I don’t know how I let this one slip by without sharing months ago, but here it is now. The moment I clicked on her home tour and saw her space I was gleaming with envy, happiness and a calm. Her home is so simple, so elegant, so perfect. It embodies all of my ‘boring-self’ molecules and makes them scream with excitement. The muted colours, the dark green of the sofa, chairs and the mid-century yet modern feel it boasts is absolute heaven. It reminds me of the changes I recently made to my own apartment, in terms of super minimizing and only having pieces featured that I truly love and will be loved for years to come. (source)
The re-useable tote bag has become a staple all around the world. An eco-product of our century, replacing the generic plastic bag used in grocery shops, clothing stores and everywhere else. The tote bag, usually made of cotton or canvas is an ultra durable and natural material that we should all be proud to use in place of plastic. I know I use one on a daily basis, winter through summer, for my everyday essentials such as books, my wallet and small grocery runs. I have built an etsy shop surrounding this wonderful creation.
The medium of art I find myself going back to time and time again is painting, in this case painting tote-bags was my choice for my feature product. I truly believe in this item as it is changing the world in terms of the environment and that is what makes it special. That is what makes it real to myself and hopefully so many others. It’s not just a bag, it’s an eco-product that has changed everything. Painting on this 100% cotton canvas is something I thoroughly enjoy, and I love seeing others ‘toting’ them around, especially ones I have created, it’s a fantastic feeling! Lets all do our small part to save our earth, one tote at a time.
The past week has been a little bit rough, I came down with the flu and was cooped up inside for a few too many days. The sun is out here in big sky country and its bringing out the optimist in us all. Here’s to hoping for an early spring, and some photos to recap the previous week around here. There’s nothing I love more than a morning full of tea and coffees followed by greenhouse adventures with my man, some beautiful new jewelry to brighten the day and my addiction to shelving around our apartment is becoming prominent. When you live in the city it usually means a smaller apartment is your sanctuary, but with our high ceilings I have been utilizing the vertical space and I can’t get enough. Regular trips to Home Depot have become one of my favourite outings.
