Beach Studio Tour: Spring 2015


It's Spring in the Beach, and even though it may not feel like it most days (hail, really?!?!), the yellow bikes are out and about, heralding the next Beach Studio Tour.  The Studio Tour celebrated their 20th anniversary this Fall and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek. Needless to say, I'm hooked now! It's so inspiring to see all the amazing work being created in the neighbourhood.

Last night, Above Ground Art Supplies hosted a preview of the next tour where all the artists were in attendance.  Each of them had work displayed and was happily answering questions from guests about their mediums and inspiration.

It was a real treat to get a taste of the work that's going to be on display next weekend in these makers' homes and studios.  

To learn more, visit the Beach Studio tour website where you can find detailed bios of all the artists and information on their new passport system.

See you in the Beach!

New Orleans: through the fog


Our first week back in New Orleans has been foggy and rainy.  It sounds silly, but my favourite thing about being here is just being here.  I've been inspired to get out and take some pictures again.  I'm finding myself drawn to bits of shine.  I've been embracing a muted colour palate and I've loved hunting for unique signage and fonts.

Saturday Zen


I ran into this little guy at one of my favourite cafes in New Orleans this week.  He really seemed to be living his life, you know?  Happy Saturday!

When 10 months away feels like 10 months too many.


It took 16 hours longer than we expected, and a surprise sleepover in Washington, but this week we went from one extreme to the other.  

Oh, New Orleans. It's so good to be back.

Just a few of my favourite sights from our first few hours back.
