the friday files

I have the best blog readers! It has been such a pleasure this week reading all the thoughtful comments you have left for Alanna. It was so nice to hear from so many of you. I get the feeling that many of you stop by here every now and then but rarely leave comments which is absolutely fine but it is good to hear your voices! Don't forget you still have this weekend to enter the giveaway. If you follow me on facebook or twitter than you probably already know that I did a little piece for House & Home's online TV this week. They came by about 6 weeks and filmed me talking about my house. I'll admit it was pretty nerve-wracking. I've never done anything like that before. I think my saving grace was that I was talking about the one thing I know best in the world - my own house!

In other news, a new exhibition at the AGO, Songs of the Future: Canadian Industrial Photographs, 1858 to Today opened this week. I designed the show and was pleased to see a review by BlogTO with lots of beautiful images of the exhibit. The curator, Sophie Hackett and I spent a long time choosing the wall colours and we're both really happy with the results. I believe we went through about 12-14 different shades of black before we found the right ones. Photography is one of the harder mediums to select wall colours for since its tonal range is so specific.

On Monday, I'll be back here with a brand new Hello! Neighbor post and the winner of the Alanna Cavanagh print. Have a great weekend! Enjoy these photos from New York photographer Lesley Unruh.
