Botanicals


Neece Clark emailed this week with a link to her website. She and Christi Anne Hofland have recently opened a new business, "Bespoke", which specializes in hand-painted pattern and design for walls and surfaces, Fine Art murals, customized wall treatments, and interior colour consultation. Her paintings of blowzy drowsy peonies and romantic roses are so lush you can feel their perfume wafting through the monitor. Petals and leaves crowd canvases. These are a few of my favourites. I'm especially in love with the lotus loo.

What Jo's doing this weekend


HELP!!!!! The UFOs are taking over. The fact that I have enough of everything is not stopping me from hunting down the bargains. But what bargains!!!!! The credenza was all of $39. There's a lot of work and a couple of chips to fix and it is only veneer BUT it was only $39. Dining room or office?


The headboard (or bedhead as we like to call them) was a steal at $15 and will grace the master bedroom. Still deciding on a colour. The two cute bedside tables were bought a few weeks apart and were destined for the bedroom as well but now I want to use these......


a glass topped pair also thrifted and in the process of turning red! I'll have to find a new home somewhere for the others. Or maybe I'll leave the decision until the room is pulled together a bit more. So this is what I'm doing this weekend. Painting and procrastinating on which pieces where. Oh and praying for rain! We're in the middle of a severe draught here on level 6 water restrictions with only bucket watering of plants. That's why my poor little courtyard has only a few sad plants and a couple of blades of grass I'm struggling to keep alive. It better rain soon!!

Claude-Simon Langlois

Claude-Simon Langlois, a photographer from Montreal, recently emailed me his portfolio. I LOVE receiving emails from people promoting their talents, especially from fellow Canadians. So a big thank you to Claude-Simon, and here's a peek into his portfolio.
