A Canadian's art and an Australian's shop

Since I am off today and am avoiding chores around the house, I thought I would give Jo a little break from a couple WINKS this coming weekend. First, I received an email from Zoe Pawlak, a painter and mom living and working in White Rock, British Columbia. She is incredibly talented, and all her work had me totally intrigued. Gorgeous colours and touching portraits and drawings. I love it all. See more of her amazing art here.


Lee McCabe also wrote us about a homewares site that his wife Jennifer has just launched, based in Australia. It's called Whiteport, which is a perfectly suitable name because all the products are white. "Our products look equally good in a city loft apartment or a sprawling beach house. White products are simple, timeless and complement any colour scheme." Selling all sorts of accessories for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and dining rooms, if you love white you've got to check out Jennifer's store (and they ship internationally). Here are some of my favourite items.

Random photos from readers

I have received several photos from readers the past couple of days that I want to share. I'll start with Nina's photos of her living and dining rooms. She wanted to share the gorgeous wall colour she chose for these spaces. "The colour is called Loyalist Green and it's made by Homestead Paints. I used it on parts of the main floor in my house about 2 years ago and it went on really well and only took a coat or two to cover the wall (this was just before teal/turquoise became all the rage.) Also it's milk based so didn't stink to high heaven." It is a great pale turquoise, and looks amazing with her decor. Thanks Nina!


Claudia of Adeeni Design Group enjoyed my teal post and sent some great photos of a dining space she designed for Elle Décor's Dining by Design last November with iridescent teal ostrich walls and floor by Valtekz. So elegant and the teal is stunning! Thank you Claudia!


Jennifer Ramos sent the following photo of her adorable boxer Darla, who just so happened to be standing next to a poster that is available in her shop. ;) Thanks Jen!


Well, while I'm posting random photos, here's one of some fabric I won on eBay this afternoon. I think it will be perfect for curtains in my soon-to-be-teal room.

le souk


Danielle de Lange, a fellow blogger of the fabulous the style files, recently opened an online store called le souk, filled with incredible, drool-worthy items. Not only is her store fab, but she is donating 5% of the profits to Women for Women, an organisation that helps women in war-torn regions rebuild their lives by providing them with job skills training, rights education, access to capital, assistance in small business development and financial and emotional support. So go on over and check it out. Here's a sneak peak of some of my favourites.
