Last Saturday we made our biannual pilgrimage to the Christie Antique Show. Have you guys been before? It’s the largest antique show in Canada!
Granted with this kind of clout, it’s definitely more of an antique market rather than a flea market. Prices run higher than other shows I’ve been to, with the usual [...]

Over the weekend we went up to a friend’s cottage to celebrate his birthday.
We didn’t do a heck of a lot for three days except sit by the fire, hang out and eat and drink ourselves silly. Oh and we played board games and charades as well of course.
It’s so nice to take [...]

The Lomography Gallery Store just opened up on Queen West Toronto. Here are some quick snaps of their store opening last night.
Wall covered top to bottom with lomo photos. Awesome!
Rubber necking peeps trying to catch a glimpse of the band.
The concept store was packed wall to wall with lomo lovin’ peeps! After [...]

A couple of nifty finds over the weekend…
I LOVE gnomes and I’m pretty sure I squealed when I came across these guys! It’s totally the wrong season right now and I can’t wait to put them in my garden this spring.
In the meantime they are diligently guarding my hallway. Good lads!
Pink. Poodle. Tea. [...]

To continue on our journey…
We left London after uneventful visits to Camden Market, Carnaby Street and Covent Garden *yawn* and made an overnight pit stop at my old Alma Matar located in Ashford Kent. It’s been 22 years since I’ve been back and even still, I remembered where everything was.
The field [...]

That being said, I’m so happy to [...]

It was Toronto Pride last Sunday and in the past I’ve always gone to celebrate and watch the Pride Parade with my gay husbands. This year however, I opted to accompany The Boy to the Queen’s Plate. I mean c’mon people, it does it get any gayer than meeting the Queen?!
Of course I’m [...]

It was my birthday yesterday! To celebrate, The Boy took me to a gun range.
What the !@&# you say? To a gun range? That is indie stationery designer unbecoming!
To be clear, I’m not some kind of gun lovin’ nut that lives in a backwoods trailer. No Deliverance here! I’m just the kinda person [...]

How was your weekend? Hope y’all managed to get outside a little bit to enjoy the sunshine. If you’re in Calgary though, I hear you guys got some snow. I would say I’m surprised but having lived there for about 8 years I know that snow in June even isn’t something out of [...]
