This weeks treasures!
1. The book of short stories “Mennonites Don’t Dance” . I was perusing the Globe and Mail’s Book section and found this review from Jim Bartley. Each story seems to possess a heart breaking quality. I don’t often migrate towards purchasing books of short stories but I’m thinking this one will definitely make its way to my book shelf. I always love finding a new Canadian author to love.
2. The website “The Swelle Life” has the prettiest images from Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti. Feminine, flattering and a wonderful reflection of a spring that seems incredibly elusive this -35C February morning. Here are my favourites from the photo collection:
3. The Avery Business Card from Romeo and Jules Bespoke Stationery. If I felt important enough to carry business cards around, if I had the need to possess business cards and hand them out in an attempt to network I’d want them to look like these. Aren’t they classic? Actually I love everything at Romeo and Jules.
4. The magazine “The Walrus“. Canadian. Well written. This months articles include “The Perils of Living A Longer LIfe”, “William Shatner’s weird Celebrity” and “Stalking Stieg Larsson”. I’ve mentioned their website before but I really want to tout the professionalism and high quality writing and publishing of the magazine itself. You can find it at any drugstore or bookstore near you.
Have a great week everyone!
