Sister Sea Otters

Here are a pair of sea otters that I made as a special Christmas gift request from my friend David.

As you can see, they fancy having fish, shrimp and clams for dinner. :)

Happy Monday!

Hope you're having a lovely month so far.

Analog Photos Published!

When Karolina, the editor in chief of the Czech based Mastal magazine, approached me to be a part of the November issue themed "Journey and Goal" I jumped at the chance.....

My 35mm and Polaroids are predominately featured from pages 54-67 (with one on page 5 and 183 as well)..... and it makes me quite nostalgic when I re-visit this collection of photos ranging from Hong Kong, Berlin, Porto, Poland, Los Angeles and London...

Please have a peek if you're curious! :)

Happy weekend! xoxo

Magical Fruit

Recently, Eva surprised me with these lovely fruits called "feijoa" or "pineapple guava".
I know my photos don't do them justice...however, I must confess, they taste just like candy.....

Have a wonderful weekend!

And, oh! If any one knows where I can get more of these fruits in Toronto, please let me know!

A Very Special Guest

This week, I had the wonderful pleasure to host my friend Eva, who is visiting from France.
She is my very first European visitor and I loved every minute we spent together - from going to the "Cat Power" concert, to strolling the streets and seeing Toronto through her eyes, to cooking together and chatting, chatting, chatting till late every evening.

Fig and I miss her lots and she's not even back in France yet! :O
Have a safe journey home tomorrow, Eva!

Voodoo Child Café

It's been such a long time since I've seen Celine and Melinda, and it was lovely catching up with the girls over coffee, delicious home made pastries, not to mention meeting baby Eloise for the first time....

How kissable is baby Eloise, I say!?!! :O

October is for...

...enjoying fresh tomatoes from the farm....

...celebrating (thank you SJ, J and J! xoxo)....

...indulging in home-made moon cake (thank you W! xoxo)....

...working on a new toy,

while someone quietly watches....

Hope you're having a lovely October so far. :)

Pack Rat Syndrome ~ Mugs

There are certain things I just can't resist collecting...
For those of you who know me, you know that I have a weakness for tea towels and mugs.

With that said, here are a few *old* and *new* mugs from my collection...

And yes, I find beverages taste better when enjoyed in a nice mug. ;P

Hope you're having a lovely week so far!
