These vintage postcards were tucked in my stocking care of my mother-in-law.
"Visiting churches and cathedrals. I am almost moved to tears sometimes at the beauty of these fine old buildings. I think they are like old paintings. Something we should enjoy while we can. They will never be equalled in our time."

"I hadn't yet opened the letter he'd sent me, in contrast to the customary envelope-ripping glee with which I usually greeted mail." Cheryl Strayed
I've been reading Wild this past week every spare moment I find - over breakfast, wrapped up in blankets, in the bath late at night. Cheryl Strayed hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in California and Oregon when she was 26 years old. It made me nostalgic for forests and camping and hiking - and being 26 years old.

The latest addition to my outgoing Christmas cards: Flakes Paperie knockout screen-printed cards. I'm so down with sending out cards picturing cassette tapes, bicycles and my city's skyline!
P.S. Flakes Paperie is at the One of a Kind show this week in Toronto!

I'm back from a week spent on the Pacific coast of Mexico. It was lovely and hot. Huatulco, being fifteen degrees north of the equator, is really, really hot! We swam, read a lot, played ping pong, painted, ate guacamole every day (sometimes twice a day!) and just enjoyed a week of summer in November.

Okay. I'm in love with this year's cross-stitch inspired Christmas stamps. They come in mini booklets - perfect for tucking into my moleskine notebook and bringing along to cafes this fall for card writing/hot chocolate dates!

Earlier this month I met One Plus One designer Jessie for tea and sweets. Jessie was in town visiting from her hometown of Winnipeg. We've been blog friends for a few years now so it was really nice to meet up!
I have now happily started writing Christmas cards - with these adorable One Plus One cards.
P.S. And how beautiful are these floral cards? Perfect for everyday note writing!

1. When my new mailman saw me collecting my mail last week he said "That's your mailbox? You get the cutest mail in the building!"
2. Hot chocolate at Clafouti.
3. A gold headband. Makes working out extra cute.
4. Toronto is in serious autumn mode.
5. Reading cookbooks. This Sunday it was Wild Rosemary & Lemon Cake.
