As spring is almost on our doorstep but a sheet of ice still covers our front lawn, I have noticed ice and crystals everywhere this winter.

We have seen the magic of them in our ravines and on our ice-covered branches. We love the idea that no two crystals or snowflakes are alike.

Despite the chill that blew daily through our...


I have been following @Blumenbabe’s, aka Heather Lafleur’s, high-fashion original illustrations on Instagram. Along with many others (including designer Anya Hindmarch), I have regularly commented on them and LIKED many of them.

So, it was to my great delight, that these beautiful Suetables illustrations appeared on my Instagram feed via...


I was lucky enough to join my man on a business trip to San Jose del Cabo. We stayed at the beautiful Hilton Los Cabos. http://www.hiltonloscabos.com

With the ice storms, heavy snow and -20 frigid winter temperatures at home, the timing was perfect.

I was so inspired by the colour,...


On a gray and bleak January day, my graphic designer friend, Pia Nummi, who oversees the branding and look of www.suetables.com, took me to Toronto’s Interior Design Show.

Our friendship spans over 20 years; we share a love of beautiful things, an interest in fashion, design, Pinterest, good food...


He is my first baby, my eldest - almost 15.

Thomas is a YouTuber, a video game enthusiast and a hockey player.

Cooperative, inquisitive and insightful. Funny.

He can put together a mean virtual football team and play against adults. And win.

He can help you sell hand-made duck-tape wallets. And get them in a store...


I am at my farm - my happy place - with three of my best friends.

It is foggy, icy and snowy outside but friends are drinking coffee and chatting happily inside, covered in fur blankets.

We have lots of magazines, food, chocolate, candles, chatter and laughter. And, of course, yummy chardonnay - even with lunch. With only a few...


Right now, our studio is full of new shipments of blank sterling silver charms, orders and words as people are choosing a word to act as a touchstone for 2014. According to the Chinese calendar, it is the year of the horse.

My word for 2014 is 'rooted'.

It ‘arrived’ this week while listening to author Danielle Laporte in my car....


We get such joy in creating stylish and meaningful sterling silver jewelry that celebrates life and loved ones. Our job gives us front-row seats to so many personal stories. Every once and a while, a story stops us in our tracks.

Marianne was one of those stories.

When the stunning heavy, sterling silver bar pendant arrived, I was...


Once upon a time, I was inspired by hand-stamped baby spoons and butter knives I saw on the coast of Maine. I bought vintage silverware and learnt to painstakingly stamp them with letters as housewarming or new baby gifts.

Stamping letters on these uneven surfaces was difficult but friends loved their personal nature. Once I had the...


It’s a rockin’ campy trend we’ve seen for a while now on the arms of fashion-forward men and women: a stack of mix-and-match bracelets in an unfussy manner in an array of colors, materials and textures.

I have named this series after my fav Taylor Statten Camp in Algonquin Park. Some think of them as friendship camp bracelets; others...
