Hi there. I'll be taking a break over the next few weeks in order to navigate through some 'life' stuff. I'll be back soon ! xxoo t. Continue reading

I have long thought that humans should take after animals in the fall and winter; nest away and hibernate until warmer weather comes back. I realize this might not be the most socially-sound lifestyle, but every time the seasons change Continue reading

happy friday! The semi-consistant tradition of 'snapshot' is where i peruse my photos from the week's past and pick one photo to focus on. I took this picture of a magnet i bought myself the other day. I bought it because A: i need constant reminders that things will fall... Continue reading

I love the antiqued brass look. When i received the glasses (right) in the mail I noticed they had dots where you could potentially put gems, but instead, I decided to paint each dot to add a fun range of colours to the brass. Well, as it usually happens, once... Continue reading

I thought last week was bad when i was in it. This week I see it as necessary 'ick-ness' to get to a new point when i can see things differently, and thus, do things differently. It's so easy to feel overwhelmed and like things are never going to change - it's hard seeing the forrest... Continue reading

We have our First-Ever Zombie Walk happening in our lil' downtown where my shop is... i didn't feel like doing make-up, so i opted for a Zombie-Shopkeeper-Look. Having long hair for a change is great... plus, i've always wanted glasses. Oh - and Mac's Photobooth is still a delightfully new... Continue reading

Susanne, Ry and I have decided to remain as the "Very Long Engagement" for now; getting married is not a big priority for us at the moment.

So remember when i mentioned that web i feel like i'm in (in this post). Well, i'm still there. It seems i just keep asking questions... right now i have no answers, just more questions. So, I thought I would ask you what you... Continue reading

Other than jeans and a baggy tee, dresses are one of my favourite outfits because they're easy! Throw on, add accessories and go! I wanted to get a "new" vintage dress this season as ... Continue reading

October is my favourite month and this year it seemed to creep up on us. Ry and i were just talking about this yesterday - how months seem to be flying by. That's why is was... Continue reading

Hello there!! I happen to think we all are a little nosey... i know i am, and i love seeing what's in people's bags. I have particularly enjoyed seeing what's in other people's make-up bags. I wanted to do a make-up edition of my own... Continue reading

Hey there folks!!! I hope you are well. Things over here are pretty good and busy as usual. I'm finally adjusting to fall and transitioned our house the other day - it was a good exercise in accepting colder weather. I'm still really not knowing what my style is these days and am working on it (remember this post). On that note, i thought i would share a very special room in our pad: the dressing room/bar.

Hey there Le Fresne, I'm so happy you stopped by and hope you will continue to hang out with me :) I'm glad you felt/feel connected to the title - I actually picked it by randomly pointing to pages in the dictionary years ago... but I feel like it's exactly what so many of us are trying to do: become true, true becoming :) Happy reading Beauvoir to you and take care, luv t.

It is a dreamcatcher Adriana :)! I custom made this for a customer and it was my first one so i took lots of pics:) Thanks so much for sharing Hannah. To have or not to have children becomes such a big question at this age and i think it's great that you are taking time to consider carefully - it is a big and important job. Take care

In the vintage biz it's easy to focus on all the female vintage icons, but I'm inspired by these photos of Robert Redford that I found in that Teen Style Magazine from 1971 I mentioned in this post on Fall Fashion. Since I'm preparing to release the men's section at... Continue reading

do you like structure? I don't. I'm one of those people that really, really tries to adhere to a daily schedule and then ends up curling up in bed to read a new book and eat a cookie for breakfast (this morning). I'm not exactly the best candidate for having a shop for this reason. I tend to be very whimsical and become bored by the daily grind of structure. But i'm trying.... Continue reading
