Some fresh new owls at sunset.
Have a lovely week!

I promised I'd post when I found out about any Suzanne Carlson stockists so here goes! It turns out there is one online stockist, Good Egg Shop, which sells just a few bits and pieces from her range and there are a few galleries that carry her work, in her home town Toronto and then in Ottawa and Montrealand. For anything else you can email her direct- you can find her email on her site.
The Good Egg Shop sells a whole lot of other great handmade goodies, including things from Anatomy of A Skirt who curated the Etsy Finds today. Here are a few of my picks from the site.
I found this clever passive aggressive anger release machine on the Design You Trust blog , it's made by YarisalKublitz. There are days when I would pay to smash some plates in an attempt to release my frustration- perhaps not ones quite as pretty as these though! You can find all their weird and wonderful inventions on their site. I especially like the sliding and collapsing chairs- the hangman light is amusing too.
I also found another great photographer, (and Gin did too- check out her blog ) on Design You Trust too, Ricardo Salamanca-Salamagica. You can view his advertising portfolio online, there are so many brilliant images I suggest you take a look.
A few of my favourite things this weekend.
I would really love an excuse to use these wonderful personalised wooden icecream spoons from Paper+Cup- one day I'll find one.
And I spent a while browsing Design Sponge today- I really love their latest post which features Nea's wallwear embroidery, she also does really beautiful necklaces and other bits and pieces. And another post they did on the illustrator Jen Corace, her stuff makes me smile and I like how she takes time for so much detail.
And lastly, I went to a house party last night and a really good friend from high school happened to be there too- was great to have such a chance meeting and made the weekend that much better. Was delightful to have such a good catch up.
I hope everyones having a great weekend too.
This is Castro- I mentioned him in the bit about me in the makers section of World Sweet World. I thought I'd put up some proof that he really does attack owls and would you believe I've been finding them out in the garden covered in dirt! Good one Castro. Your still cute though. :)
The weekend has been a good one. I relaxed, made owls, visited a craft fair on in my area (and managed to get the boyfriend along too- no mean feat) and my copy of World Sweet World arrived in the mail.
Our wee owls and Papercup's Kafta dress are both featured and I did a 'how to' page, on how to make cute hot water bottle jumpers from old sweaters for winter. Was very exciting to see it amongst the other great articles in the magazine- which is another great issue. There is an article on growing your own veggies too, which is brilliant timing for me as I've just set aside a section in my garden to do just that. Swonderful is one of World Sweet Worlds many stockists if you're interested in picking up a copy- but if you're not near Brooklyn, Wellington- all the other stockists are listed on the site.
I'll be popping the new owls up on Etsy tonight, please feel free to have a wee look. Thank you!
xx Have a great start to the week.
