A little gathering for a special furniture maker

I am a bit delayed posting this (it has been a nutso week) but last Friday my husband and I headed to The Modern Shop for a little meet & greet with Minnesota furniture maker Matt Eastvold. We had a really good time and OMG, Matt's furniture is seriously amazing. He has buckets of talent. The proof is below. 

And since I was hanging around enjoying some free vino, I snapped some photos of some goodies Mike is carrying in-store these days....

Sound of Lions new album!

My next door neighbour Marco and his band Sound of Lions are launching their new album called Take Me With You tomorrow (they're having a show at Zaphod). Marco was kind enough to send me the album a few weeks ago when I stopped his dog from mauling a random stray dog that showed up in their yard. :) It's an awesome album - alot more mellow than the first one but fabulous nonetheless. Here are a couple of my favourite songs that they released on Soundcloud as a preview the other day.


Remembering a warmer time...

Ottawa had yet another snowstorm last night and I am doubting that spring will ever arrive. It reminded me that I had not really shared any photos here of my trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last month (aside from my purchases). I would do anything to be able to go back there right now.
