I’m wanting this!

Loving the mix of coral, orange, pink and gold. So yummy.

Lots more if you head to Stella & Dot.

I absolutely fell in love with these crochet pieces from JungJung! The olives, especially!

How about a series of these on your kitchen wall above your banquet seat… each one pinned to a linen background, shadow-box framed with white, simple frames! They’re so delicate and lovely and intricate. Grouped together en masse. The colours, soft and organic. Sigh…

My mom will love this post… I can just tell. Crochet? And vegetables? Perfection.

Thank you to Florence & Millie for sharing this. I couldn’t help but reiterate. :)

I’m wanting these glass containers! Mix and match colour and transparencies and you get a lovely way to display your treasures. Those folks at Iittala are very clever!

Wanting: Wood Watch

Reinventing the wheel… in watches.

AB Aeterno has introduced a new line of arm candy made out of wood. Reed sandalwood to be exact. There’s a warmth to the timepiece that I like. Warm to the touch as well.

I think I want it. How about you?

La Mer Collections: Vintage Oversize Watch. Purchased via Dealuxe (one of my favourite online shops)!

My new watch. It’s oversized. It’s vintage-esque (my word, ha ha). And I think I’m loving it! Someone close to me (you know who you are… heh hem) thinks it’s too large. He says it looks like I’m using HIS watch. But as I explained, ‘Bigger is better! And that’s actually the point!’ ;)

So what do you think? Love it? Or leave it?

Technically, I’m keeping it either way because I’m pretty sure I’m still going to be loving it for some time. :)

A couple of years ago I attended The Artist Project here in Toronto, an independent artist sale and exhibit. That’s when I first saw France Goneau‘s pieces. And when I fell in love with mixed media.

I’ve always loved ceramic arts (my great grandfather – whom I never met – would sit at a pottery table, throwing/spinning clay pottery for his little town in Portugal… What an Ah-ha moment that was when I discovered my roots!). And, like any girl, I love jewelery. So it makes perfect sense for me to absolutely covet these pieces. It’s like ceramic jewels for my walls!

Anyway… I might be over simplifying but they truly are beautiful. Haunting. Delicate. Tactile. Striking. Intricate. Lovely.

What do they look like to you?

Wanting: Tom Binns

I can’t stop looking at this beautiful necklace by Tom Binns. Want. Want. Want.

Where Am I?
