Hey there, Sunshine!
The first week of June is here! Yeehaw and bust out the margaritas! (or icy green smoothies, if you’d rather ;P) Yesterday’s launch of the new Art UN Series, Featuring The Makerie Studio really hit a note with many of you – thank you for all of your feedback and emails! Your input is always very much appreciated.
Here in Mississauga, Ontario, our summer planning is in high gear as the kids enter the home stretch of the school year and those premium weeks ahead start to take the shape of fun, fun fun!
Also in the spirit of cool and fun – the eleventh POTW installment. I raise both of my glasses (wink!) to you, to inspiration and to the marvelous month of June. Cheers!
PICS OF THE WEEK
EAT WEAR YOUR GREENS
For those green goddesses who are really, REALLY keen on their veggies…
SEND WOULD-BE BURGLARS A MESSAGE
This is Why I’m Broke‘s description of designer Reed Wilson‘s ($50!!) unique “welcome” mat says it all: “Improve your home security without expensive security system costs – these welcome mats let any potential burglar know the contents of your home pale in comparison to the neighbors who have better stuff, despite your disposition for buying overpriced junk from this website.”
A BIKE AND A CAR
A lot of paint + a little car = huge impact.
“Renewal requires opening yourself up to new ways of thinking and feeling”
― Deborah Day
SO A JEDI WALKS INTO AN UMBRELLA STORE…
Right, so there’s no real punchline here (does there even need to be?), but there IS one funky fresh umbrella. Sure to have your favourite sci-fi geek drooling, “The Star Wars Star Destroyer Umbrella” is still only in the “concept stage”. (Shhh…if you listen carefully you’ll hear the collective sighs of despondency ;P). Still, this lucky lady was able to get her pose on with the sure-to-be-future bestseller :D
THE ONE WITH THE BOOKS
If you’ve been with me since my first Pics of the Week , you know that my love of books almost always spills into this series. Be it a book rug, a book dress, or book sculpture, I try to squeeze books in wherever I can. This week, I was particularly taken with this simple shot of a (well stocked!) bookstore at Kanda, Tokyo, Japan. Is there anything better than stacks and stacks of books?
