My little finds yesterday

I was at the Last Thursday on Alberta last night and found two things I just love.

One is a super sweet little book necklace created by Locket 2 You. It's a hand bound mini leather book with a vintage style key attached. I thought how cool would it be to have artist friends draw in it, write a few of my wishes, or have some little love notes sprinkled throughout. So sweet.

The other was a mini illustration by artist Yo Mutsu. It's a woman super hero silk screening. I thought it was such a sweet illustration.  Plus nothing like pull'n the squeegee!

Love this Bramble one, it's really pretty inspired by the Bramble cocktail - a lemon sour base, gin, and a float of blackberry liqueur. You can get the recipe here

Cosmo-ville comes in different flavors- Pear, Mandarin or Mango. Yum.

 Espresso Martini- These look rather elegant.

Rainbow shots!

Mimosa with orange flower water. So pretty.

Butterfly Maps

Love these butterflies made from maps by artist Joseph Warren. This looks like a fun an easy craft to do as well. All you need are a few maps, a craft knife, a shadow box and some pins. The results are pretty spectacular!

Cool Interactive Story for your iPad

Your kids will love this interactive story by William Joyce  and Moonbot Studios. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is an immersive animated ibook that was created for the iPad. The illustrations are awesome and it looks so fun to read! They also created an interactive book-app around the story and a standalone animated film which you can get on apple apps. Check out the movie trailer here too!

"When you open up the app, it doesn't waste your time with teaching-screens about how to interact with it -- it just smoothly enters the story. When a house gets picked up in a tornado, you can use your fingers to swipe and spin it around -- but you don't have to. "
So cool!

Canning Jars

I've been thinking about all the canning I'm going to be doing soon. I just love the whole process of growing my own food and preserving and sharing with others after the harvest. Last year I canned cucumbers, grape jelly, berry preserves and infused lots of vodka! I try to give away as much as possible (except maybe the vodka:) and I always end up using my empty jars throughout the year. I love the little ones, they are perfect for wine glasses at my book circle.

There are so many other uses for canning jars too.  I love them in the home, they add charm to the place. Check out these great ideas, most with tutorials!

Lovely lights from Lamp Goods. 

Or make your own, found on Design Sponge.

I have these simple ones!
