Mjolk

Photo of a big bunny  rabbit!

It was always a childhood dream of mine to own a pretty shop and live above it. Life would be so simple and most importantly, your cat could follow you downstairs to work and you could spend all day, everyday together!

Toronto couple John Baker and Juli Daoust do exactly that (I'm not too sure about the cat part). They live in a beautifully renovated Victorian building that reminds me of all the Scandinavian homes I've looked at over the years and run their shop, Mjolk, from downstairs.

Found via Miss Moss, photos from Dwell and Mjolk.

cycles lady

I only spent one night in Amsterdam last year and in the 10 or so hours that I was there it felt like I encountered more bicycles than I had in my entire lifetime (a teeny bit of an exaggeration but you get my point). Now I'm in no position of authority to comment on Cape Town's bicycle culture, I don't spend nearly enough time in the city centre, but I think it's slowly catching up to that of European cities.

Cycles Lady is run by Moscow native and photographer Alena Chendler and is a little side project of hers where she documents all the stylish ladies on bicycles around her city. I definitely think Cape Town needs something like this. Maybe we have something similar already and I just haven't heard about it?

Leah Goren's scarves

In Cape Town where it rains throughout almost all of winter (it's raining right now) I've made it my lifelong mission to amass a collection of scarves that'll be envied throughout all seven kingdoms! Sorry, I've been watching too much game of thrones this past week.

My theory with scarves is simple: you can NEVER have too many. The same goes for cardigans. And shoes.

This is Leah Goren's fall scarf preview and well, I'd like one of each please.

Velvet Moon Spring 2014

I was completely drawn to Velvet Moon's Spring 2014 collection. Cover me in foliage and drape me in comfortable, simple clothing and I'll be happy.

Gina Marie Vintage (the namesake brand of Velvet Moon's creator, Gina Marie Landes) is a minimalistic, vintage-inspired, bohemian clothing line. It is designed for women who want to feel as good as they look and fill their wardrobe with staple pieces that will last for a lifetime, not just a season.

Rebecca Artemisa

This week has been tough. So much work and so little time. But I thought since it's Friday and I'm moving tomorrow (eeek)I should share something cheery and whimsical that'll make the end of the week that much sweeter.

Rebecca Artemisa is a painter, drawer and tea drinker from Portland, Oregon. Her work all looks very happy and bright until you notice that it's actually got a bit of a spooky quality to it. It's always fun finding ghosts in unexpected places.

Have a great weekend all!
