lazy april sundays at home

cosy-in and relish the quiet day that a hazy april sunday affords. warm spring rains tend to slow us down, seek the comfort of home, and somehow inspire an appreciation of the simpler things in life.

whether classic pieces or newly cherished, we have a little more time to take pleasure in the details as we surrender to the rain and forget about schedules.

a favourite of ours to delight in is the new line of hand-thrown earthenware that Canvas has developed with judy jackson. each piece is organic in shape, a fresh take on the reemerging americana trend.

we're adoring them this hazy sunday, paired with a neutral table setting: natural woods and linen napkins. fresh tulips only sweeten the arrangement :)

Celebrate Earth Day!

Thursday April 24th is Earth Day!

La Merceria is offering a free coffee to anyone who brings in their own eco-friendly mug tomorrow! We hope that a regular coffee can inspire us to do more small acts to reduce waste and conserve energy throughout the rest of Earth Day, and every day :)

Sans reusable cup?

Our 'this is not a paper cup' eco-cup is even more amazing when filled with a cafe con leche!

Yellow Owl Workshop endeavors to create the most eco-lovin' products by using non-toxic water-based inks and 100% PCW recycled paper.

I feel so blessed to be surrounded by the most amazing group of girlfriends, as you can see on these pics my dearest friend Rochelle and my sister Maria recently hosted a lovely baby shower for me and I couldn't be more grateful it was a a wonderful afternoon of great company, laughter and lots of love.

I hope you have a wonderful easter weekend, and whatever you do I hope you get to spend some quality time with friends and family!
