Mackenzie House - Doors Open Toronto

During "Doors Open Toronto", I couldn't resist visiting this little (haunted) historic house of Toronto's 1st mayor, Sir William Lyon Mackenzie....

Hope you had a great weekend as well! :)

* NEW * In My ETSY Store -- Hibernating Black Bear

It's been a very long time since I've painted, and I must confess that I've been feeling quite slow and rusty at it.  I am, however, still very much in love with painting, and it often makes me feel like I'm closest to being my true self when I'm doing it (do you ever feel this way when doing something? :O).

I'm happy to say that I've put up a new wood toy on my ETSY here he is...the hibernating Black Bear:

I hope to pick up the paint brush again real soon!

Good News, Bad News

The good news is that I started painting again and hopefully will put something new in my Etsy shop soon

The bad news is:
1. I'm back on the sugar addiction train.
2. I can't call my Mom nor Grandma to wish them a "Happy Mother's Day" today, because I left my phone charger at work. :'(

Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely mothers out there!

Early Saturday Morning

It started with brunch with good friends at the Westerly....

Afterwards, we walked down the street to my favourite vintage shop - Mrs. Huizenga...

Upon leaving the store, little fellow was making a small ruckus next door... ;)

Hope Spring has arrived...wherever you may be.
