For glitter, christmas trees, the music and movies that follow of course, burning candles with a cinnamon scent and the perfect garlands to hang around the house. Even with the terribly cold temperatures outside, the ever so apparent frost on my windows it is still one of my favourite times of the year. I hope everyone else is enjoying it as well.
I recently visited a most whimsical vintage shop here in YYC, called Pretty Little Things, definitely one of the most special shops I’ve ever stepped foot into. Everywhere you look there are drawers filled with vintage gems, cream coloured everything, ceilings high enough to get lost in and the most beautiful lace dresses hanging on its perimeter. There is a second floor filled with blankets, clothing and an array of beautiful vintage slips, it is a little bit of a dream space I must say! If you are in Calgary or planning on visiting make sure you put this spot on your list of places to visit in historic Inglewood, you wont want to miss it.
I recently picked up these two thick silver band rings from this lovely boutique here in Calgary. I can’t stop wearing them with my point ring from Giant Lion and twist stack ring by Don Biu. I’ve always been a sucker for too many rings and I just ordered a new one from Don Biu and I can’t wait until it’s on my pretty little finger!
Its been one year this week that this blog was born, for a creative outlet, to write, to show what visually stimulates and inspires me. It has most definitely been an exciting journey, from the first post to watching it and myself evolve and grow, to watch my readership grow has been so rewarding. I am excited to see what happens next and to share future collaborative projects here.
With the blogs one year and the launch of our new shop all in the same week Id like to extend the celebration and offer a sale through our Etsy shop with 15% off any purchase! The offer will extend from now until Monday, perfect for a piece you may be coveting or a gift for that special someone.

I love this apartment, mind you if it was mine it wouldn’t be filled with instruments but more beautiful home-decor and objects. For such a small space he has shown it off impressively with his mid-century furniture, clean lines and works of art to accent.You know I’m a sucker for a masculine space.

When I started this blog I knew I wanted to create a shop to go along with it, a place where people could buy quality handmade products and for a reasonable price. Over the past few months I’ve been working away on my branding, and creating new and exciting products that boast a minimal lifestyle and aesthetic.
The Etsy shop is already up and running and will remain, I have been working on a new online shop, building the website has been really great, designing products, sourcing out materials from Turkey, Greece, America and Canada to bring you small curated collections. I’m finally reaching completion and in a mere couple of weeks will be launching the new shop! With plans for continual growth you can look forward to new and exciting products being added to the shop in early 2014.
I believe in using quality materials so I’ve chosen to combine natural elements such as wood, solid brass, canvas and cotton, eco-friendly paints, and clay for ceramic beads, you can look forward to a variety of products in the new shop, all hand selected or made by me. I hope I’ve gotten you as excited as I am to launch this shop and follow along on this journey!
