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...


Recently, I felt an urge to give away an Erin Links bracelet letter pressed with LOVED. I decided to ask people to share who they would give it to if they won.

I was stunned.

People truly paused to really think about who in their life needed a bit more love and, more importantly, who might most need to hear it.

As I read...


I am at my farm with my two boys waiting for the rest of my family to slowly make their way here to celebrate Thanksgiving. 

This is my home.

I sleep deeply here in ‘big sky country’ (as our friend ‘big Mike’ calls it), under vast array of stars and and dead silence broken only by the sound of howling wolves.

The maple...
