A custom bracelet

Had the pleasure of making a special Mother's Day gift for talented illustrator Emily Taylor to surprise her lovely mom. Worked her mother's father's R.C.A.F. button in with a sparkly mix of crystals and chains to make an asymmetrical bracelet. Having always had a great connection to my own grandparents, I was so happy to work on this!

Spreading the good vibes! A GIVEAWAY!

Over the past couple weeks I have had a lot of things go my way.  Some small things, like perfect connections on transit, a table at a busy restaurant right when you walk in... some things big!  Hoi Bo, the maker of my favourite bags had an Instagram photo contest to win this navy Pleated Satchel and I won!  I never win anything!  I was so excited as I have a few pieces from Hoi Bo and use them on the regular and had been coveting this beauty!  I am one lucky gal!  Felt so lucky I went and bought a lotto ticket and though I haven't checked it, I am pretty sure I must have won!  Haha!

Check out the Hoi Bo website to see all of their amazing bags and clothing!  So many gorgeous things!
Anyhow, I thought I would spread some happiness and good karma and offer up a giveaway of our own on our Facebook and/or Instagram pages!  Look for the photo above and follow the instructions for a chance to win this Cascade Necklace!  It's a necklace that combines a variety of chains with vintage acrylic jewels.  It looks great dressed up for a formal evening or my personal favourite thing to do, draped over a simple t-shirt.  Good luck with the contest!  We'll choose a winner on Thursday, May 14th, 2015 at 3pm.

Cherry Blossoms 2015

Not sure if I will get a chance to see the cherry blossoms in High Park this year.  I did pass by the trees in bloom at Robarts Library on the U of T campus the other day.  Here are some of photos.  As I said in the last post, I love Spring and everything about it.  So thanks for indulging me and my many flower photos on this blog!
This is the 3rd year that I have caught these trees in bloom.  They have grown so much in that time.  I think cherry blossoms take me back to our first childhood home that had two big trees in the front yard.  I can still picture the loveliest shade of pink (darker than these ones here) and feel the soft velvety petals between my fingers.

Oh, and by the way... I have been on a lucky streak of good karma over that past couple weeks, so I wanted to share some of the good vibes!  Stay tuned for a fun giveaway this week.

Until then...


Happy Mother's Day!

Hope all the mommies had a wonderful Mother's Day and were super spoiled today!

Hope you had a nice weekend.  It was gorgeous here.  I love Spring the most.  It's my absolute favourite time of year.  Especially May.  Everything is in bloom and trees are that lovely and fleeting fresh green colour.  Flowers are everywhere!  Cherry blossoms, magnolias... love them all.  People are in a great mood and out of hibernation.  I could really do with Spring and Summer all year round.  Could definitely do without Fall and Winter I'm indifferent about! Haha!  Work wise I love the hustle bustle of Fall, but we're talking pure weather here!  Spent the weekend enjoying the amazing sunshine and warm temps and gallivanting around town celebrating birthdays and Mother's Day.

We'll post some cherry blossom photos in the next post.

Street art: Maya Hayuk mural

I was flipping through photos as I am doing some Spring cleaning so thought to try to organize my files! I can't remember if I have shared these before.  These are pics from early in the year.  I love this Maya Hayuk mural!  It's on Lansdowne near Dundas and I will alter my travel route on occasion just to pass by.  The long Winter hasn't been too kind to the mural as it looks like it has been dulled by a layer of salt and grit, but I still so enjoy it!  I love playing with colour combinations in my work and I especially fancied the colour play of this section of the mural.

Now that it's Spring, it's time for more long walks to explore the city and enjoy the sunshine!

Reign Bracelet

These are one of my favourites of the season!  The Reign Bracelet comes in Lilac and Shadow and it's hard to choose which colour is my top pick.  These beads are solid glass with a matte mottled finish.  They almost seem to glow when the light hits them just right! 
Looking to make a bigger statement?  Here's the Wide version of the Reign Bracelet.  Comes in both colours as well!

Check 'em out at

Have a great weekend!  The forecast is looking sweet here in Toronto, so I'm looking forward to a good one.  Also, how is it May already!?  Time really does fly...
