make yourself at home

A short while ago,
I had the good fortune to stay at
a nice hotel, in a swishy room.  
Nice furnishings and a generous amount
of space for a Hotel room....
By my standards.
My photos don't give a sense of the space,
but you can enjoy a few of the furnishings.

 The shiny, tiled shower enclosure 
was bigger than my entire at-home bathroom.

Welcome to July . . .

Hello July
and all your inherent humid, steamyness.

Time to think of 
new and fun summer shoes . . . . 

and by the way, 
did you find your way
to the Uppercase site yet? 
you'll have such fun with their magazines. 
Published quarterly.  
In Canada.

knit up

This week, I will finish
work on this feather-light "shawlette". 
This has been a very enjoyable project and 
the finished work will be a gift.  

Here are the yarns that i used
to make the shawl . . . 
they're both by Madeline Tosh.

This photograph, below,
was taken at the end of April, here in Montreal.
It's hard to imagine that this was merely two months ago.
We've had a hot and steamy week - 
it's amazing how quickly things change.

hello gorgeous

I love this floral Gucci print.  

Here you see it on the 
back of a beautiful magazine.  
I would just love to wear this blouse.  I believe
that this Gucci print last circulated in the 19880's.
