It's the same, almost every day, walking past the same places, people. I find it incredibly dull. To cure me of my malaise, I thought I'd start drawing my day.
Among the beautifully shot pictures of the newest space, there are a couple tucked in that feature my daughter Maggie and my living room wall! It's really nice to see: 1) my kid in such a cute dress and scene! 2) my home looking so much more amazing than I can imagine.
Maggie (on the left) and Sophie! I really want to know what they are talking about.
My living room fireplace wall. Years ago, when my friends lived in the same house, Lynda and I had a discussion about how they could spruce up this wall. She suggested the chalkboard paint, and I completely agreed. A couple years later, when our friends switched houses with us, I dove in and painted! This particular design was inspired by Julia Rothmans 'Daydream' wallpaper.
I love this time of year, when things start to show their pretty selves in my garden. I took some close-ups of (clockwise from top left): Zinnias, Stonecrop, Marigold, Wormleaf Stonecrop, Evening Primrose, another Stonecrop, QuickFire hydrangea (whose blooms will turn from white to pinky-red), the bloom on my Hens and Chicks. Enough about me, what's in your garden?
I think Toronto is heading for some steamy weather and perhaps a dry spell or two. At any rate, I hope to hop on my bike and toodle around the neighbourhood. Here are some research pictures I took for my June calendar.
oh my goodness. My friend Mark sent me the following pictures that he took while travelling. These totally beat my selection any day.
The first (who steers?), the second is plastic, the third (bottom left i think) is a really popular bike in Copenhagan, and the fourth was taken in Amsterdam.
At least that is what I keep telling myself. I am waiting for the sun.
What a great looking bicycle! Minus the green plastic seat protector, the uninspired ring post and the cigarette butts.....
