This year’s Art Toronto is sure to inspire. Modern and contemporary art will fill the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from October 26-29th and event goers will enjoy thousands of works of art from more than a hundred galleries from 23 countries. This is Canada’s only modern and contemporary international art fair so, go on, buy your tickets (less than $20)!

I attended Art Toronto 2011 and wrote about it here and here.

I usually buy my lint rollers at the dollar store but I love the fact that this one from MUJI has a home.

This would certainly add more pretty to my desk, don’t you think? And it would match the pencil and card holders I already own from Mackenzie Horan’s online boutique Design Darling.

The Penny Paper Co. is a Toronto-based stationery supply company owned by Lindsay Stephenson (of Little House Blog and BlogPodium fame). I’ve had my eye on her custom stamps for a while but I have only recently noticed these sweet cream-coloured drawstring bags.

Use them plain for wrapping small gifts or personalize them, fill them, and use them as party favours. Time to get crafty!
