I am too romantic, and other things that happened today.

Every now and then I visit Toast's website, and then I spend quite a bit of time idealizing English country life, and then I think about how I should really prioritize that trip to visit my husband's English family. And do some shopping. Some very expensive shopping. And then I sort of snap out of it.

Anyway: the clothes, they are so pretty! And the housewares, too.

Pretty Paper. By Me!

So you may know, or you may not even know, that I've got a little line of stationary that I've been developing. And I've finally started to sell it through my etsy shop. So if you know anyone who needs invitations for an event, send them my way! I'll be adding more to it in the next month or so.

And I've just started selling these little notecard sets, made with some of my watercolour illustrations.

We spent this past weekend in Oakville at a lovely wedding on the lake. The groom was one of Chris' oldest friends - they met in the fourth grade!

We packaged some treats up for them with their wedding gift. I really want to try that mustard. I feel like a spicy zing with every meal lately.

A few nice things for a lovely November day.

* A little glimpse of some work I'm doing for a client.
* A baby quilt I made for a special (pregnant) friend. Ready to send off!
* Forelle pears. Yum. 
* Just about the prettiest tea packaging I've seen. From Clipper UK. Tastes wonderful too!
* New Books! And they're fantastic. Rebecca Solnit's Storming the Gates of Paradise, Maira Kalman's And the Pursuit of Happiness and Bruce Mau & friends The Third Teacher.

We started reading And the Pursuit of Happiness last night. It's so delightful and moving. And we saw Bruce Mau speak last week and were compelled to buy this book afterwards.

* Dinner last night. The un-healthiest salad ever, with a side of zucchini. My specialty.
