My thoughts now turn to holiday wrapping. Love that these tags are winterish and not too traditional holiday. (My pumpkins just went in the compost this week...) Assorted Gift Tags $12/6. schoolyardstudio.com

I adore the artist Tammy Ratcliffe. Convinced that this was a necessary purchase for our new house, this is our first piece of 'real' art. Every time that I look at it I'm so glad that we brought it home.  "Be Back Soon" etching by Tammy Ratcliffe; canvasgallery.ca

Random, yes I know. Did anyone watch Beyoncé's live tour on TV last night? I caught a part of it where Jay-Z made a guest appearance on stage. Thought that it was so cute. That is all.  Photography via Benz and a Backpack.

As beautiful as the clothes are at the Pink Tartan boutique, it's the accessories make me want to visit again and again. A wonderfully edited selection of Kimberley Newport-Mimran's favourite things even the art work on the walls was brought from her home (including an Irving Penn photograph).
