In lieu of flowers and chocolates this February, here’s a collection of creative projects and tidbits
related to love and matters of the heart.
Manger | A beautiful blog celebrating life in the French countryside with delicious recipes and envy-inducing photography.
This creative brainchild of Mimi Thorisson makes me want to set up shop in a farmhouse in France.
The main reason that Manger is first on my Matters of the Heart list:
Mimi collaborates with her main squeeze and photographer, Oddur Thorisson.
The Love Umbrella Project | A series of photographs to show how love brightens Vancouver communities. Love this project!
Lovely Cup | The happy/fun/anything-is-possible feeling of love rolled into one of my favourite Grouplove tracks. Makes me want to drop what I’m doing and dance like no one’s watching.
Couplets | In the Globe and Mail’s special feature asking writers to propose fictional love matches,
Cathy Marie Buchanan (author of The Painted Girls) asks:
“Wouldn’t Little Women’s Jo march make an ideal partner for To Kill a Mockingbird’s Atticus Finch?”
Cathy, I couldn’t agree more.
