• To All The Knits I’ve Loved Before

    January 17, 2019 Kate

    Well, well, well. What do we have here. If it isn’t… the year Kate heretofore nominated as the one she will give YouTube an honest go. Let me be clear: this video is not “quality content”, and I sure as heck have a thing or two to learn about lighting and focus (and apparently sound…

  • Julie Moon: Acid Garden Exhibition at Birch Contemporary

    January 14, 2019 Kate

    Julie Moon’s exhibition “Acid Garden” at Birch Contemporary has been extended through to January 26th, 2019. I popped in to see it last week and I loved seeing her sculptures up close—those textures! the colours. I’m more familiar with her wearables (her pins and earrings are amazing!) and had never seen her sculptures in person. If…

  • Handmade Porcelain Bird Ornament by JB + DG

    January 14, 2019 Kate

    Look at this sweetest of birds, handmade by the lovely Dayna Gedney (one half of JB + DG). I bought it from her at the Crown Flora holiday market last month. Because Dayna’s the best, she let me pick out the one I wanted before I even got to the market. She sent me pictures…

  • Here’s To 2019 And Following Nudges

    January 5, 2019 Kate

    A new year but little has changed—still enjoying my golden hour walks around Leslieville. It’s funny, I was walking along Queen St and about to turn around when I felt this little tug to keep going. Looking ahead the next couple of blocks didn’t look particularly exciting, they honestly looked pretty bleak, so I was standing…

  • Build It Make It You’re It

    December 13, 2018 Kate

      Makers make things happen. We build the thing. We do the thing. We show up. The outcome doesn’t really matter. Only the process does, because that’s the bit we can control.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Creativity is a posture. It’s an approach to your work and a way of seeing the world. It’s making a way when…

  • 15 Second Glossier Unboxing

  • To Love Where You Live, What A Gift

    December 11, 2018 Kate

    If it’s not clear from the tag (Love Letter to the East End) I really, really love where I live. I go for walks through my neighbourhood nearly every day, and every day I find some new giver of joy. Some unexplored corner, some unseen detail, some inexplicable goodness. ❤️

  • A Walk to The Distillery District

    December 11, 2018 Kate

    Photos from a walk down and around the Distillery District at the end of November. While couples were taking selfies in front of the entrance to the Christmas Market, I was squatting on the sidewalk across the street taking pictures of crumbling bricks. I mean, that’s really all you need to know about me as a…

  • Where Stollerys Once Stood

    December 11, 2018 Kate

    These pictures were taken on November 17th. I hadn’t been to Yonge and Bloor since the summer, and I can’t believe the changes we’ve seen to that intersection over the past 4 years. Namely, I still can’t believe the Stollerys building was taken down. Toronto’s architectural heritage preservation leaves a lot to be desired. I don’t…

  • Another Winning Window Display in Leslieville

    December 10, 2018 Kate

    Well, that window display’s a little haunting, isn’t it? My apologies. These photos are from a walk around Leslieville back in early November. I got behind on my editing/uploading (again, I know!). I had a concussion in October, and since then I’m been slowly increasing my screen usage. It’s only been in the last week…
