Texture Feast




Toronto woke up to a flurry of snow today.
I got up in the early morning to use the bathroom and caught a glimpse of the white stuff falling outside my window. It was pretty out there but the best feeling was knowing I could climb back into bed and go back to being cozy. I have such a love-hate relationship with winter in this city. I love the snowfall but I hate the slush. I can deal with winter until about February. Then it's minus thirty degrees celsius and I'm pretty much over it. The extreme cold depresses me. All I ever want to do is stay home and read or watch movies. There are seasons for every activity, I guess.

I'm going to do some typing today. Not here. I'm going to sit at my new typewriter and hammer out a letter and post it overseas by the end of the weekend. I may even get around to doing some printing. 
I've planned a cozy and thoughtful day. Here's to letter writing and not catching cabin fever!


I found the images above and thought they were so inspiring. I love the detail of the textures and the tones. They are available at Lost and Taken, a site that provides free high res textures by Caleb Kimbrough. Good resource for some creativity, eh?
I first saw them here.

I totally feel you. Here in New York, we got some brief snow on Saturday and I had to go to Ikea -- couldn't put it off anymore. It was pretty brutal!

Slush is the worst! We've had a warm week here in Switzerland, but I've got a feeling it's going to snow again soon.
Didn't answer your question before, no I haven't posted my birthstory. Not sure, I think I'm going to keep that one close. Yeah, the things to blog or not to blog hey!
