DHgate has all for travelling

Goodies from Jo!!!

I picked up a parcel on my way home from work today and holy sh*t was it heavy. I didn't think it was Jo's parcel, otherwise I would have gone home and gotten the car. My arms are still wobbly from carrying all that weight. Getting a parcel from Jo is like that feeling you get on Christmas morning. I get all giddy and cannot wait to uncover what she has found for me. Although she tends to spoil it and tells me about things she has found as she finds them but I have such a terrible memory it really doesn't matter. :)

Among the goodies are some fabrics from Ikea (there is no fabric at the Ottawa Ikea which is BEYOND RIDICULOUS and you can't order fabric on their website), Tibetan prayer flags, milk glass, sea shells, soup mugs, silver serving spoons, tiny glass bottles, a Hornsea creamer to match my canisters and coffee pot, a set of 3 Asian paintings, and a ceramic cat. A handle broke off one of the mugs (I can glue back) and a couple chips out of one of the china teacups (I can glue back), but then there's this below, which I sure as hell cannot glue back:

Ah well. It did travel halfway across the world. I bet it was pretty (she just emailed and told me this was a hanging planter). :)


One of my favourite quotes

When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me
that happiness was the key to life.
Went I went to school, they asked me
what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down "happy".
They told me I didn't understand the assignment
and I told them
they didn't understand life.


Remembrance Day 2009




A reader, Paddy, sent us this link the other day that had me gasping in delight. Seems there is a limited edition (of 500) gold metallic miniature version of the S chair released to celebrate the opening of the Panton Chair exhibition at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery. What I would do to get my hands on one of these!!


Kim's page

So this is MY PAGE. When Jo and I were trying to figure out what we could have as pages on the new blog, I thought it would be a nice touch to each have our own page where we can publish anything we want - mostly non-design related and more personal stuff. That way our readers get a glimpse into our lives and what interests us, besides design. I'm not sure what the heck I'll be posting here - so I guess you'll have to stay tuned. :)

Since Jo started off by talking a bit about herself then perhaps I should do the same. Well, I am a thirty-something web developper from Ottawa, Canada, and I live in Little Italy with my 7 cats. I bought my current home in December of 2007. It's far from my dream home, but at the time I was in a rush to find something that was liveable, and in the city. My house was apparently built in 1915, is 926 sq. ft. and is 12' 2" wide. Every room in the house needs work, and it's a slow work in progress (my boyfriend Jeff is a huge help with my house projects so you'll notice him mentioned often). I have had the kitchen gutted and remodeled (see my kitchen blog), and hope to maybe add on to the back of the house. Here's a little glimpse (and there's much more on Flickr).
