a look back at 2013

A few of my (and your) favourite posts from the year that just passed. I've got some exciting things lined up for 2014 that I can't wait to share with you. DSC5731-550x827One of the highlights from this year's Hello! Neighbor posts - the home of Brad MacArthur and Jude Allison we featured in March. Did you see this place in the October issue of House and Home Magazine? We'll have lots more inspiring and original home tours in 2014.

I kicked off last January with the goal of eating no sugar. I'm thinking of doing that again. I'm totally sugared out - aren't you? I'll supplement with my favourite Owl & Goose green smoothies and lots of medjool dates.

zuger-2Finally I continued my Artist in Residence series and ended on a high note with a studio tour of designer Albert Zuger. If you're an artist, maker, creator and would like to be featured I'd love to hear from you.

2014 is going to be an exciting year. I can't wait to get started on Monday.
