Provide has just received some beautiful new wood picture frames designed and made right here in Vancouver by Alex Henderson of Henderson Dry Goods. These frames are impeccably hand-crafted using a walnut veneer on solid birch. Renown for her wood work in jewelry, Alex is now is creating items for the home including these picture frames and trays (coming soon). We look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.

The other day Robert and I paid a visit to Martha Sturdy's showroom to select some new items from her beautiful collection. We were on a mission to pick-up more resin pieces in the new soft grey colour (shown above) that has been selling incredibly well since we introduced it at Provide a few weeks back. The gallery is a beautiful space that showcases her art, furniture and accessories – it is continually evolving as Martha introduces new creations. I loved the grouping of white marble resin tables in various shapes and her new wood objects.

MTH WOODWORKS' quest for future table bases starts deep within the forests of British Columbia – creativity sparks once a suitable piece is found. Some bases are salvaged from naturally wind-fallen trees, some from previously cut wood, while others are found washed-up on lake shores. MTH WOODWORKS then painstakingly peels, dries and sandblasts each individual stump to unveil its natural beauty and prepare it for a new found life as a BLOOM table.

Last night, Robert and I went to dinner at Morimoto, located in The Waikiki EDITION. The EDITION was conceived by Ian Schrager (one of the originators the boutique hotel concept) in partnership with Marriott International and is a beautiful lifestyle luxury resort. Although we didn't stay there (we wanted to be on the beach), we thought we would check out the property and enjoy a fabulous dinner at Chef Massahar Morimoto's Waikiki outpost of his famous New York restaurant. Both the hotel and the restaurant where great to see and experience – I think we know where we will stay the next time we are in Honolulu.

Robert and I are in Hawaii – enjoying a bit of break from the store and the cold weather in Vancouver.
On Thursday, we took a drive up to the North Coast which is famous for its surfing and a more laid back atmosphere – each beach we stopped at was beautiful and we were witness to some incredible waves. Lunch was at one of the many road-side Shrimp joints and we lucked out as some locals at the next table said we picked the best one.
