Things I Love Thursday!

Pretty Little Thieves illustrations. I love the quirky drawings!

Poloroids. I really wish I had a Poloroid camera of my own. The effect the camera has on an image is beautiful. [photo by Smile and Wave]

I love typewriters. I don't have a typewriter, but I love them. I've noticed a lot of them in illustrations and photography lately...

These bookplates are adorable by boygirlparty. There are a few other bookplates with other illustrations on them available on her website and at her etsy store.
These vinyl wall decals are so cute! I want to get some for our flat!! They're by sixunderatree.

I found this etsy shop last year and fell in love with it! It's called getfeltup! So clever. I love this necklace. There are others with different colours in the shop. So cute!

I've been a long-time admirer of blockpartypress. Her work with metals is incredible and the final product is always beautiful and adorable! I mean, look at that necklace!

Happy Bokeh Wednesday

Flickr has a group called "Happy Bokeh Wednesday" where people post photos featuring beautiful bokeh... on Wednesdays. Bokeh refers to the elements in a photo which are out of focus. It could be smooth and soft, or they could be those little out-of-focus circles you see in the background sometimes. I find it really beautiful and it adds interest to photos.

This is an older photo. I took it while Jeremy and I were in Montreal last year. I edited the colouring slighting, but not much else.

I've been posting to our travel blog lately, so I haven't really been keeping up with posts here. I'll try to keep up a bit with non-travel related content :)

Have a great Hump Day! :D

Suitcases and the Beach

I decided to put something on my suitcases to help distinguish them from all the others in luggage claim. I did some doodles in my sketchbook and finally decided on these:
Cute, eh? I've got some luggage tags with Canadian flags on them too - gotta stay true to my roots. haha

Went to the beach on Saturday. It was gorgeous. Got some sun and some good shots in.
