Noah Webb

Now I have never heard of Noah Webb (New York photographer) untill now. But I do like him and his work. Noah took 4,500 stills of Los Angeles based musician Sara Lov to make this fun little stop motion film clip.

Enjoy Peter Pan collars, Dancing feet, Mary Poppins pop out of control draws and watching flowers being drawn.

& this is why I must learn French





And this is why I must learn french~Purely to be able to read what this is all about.

I just found this French Artist on "Neck of the Woods" blog page and I am just in complete awe.

Swig is a beautiful felt designer based in Paris, France and makes the most stunning little animals.

Enjoy her work.

Make it

So this morning I went on a little adventure with my dear friend Lizy Loo.

We went to the Farmers Market where we found many eatable treats and I bought a raspberry macaroon~it will be my first since my trip to Paris~how will it compare I wonder!?

Then we headed to "Make it"- (the hand made revolution) where again we discovered some up coming talent and creative geniuses.
This was by far the pick of the day.


heydaydesign has been in love with vintage canning jars ever since finding their first ‘improved gem’ jar in the summer of 2008; since then, they've discovered an impressive array of styles in the cupboards and basements of our grandparents as well as, luckily, the odd thrift store.

These are a true delight and inspired me greatly.

One day I will have one of my very own.

Happy Late Easter



My Darlings.

I'm sorry for my blog neglect. Though better late than never. Wishing you a Happy Easter.
I hope your Easter weekend was full of Joy. Reflection and the ones that you hold closest to your hearts.
I went to my Church's morning service then spent the day at my Canadian families home and enjoyed a waffle buffet. We painted eggs and transformed Shane into a cartoon character with a play dough face. Then we had a huge Easter egg hunt in an empty and abandoned building.
I do love Easter.

Fun Little Find

I need to explore etsy more! There are so many wonderful artists and designers. ahh! So here's my latest little find. A New York City artist Kristiana Pärn. I do just love bears and this creation.

Cake Decorating



Cake Decorating has been something that I've always wanted to do and finally I got to share decorating cakes with some of the most wonderful women in the world.
Here are some of the photos of our (dalyce and my) finished cakes.

They are delicious.

Chocolate cake with Raspberry butter cream or chocolate butter cream.

Heaven!

"For you"


To the one who gave that song to me in the park -I thank you.


Now I just wanted to share some thrilling things that I saw, discovered and experienced this past weekend.

It was a sweet Sunday afternoon and I got milkshakes with some friends of mine and then I went to Princess Island Park and my spirit was overwhelmed with many sweet things.

The Busyness of the park and how geese and ducks were plodding around and filling the sky. People cheerfully walking their dogs, bike riders merrily receiving the breeze on their faces and through their hair, children selling lemonade at a little stand to raise money for Haiti and an accordion player releasing kind melodies into the park air.

My heart sighs at days like these.

I want to ride my bicycle




I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike,

Bicycle, Bicycle!
How tremendous and sweet are these bikes by "Beg"

and Oh, how I do wish for a bike like this.

I'd love nothing more than to bike everywhere~especially now that spring is here and to have a pretty little basket on the front to carry my things in and I may even like to get a little bell.

As my Pa would say "Isabell necessary on a bike?"~ Pa, my answer is yes. Most certainly yes indeed.

You just made my day




Darling Alyssa (from "i like nice things") you just made my day by sharing these!


I'm like a bird who is enthralled and intrigued by pretty and shiny things.

These are way to much fun and have inspired me so.

Enjoy browsing through ban.do

I dare you to treat yourself!

Know what~ I double dare you!!

Spring



Oh Spring how I do long for you.
As it is meant to be in spring right now and clearly is not due to the never ending snow, I wanted to share some spring inspired photos to encourage us in or waiting.


This is what spring is for me.

Budding Flowers, picnics, sweet fragrant air, getting lost in fields and flower patch's, purposely picking flowers or buying posies, markets, pretty dresses accompanied by little cardigans, new life and charming singing birds.

Staircase Walls.





Oh my goodness.

I was completely captivated and carried away with this little ladies dreamy artworks. Her name is Jill. Jill Labieniec. And what a talent she is.

She fills her work with bubble blowing pipes, Boys and Girls who I think are in love, sailboats and little french shop windows.

I will tell you of how I came across these treasures.

I was casually browsing and day dreaming-just minding my own business in the Anthropologie store in Seattle when I heard the sweet whisper of the staircase wall calling my name. Little did I know this work would completely steal my attention and my heart.

My eyes instantly attached to the wall and each piece of her art carried me up the staircase. I wanted to buy every piece of her work and let me just say- her art made my heart glad and put a sheer smile on my face.

La La Land.


Guys Guess What??!!
Now you can purchase some of my work on cards!

~Oh what FUN!~

I have partnered with the Australian based company "La La Land" to create cards that give you a place for to share kind words, sweet thoughts and maybe even love notes.

You can find and purchase them here.

Hope you enjoy them.
