} Think & Ink




Sometimes, all you need is a shape. Or 2 dozens of the same shape in a single item.

Think & Ink Studio back in Richmond (BC, Canada) does just that, creating mostly paper items filled with cool geometric designs and smart color combos. Prints, notepads, cards… THAT MOUSEPAD. Wow, I want it. :D

} Jenna Rose






Jenna Rose‘s work is cute as a button! Each piece of cloth is hand screen printed in house using non-toxic waterbased pigments on natural and organic materials, all mastered in the country side, in Ontario (Canada). Adorned with cute patterns, fabrics are usually organic cotton or hemp or linen, or a blend of these.

She was an Etsy Featured Seller a year ago, an interesting read! :)

} Patch

This weekend, I was looking at the Cargoh (a BC Canadian company) newsletter when I noticed the big banner on Patch (also a BC Canadian company).

How wonderful is this product, seriously! Patch is basically a year-round indoor herb gardening system. Obviously, other eatables can be grown in them (such as lettuce, for example), and obviously, you can also put them outside (everything is washable) on your small city balcony in the summer.

The system ” “self waters” by using a technique called sub irrigation, which allows the water to enter the soil through capillary action”, how practical!

Also eco-friendly, the “Patch herb planter body is made with Tyvek (a HDPE), which has all the properties of paper film and fabric. It’s fully recyclable, washable, and stain resistant. The interior components are made of PP #5. All of these components are fully recyclable.” They ship flat (simple assembly instructions are added to your package), so that is also cost and space efficient as far as shipping goes.

3 styles are offered, as well as a price for a 3-pack to make you save a little compared to a single planter purchase!

Also, customer service is totally top notch. I emailed a question, and within 4 hours, Kent Houston himself (the founder and CEO) replied to me with the info. How wonderfully great is that, right!?

Lightly said, I am in love with Patch already, hence, I will go order 3 right this second. ;)

(And I’ll make sure to update you guys on how it all unfolds in my actual home!)

} I am a Food Blog




Sometimes the most perfect blog names are those who just tell it straight to your face. Just like I am a Food Blog, Sophie’s outlet for her love of food and photography, over in Vancouver.

A bold and crisp look, beautiful pictures and detailed recipes. You basically can’t ask for more. That is, after you realize you can’t just lick your screen to get a taste. :P

} Ndustries




I have a love of the vintage. But I don’t have the tools (nor the skills) to modify and repurpose some. Yet, anyway.

Over at Ndustries (Toronto), Nigel does just that, and beautifully! As of now, he concentrate on lighting and stools/magazine racks, but oh, you can just feel the possibilities his talent has for so much more too! I will def be checking this shop often! ;)
