I stumbled upon this great blog called Planete Deco showcasing photos of beautiful homes from around the world. I'm happy I found this blog; not only because of its fabulous decor inspiration but for showing me this gorgeous Stockholm apartment, whose living room had me at hello when I came across it some time ago. Now I've got the rest of the apartment to lust after and so do you!
I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) on 'free admission Wednesdays' and had a blast looking at all the paintings. I took the above pic of a painting by Clarence Gagnon and I've fallen madly in love with this piece of art. Oddly, I couldn't find any information about this painting at the gallery (nor the internet!) so I'm left wondering what it was titled and where on earth I can find a print of it. If anyone knows - please tell me! But not all was lost because I enjoyed other great works by Lawren Harris and Arthur Lismer of the Group of Seven, and French master of impressionist painting - Claude Monet. I was shocked to learn that photography is now permitted in Canadian art galleries, but pleased nonetheless (I'm anti-flash for the record!). This way, I get to enjoy Gagnon's painting which for now shall remain nameless!

My boyfriend took this photo and made me promise I'd give him credit. He's very proud of himself!
Way to go Adam! First Australian to win a Masters tournament! And don't worry - that green jacket suits you just fine. And thanks for single-handedly making me a fan of professional golf; it had to be you! Sigh...
Sunday is for Sunday best, and my new Ann Taylor necklace and Topshop earrings fit the bill. I had such a nice day; it finally felt like spring and I enjoyed a yummy brunch at Café Fiorentina with great friends. So if I was to show you anything today that matched my mood - precious pearls, sparkling gems and fresh flowers are it. Here's to many more Sundays just like today!
