The Spoonflower Handbook is Here

 I got this little gem in the mail the other day! Several months ago I sent Spoonflower a small contribution in response to a submission call for the book.
 It is signed by Stephen Fraser, co-founder of Spoonflower.
 I'm especially excited about pages 56-57!
 Published on those pages is a little insight on my design process, specifically colour selection.
My Belle Boulevard design accompanies the text.

Surface Pattern Pun

This cheery print is on a pencil skirt I bought at a thrift perfect! I love humourous designers!

Vintage Cat Bookmark: 1919 Emerson Book

I bought this book at a book fair in the spring. It is from 1919, was written by Emerson, and has an interesting green leather cover with Art Nouveau art. My mom is currently reading it and it appears she is the first person in all these years to do so--she has to slice the pages apart with a letter opener! 
That said, someone at least picked it up in the past and slipped a bookmark inside, cause as she was reading it this little guy fell out from the pages! Oh the delights of vintage books!

Montréal Architecture

 Some architectural snapshots from Montréal...
 This old CP telegraph building is now a glamourous condo.
Marché Bonsecours--hint hint--Le Musée du Costume et du Textile du Québec is in the basement!
