gimme gimme.

"lovers" by John Lim
One of my favourite artists is a Canadian painter named John Lim. I fell in love with his work early on - my mom had a print of his hanging over our dinner table. I love the bright colours, the simplicity, and the quiet joy he captures in his work.  Ever since I can remember I have tried to get my mom to give me her print.  I've had no luck so far, but maybe this post will be the straw that breaks the camel's back and gets her to pass it on to me.  That's me trying to be subtle mom (hint, hint).


  1. with my mom, it's a sterling silver bracelet with multiple interlocking circular links that are about 1/2 inch long and different widths that she got from my dad as a gift when she was young.

    i love this bracelet, and have been coveting it since i was a kid. she doesn't even WEAR silver, so i don't understand why she won't cough it up.


  2. I am constantly pilfering my mom's jewelry. She is usually a pretty good sport about it but she wears yellow gold and I wear white gold so a lot of it isn't my style.
