It's been a while since I've made one of these.
Gotta dust off the pencils and scanner for such special occasions!
Current likes: witches, fortune tellers, and slightly askew text.

Currently enjoying my copy of Brooklyn Diary. It takes a look inside the daily lives of twenty-one Brooklyn artists, documented by ten different photographers. It would have been fun to have this book when I was in Brooklyn this summer. Interesting profiles, useful recommendations, and no shortage of beautiful photography. I was particularly excited to find a peek into Tim Harrington (Les Savy Fav!) and his families home in Williamsburg. Definitely interested in checking out more books by Lines & Shapes in the future.

New homestead hangables: this screen printed poster by Burlesque of North America. It's big and gorgeous in real life. I love the furrowed brows, the green green grass, and all that top right Rococo text business. Inspired.

This past weekend was ladies weekend. We drove up to Lake On The Mountain in Prince Edward County - a small grouping of cabins where they also brew their own beer! Crisp fall air and coffee on the lake = the best. I made some rustic looking graham crackers for smores (my obsession with recipes from Smitten Kitchen is apparently never ending). As you can see from the look in her eyes, Whitney was a master of marshmallow manipulation. Besides enjoying the gorgeous scenery, we watched a movie at the local theatre (The Town), bought vegetables from a farm using the honour system (amazing), locked ourselves out of our cabin (to be expected), played an exciting game of Personal Preferences (do you prefer kiwis or injections?), and bought copious amounts of baked goods for the ride home. Though I do love Toronto, I constantly fantasize about moving to a cottage or to the country (a practice I'm sure is common to all city dwellers at one time or another). I think it's safe to say that we've got a new tradition on our hands.

Have you ever wondered how ink is made? Here is an interesting and rather stunning short film about how ink is made at The Printing Ink Company. Produced by Vepo Studios. I love how it's made type pieces - especially when they're so gorgeous and feature dramatic piano scores!
