Parc Days..

These are the days that make me love Montreal, and my life here...

Days like this, make it really hard to focus on work.

I am currently looking for retailers to sell Little Houses in the New York, Boston, Philly area... if anyone could give me some tips on some great stores in that area, I would really appreciate it!

Here are a few pics from the recent photo shoot with photographer Mike Chui

It's a really rainy Sunday today, so I think I will focus completely on work.

Luvstory Sweater

Yet another sweater for fall :)

I'm quickly realizing that I am almost exclusively a sweater and jacket designer!

I suppose because sweaters and jackets tend to be my favorite thing to wear...

The newest addition to the Fall line is:

The Luvstory Sweater

My favorite model has been visiting the homeland of PEI for the past 7 weeks... it's so great to have her back!

A heads up to all you Montrealers out there... I will finally be selling at a store locally! It is located in Old Montreal on St-Pierre & St-Paul Ouest, called Gallery Zone Orange.

They will be stocked with Little Houses as of the first week of August :)

Goldsboro Jacket

I posted this sweater here the other day but it wasn't posted in my shop yet...
I have named it and it is now for sale in the shop....

The Augustine Sweater:

I have already posted the Goldsboro Jacket, but I really didn't like the photos... so here it is again, new and improved photo's by Mike Chui

I purchased this bike a few weeks ago for $20. Duncan and I took it apart, painted it, got some new bits and pieces for it... and voila! I'm in love with it now!

I think I will go for a ride right now....

Fall in the works...

It's been a bit of a sweat shop around the studio lately, I am frantically working on an order that is going to Japan, as well as trying to get my fall line finished... I just did some really long days and managed to get almost the entire order finished for Japan, and a few new things for fall...

My friend Mike and I went out and did a mini photo shoot of some new and old Little Houses stuff, he has sent me the first couple photos, here is a new sweater from the Fall 09 line.

I haven't even named it yet, or posted it for sale...

I will post more as they come... hopefully the fall line with actually be finished before fall arrives!


My friend send me this link to a Polaroid application, you can make your existing photo's look like old polaroids... I love it! Download it here

My husbands parents were here last week visiting, and the lovely Susan helped me finally spruce up my deck! I love it now...I plan to spend a lot of time out there this summer... if the summer ever makes it here!

So great... my new little sanctuary ...

Prince Edward Island

Duncan, Olive and I recently had a mini vacation to PEI.. it was my first time there and I totally fell in love with it. I can't remember the last time I left the honking horns and loud sirens of the city, to only hear the sound of the ocean every morning. It felt good. I really, really needed it.

My morning view.. a little different from St. Denis....

Our humble abode for 4 days...

Coffee's on the beach! Being here made me really miss the Ocean...

There was a whole lot of wholesome visits with the locals, fresh seafood, growlers, and walks on the beach... I could totally get used to this.

It was short but well worth it. Now it's back to fast paced city life and work, work, work!

To the sewing machine...

I love using my hands, I love making stuff and I love surrounding myself with people who love making stuff. I have a major sweet tooth and my favorite part of the day is teatime.
