i heart tuesdays

Over the weekend, I spent a blissful time roaming the internet filling up my virtual shopping basket with things I love at the moment. Have you ever done this - just give yourself absolute freedom to choose 15-20 items of anything your heart desires? It's kind of fun, totally therapeutic and easy on the wallet! The results of my list can be seen over on Mrs. French's blog, Bliss. It was a guest post I did for her yesterday but since many people were on holiday you might not have seen it. Here's a little taste of what I'm hearting right now.

These malachite printed blinds from the home of Anne-Marie Midy and Jorge Almada of the furniture line Casamidy.

To see what else I'm hearting head over to Bliss now!

artist's studio & a winner

It's actually a holiday today in Canada so I'm just popping in briefly to announce the winner of the smock top giveaway. The winner of the Patouche top is Airin who loved the red leg warmers.  Congratulations Airin! We'll be in touch with you shortly.

Finally, I'd thought I'd leave you with some images of Donald Judd's former studio at 101 Spring Street in New York. The Design Observer has a great essay that Donald Judd wrote about preserving this 19th century cast iron building and the condition it was in when he bought it. Definitely worth a read if you have few moments this holiday Monday.

What I wouldn't do to get my hands on a place like this!
