a sale (of sorts)

in honor of our country's birthday tomorrow, i will be covering the shipping on all orders tomorrow, july 1st.
no matter what you buy, no matter where you live- shipping is free! just pay as you would normally, and i will refund you the shipping charges completely. whoohoo!
for one day only!

update: i've just removed the shipping charges to make it easier. no need to refund.

a good end

today was a good end to a very crappy week. it involved a drive to the north shore, picking up some new fabric, getting a new plate, and having an early, delicious barbeque dinner on our communal roof deck. a perfect beginning to a much better week (i hope).
happy sunday!

when i looked out the window the other day, i saw a bundle of balloons floating by. i ran to grab my camera, they were moving so quickly. they look so tiny in these pictures.

we're back!

our ontario trip was so much fun! very, very busy but so much fun. it was so great to catch up with family and friends. we also spent a few days in toronto and were joined by my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. good times!!! lots of walking, lots of mac and cheese at the drake and some drinks were thrown in there too.
we saw an amazing surrealist exhibit at the AGO. it included painting, sculpture, jewelry and more, plus there was some incredible fabric by dali and miro.
i loved walking around queen street west and popping into so many great shops and small galleries. standouts for me were robber, magic pony (who had the coolest window display, see above) and the drake general store where i purchased the best ceramic garden gnome. thankfully he made it home in one piece.
now to catch up on my blog reading......

see you later!

i'm headed back to ontario tomorrow for a summer holiday to visit with family. it is always a crazy rush to get everything done before we go. the final (and easy tasks) are now done.
the dog is at the kennel-check
the laundry has been done-check
many emails were sent-check and now just to pack the bags.

before i go, i wanted to mention that some of my animals are now in sunny LA to take part in the swoon exhibition at the black maria gallery from june 13th to july 11th. i'm so excited!

i have used a few new fabrics for them and all of the animals i have sent are stuffed with 100% locally sourced wool. it makes them feel so great!

see you when i get back!
