Why Not?

Why not find a perfect location for a fire.

And get cozy with your honey.

Pretty and Simple Watercolour

A little bitter maybe but this made me laugh.

I'm not a fan of lemon meringue but this was just too pretty to ignore.

This looks so peaceful.

In love with this outfit! Love the sweater!

This week has been about clearing out the bad and bringing in the new. I have spent a lot of time going through all of my belongings and making decisions about what to keep and what to throw out. Sometimes its hard to let go of things, especially when you have had them for most of your life but in the end its better to let go. So after a tough week of clearing out I looked for images that I find refreshing and uplifting. Have a great week everyone! xo

Just before Christmas, my cousin shot a promotional video for Hawk & Sparrow. It was quite an experience. I realized I am not comfortable being on camera haha but it was still a lot of fun to shoot and see how my cousin works. Check the video out here. Have a good weekend!

Cute Vintage Tea Cups!

Vintage suitcase turned chair - so creative!

Pretty bottles to put matches in

Love this mobile - so simple and so pretty

Great photo! There is something eerie and romantic about this photo.

So. My computer is finally fixed, sort of. I got really stressed when it broke but then realized the two weeks I had without it was actually really beneficial. It gave me a lot of time to reflect about the store and life in general. I feel like I am getting more focused and clear about where I want to go. Its funny how one little thing can cause so much upheaval. The other day my boyfriend sent me a quote: "All one needs is love and work." This is so true for me and it actually makes me put things into perspective. That said, I am really glad to have my computer up and running again. I missed my inspiration boards. Hope these past two weeks have been good to you! xo

This Christmas, while visiting my parents at their place in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, I checked out a really cool antique shop called The Pomegranate. It was jammed pack with every possible piece of antique furniture imaginable. I had to bend my head at times. I am always on the search for good tie clips and cuff links and so I asked the owner and she pulled out boxes and boxes of them. Needless to say I left with a pretty bad neck pain after crouching in a corner to look through all of them. It was totally worth it. I found some beautiful pieces, especially those stork cuff links shown above. They are all available on Etsy now. Hope you enjoy! Have a good weekend everyone! xo

With all the festivities over and a new year on the horizon, I have been thinking of ways to better spend my free time. I don't have much free time but when I do I often spend it catching up on tv or movies when I would much rather be creating or crafting hence some of my inspiration images. What do you do with your free time? Hope you all have a good first week back at work or school. Don't work too hard and remember to treat yourself once in a while! xoxo
