"A lifetime of diarrhea," plus 4 more great tweets






I want to rub this plate all over my face

You were wondering how excited anyone could get over plates, right? The answer: REAL EXCITED. Because look:


How gorgeous is that?

But wait, there's more:


This just makes me want to throw all my plates in the garbage and buy these new ones but I won't because "environment" and "nature" and "waste" and stuff but really, these are going on my Christmas list and then on my wall and also probably under some cake.

I would pack that bowl. I would pack that bowl so hard.
Okay, enough enthusing. Here are the details:

These are part of House Party, Drake General Store's first-ever housewares collection. The Canadian Landscape Set ($15-$18) features iconic Canadian scenes printed onto plates, bowls, teacups and saucers.

You'll be able to get it in-store and online at Drake General Store starting September 16.

Also? Hang tight because later this week I'll be bringing you news of Drake holiday pop-up shops at The Bay.

So good.

Stripy Sunday: Picnic edition

Sure we all dream of whipping up Gwyneth's picnic recipes, packing them beautifully and heading to the waterfront like it's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, but really what happens is we somehow end up at the splash pad with half an apple, old milk and inappropriate footwear.

But a girl can dream. And I would dream of a stripy Sunday picnic. With donuts.

Charming vintage Hudson Bay Picnic cooler, $199 USD on eBay.



Cozy fleece picnic blanket, $40 on sale for $30 in-store and online at The Bay.

Now you'll want these candy-coloured cameras

Okay, you know what? Not all of these cameras are candy-coloured. But if you insist on taking my alliteration literally, you can go away now and stub your toe. Anyway these are definitely, definitely all cameras that you'll want. 

Say cheese. Say please. Say venereal disease. 

Imperial Mark XII mint green 1950s camera with detachable flash unit and original box, $100 USD.

La Sardina Camera Domino. Chic and tiny like you wish you were. $69 CAD (ahahahahahahsixty-nineahahahah)

Vintage blue Kodak Brownie, $55 USD. One time I read about a Beatles groupie taking George Harrison's picture with a Brownie after she slept with him and now that's all I think about when I see a Brownie camera. With any luck, the same fate will now befall you.

Diana F+ Honeycomb, just beeeecause it's so sweet. $99 CAD.

Imperial Mark XII flash camera circa 1958. Hot, hot, hot! $89 USD.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera. Sorbetastic! is a word I just made up because of this camera's colour. $100 USD.

Which one's your fave? Leave a comment and let us know. It's the Brownie, right? Because you're a pervert for George Harrison?

Me too. Good job.

Stripy Sunday: Victoria Day canoe edition

Here's the Hudson Bay Company multistripe canoe. She's a real beaut.


It boasts cedar planks and ribs with ash gunwales, whatever all that stuff is. Some of it is also made out of mahogany, which sounds fancy.  It's painted by hand and it's $7,500 CND in-store or online at The Bay.

Surely it's worth every cent.
