Almost All Canadian

Happy Friday, my friend! You'll be seeing a lot more of me now, now that the
weather has made it comfortable for picture taking AND Paul has finished his
old job and in a couple of weeks will start as a transcriptionist like moi! People
keep asking us if we're going to get sick and tired of each other both working at
home together. I suppose that's a valid question... for most people.  But this is
Paul and we've been best-friends since we were 17! If I haven't gotten sick and
tired of him yet, I doubt I will now! I'm also really looking forward to the ability
we now have to create ourselves a little homestead. We've been  looking into
into raising our own chickens and I found some great mum and pop businesses
that sell non-GMO seeds.  My mom and I will each grow our own veggies and
fruits and then trade what the other didn't grow. I couldn't be more ecstatic! 
And now on to the clothes. Yes, this has to be one of my favourite outfits ever.
I was over the moon when I discovered this skirt whilst thrifting - anything that
can be paired with brown is a winner in my books! And although I absolutely
adore this clutch, there's something about animal print. I'm rather hesitant when it
comes to animal print, I find there's a very fine line between hoochie mama and
classy lady, but this clutch is the perfect subtle accessory.  It's also one of the
only things I own that is made in Canada (and those items are all vintage). It's
a reminder of the days before the death of craftsmanship and integrity and the
beginning of large scale across-seas factories with conditions only our worst
nightmares could imagine.  Maybe that's what makes me love it all the more!
