Soot Sprite & Lei


I bought the cute little Soot Sprite YEARS ago and the Lei are from our wedding shower 
{Yes, I did go with the ever so cliche tropical themed shower. However, it wasn't ridiculously tacky if that counts!} I have these hanging off my lamp in my studio area.

Owl Necklaces

Studio Peeks...

Today I wasn't feeling so well, so I decided not to work on any crafts that I had planned on doing. 
{Just incase I messed up!}

So instead, I played around in Photoshop with a photograph from my New York City trip to create a tilt-shift effect. 

Here are the before and after images

{Both images are personal photographs}



I looked out and saw this rainbow :)

Bowl Detail


Detailing of a bowl I got from my Parents. I just adore it!!!
 I can't wait until I get my dining room decorated like a cute little coffee shop! It will be the perfect fit!

10 Things I Love...

I had a smore for the first time ever last weekend-yum!
And now that I am away from a campfire, I shall make them in my microwave...haha!

Board Game Nights
And staying up until all hours of the night to play them.
I just started playing Settlers of Catan and really like that game too. 
{Risk is my all time favourite-but my heart is still for the old school version with the wooden blocks-which I hope to get my hands on a copy of}

We hardly ever see stars in the city at night. But going back home for the weekend is the perfect fix of the beautiful night sky. {It gets completely dark and quiet, it is so peaceful}

Particularly this one with the little floating house. So cute!!!

Rookie Blue
I love this show!!! And it is pretty awesome that I know a Rookie!
You are going to go far!

Hot Air Balloons
Instant smile when I see one! Sometimes if I am lucky, I will see one in the morning on my way to work. 
I really want to go on a ride one day!

Northern Lights
This was the first time I have ever seen Northern Lights in the City

Vegetarian Sushi {And Starbucks Frappuccinos}
It is my all time favourite photo-editing dinner

Bubble Tea
So delicious! Mango Peach Tea with tapioca or Raspberry Milky Tea with tapioca are my favorites
{But then again, I really haven't tried any others either...}

The Swell Season
Beautiful music!!!

Photographs I Adore

We have briefly talked about it, but I think our next vacation is going to be a Road Trip down into the United States hitting places like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.  
Even just the thought of going soon, got me all excited about the lovely places along the way. 
It will be epic!

I love Road Trip photos {Especially ones from the desert} There is just something about them. Maybe it is the fact that we don't have a whole lot of desert up in Northern & Central Alberta?

 All photographs sourced from weheartit



I LOVE these shoes!!! Not only are they super comfy, they are my first real Converse All-Stars. 
They are getting pretty worn out, but I don't ever want to toss them. {I shot my first wedding & travelled to New York City with these} These shoes are taking me places!!! {It's okay, I know I am a dork!}

Artist Feature-Dalton Ghetti

Dalton's artwork is AMAZING!!! 

He carves figures out of the graphite in pencils. Yes, that is right...PENCILS! With a razor blade, sewing needle and a sculpting knife.

Dalton's tiny, intricate and fragile work takes a few months to the longest of two and a half years. {Working only about an hour and a half a day} He also refuses to use a magnifying glass and has never sold any of his work {just given it away to his friends}



Style Crush-Military Inspired Fashion

I have always been a fan of military inspired fashion. Looks like it is making a comeback! 
Here are some of my picks. 
{Although I probably wouldn't wear half of them, I like the classic jackets, pants, & bags} 

Home Inspiration-Pillows

I love pillows! {You wouldn't really know that about me because I don't really have any. But I hope to change that and make a bunch}

Here are a few that inspire me!

Doilies on pillows

Cute Foxes by Elsie


More Ruffles!

Embroidery detailing

Inspirational Sunday

There is no telling how many miles you will have to run while chasing a dream. ~Author Unknown



I have too many Peacock Feathers to count...They are for a project I want to work on someday. And in the meantime, stand in as photo props.

365 Days of Photos Catch-Up

Just catching up on my blog from my absence this weekend. 

We went out to the country to our friends house for some good old quality 
hanging out time with almost everyone. 
{We hadn't seen each other since our trip, or longer with some other friends-so it was about time!} 
We had campfires, played beanbags & boardgames and had a great time! {I even got to see my parents for a bit on our way out!!!}


This was the sun first thing in the morning. 
The smoke was still really thick that you could look directly at the sun.

We spent a weekend at Brad & Leigha's out in the country. 
It was a lovely little getaway!

On our way home from Brad & Leigha's we stopped in at my Mom & Dads. 
My parents have such a lovely garden!!!

{Personal Photograph}


Mmm!!! Blueberries! 
I went home just in time! Mom & Dad came back from blueberry picking, so I got to bring some home. 
Thank you! They are delicious!!!

Our bamboo plants have sure grown like crazy lately!
