Hellllooooo June! Can’t believe you’re here already. Don’t you think that the beginning of the month is a such great time to get inspired! Speaking of such things, I can’t wait to share more details soon on a course I am taking that starts this coming Monday. It’s called Fibre Arts with Natural Dyes and it’s sure to be an amazing experience in something that’s totally new! xx

everlane comes to canada

everlane

When I stumbled upon Everlane about a year ago I wished very much that their products would be available to Canadians. It’s not very often that a company pushes so hard for something like that, but Everlane did. With their #CrowFundCanada campaign they have made their way North!

Since then, I’ve been obsessed with their clean lines, cheeky spirit, and luxurious basics at reasonable prices. It’s all about transparency; their MO is cutting out the middleman in order to pass mega savings along to their customers. Works for me, and can’t wait to place my first order! xx

merry christmas from the a&o

 merryxmas

Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it! The computer was in the shop and it’s taken quite some time to get it all reorganized and to get my blog-necessary programs all reinstalled. What a pain, eh! But, I’m still here and looking forward to a very Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays to all ; )

the a&o turns one

Time flies when you’re having fun!! This morning I thought I would take a look and see when I did my first post as I thought I might be coming up on a year. And, wouldn’t you know it, a year ago today! The a&o turns one. What a busy year it’s been. I definitely feel like I have been able to get my creative juices flowing and cannot wait to see what the next year brings. A nice birthday surprise, the other day, Yasmin of the Hermit Homewares blog nominated me for a One Lovely Blog Award – eeep – what an honour! I will be following up with a post to explain, and give more thanks to her, very soon ; )

housekeeping

Today was a day for housekeeping. Self { 8 km run } home { cleaning, laundry etc… } and online { I updated my Tumblr with a new theme!! }. One thing that I am always always thinking about adding to our loft is some sort of signage. We love art, but I have always wanted something a little kitsch-y to put up i.e. an antique sign. And to top that off, wouldn’t it just be great it it was neon! I absolutely love neon; the look, the buzz, the vintage vibe it gives off. So, let’s get the hunt going! Some pics above to inspire…

atlas assortment no.09

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an atlas assortment hasn’t it! I love my teeny tiny rose gold Bing Bang NYC skull earrings so just ordered the ring set { #1 } and can’t wait for it to arrive { let’s not talk about how I recently formed an addiction to online shopping… } If you frequent my Tumblr you will also note that I am completely obsessed with palm trees lately, who wouldn’t love a palm tree pillow { #5 }. Have a great weekend y’all!
