make yourself comfortable

I was feeling pretty cat-like in my bedroom today; throwing myself on my bed only to stretch out and relax. I picked up a book here and there, thought about drawing but never did. Instead I took some photos of odds and ends that I've been working on or enjoying and decided to share them with you. I've been collecting some lovely books recently on my travels and at home. My favourite book stores in Toronto are The Monkeys Paw and Balfour Books. I just love collecting books of all kinds!

No collection is complete without Christian Bok's, Eunoia

I bought  Fighting the Whales for my 7 year old nephew in Scotland. I adore him. Hi Kieran! 

I found these in a little vintage book shop in Glasgow during a recent trip
