Cleaning the condo today and we found a number of the cat's toys. Here's one that we picked up at a tradeshow, when you bounce it on something hard, it lights up! A bit of an accidental picture, but I found it turned out pretty neat.
The photos by the young Alex Stoddard are just simply stunning. I stumbled upon these today and just could not help but stare at this thoughtful and surreal work that he produces. Simply amazing!
The one above is just made me pause - like the soul is trying to escape and leave to a place where something is calling. I simply love this image, and it makes me think of where my life is now and where I want to go.

What a fantastically decorated flat in London, I love how it is well proportioned for the space and i just enough for all daily living. Lovely architectural details and these amazing windows make this an absolute gem.

Had a great time at the opening concerts for Canada Rocks this weekend. Got to hear Joel Plaskett and Hey Rosetta!
Unfortunately I had left my main cameras at home since it was rainy when I left the house, so all you get this is crappy cell phone picture (adding one more reason that I want an iPhone!).

What a perfect and magical backyard for entertaining guests, I absolutely love the lights that hang off the tree! I can only hope that one day I might be able to have a small backyard in which I can do this during the summer.

- Keep good company
- Notice the ordinary
- Preserve the ephemeral
- Design not for the elite but for the masses
- Explain it to a child
- Get lost in the content
- Get to the heart of the matter
- Never tolerate “O.K. anything.”
- Remember your responsibility as a storyteller
- Zoom out
- Prototype it
- Make design your life… and life, your design.
- Leave something behind.

Even though it is officially the first day of summer, I still had to wear a scarf to work over my outfit! Scarves are an essential component to my wardrobe as I get cold easily in the office. This one is a simple, but very beautiful kelly green.

This is amazing paper art by Brittney Lee, who works for Walt Disney Animation Studios. I love how she perfectly captured the essence of the movie and the spirit of Ariel through this piece of art.

Eating at Earl's today after watching Prometheus in the theatre. Somehow there was a bit of a mix-up with how my order came out, and I ended up with 4 different plates where there really should have been one! Luckily there was room for it at the table, but there was so much food, the pan bread was a giant brick!
I've actually seen many bookstores where there is a resident cat! Does seem rather peaceful and quiet, and they really just nest just about everywhere. I love the feel of the photo - flipping through some sheet music on a quiet sunny day with a cat just snoozing above.

Bridal shower at the office, with her colours of yellow and grey. I loved these little tissue ball poufs and while they are pre made from the dollar store, they would be so easy to make! I'm going to keep them in mind for decorations in the future!
This is really incredible to read through, just for the simple graphics that capture so many different elements of his life or of other information that he has in his possession. It makes you wonder what kind of stories you can tell if you only pay a little more attention to the daily workings of your life and put it down on paper! Worth a shot to try and do this one year, I wonder how it will turn out...?
