summer wish list.

Just a few things I always have in the back of my mind while I'm shopping...just in case I stumble across the perfect one. Or find a great pattern to make it myself...

beautiful day.

Here are some pictures I took of the flowers around our property today - so amazing! They're so colourful and vibrant. Lovely flowers for a beautiful day on a great long weekend...doesn't get much better than that. Happy Victoria Day!

more lovely tables.

Wouldn't you just love to sit down to eat at a beautifully set table all the time? There's something about centrepieces and table settings that make me so happy. Like these from Chic-deco.

can't get enough thrifty.

I absolutely LOVE these ideas on All Things Thrifty! Definitely click the links for the tutorials.

I'm dreaming of...

Beautiful outdoor spaces. Especially ones with outdoor fireplaces, like these photos. There are lots of place in the city where you can't have a fire pit in the backyard, but what about an enclosed fireplace? Not the same bonfire effect, but still warm and cozy. I once saw an article about a family who's fireplace was double sided - it was in the living room on the inside of their house, and on the enclosed patio on the outside. Amazing.

Full House.

for sale.

Check out this grey mix hoodie I made! That's right, it's a Heidi Headon original :) I made it from a pattern I found at Fabricland a while ago. I like it! I also made myself a pair of sweat pants from the same material. It's cozy, it's warm, and it's only $20! First to speak for it, gets priority. Facebook me or leave a comment here. (Can fit size 6, 8, or 10).

mmm poptarts.

Here they are! They turned out really well - the recipe was easy to follow, and very accurate. Next time I'll roll the pastry out even thinner, so I can get more out of it. I filled 3 with Nutella and the rest with raspberry jam. Worth a try!

no way.

I think I might have to try this today. Let you know how it goes.

HOMEMADE POP TARTS. (See recipe here: Smitten Kitchen)

lauren moffatt.

I love Lauren Moffatt's designs! Her style is really laid back and relaxed but interesting and unique at the same time. (ps I'm choosing a project tonight for the sewing course I'm taking, so I'm looking for all the inspiration I can find! I'll keep you up to date on my progress in future posts.)

the cheapest cruise.

I just stumbled on this article - The most beautiful ferry rides in the US. I absolutely love being on the water, and I think this is the perfect activity to add to a vacation. I happen to know that taking the Staten Island Ferry is free both ways - so why not?


Boston, MA.

Seattle, WA.

speaking of spring colours...

Here's a collection of photos with some fabulous colour inspiration, especially for spring. You may notice that black is absent in most of what I post. It's not my neutral of choice - I much prefer greys or whites. Add a cool colour on top and I'm happy. More than one cool colour is even better (like the balloons).
