Design & Decor Blog
When I was designing my nursery I came across Monte, a Canadian manufacturer who makes gliders that fit into more modern home decor. It was refreshing to know that there were companies out there that took modern approaches to baby items. Although we didn’t get our glider from them, we bought our son Oscar this little Cubino chair from them for our TV room. Oscar is already in love (see him pictured above in it!)
I fell in love with the the charcoal and green colour combo as it was soft and soothing and went with the rest of the decor in our house.
Monte Cubino Chair, $109 + shipping.

Having lived in Toronto for only a handful of months, there are a lot of places that I have not yet had a chance to visit. I was told by a myriad of people that going to the CNE was a must. With only a few weeks of warm weather left, I finally made my way to the Ex this past Sunday. I saw the farm animals, walked through all the attractions and games and, maybe most importantly, had my first bite of a deep-fried Oreo.

I was never one of those kids who dreaded going back to school. On the contrary, I eagerly awaited my first day back, excited about all the possibilities the new school year promised. I enjoyed school, both the academic and the social aspects of it. I enjoyed learning. And I enjoyed the back to school shopping! It was never anything extravagant – but I can still remember the excitement to stock up for the coming year – especially shiny new school supplies! You know, replace my old pencil case, get a new set of Laurentian pencil crayons (this may have been the highlight!) and a new Finder Binder – please tell me you remember Finder Binders! Oh, I’m nostalgic just thinking about it!
