Not Your Royal Sapphire

With all the talk of the royal wedding going on, there has been even more talk about the eighties style sapphire diamond cluster ring given to Kate for her hand.  I LuvZ sapphires, which are also my birthstone, but you will NEVER see me hunting down a knock-off.  If you are feeling Royal and want a sapphire for yourself I recommend being inspired by the royals and not copying the ring verbatim.    Have a look at the stunning sapphire settings above, if you want something a little more unique.

If you have ever been to New York City, or have watched Law and Order, Nurse Jackie or any other TV Show based in NYC involving blue-collar workers for that matter, you have surely seen the “we are happy to serve you” paper cups.  They have been immortalized in a ceramic version, which up until now if you live in Toronto you could only order online.   The cups are now available at Up to You for only $17.00.

I am abandoning my usual simple format for the rest of the week/weekend, becuase there is so much cool stuff at design week I would like to share with everyone!  Here are a few of my favourite things at the offsite location Bookhou.  The installation is called Capacity and was currated by Katherine Morley & Erin McCutcheon.
