Project 365: Day 152

Amazing play of light and contrast in the clouds tonight. Alberta's skies are always changing and always interesting!

Purple and Orange Starfish

Amazing and bright colours on this starfish. Just goes to show, mother nature has a bit of a sense of humour when it comes to dishing out colour schemes!

Desks in Small Places

Great way to integrate a place for your office when you don't necessarily have a lot of space to do it in! I might have to try the first one in my place, as I have a big space between the couch and the kitchen area...

Project 365: Day 151

Meetings all day... when am I supposed to get any work done??

Have Camera, Will Travel

Thinking of where to go for our summer vacation... Halifax, NYC, Portland, Chicago or Seattle? Love to hear from anyone if they have any suggestions!

Shoulder Feather Tattoo

A simple feather in a somewhat hidden place, good idea to keep in mind!

Project 365: Day 150

Nothing quite beats a fresh loaf of french bread. Particularly on a night when you're running late and a roast chicken is the perfect thing to pick up on the way home!

Project 365: Day 149

All the potted plants are now making their way outside. These were particularly cheery on my walk home, such a vibrant pink and purple!

Basics & Red

Summer white with a pop of red. Thinking I need to go hunt for some colour for the summer!

Magic Woods

Wander in the woods and find the apples falling off the tree...

Tea or Coffee

Hoping today will be one of those days...

Yellow and Grey Bedroom

Really liking this take on yellow and grey for a bedroom, especially the stencilled walls! Great alternative to wallpaper.

Project 365: Day 148

Ate dinner outside for the first time this year at my friend's. It was a lovely evening to bbq with a beautiful sky as the sun was setting.

Coral Striped Summer Dress

A nice simple soft dress with a long pendant makes a cool summer outfit.

Colourful Stripes on White

I probably would not do this in my own home, but I do love the pop of colour and pattern on the stairs of this otherwise quite neutral home.

Project 365: Day 147

Sometimes she looks very silly, other days, she looks very serious.

Project 365: Day 146

The flowers are all finally coming out!

Musical Envelopes

Love the look for these, not sure how I would feel about chopping up any actual music sheets to do this though!

White Offices

Not usually a fan of white for decor in office spaces, but I must say, it's growing on me!

Light Filled Rooms

Beautiful light filled rooms with splashes of colour make me happy. It would be great to just sit here listening to music and reading on a nice day.

Desks of Artists and Designers

I love peeking at other people's spaces and drawing inspiration from where they work to design my own space one day. I love the setup above, I want a space full of light that I can work in every day!

Project 365: Day 145

Going over to a friend's tomorrow, so tonight I made mango sai mai lo. Unfortunately the mangos are still a bit green, but nothing a little sweet won't fix!

Writing Art

A simple and beautiful image. I love the idea of writing and drawing together. It is a beautiful pen as well,  I wonder what brand it is...?

Marshmallow Cat

I agree, thinking of sleep this chilly morning!

Project 365: Day 144

Been really hungry all the time these days, not really sure why! Found these the other day and they are quite addictive!

Beautiful Laundry Rooms

Stunning laundry room... I wonder how practical it is?

Wall-to-Wall Books

I dream of amazing rooms with books and a grand piano =)

Project 365: Day 143

Nothing like closing out a grey day with a warm cup of tea and some light reading.

Urban Frequencies, Jill Malek

A new set of wallpapers by Jill Malek draws inspiration from some everyday things that occur with city life. This one is voyageur, which I find really neat as it is based on route maps for airplanes. Art can be the everyday, just a matter of where you look for it.

Tree Silhouettes

I love the idea of having tree silhouettes on the living room wall. Perhaps one day I will go about painting them by hand to give them a little flair

Project 365: Day 142

Sometimes it's just a little walk to clear your head. I went for a walk to the Snye today and just sat and watched the water. Even with some of the noise, it was easy to just ignore the background and just sit there and think. It was a nice change of pace, and was most welcome today.

Vintage Baby Scale

I don't normally post a lot of baby stuff, but this picture is just too cute! I love the vintage scale with the tiny baby on top, just too precious!

Mint Pants

Strangely enough, I'm becoming more attracted to mint coloured jeans. Not sure if I would buy a pair, but I do like the look of them for a fresh pop of colour without standing out too much.

Project 365: Day 141

Today was perfect weather for a bbq. Unfortunately I didn't take much pictures of all of the bbq food, so here's the remnant of the banana bread that I will have to finish over the next few days.

The Rules of a Creator's Life

I need to print this out and post one at work and one at home. Sometimes it helps to have a daily reminder when there are so many things on the go.


Navy and Red Stripes

Love the bold jacket, the structured bag and the little pop of polka dots at the edge of the sleeve. Very fun!

Project 365: Day 140

Spring cleaning today, perhaps a few weeks late. I moved the big jewelry box to by the window and the cat has found a new favourite perch. Loving the contrast of the cat against the red box, and of course the cat's expression!

Life Balance

Love these do-it-yourself kind of plates, sometimes its just what you need to see after a long day.

via pinterest

Frye Boots

Have seen and heard all the hype about Frye boots and how they last a long time and wear great, but I'm still not convinced to go and buy them yet! Love how this one is dressed down and still looks great, and I imagine just as good dressed up with a shift dress and colourful tights!

Project 365: Day 139

Today was a bit of a mishmash day, starting with a pre-screening at the clinic to see if I was a candidate for laser eye surgery. Then the gym, a farewell for a friend, and then home again to relax and enjoy the start of the weekend.

Nautical Polka Dots

I love this nautical look, especially with the use of giant polka dots instead of stripes. Love the breezy, summer feel of this one!

Love You a Latte

What I should say to my husband on mornings when he brings me a latte =)

Project 365: Day 138

Picked up my guitar today to play for an hour. It was great to make music again, but I couldn't help but notice the layer of dust that has built up over the last few months!

Hair Pin Style

I love the idea of being able to do this, perhaps with a bit of hairspray I can get it to stick like this...

Black, White and Grey Office

Another one of the same colour palette. Just a nice, simple and clean office - ready to work!

Black, White and Grey Living Room

Really love that grey couch, and the stark contrast between the black and the white. Just my kind of living room!

Project 365: Day 137

Tried out the newest Japanese restaurant in town, and started with the beef yaki udon. Had the 50mm mounted and had such a hard time getting in a good clear shot in the very limited space I had. Perhaps it's time to switch back to the 35mm?

Twenty Years...

To just keep calm and carry on, enjoy life and don't look back too critically.

Office with Grey White Wood Floors

I love the pale flooring that is in this office. It reminds me more of a studio space, where I could have space to do more computer related things, and then to just turn around and have space to create with my hands.
