Not that I live in a studio loft.

Just sayin'.

Nesting Newbies

Has anyone discovered this online publication yet? I recently heard from their editor, Jodi Murphy, and I'll honestly say, I like it!

NestingNewbies.com combines a traditional magazine format with the new social media trend of original online videos and blogs to present a cross-platform experience for “nesting newbies,” the site’s target audience of those who are new to nesting and have no clue when it comes to cooking, entertaining, and decorating. Cooking and decorating enthusiasts will also enjoy the original ideas being presented.

Interesting concept, don't you think? Click here to have a peek into Nesting Newbies most recent issue!

Miha Matei Photography

Will winter ever end? Although I must say that here in Toronto we are getting a bit of a break this year, not too much snow thank goodness.

One of the things helping me through the sunless days is lots of vitamin D, and doses of pretty photography.

Miha Matei has recently found it's way into my favorites....enjoy!!!

Born in Bucharest, Miha spent her childhood summers on her grandparents’ farm in the Romanian countryside. Climbing apple and cherry trees, helping raise the family pig and chickens, and eating farm-fresh food every day, she never wanted to go back to the city. Even though her family moved to New York when she was 11, the colors and beauty of those childhood days on the farm still inspire her today.

Upon graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in photography, Miha spent several years as a Photo Editor before concentrating on her own photo work full-time. Miha’s roster includes editorial, advertising and publishing clients and in 2008 PDN selected her as one of “30 Photographers to Watch.”

In her spare time, Miha can be found roaming local farmers markets in Brooklyn where she lives with her husband Marc and son Medby.

The rest speaks for itself.

HBC Point Blanket Style

With the 2010 Winter Olympics kicking off in Vancouver this past weekend, my heart has been overflowing with Canadian pride. Most especially since we just won out first ever Gold metal on home soil. It totally made me cry. I'm such a suck sometimes.

Some of you watching the coverage on TV may be noticing a theme with the decor in the athlete's village, even on some of the winter accessories that reporter's and athlete's are wearing. Notice the stripes everywhere of green, yellow, black & red? These are the "official" colors of Canada's Hudson's Bay Company, and also the colors mainly seen in the historical HBC Point Blanket.

I think my great aunt had a peacoat made from one of these blankets in the 70's. Actually, they are all the "rage" right now, if you can find one. Good luck with that.
