soilet? tink?






ok, so i really want this. some old lady used to live in my house. she had some mobility issues, or a really small bladder, the story remains unclear to this day. since there was only a bathroom on the second floor of the house, she had toilet installed in the kitchen pantry. if that's not awkward enough. that pantry has a little person sized door that leads opens into the stairs to the basement. it's not even a 1/2 bathroom. it's a toilet in a closet. no sink. no ventilation. nothin. this combo unit designed by roca would be perfect!! and and and? it has a self contained greywater system that reduces water waste! that would hopefully help off put all that water i use for my really really long showers.

wonder if this costs extra.

where the wild things are jewelry

















i made my own version of "carol" (aka moishe) & "max" for HQ's gallery show featuring artwork by local and international artists inspired by maurice sendak's 1963 book "where the wild things are". check out headquarter's montreal vernissage saturday october 10. for my piece in the show, i put a little silver "carol" and "max" in a small clear glass lidded terrarium full of moss, succulents and a couple of rocks. and didn't take any pictures of it, so you'll have to go to the gallery to see it! the show will be up for all of october.

"max" and "carol" are cast in solid sterling silver, hand finished, then oxidized to bring out the details, and the polished to a high shine. the little monster has scaly feathery textured detail on his legs, a bushy tail, a slight overbite and some shiny teeth. little max has tiny button details, and trapdoor pyjamas. they're both 1" tall, 1.25" with the jump ring.

available exclusively in my etsy shop. find max here... find carol here...
they come on a numbered card. limited edition of 100.

and if you've never read the book, you can pick it up here, or at HQ!

baaaaah, woof woof.





got wood?





wow. super useful. an app that helps you identify wood. over 50 species. the developers say it's ideal for gunsmiths. now if only canada would get a new shipment of iphone 3GS. i've been waiting over a year to buy an iphone. a year ago, i was told, wait, don't buy the 3G to wait for the new one. i waited. the 3GS came out. fido changed my contract, and i wasn't able to get out of it, or renew to a new contract for another half a year. now, all of canada has been sold out of the iphone 3GS. for months. still waiting. even my mom has an iphone. anyway, if i had an iphone i'd buy this app. maybe i can also find an app that will make me less bitter.
