Mocha Violet in Ridgetown, Ontario is now carrying a very nice selection of MoonRox!  Here are some of the gems that they picked up:
Tiny Umbrella Necklace
Rose Hair Pins
Feather Earrings
Twinkle Gem Earrings
Disc Earrings

Visit the shop to see more... or perhaps to pick up a little something!  Mocha Violet is so much more than a flower shop, carrying jewellery (obviously!) and a great selection of home wares.

New arrivals at Pretty Chic Boutique

A new crop of MoonRox has arrived at Pretty Chic Boutique. Pop in the store to see the Floating Crystal Bauble Necklace and more!

These are some random photos that I've snapped lately on my phone.  
Piles of fruit...
 Sunset in the city...
Dress shopping with the Sister
Mint manicure with chocolate and sprinkles too...
 Patio dinner with S. 
Sun-dappled afternoon tea.

With most of my of work load cleared, for now, I took the weekend off and didn't think much of jewellery and such.  Really, I think I spent the entire weekend eating and drinking. Too many late nights in a row for this lady!  But I feel like I need to take advantage of life and do as much as a can.  Sometimes it's nice to pack the schedule with way too much!  Might need a few days to recover.  

Over the past few weeks our extended family has been able to spend some quality time together since the passing of my Grandmother.  Terrible circumstances, but it's definitely nice to see my Dad and his three sisters all together!  It's a fairly rare occurrence.  

In the next little while, I hope to re-organize my work space so that I am in good form for the busy season ahead.  Plus I need to compile a mental check list of things I want to do.  I want to plan a trip... I want to dig out the brushes and push the paints around a bit.  Have a few other creative endeavours and home improvements planned as well.  And I need to do more cooking... and go apple picking!

I really have to check myself and stop and appreciate that we have all these little pleasures, especially on days like September 11th.  Life is so fleeting.

Hope you had a nice weekend too.
