Where the wild things are

Mythical Beasts


I received this gorgeous print of Mythical Beasts from my brother and sister in law this Christmas by Vancouver- based artists Sarah Edmonds and Tammy Lawrence from their studio Banquet Atelier & Workshop and thought it was too good not to share.

“Banquet Atelier & Workshop is a Vancouver-based studio engaged in creating quality goods celebrating the natural world and the animals that inhabit it: water birds, northern wildlife, forest creatures and under the sea. Partners Sarah Edmonds and Tammy Lawrence share an eye for bold and playful imagery.

All of our products are printed and produced in Vancouver with a fine attention to quality and design, and share a distinct beauty and uniqueness. We offer screen printed limited edition prints, stationery, wooden mobiles, and art kits for families everywhere.”

I love them all and have my fingers crossed that they might produce a dinosaur print some day… or even better, fabric!!




Woodkid – Run Boy Run

I haven’t blogging in months, but this incredible video by the equally incredible director and musician Yoann Lemoine aka Woodkid was just too good not to blog about…

Check out the video to Iron here


A selection of creepy costumes.. Why is a kid in a mask so scary?!

“The word Halloween is first attested in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-Even (“evening”), that is, the night before All Hallows Day. Up through the early 20th century, the spelling “Hallowe’en” was frequently used, eliding the “v” and shortening the word. Although the phrase All Hallows is found in Old English (ealra hālgena mæssedæg, mass-day of all saints), All-Hallows-Even is itself not attested until 1556.”

Have a hoot!



Don’t worry I’m not going to turn this blog into an obsessive twilight fan page but I do feel like I had to mark the opening of NEW MOON with a few pictures…AAAAHHHHHH!!

I CAN’T WAIT to see this guy…

…betray this girl

…who then befriends this guy who is in love with her and totally gutted when…

…She fights for the love of the guy who abandoned her…. ohhhhhh juicy!

Can’t wait, but I think I will wait so that I don’t get crushed in the cinema by crazy teenage twihards!




Here are a few photos from Halloween. I chose to be Max from where the wild things are which was a hoot! Saw loads of sweeeet costumes on saturday so thought I would post a few…


Yes, wearing long johns out in public was a very special experience!

This weekend a pal told me that Opening ceremony had some Where the Wild Things Are inspired clothing for sale as well as a collection of jewellery by Pamela Love, which I had to blog about. Below I have created a list of all things inspired by the amazing book by Maurice Sendak.
