Festive Friday

I thought it might be fun to share festive holiday shots every Friday this month. In my first installment, I'll share some of the things that James and I spotted while out for a walk through downtown Vancouver last night. Look at these adorable little salt and pepper shakers! Many office buildings offer impressive decorations... Continue Reading →

Monet at Giverny

I won't pretend to be knowledgeable about art. I mean, I can tell the difference between impressionism, cubism and surrealism. But if you were to start discussing post-impressionism in great detail or ask for my opinion on baroque, I'd probably look for a polite excuse to escape before my eyes dried up and fell at...

Voyage sur la Route, Part Deux

I'm back with more photos taken on the road in France last year. Again, in no particular order.. I love buddy to the far right, gazing over his shoulder without a care in the world. Did you play that game as a child where you'd hold your breath for as long as you could while... Continue Reading →

Voyage sur la Route

As many of you know, my boyfriend and I spent 2 fun-filled weeks in France last year. We visited Paris, Normandy and Périgord Noir - more commonly referred to as the Dordogne region. Once outside of Paris, James and I rented a car and were able to see areas not easily accessible to us by... Continue Reading →

Largo di Torre Argentina

Largo di Torre Argentina is a square in central Rome with a steeped history. In a city literally stacked with historical sites, it's easy to pass by without a second glance. Known mostly for being the site where Julius Caesar was famously assassinated, Largo di Torre Argentina is also the location of the Torre Argentina... Continue Reading →

Gordon House

Late last week I saw an headline about a Frank Lloyd Wright house being acquired by a museum in New Hampshire, in the United States. For those not familiar with Mr. Wright, he made a name for himself by (among many things) being an innovative architect who's design focused on bridging humans and our natural... Continue Reading →

Église Saint-Sulpice

I'll never forget my first visit to Saint-Sulpice in Paris. That first time wasn't even planned. Because my visits to Paris are usually quite short, Saint-Sulpice never even made it onto my 'must see' list to be honest, and it was only because my cousin (who was lucky enough to call Paris home at the time)...

Lumière At English Bay

Lumière is an annual event here in Vancouver that is said to be inspired by light and artistic expression. A few minutes walk from our apartment, at English Bay, is the current home to one of this year's 4 public installations. Recently, on my way home from work one evening, I decided to check it out....

Definitely Dali

If you're strolling around Downtown Vancouver any time soon, you may come across Salvador Dali's, "Space Venus". I'd have said you'd find yourself face-to-face with the sculpture but, well, this Venus is clearly headless. Her neck is adorned with a typical Dali "melting" clock, made most famous perhaps by his 1931 painting, "The Persistence of... Continue Reading →
