William and Catherine - Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

They really are so lovely together.  Genuine, loving, simple and classic. Their wedding was beautiful and I hope for nothing but lots of love to come.

Portel - iPhone Leather Wallet Sleeve

Although this may be more of a men's style, I love the simplicity of putting my necessities together easily and not having to carry around as many things. Honestly, if I can leave the purse at home, I'm quite happy to do it.

Pop-Up Lunch Bag

An interesting idea to create temporary places for lunchtime, bringing more activity on the urban streets. This is a lunch bag that doubles as a seat by hooking onto inanimate objects.

Paris (Stretched Canvas Print)

Reminds me of the vast number of canvases that I have in my closet that say paint me!  I had planned a long time ago to do a set similar to this of my favourite cities so I can hang them on my wall at home.

Sketch Lamp

What a great little idea - a desk lamp that doubles as a light box - nice, simple and minimalistic.

Kindle 3

My birthday gift from the dude this year, possibly the most dangerous thing to enter my little hands, as I can devour books like nobody's business!  I'm amazed at how easy it is to read, having gone through 2 books since getting it last week. Although I love the feel of a real book in my hands, this is something that has been adding to the experience of reading and I have been impressed so far. Of course, this will never be able to replace the books and magazines where I look for inspiring images, but this lets my imagination run free through the power of words.

Not so impressed by pricing for all books, but there are a lot of free books out there for me to read for the time being and sales on all the time.  Also I found out that later this year, they will be starting to do library book lending as well, partnering with Overdrive! Hopefully that will come to Canada soon, as my library here does lend out ebooks!

Computer Cat

Hana decided she would 'help' me this morning as I was researching adaptive policy making.

Challah (Egg) Bread

Delicious Challah that I made that has a wonderful texture and hint of sweetness in the bread. It's actually quite similar tasting to the breads from Chinese bakeries. I think that means I have to try to duplicate those next!

In need of new summer kicks... My poor Superstars are tattered and cracked from the harsh winter, guess -40 isn't that friendly to leather shoes...

Soft Maps

The planner in me wants one of these for my home. If I had children, this would be an awesome playmat for them!

Suspended Staircase

Interesting concept for a staircase, it feels light and heavy at the same time.
