summer forever

My weekends start on Thursday nights, and if this past weekend was any indication, this summer will be the best yet. I don't have any pictures to share, because I didn't take any (in contrast to last weekend, when I polished off three rolls of film; I did take some pictures for the photography course, but they weren't good). I was not even a little bit productive this weekend. I was so happy.

We finally had drinks with Juli and John at Oddfellows after stopping Narwhal for a Friends With You opening (incidentally, Queen's Park this weekend is going to be so fun). Erin drove us to Hamilton for the monthly art crawl, where we met Erin and Nick and Elizabeth for the first time. We spent a few moments with Tara-Lynn (who has a new website) and some friends, drinking $3 beers in a donut shop. We met Hollie & Jane and marveled at their beautiful new shop. We went to The Brain. There were birthday drinks with friends the next day, Annie was in town from New York, and the Irish Rose drinks at Three Speed were delicious as always (Waupoos Cider & Ribena). We took part in the Yard Sale Trunk Show, which was so much fun, as events at The Workroom always are. I ate pounds of cookies (including Nikole's incredible cookie clouds) and sweets.

I collapsed in a heap on Sunday night.

Everyone was beautiful and kind and I am always in awe of how many lovely & talented people are crammed into this 70 km radius. It makes making new friends so easy. Thank you, everyone.


The little kitten above was a purchase I made at White Elephant. I had to buy it. Oh and some of my ties are for sale at White Elephant: skinny, navy blue seersucker ones. Perfect for summer.

Celine: Aw, yeah, Toronto is so fun in the summer. I meant to talk to you about the new project this weekend but we were all so busy and easily distracted! I'll have more information about it soon.

  6. That sounds amazing! I love White Elephant and the lovely girls who own it. I recently met Erin and Elizabeth at the Brain, as they have a weekly knit night there. We bonded over crafts, and the shared blogs we follow (your included). Glad to hear you had such a great time in this amazing city. It's full of amazing place and people...

  8. your blog is so nice nice nice. It makes me nostalgic for a life I've never had. We very much have the same taste in knick-knacks (how do you actually spell this?). Even though I wear leather and studs on the daily, I like my home/current bedroom to be filled with chantilly and little flowers. Adore that kitty fabric a couple posts back. Would make a BEAUTIFUL dress. too many words...Hello goodbye!

  10. That cat looks fantastic & your weekend sounded fantastic. Just... fantastic-ness all around. My weekend consisted of outdoor festivals that could've been awesome, but were ruined by rain.. a shame.

  11. So happy to be a part of your weekend! Curry Twist in the Junction in our near future (I say this after we decided today that we can only eat dinner out 4 times a month, so it'll be extra special)!
