My name is Mona and I am a Graphic Designer who lives in Toronto. I’m always dreaming about how I can decorate, refurbish, update, expand, organize and improve my life. I have champagne taste and a beer budget but that doesn’t stop me from doing the best I can to organize and decorate the apartment I share with my loved one and our tiny pooch
This is my collection of beautiful things that make everyday living a little more special!

    Hello fellow Canadian! And thank you for following my blog! I was looking at your’s and saw the picture of the Diana. Do you have one yourself? I don’t know much about camera’s, besides the basics, so I didn’t want to comment after all of those great suggestions :P… But I have a couple of Diana mini’s, a Holga and for digital I use a Canon Elph 300hs… Obviously the digital’s much simpler, but I do love the film :D! Cheers from the East Coast!

    • Hi! Unfortunately, I don’t own the Diana, I found that image on Pinterest and I thought it was a lovely photograph!
      I am going to get a good point and shoot digital camera and use certain techniques I’ve read about, and I’ll use photoshop to edit the lighting, etc.

      I’ll see how it goes. If I don’t like it, I can purchase a DSLR – it’s good to have both anyway!

    Thank you for following my blog. Appreciate it. I’ll be hanging around. This is really a cool place.

  12. Hey!

    I don’t know if you remember, I commented a few weeks ago about moving to a small cottage that was short on storage space.

    Boy is this place small. I’m still figuring out where to put stuff. I’ll take pictures when I can clear a few more boxes out of here. Would like a couple inexpensive decor ideas as well – I don’t want to put a lot of cash in this place.

    If you’re still game in helping me figure out a good solution to storage & decor, shoot me an email: seattlecoffeezombie@gmail.com


  13. The name of your blog is incredibly interesting. I’m an Italian architect and I love the idea of decorating probably not only interiors, but most of all cities! 🙂
