:: Linzie Hunter’s Hand Lettered Resolutions

all images are by Linzie Hunter   I know some people are not fans of New Year’s resolutions. That’s okay. But I’m not like them. I am a huge fan of resolutions. It’s the one ritual of welcoming the new year that I love. The pressure to get tanked and clink glasses and pash when the clock strikes twelve does

:: Even MORE Reasons To Love Taylor Swift

main image stolen from Taylor Swift Man. She’s such a great example of adorable, dorky gratitude. YES she has a gazillion dollars, but she doesn’t have to do this stuff. It’s so nice to see people doing good stuff for other people (while they are also working REALLY HARD!) If I’m ever feeling a bit down I go look at

:: Hello Lady Faves

  Good morning! How are you? I am okay. I slept on the couch last night which was not good. Things were so noisy outside my bedroom window (in the laneway). I could not even stand it. So I went downstairs and put Gilmore Girls on and pulled a blanket over me. I think I fell asleep at around 1am.

:: The Frankie + Friends Garage Sale

  I’ve had some awesome finds at garage sales, but my super-best-find-ever was when someone sold us a box of second-hand dolls for $40 or so when we still had our shop in Richmond. I didn’t really look at them carefully, because they looked like an awesome job lot of shiny-haired plastic ladies, but later we discovered an original Blythe doll hiding

:: Ali MacGraw Crafts

Hello! I’ve been watching Love Story and looking at pictures of Ali MacGraw. What a legend. I love these shots of her pretending to craft/crafting.  I was just watching the end when Cam came in from being out. He arrived playing a bongo.

  Some people are just so awesome. Sigh. You know that thing when someone likes your Instagram photo, so you go and look at theirs? Yes? Well, today I was sitting here, in my fave ugly silver Birks and the dress I have been wearing every day this week (because… love!) and I followed that like-trail back to ChiliPhilly. I

:: Rinday & This Is 50

image by Kristin Perers Today I went into the city and had lunch with Rin. We went to Grand BBQ again.  Before I met her I bought Ari a copy of The Roots ‘How I Got Over’ and nipped into Magnation and bought the latest Anthology Magazine. I really like that magazine. I am so happy, actually, that there are so
