It's not hard being green...


I didn't celebrate St. Paddy's Day with green beer, but I did purchase a khaki green laptop briefcase from Canadian design company Matt and Nat. Does this count?

I was über pleased to find a functional + fashionable bag that will carry my laptop, files and should I desire...my personal belongings. There is a sleek and gorgeous colour option of white with contrasting black trim available on the Matt & Nat website and select European Apple stores, but my earthy green bag cost me only one-fourth the price! Booyah! I thank my Lucky Charms :)

The exterior is made of a quality vegan leather and inside you will find multiple compartments made of a faux-suede material stamped with "LINING MADE FROM 45 RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES". How cool is that?

I'll consider this to be my small contribution to be a little greener everyday of the year and not just on St. Patrick's Day.

Hello Spring?


I love the retro look of these wedding cakes (even with the disproportionate cake toppers)! The vintage colours and minimalist designs sit perfectly atop milk glass pedestal stands; it makes me smile and look forward to Spring...if it ever gets here?

Speaking of Spring, we're excited about our first upcoming show for the season.  On May 10th, we'll be back at Vancouver General Hospital for their annual Spring Artisan Market, where we will debut a new display for Izzy and Buds Jewelry Designs. I don't want to spoil the surprise just yet, so stay tuned for an update and maybe some photos :)
