A walk in the park...

I was out today and came upon this, Wish Come True, an instillation by Friendswithyou. It was amazing check out the photos below.

Above is one of three spots you could bounce in. I kept being told that the bouncers were for everyone but thought I'd leave that to the kids.
Above, the adorable paper they were handing out, a couple of pins and one of the polaroids I took. If you're in Toronto make sure you check it out.

New York, New York

I love New York! And each time I go I come home with lots of fun stuff. The trip last week was like no other.
Above is a collection of some of the things I have from my trip. Included are some Polaroid's, a hanky from MUJI, items I bought at the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn, ticket stubs, a journal and business cards galore.
One of my favourite things to do in NYC is go to the many parks I love, above, Washington Square Park.
Next, me in the East Village on my way to some amazing fish tacos. A good tip for any traveller is to always carry a pen and notebook - write down the places you go and pick up a business card. This not only is a great reminder for your next rip but my friends always ask for my top picks and it's great to be able to tell them.
The Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn!!! I had so much fun. Can you tell I was excited? When we planned the trip I didn't know that this was going to be going down but when I found out I couldn't wait. I kept walking around before trip singing "No Sleep 'til Brooklyn" by The Beastie Boys. Now, for what I had to bring home.
My new favorite accessory - the braided leather cuff from Death and Texas - I don't think I've taken it off since we got home. Check out the etsy store, everything is beautiful. I think a belt might be in my future.
I love a grab bag and this one from Sesame Letterpress is a great one. It is full of cards, coasters and tags. I love it all especially the anchor coaster. Some of the other highlights - DINER in Brooklyn - the food was out of this world (Aaron said it's the best food he's eaten EVER), The Slackers concert, all the food, music and people. Thank you New York, hope to see you again soon.

Summer In the City

This past Sunday was Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington Market and it was the perfect day. Aaron's band The Speaking Tongues played and I was able to get some great photos of them playing.

We DIY'ed some free CD's of a live recording and it was a feeding frenzy. Who could ask for a better Sunday in the City.
