Baubles, Beads, and Bangles and a Sneak Peek

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend.

I was totally chuffed when Flare Canada contacted me … Continue reading

Artist Profile: Fashion Illustrator Inslee Haynes

Talk about talent!

The pie turned out super and we can’t stop making it.   … Continue reading

I’ve already gone to Tofino for a second trip this year since I last took these pics over Easter. Stayed at a cosy cottage called the Surf Shack.  It’s our second stay … Continue reading

In my perfect world, I would live in my all off-white clapboard cottage by the warm sea.  I would wear white dresses everyday, or as much as the weather permitted (even warm places have moody days). Nothing says summer more than a simple white dress.  Cropped, swingy, maxi, clingy, off-the-shoulder, capped sleeves, lace, crochet, cotton … Continue reading

This post on my previous weekender … Continue reading
