I had seen that folding chair somewhere around the web before, but how AWESOME is that BBQ lamp huh!? And the custom wooden bike… I have no words! :)

Last week, myself and my friends Noémie and Tamara were featured on an awesome blog called Nous Sommes Les Filles (We Are The Girls). The site is run by Julie Artacho (photographer) and Sarianne Cormier (coordinator). It presents wonderfully talented Quebec chicks and their work thru a picture and an interview, and we are now part of it! How awesome right? :)
We were lucky too, we got to have a group shot! So, check out my feature, as well as Noémie’s and Tamara’s post too!! It’s in French, but I’m sure Google Translator can help y’all out :)
La semaine dernière, moi-même ainsi que mes amies Noémie et Tamara furent présentées sur le blogue Nous Sommes Les Filles. Le site a été mis sur pied par Julie Artacho (photographe) et Sarianne Cormier (coordonatrice). Le blogue présente des filles talentueuses du Québec et leur travail à travers photo et entrevue, et notre trio fait maintenant parti de l’aventure! Génial non? :)
Nous avons même eu le petit extra d’une photo de groupe! Allez, c’est le temps de lire mon billet, ainsi que celui de Noémie et de Tamara! :)
Oh YEAH! My fabulous friend Mélanie Favreau is Featured Seller (go read the interview!) on Etsy starting today! WOOHOO!!! I’m so proud of her and happy!!
‘Cause she ROCKS and her work ROCKS! I own several of her pieces and adore them!
Sterling silver jewelry, from geometric shapes to mustaches and chevrons, you’ll just fall in love with everything, I’m telling ya! :)
Now, go shop! :D
Je t’aime! <3
I don’t know why, but the morning of August 18, I felt like taking my fun day in picture. And so, I did! Here’s some shots & story!!
Blogging & working & transportation!
I was meeting Marie-Pier of Days of August that day for a chit-chat, who was back home in Montreal this month, as she lives in Australia! We went to her sister’s bakery called Pâtisserie Rhubarbe on Laurier St. East. What a cute little (and yummy) place, I totally adored it!
With a belly full of yummy stuff, and with some rain falling on our heads, we headed nearby to one of my consignment stores, Buk&Nola, so I could drop some more of my jewelry there! I just love this store! Every time I go in I want to buy something new for my home! It’s actual torture not to.
Came back home, exhausted, but happy. And that deserves ordering sushi, right? :P
For a little bit more of pictures of my days, head out here! :)
At Hazel & Hunter you’ll find wonderful spruced up vintage furniture you’ll fall in love with!
From right here in Montreal, Julie finds great shapes in chairs and benches and then runs to the studio to pair them with new fabrics to give them a new life! Also check out her wonderful pillows!
Montrealer Eva Juliet offers prints with positive messages and beautiful graphics and illustrations. Typography is given lots of importance in them, too!
English versions also available, but obviously, I suggest the French ones! :)
Pretty & soothing!
Woah! My last posts are almost all about food! Anyway, y’all don’t seem to mind :)
This year I got all Etsy gifts from my boyfriend! YAY! (So yes, he finally has an account!! Woohoo!)
One of them was by the lovely Montreal seller Julie aka Purpose Design, whom I had the chance to meet a month ago at one of my craft shows. I now have the large Chai Tea Kit that I wanted to have for like, forever! WOOHOO!! It’s super YUM!!
But tea is not the only thing happening over there! Spices, spices and more spices! Stuff I’ve never even heard of like fenugreek, galanga, turmeric and caraway seeds. (In my defense, I might actually know what they are if I had the French word for them!) You can take already assembled kits (mexican, french, asian and more!), or you can customize your own by choosing yourself! Everything comes in cute tins and a wonderful hand brushed aluminum box!
Her shop happens to be 2yr old this week, so she’s having a great SALE (Jan. 13 to 20)! Head on over there to the Shop Announcement for details.
Happy Etsyversary Julie!!
