A worthwhile trade

Last week, at her friends "turn of the century" party , Tina managed to strike up a trade with a nice young man. He was admiring her gloves which he thought would be perfect for his girlfriend and she was admiring his hat because it was so nicely worn in and seemed like it would fit her head. It worked out wonderfully.

Bowl cut since five...

Corey has had the same haircut since he was five years old. It is the basic bowl shape and it first appeared on the 21st of June, 1988 when his mother bought out her much loved wooden salad bowl and cut a perfectly straight line around the rim.

Perfect Autumn ensemble

Even though it is now Winter, Erin decides after several outfit changes, that Autumn is her inspiration and partners her olive green tights with her red beret and brolly. Pretty cute, don't you think?

Background much?

Tired from walking her dog, Kira (named after the gelfing in The Dark Crystal) stands next to the phone booth across the road from the park to daydream about a few of her favourite things.

So I'm trying something new and I'm not sure if it's little sister suggested backgrounds...a scary word for a lover of minimalism and negative space. Thoughts?

Off to the premier...

The other night Natalia put on her brand spanking new outfit and went to the screening of Wes Anderson's new film Fantastic Mr. Fox. She had a great time and thought the film was charming. She particularly liked the little red apples on Mrs Fox's dress and the cool calculator watch Mr Fox was wearing.

A wide load of fun...

Recently my little sister came to visit us from Tokyo and I've been having trouble getting back into the swing of things. Maybe because I'm still digesting the tonne of junk food (burgers, pizza, peanut butter cups, cherry pie etc etc) consumed when she was here. We had a great time catching up and we did heaps of touristy things like Venice Beach, Rodeo Drive, Ripley's Believe It Or Not Odditoruim (!) The Ghetty and ofcourse the LA Zoo. I'm hoping to recover soon and have some new things to post in the next few days.

My lovely Aunt

Ever since June was a little girl she looked up to her Great Aunt Gladis for she was a beautiful and kind lady with a lovely singing voice who told the most interesting stories about lands far, far away . For her 21st birthday Gladis gave June her much loved jacket which June treasures very much. Not only is it the perfect length on her, it also goes with almost everything in her wardrobe.

Brett Fox and Lacrosse

Brett Fox is the goalkeeper of the Montreal Lacrosse Club. He takes pride in this. The Club was established in 1856 by dentist Dr. William George Beers. One of Dr. Beers's innovations was the replacement of the hair-stuffed deerskin ball with the hard rubber ball. Brett tried playing with the deerskin ball once but he found it difficult.
