af-fect (ə fekt′; af′ekt′) * noun * an emotion or feeling attached to an idea or object.
Now and then musings about then and now, with a thrifty, sustainable perspective, through which I share my passion for affordable and inventive design, travel, food and beverage, architecture, and heritage.
I search Toronto (or any place I visit) for inspirational and frugal finds at design stores, flea markets, thrift shops, and rummage sales, and relish in reinventing and constructing a piece that I just couldn’t find. Through an appreciation for the past and a stewardship for the future, I reveal that inspiration and sources for decor, design, and life’s palette can come from both everyday and sometimes unexpected sources.
